Bit of a tangent but Samurai armor is not designed to keep you from dying. It's designed to keep you from dying to arrows so you can live to die properly to melee weapons.

It aint of topic mate.I said shastars could be any shastars.I also like those samurai katana swords infact im thinking of getting atleast one.If some relative or friend or even i myself go to japan the first thing theyll hv to do is buy a katana for mee.I also really like those samurai helmets they r very ornate,cute and beautiful.

Isit I didnt know that, their helmets look really cool.   Iv read abit about samurai culture and they believed in dying in the battle field as the best way of dying. 

A lot of them were also against getting modern weapons when the Americans came.  A bit similar to akalis.

Many old warrior traditions have many things in common.

Samurai armour was really quite deceptive when it came down to appearance, it looks really fragile and not fit for purpose, but was extremely tough.  The Samurai developed a special lacquer which was used to toughen natural materials.  This enabled the armour to retain toughness and lightweight properties which enabled the Samurai to move with speed and agility.  They wore face masks that were intended to frighten the enemy whilst masking ones own expressions during battle.
