What? Just Kidding

Gimme a break, man. I wasn't THAT interested in learning about Japanese history before 2013, and I haven't had the chance to try to find it since.

Besides, Shinchoukoki, Japonius Tyra ...

Well, for starters, a sandal bearer likely wouldn't have been part of that whole shudo thing that pages usually were. And pages would have very basic, simple duties-carrying a daimyo's sword or helmet ...

The fact a sandal bearer comes into direct contact with a Daimyo lord means the person has to be trusted... I would be more interested in how/what exactly Hideyoshi do to get Nobunaga's attention... ...

I didn't think anybody actually did, or... did they? O___O
