    Yeah... I've noticed that the company has created a second amazon page for their product, identical to the first but with a higher price and without our negative feedback.

    Funny, that.

    My opinion is, in all likelihood, worth exactly what you are paying for it.

    Done.

    " 'This is the traditional samurai style.'

    Really? Which time period? Sengoku Jidai? Tokugawa Jidai?
    What level of samurai? Ashigaru? Daimyo?

    The answer to all these questions is: None of the above.

    Call these "modern warrior pants" or "anime pants" or something. But calling them Traditional Japanese Samurai pants is false advertising, because there is NOTHING traditional about them, and they were NEVER worn by samurai."

    Oh my good god!!

    I can see them coming to an XMA tournie near you. Just add a pre-teenie 'master' with his own tin-foil samurai sword and the xma traditional 'blue in the face' scream (sorry I meant to say Kiai but just couldn't bring myself to use the term) on the few twitches (sorry techniques) they can fit in between cartwheels and flipping around like demented manga frogs!!

    Also..........was MC Hammer ahead of his time?

    Cheers
