Samurai Girl is a series of six novels by author Carrie Asai. It tells the story of Heaven Kogo, who as a baby was the lone survivor of a plane crash and was adopted by the wealthy Kogo family. At age nineteen, she is arranged to marry Teddy Yukemura, but her wedding is crashed by a ninja that kills her brother. She escapes to find out her lavish life and family isn't what she thought it was and must train under her brother's friend, Hiro, the ways of the samurai to protect herself and loved ones.
The series takes place in an alternate version of Japan called Great Japan, in an alternate timeline where the Tokugawa shogunate remained active and has remained isolated from the rest of the world. The main character of the series of Muneakira Yagyū, a young man attending Buou Academic School, a giant academy located at the base of Mount Fuji where people train to become samurai warriors.
The photo, which was uploaded to Reddit by a friend of the girl's father, is making the rounds on Internet. Many are speculating the photo shows a samurai ghost because the beach the girl and her dad were on was across a samurai graveyard.
Parents need to know that martial arts-style fighting and samurai weaponry are central to the plot of this miniseries, so there are lots of physical battles with many injuries and deaths. In one scene, a man is stabbed and killed; another implies (but doesn't show) a man's beheading: His killer swings a sword at him and is later shown cleaning blood from both the weapon and his red-splattered shirt. That aside, this action drama -- which is based on a series of young adult novels by Carrie Asai and Renato Alarcao -- touches on Japanese legends and customs and features a strong female lead, who must draw on her own inner strength to fulfill her destiny and challenge the evil she encounters.
For 19-year-old Heaven Kogo (Jamie Chung), the thought of her upcoming wedding stirs lots of emotions, none of which are joyous. The adopted daughter of a wealthy Japanese family, Heaven's marriage was arranged by her father, Tasuke (Anthony Brandon Wong), as a way to further his business prowess, and Heaven's heart is heavy as she pictures her future with a man she doesn't love. But when the wedding ceremony is interrupted by a ninja attack, and her beloved brother delivers a cryptic message before he's killed, Heaven is left to solve the mysteries her family has hidden about themselves -- and her. With the help of her brother's trusted friend, Jake (Brendan Fehr), she must master the samurai arts if she's to hold her own against the powerful forces bent on destroying her.
But the fact that this story is rooted in the samurai arts means that there's a hefty amount of violence, so it's not completely age-appropriate for kids and tweens. People are stabbed, shot, and impaled by swords, and a central plot point is the existence of a group of assassins that does the murderous bidding of their power-hungry employer. All of that said, teens and adults are sure to be drawn in by the story and the heart-pounding suspense.

As much as I don't like to admit it, when I think about raising a little girl, I still think about cultural norms like pigtails, dolls, and hopscotch. Granted, I also think about things like instilling confidence, self-acceptance, compassion, creativity, being body positive, and a lack of fear about being assertive, ambitious, and stealing all the STEM-field careers, but those still come with the stereotypes. So you're probably not surprised when I tell you that I don't necessarily think about swords when it comes to parenting a daughter. However, this recent video of a young samurai sword master who happens to be a little girl named has me re-thinking that tendency.
