Have you done a RP on nakano takeko? She's a female samurai and she's really badass. Just wondering! Love your work btw!
I haven’t yet! She’s on the list though. If you want entries on onna bugeisha, you could check out my entries on Masako Hojo and Tsuruhime Ohori. Other cool ones on my list, to get to when I have time:
Yaeko Yamamoto (gunnery expert!)
Empress Jingu (who was made up to legitimate the invasion of Korea, but a fascinating story regardless)
Empress Himiko (more priestess than warrior; likely partial basis for Jingu legend)
Hacchoutsubete Yatsushiro (fictional, never been able to find much on her; I just know she rode a battle wolf into war while pregnant)
Kiyohime (fictional, but turns into a dragon, so that’s cool)
Takiyashahime (who’s a ghost, and spoopy as heck)
Kaihime Narita (unsure if she’s fictional or not)
Nohime (Nobunaga’s double-agent spy consort)
Hashihime (husband cheats, she becomes demon who assaults people on bridges, name literally means “bridge princess”)
(I’ve here defaulted to the English convention of the surname coming second – so Hojo is the family name, Masako is the given name. With Hacchoutsubete, I’m not sure which one is the surname.)
They actually did a drama with Yaeko Yamamoto in it a little bit ago. This is how she was represented:
…although this is (I believe) what she looked like in real life:
