However, there's more in this docu-drama that is said to be both educational and entertaining, reports Unilad


That's because it isn't just all about killing and snatching the throne, but a well detailed introduction to Japan's feudal system.

With the education coming from Japan's feudal system, the entertainment comes from the main character of this docu-drama, named the One-Eyed Dragon, something that's also Game of Thrones-esque. 

Date Masamune as he was originally known, was a warlord who plucked out his own eye to combat smallpox infection.
