Sword of the Stranger (Japanese: ストレンヂア 無皇刃譚, Hepburn: Sutorenjia Mukōhadan) is a 2007 Japanese animated jidaigeki-chanbara adventure film produced by Bones and released by Shochiku. It depicts Kotaro, a young orphan hunted by Ming swordsmen, who receives unexpected protection from Nanashi, a troubled ronin.
The story begins during the Sengoku period[a] with a young boy named Kotaro who escapes unknown pursuers with his dog Tobimaru, and is directed by the monk Shouan to seek help from Master Zekkai at the Mangaku Temple in the Akaike Province. Meanwhile, a group of Ming Chinese warriors under the command of the elderly master Bai-Luan is being escorted by soldiers of Lord Akaike who has agreed to allow the Ming to build a large altar on his land in exchange for gold. The group is ambushed by bandits, but they are slaughtered by the Ming's expert Western swordsman, Luo-Lang.
While sheltering in an abandoned temple, Kotaro encounters Nanashi, a wandering swordsman, but they are found by a search party of two Ming warriors with Akaike soldiers. A Ming warrior attacks the duo, and Nanashi kills him, but Tobimaru is wounded by a poisonous dagger. Kotaro hires Nanashi as a bodyguard and he takes Tobimaru to a doctor where the dog is treated. Meanwhile, Akaike soldiers capture the second Ming, Tu-Si, who is tortured to divulge the purpose of the altar. Tu-Si reveals that they are on a mission from the Ming Emperor to create an elixir of immortality known as the Xian Medicine. The essential ingredient is the blood of a prophesied child, the boy Kotaro, who can only be sacrificed at a certain time of the year. Lord Akaike then changes his plans to capture Kotaro and hold him for a high ransom.
Nanashi finally arrives at the fortress, but is momentarily knocked unconscious. He recalls the incident years earlier when he was ordered to execute two children and he vowed to never unsheathe his sword. When Nanashi recovers and sees Kotaro about to be sacrificed, he draws his sword and fights his way to the altar, saving Kotaro. Bai-Luan attempts to shoot Nanashi, but Luo-Lang kills his master so that he can challenge Nanashi to a final duel. The two swordsmen engage in a tremendous sword fight, destroying the structure in the process. Despite suffering many injuries, Nanashi finally defeats Luo-Lang who slowly dies, somewhat shocked by his defeat. The next morning, Kotaro rides off on horseback carrying Tobimaru and the badly wounded and barely conscious Nanashi, talking about starting a new life together.

The proximate reasons for why gossip connects people are twofold, according to Gluckman (1963, 1968). First of all, he says, gossip marks social groups. Gossip is a tool to make clear who is part and who is not part of a group. Outsiders simply cannot understand the gossip of a group sharing a social history and culture (Liang 1993; Riegel 1996). Not surprisingly, gossip is also often associated with themes of us vs. them (Gelles 1989). The sharing of negative attitudes towards mutually known third parties especially seems to contribute to this group delineation and may even elicit feelings of closeness among strangers (Bosson et al. 2006; Weaver and Bosson 2011). Second, Gluckman (1963, 1968) says that gossip is used to communicate about group norms and scandalize those who violate these norms. In this perspective, gossip unites because it enforces conformity of group members. Researchers have extensively reported on the use of gossip as a tool to identify and punish norm violators, who take advantage of others without reciprocating in any sense (e.g., Arno 1980; Cox 1970; Eder and Enke 1991; Gelles 1989; Gluckman 1963; Hannerz 1967; Kuttler et al. 2002; Levin and Kimmel 1977; Merry 1984; Morreall 1994; Percival 2000; Post 1994; Rosnow 1977; Saunders 1999; Schoeman 1994; Smith et al. 1999; Thomas 1994; Wilson et al. 2000; Young 2001). It has been shown that it is the negative arousal elicited by freeloading behavior that drives gossipers to share the information and punish their target (Baxter, Dun and Sahlstein 2012; Feinberg et al. 2012a). The consequences of this type of gossip can be considerable. For instance, acquiring reputation information via gossip leads to similar changes in behavior towards the target, compared to when people acquired the information by personal direct observation (Sommerfeld et al. 2007). More specifically, when acquiring via gossip that one is not to be trusted to cooperate with, this person is less likely to be selected as a cooperation partner in future interactions with others (Feinberg et al. 2014).
We advise future researchers to be mindful of the kind of gossip they use in their research. The gossip used in this experiment actually differed from the gossip used in the studies by Bosson and colleagues. To explain this, we refer to the work of De Backer et al. (2007), who distinguish between gossip information that is focused on the behavior (called strategy learning gossip) vs. gossip information that is focused on the person (called reputation gossip). Strategy learning gossip can be about anyone, whereas reputation gossip is about people we know, directly or indirectly. Strategy learning gossip is about what happened, from which the gossipers vicariously learn about successful behavior, appropriate behavior, and cultural norms. Reputation gossip is focused on the target, who is gossiped about, and alters the reputation of that person. In the studies of Bosson and colleagues, reputation gossip was used; it was all about shared or non-shared attitudes towards the target. In this study, the gossip story was a mix of both reputation gossip (who is not to be trusted: the experimenter) and strategy learning gossip (what happened: some people hit and run, and the gossiper finds this morally wrong). In this study, we are only certain about a shared attitude with regards to strategy learning gossip. The confederate merely expressed her dislike of a specific action. At the very end of the study, participants were also asked to rate the behavior of the target, and this revealed a matching negative score. The confederate and participants thus shared their attitudes towards the behavior gossiped about (strategy learning gossip). However, we do not know if any effect of reputation gossip was at play, because it could very well be the case that even though they rate this behavior as clearly negative, their overall impression of the target may not have been that negative. Indeed, perhaps a clearly shared dislike of attitudes (reputation information) is needed to establish closeness via gossip. That is, it may be that reputation gossip can start social cohesion among strangers, whereas strategy learning gossip is less suitable for social bonding purposes. We advise future researchers to investigate the influence of pure reputational gossip, such as the attitudinal information used in the studies by Bosson and colleagues, and pure strategy learning gossip, where the identity of the target remains completely unknown (e.g., mass media gossip dealing with what miraculously happened to your unknown people, see Davis and McLeod 2003).
In conclusion, using levels of cooperation as a tool to measure social bonding, we used a social dilemma game to test whether gossip leads to more cooperative behavior among unknown gossipers. It was already established that strangers can connect when they express a shared dislike towards a mutually known third party (Bosson et al. 2006; Weaver and Bosson 2011). This study adds to that evidence by showing that merely sharing negative gossip information about another stranger may even positively influence first interactions between strangers. However, the results presented here further suggest that more is needed to bolster social cohesion and especially cooperation. In sum, gossip may start a positive first impression, but it remains unclear if it can truly create social cohesion, especially when gossip can decrease levels of cooperation. 2b1af7f3a8
