Sword for Truth by the late Osamu Dezaki(Citation needed) is the journey to the truth. It is a tale about an asshole who love to kill and have sex and have ambiguous motive journeying around the world, killing, having sex and having ambiguous motive. Being such an asshole, we should call him asshole from now on in this post.

Take a guess who is the asshole?

The plot starts off with a white tiger on loose for some reason and people got killed. Said asshole shows out and slash the tiger into half. This is clearly a realistic portrayal on how naive animal rightists are. Give stupid rights to endangered animals will get you killed. Sometimes, you should just outright slash them into half if they try to eat you. Of course, you can also interpret this sence by tying it with the philosophical “to be or not to be” situation because determining between letting an endangered animal eat you or survive by killing them is a difficult morality choice.

Next scene, female thief tries to steal from asshole, asshole slashes thief’s shirt to expose breast. Thief got shocked and stand still like a dumbass. This scene is clearly a criticism on gender inequality and how female has certain responsibility in this inequality. You see, if said female thief is not so shocked by having her breast exposed, she might have the chance to steal from this asshole. It clearly indicates how all female population shouldn’t be so shy about showing their boobs, men can show their boobs everyday without hesitation and they don’t get all shocked and that’s why unless women can do the same, there wouldn’t be equality in this world.

Cut to scene where ninjas try to kill asshole in a temple:
This shows that people are bound to harm you if you are an asshole, no gods or buddha in temple can save you from ninjas. Unless, of course you kill all the ninja and make yourself a bigger asshole, which said asshole unsurprisingly did.

I guess I will stop here for now because it is only 10 min in and this is the amount of deep lessons you can take away from this show. I might just become a professor if I continue to watch such thought provoking and educational cartoon.

It also have something to do with lesbian sex later on.
