Mighty samurais that as we know from multiple anime series are the best warriors around the world once again showed their combat skills.

On January 8, a cutting edge submarine of the Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force was cowardly attacked by a commercial vessel in the Pacific Ocean off Shikoku, but successfully retreated after a short encounter.

The Japanese side confirmed that 3 crew members received light injures, but the damage suffered by the warship itself was not significant.

Immediately, the trace of the ‘Chinese enemy’ was found in the story.

Top government spokesman Katsunobu Kato said that the 84-meter-long Soryu scraped the hull of the vessel as it was surfacing.

A commercial ship believed to be the one involved in the incident may have been the Ocean Artemis, a Hong Kong-flagged bulk carrier.

The submarine arrived at Kochi port late on February 8 as the Japanese side provides no further details on the encounter.
