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 ><)?
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.
