Japan's history is pretty nuanced and complicated. Regime changes and wealth of culture alone make it pretty difficult to condense into one tiny educational pill, but Bill Wurtz has put together great video that gives us a hilarious and surprisingly informative recap of Japanese history in less than ten minutes.

From the birth of Japan, to the warring states period (Sengoku Jidai), Meiji Restoration, World War II, and even Dragon Ball Z, this video covers ground fast. If you have some spare time, this is a funny and educational way to burn 9 minutes.

So that's what happened. Class dismissed!
