Gamer gate has been trying to use Bayonetta as a rallying point, and criticism of it as proof of a “feminist agenda” in reviews

They’ve been trying to get Hideki Kamiya, creator of Bayonetta, to support them

Well, he tweeted this today.

A Great Day For Japanese Samurai Enthusiasts

historical-nonfiction:

Masamune was one of the greatest Japanese swordmakers (or the greatest, I don’t want to get involved in the historian wars). He lived and worked in the late 1200s and early 1300s in the Kanagawa Prefecture. Even during his lifetime, Masamune was acknowledged as a great swordmaster. His reluctance to sign his swords, however, has made identifying his works difficult. In fact, for the past 150 years, no new Masamune swords have been confirmed.

After centuries of civil wars, local squabbles, and pirates, swords tend to get lost or lose identification, no matter how impressive their pedigree. Last year, a man brought a sword, which had found its way into his personal property, to the Kyoto National Museum to be appraised. The resident historian and sword expert (what an awesome title) has after months of study concluded it is a new Masamune sword. The particular sword is called the Shimazu Masamune. It was given in 1862 by Iemochi, the 14th Tokugawa shogun, to the Imperial Family marking his marriage to Princess Kazunomiya.

OMG.  A new Masamune!  Do you see how the air curves itself along the blade?  I may be the only person for miles who thinks this is the coolest thing since the first Mars lander or the Richard III remains, but I can hardly breathe!  I saw the Masamune katana (longsword) that NYC’s Metropolitan Museum of Art had on exhibit for a while, and it was just the same (if the photo isn’t that blade).  It was so much plainer than the other over-decorated court swords of the period, but it didn’t need decoration.  It had its own authority.

I only wish we could have seen a picture of the new discovery!
