I have to wait 90 days to change my name : He should’ve commit sudoku

Drunk Napoleon : Oh my god, his acting is so realistic! He should win an Oscar.

Gul Dukat : Mishima was a hero, the last Japanese man with intact testicles.

AmethysicalDragon : He committed not alive.

Iam Lost : So He was basically against anime and hentai

PurpleThe Hunter : *Press F to commit seppuku*

Adolf Hitler : He killed himself so he wouldn't have to see anime.

Not A Robot : I hope simple history can do a video of that one Japanese teenager who saved Japan from becoming communist by assassinating the leader of the Japanese Socialist Party with a sword on live television in 1960.

Aeon BRSK : The Chinese at the time were already developing their own atomic bomb, the Soviets already had thousands, if that lunatic got what he wanted Japan would disappear from the map ._.

JOSEJOSESITO : Then Logan Paul filmed his dead body

Flawless Binary : T E N N O H E I K A B A N Z A I

Kramer Todd : Note how he didn't fight in the war. Maybe his views would have changed if he would have seen it first hand.

Henrique Maximo : There's a George Lucas' film about him.

Streety101101 : what man doesn't want to defend his god emperor from leftists? respect.

Iskander 122 : *Top 10 anime deaths*

Inquisitor McDakka : He is a patriot but I can't agree of his idea to bring back Japan's imperialist past. The country's infamous reputation is the reason why her neighbors still dislike them. He was no hero but a fool clinging to an ideal that made his people act like they are better than the others. Also no he did not commit suicide because of anime and hentai. Anime back then is different than it was now since it was used to help the Japanese to recover their morale after the devastation of ww2. Folks who keeps trying to say it was the reason are just trolls who keeps kicking a dead horse and didn't even listen to the video.

Gerardo Reyes : Amazing story and great video

Jayson Ducharme : Love Mishima. Anyone interested should read his short novel, The Sailor who Fell from Grace with the Sea. As well as the Sea of Fertility. Beautiful writer. Wish more of his poetry was translated. "The essence of a flower is to fall" - Mishima's death poem, written moments before his suicide. I don't think he believed the coup would be a success. I think he wanted to die gloriously, which he was unable to do during WW2. If you read his work, he always romanticized death and suicide. In "Confessions of a Mask," he writes that his first erotic experience was seeing a Renaissance painting of a man tied to a tree and shot with arrows. And "Patriotism" is an idealized novella about suicide. He was a disturbed man.

Tyler Durden : Only if he would been successful. He would have banned anime

No this is patrick : " All according to *keikaku* " TL note: keikaku means plan

私 Invictus 刀 : *"Tenno Heika Banzai"* Such honor.. im touched.

Patavinity : Why do you call him an actor? He's best known as a writer and that was his most important work.

trycoldman23 : *BANZAIIIIIIiiiiiiii.......*

Somali Nationalist : Think of what could've been, if he was successful anime would not be a thing today.

Zuzu : This is so sad Alexa play Doki No Sakura

IrkenExile : I'm sorry, but he was a damn fool and a madman

Simi822 : Calling Mishima a mere ACTOR is insulting, he was a prominent author and if he would not go down as he did then he would win the NOBEL prize as he was on the short whoever was behind the creative of this video should be ashamed

Apalaharti Sebuahnama : Complete insanity, a suicidal maniac who want to make japan spread more blood upon the new "peaceful" world

Luxe Luux : A few things I know is that yukio is a direct descendant of the first Tokugawa shogun And that he speaks english but also german and France

Southern Gentleman : Well that was brave

Titus Lim : Plot twist: no one was harmed in the scene, later he got Oscar for most realistic act.

mobskii : This is cool maybe your next video can be on the Mexican revolution!

Caolho, o Pirata : His motivation was a great love for his country, outraged by the absolute castration it has suffered by american hands. A hero.

Chris Rock : *Factions* *Simple History* *The Youtube History Channels*

GopnikStorm 21 : He Kermit sewerside

澤人志Hitoshi Sawa : Yukio was a great man atualy

Thot Killer : Roses are Red, Violets are Blue, There was an actor who staged a Coup and committed Seppuku.

thegreatcalvinio : They can just revive him with the Dragon Balls.

Resident Elect : How utterly brilliant is this channel? Imagine how many of us outside of Japan would never have heard of this man, and his thoroughly amazing story? Three cheers for Simple History!!! Hussar!!!

MrKILLER1078 : What a badass tbh

Aotian Zheng : Yukio Mishima is one of the most important Japanese writer after World War 2. It is a shame that the ignorant video maker did not bother to do some further investigation or read few pages of his work before putting him in the same category with those fallen soul in Hollywood.

Nicholas Spatar : Ima go throw up now, don’t know what your going to do.

Mike Echo : This guy wrote Spring Snow and Runaway Horses right. His literature was great.

Sara Wilcker : That guy is a real Japanese. Probably the last real Japanese since they all seem totally Westernized at this point. But I still think Japan is totally the most civilized and advanced country in the world.

私 Invictus 刀 : Wheres Logan Paul?

Erich Räder Bismarck : I wonder what if Alternate History Hub do a video about this topic had Yukio Mishima succeeded *What if post-war Japan ended its peace constitution?*

Cristian Arreola : Do the Night Witches of WII. They were an elite unit of female Russian pilots who flew wooden planes.

Kronos 08 : Commit Alive'nt

Honest M'aiq : **Japan before losing WWII** Honor is everything. **Japan after losing WWII** _KONNICHIWA , I WATCH HENTAIIII_

d fernandez : I respect that he's patriotic and wanted to keep traditions like Bushido alive. That's pretty cool 🙃👍🔥💯
