Yu-Gi-Oh/bushido counters


I recently bought a six samurai starter deck and I have no idea what Bushido counters are. I have tried looking them up to find out but I haven't been able to find much on them so what are they.

Bushido counters are just anything you want to put on the card that signifies it has a counter.  You could use a die with a certain number of pips face-up to signify how many counters it has, or pennies, or beads, or anything you want, just to have a way to show that the card has those counters, in case another card tells you to do something with those counters.
