There’s a saying in Osaka that every man has three hearts. One in his mouth for the world to know, another in his chest just for his friends, and a secret heart buried deep where no one can find it.

Well, regardless of how many hearts we have, each and every one of them loves FX’s epic miniseries Shōgun. The 10-episode historical series on Hulu and Disney+ is undoubtedly one of the best TV experiences of the year. Based on James Clavell’s classic 1975 novel of the same name, Shōgun follows wayward Englishman John Blackthorne (Cosmo Jarvis) as he washes ashore in Japan and becomes embroiled with a game of thrones waged among the fearsome Lord Toranaga (Hiroyuki Sanada) and the villainous council of regents.

If you’re like us then you’ve not only been watching Shōgun but you’ve been watching it closely. But how closely exactly? It’s high time to find out. Take our 10-question quiz to see if you know the difference between an anjin and a hatamato.
