  Shogun Kunitoki
Shogun Kunitoki has been in existence since the late 1990s, but it wasn't until around 2003 that they discovered their own voice.
The C64s had to be replaced with something, and this lead to a period of fermentation during which Shogun Kunitoki moved away from computer-based music, and was eventually reborn as a real band with live instrumentation and a new, organic sound.
Shogun Kunitoki's debut album, Tasankokaiku, released by Fonal in early 2006, stands as a culmination of the group's long search for their own musical language.

 Shogun - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The term bakufu originally meant the dwelling and household of a shogun, but in time it came to be generally used for the system of government of a feudal military dictatorship, exercised by the shogun, and this is the meaning that has been adopted into English through the term "shogunate."
Three primary shogunates were each centered around a family which seized power and received the title of shogun during that regime.

Since the launch of the Kamakura shogunate, the shogun had seized the practical power of ruling Japan, taking power over from the Imperial Court in Kyoto until the Meiji restoration.

Shogun Assassin was an anglicized clip version of the first two Lone Wolf films, re-edited, dubbed into English, and featuring a new score.
Because of this, one would assume that the narrative of Shogun Assassin is a jumbled mess—but such is not the case.
The greatest irony of Shogun Assassin is that the film was created to bring the Ogami Itto saga to American audiences who didn’t have access to the original films.

 Japan Glossary - Shogun
Hereditary shoguns effectively controlled Japan - although always receiving formal authority from the emperor - during six and a half centuries.
Japan's Shogunates were the Kamakura Shogunate (1192-1333), established by Minamoto no Yoritomo, but ruled by the Hojo clan after his death, the Ashikaga Shogunate (1338-1597), based in Kyoto and ruled by the family of the same name, and the Tokugawa Shogunate (1600-1867), based in Edo and ruled by Tokugawa Ieyasu and his descendant.
The Tokugawa Shogunate was called bakufu ("tent government" 幕府), and the late Tokugawa era, just before the Meiji Restoration, was known as bakumatsu.

 IGN: Real Time Conflict: Shogun Empires Review
While Shogun Empires may be the first of its kind on the system, there is simply no reason to support this poorly designed and crudely executed attempt at the RTS genre.
The set-up for Shogun Empires is relatively strong, and takes from a solid set of design inspiration from such titles as Age of Empires, Defender of the Crown, and Lords of the Realm.
This portion of gameplay is what truly puts Shogun Empires in the bargain bin, as units move astonishingly slow, offer no strength in AI, and provide no actual entertainment in even the most heated of battles.

 Shogun
Shogun: Total War is Electronic Arts’ attempt to create a playable, fun, and historically realistic game based upon the period.
That can be a lot of fun, but the meat of Shogun is clearly the campaign game, which does an excellent job of combining a 2D turn-based strategic game--in which you plan, build, and conduct strategic moves--with a beautiful 3D realtime tactical game in which you fight out your battles.
Overall, resource management is pretty intuitive (though the interface is a bit awkward) and it’s important, too, as you’ll often be faced with tough decisions between training units for conquest and building for upgrades.
