Rakuno posing as a samurai

Last week I got my Samurai Job level to 60, finishing their first story arc.

Of all the Job stories I experienced so far (which weren't all that many) Samurai has been the most enjoyable one. It is probably my new best favorite, replacing the Pugilist and the first Monk Job stories.

But to be honest I was a bit worried at first about the story. I was afraid it would rely heavily on the western tropes about samurai: some terribly, heavy handed talk about some vague concept of honor or something along those lines. I know, it was a silly feeling since Square-Enix is a japanese company and Japan have their own set of tropes when it comes to samurai.

In the end my tendency to overthink stories and tropes end up tripping me a lot on this particular Job story as I tried to figure out where it was going.

WARNING: SPOILERS ahead for the level 50 to 60 Samurai Job quest.
