*clears throat*
(Been a while since I've been on here. Things have.... changed?)

Anyhows...
I'm doing some mad fast sketches today, just brain flarps and such, mostly trying to work out characters for a new idea I had.
and that idea revolves around....*drumroll please*

SAMURAI!


I haven't got specifics worked out too far yet, but I'm trying to decide on a setting...modern or trad./time period?

So....here's the question I have for you all. What are the most annoying things you find in Samurai stories. (Magical or non-magical)
What sort of tropes/cliches/steroetypes just tick you off? What about some common pitfalls in the story/plot lines?

Feel completely liberal here, this is sort of just for fun. (and try not to pick on any one series too much please....xD)
