I have to back up your opinion, it really would be a great fight with many casualties on both sides, but with the equipment the samurai are given they would win, I think.

I tried, but failed. It would be easier if he/they? would start to use "real" words.

Yes but it was a phalanx none the less, also the roman style of fighting would have owned the spartans all the same, and the romans have defeated the greeks, now I cant say what city-state, I think all of them which would include sparta, and it was spartans since after alexander died most of his empire came crashing down, and the greeks were free(also I remember a famous battle were a small number of spartans in a strategic defensive position fought off a much larger roman force but were later crushed).

Also bullshit, your an idiot, bronze isnt aqs weak as you think and the ancients had a way of hardening bronze that we dont know even today.
Arrows rarely ever penetrated platemail, even at close range, thats one of the reasons guns became so popular, that and they were scary, other than than early guns sucked and bows were much better(at the time).
Also like someone else said, the spartans were soldiers and the samurias were warriors, and in a battle with numbers soldiers>warriors.

Alexander had nothing to do with Sparta. He was Macedonian and his army was Macedonian.
