    Hey history channel. Samurai and Ninja were actually of the same class. The 3 main ninja manuals that came down through history are from samurai families. Fujibayashi Yasutake wrote the Bansenshukai, he was from a samurai family. The Shinobi hiden was the Hattori family i.e. Hattori Hanzo. And the Shoninki was written by Natori Sanjuro Masazumi, a retainer of Tokugawa Yorinobu in Kishu. There are countless other facts to include, especially how the two most famous regions to produce ninjutsu Iga and Koka are actually Samurai families. This means the Samurai of Iga and Koka used ninjutsu. There are definitely brilliant minds on the historical ninjutsu subject to look up. The best quote to go by is "all ninja were samurai but not all samurai were ninja".

    Dear History: please, please, PLEASSEEEE!!! continue uploading these older programs that hark back to when your channel was actually full of shows about history, and therefore, when your channel was actually good. There are so many options: this series, Lost Worlds, Engineering An Empire, Dangerous (Suicide?) Missions, and so, so, SO many others.

    Not much would make me happier than if you did continue to upload programs such as those. The only thing better would be if you reverted your actual channel back to reruns of those shows and shows like them; and also, even better yet, created new programming in the vein…

    Sincerely, a fanatical lover of history <3

    I'm sure I could quickly and easily find this out with a quick bit of googling but: anyone know where and when Japan initially got horses from? They're obviously not native to the Japanese islands…right…?
