Anime suggestions ?

Postby Rondelle » Sat Feb 25, 2012 5:25 pm

Well - been looking just a little bit for a good series to watch .
To clarify , I'm absolutely in love with swordplay animes [ Mostly what I'm looking for . ] . I just watched Sword of the Stranger and I freaking - I can't explain how much I loved it .
I'm looking for either movie or series , though movies are a little bit more preferred . . either way , all suggestions are welcome !

Sengoku Basara is a great series with lots of sword fighting and Edo-period stuff. Of course, its not as realistically-animated as Sword of the Stranger, but I found it thoroughly enjoyable.
2 seasons (12 - 13 eps each) and 1 movie for that one.

I don't know if you watched it, but Samurai Champloo would be an obvious choice. Another few ones are Basilisk (not fully focused on sword wielding characters, but a lot of good fights nonetheless), Peacemaker Kurogane, and maybe Samurai 7 (never really watched it ><)?

A million times THIS. And I wouldn't really suggest Samurai 7 for the swordplay-lovers. That was more of a focus on storyline than action.

TSUBASA RESERVOIR CHRONICLES or the TOKYO REVELATIONS OVAs, or TSUBASA SHUNRAIKI. SHAORAN FTW!

not enough money, not enough popularity, not enough money.

Just like Air Gear

Everyone in bleach pretty much has swords but its not close to sword of the stranger. As pacotacoshell said, samurai champloo is an obvious choice

Katanagatari has swordplay but it's swordplay is a bit different, if you see the first couple episodes you'll get what i mean. It goes down as one my favorite animes though, even if it is a bit sad at the end.
