A samurai is a member of the Japanese warrior caste. They were the military nobility and officer caste of medieval and early-modern Japan. By the end of the 12th century, "samurai" became almost entirely synonymous with "bushi," and the word was closely associated with the middle and upper echelons of the warrior class. While the samurai numbered less than 10% of then Japan's population, their teachings can still be found today in both everyday life and in modern Japanese martial arts.

Uma was a particular kind of samurai. She was not a man. She was a blonde girl from the 21st century and was not Japanese. She was born as a consequence of "Dangerous Liaisons" between "Henry & June." She could never "Kiss Daddy Goodnight" as he ran away before she was even born. When Uma asked her mother why she had an affair with her father, she just said as an excuse:

"Even Cowgirls Get the Blues."

As Uma was growing up she dreamt of becoming a hero like "Robin Hood" or "Batman & Robin." She was not "Sweet and Lowdown" like the "Beautiful Girls" she saw "A Month by the Lake" during summer vacations. After reading the adventures of "Kill Bill: Volume 1" and "Kill Bill: Volume 2" Uma decided to become a samurai. She had no interest in "Motherhood" and listened to her "Final Analysis": "Where the Heart Is" is all that should matter. And Uma's heart was into becoming a samurai. No men on Earth could call her "My Super Ex-Girlfriend" as she never had a boyfriend. Since she made her decision "The Life Before Her Eyes" looked so bright.

Uma's journey as a samurai took her to Japan, where she battled the Tokyo yakuza. She wanted to take revenge on a team of assassins and their leader Bill after they tried to kill her. Uma traveled to Okinawa, Japan, to obtain a sword from legendary swordsmith Hattori Hanzo, who had sworn never to forge a sword again. After learning that her target was Bill, his former student, he crafted his finest sword for her. Armed with her new sword Uma tracked down Bill's team of assassins at a Tokyo restaurant, the House of Blue Leaves, and defeated and killed half of them.

After having assassinated Deadly Vipers O-Ren Ishii and Vernita. Uma went to the trailer of Bill's brother and Deadly Viper Budd, planning to ambush him. She killed him with a black mamba. Budd expected a sword, he was not prepared for the black mamba. That's what Uma called a good "ambush."

Uma also ambushed Elle, the last member of the team of assassins still alive, and they fought. She plucked out Elle's remaining eye with the help of her sword and left her screaming in the trailer with the black mamba.

In Mexico, Uma met a retired pimp, Esteban Vihaio, who helped her find Bill. She tracked him to a hotel, and discovered he assumed she had died and mourned her for three months. When Uma learned the truth about the reason why Bill wanted to murder her. She disabled him and stroke him with her sword. Bill made his peace with her, took five steps and died.

Having taken her revenge Uma left "Down a Dark Hall" heading to "The House That Jack Built" to "Smash" the "Duke of Groove," "The Accidental Husband" who treated her of "Nymphomaniac" in public. This time it was not to get revenge. It was to clear her name and her reputation. In this particular situation Uma had only three options: kill him, marry him or "harakiri," which is a ritual suicide by disembowelment with a sword, formerly practiced in Japan by samurai as an honorable alternative to disgrace or execution. What option did she choose? She killed him of course. She didn't want to become the wife of a man who would treat her as a "Nymphomaniac." She also considered her own life was worth more than his.

"I was an escapee of childhood. I always wanted to grow up."

To become a samurai and follow The Bushido Code instead of her mother's orders.

"Boredom is a great motivator."

As a child Uma was bored. So boredom was a great motivator for her to make a change and have an exciting life as an adult. A samurai's life for a woman? What's more exciting!

"Change is usually preceded by some kind of drift."

In Uma's life to become a samurai was the "change." So what was the drift that preceded it? "Kill Bill: Volume 1" and "Kill Bill: Volume 2."

"It is technically a failure when you don't try." "It's taken me a long time to learn to accept the risks and just be willing to try it over and over again."

Uma tried it over and over again because she didn't want to be "technically" a failure. It takes a long time to try it over and over again. You have to accept the risk of losing patience.

"Daring to me is having courage; it's a daily meditation to take breath and find strength."

I thought that daily meditation to take breath was for the purpose to find balance and peace of mind. It seems it's not the case for Uma. She does it to find strength and courage.

"So, goodnight Uma. What if you had chosen to become a samurai out of "Hysterical Blindness?"
