Here is a screenshot taken from the classic Japanese drama Kodzure Ohkami (Lone Wolf and Cub). Ohgami Itto, an assassin is receiving tea made by a daimyo client while discussing details of the assignment.

Despite the unbelievable martial abilities of the protagonist, the calm, selfless resolve with which he walks along the “path along the edge of hell” (meifudou), makes the story enthralling and deeply moving.
