I have always loved Sword Fighting Anime and have watched a lot of them throughout the year. These 15 Sword anime are my personal favorite. Check out the list and see if you agree.
Top 10 Sword Fighting Anime/Sword Anime
15. Gakusen Toshi Asterisk
Episodes: 12+12 (2 seasons)
Summary: Many would argue that this is not a sword anime, while they are right, this anime does focus on the sword aspect. The main character Ayato practices a family sword style and is the best swordsman in the anime. He also helps his friends with their technique. This anime contains a lot of action and while not anything special it is pretty good for stereotypical shounen and harem anime.
14. Juubee Nipuuchou(Ninja Scroll)
Summary: It is a movie is in medieval Japan like setting also here we get ninjas too!! The story follows Jubei, a wandering swordsman for hire who gets dragged into solving the mystery of a plague that wiped out and the entire village. This show probably has one of the most epic sword fights in anime so if you want sword fight anime/ sword anime this is a must watch for you.
13. Sword of The Stranger
Episodes: 1 (Movie)
Summary: A less known and underrated movie with a very good story and of course an unforgettable sword fight. Set in medieval Japan this movie depicts the current social and economic conditions beautifully and despite being a movie leaves a permanent impression on your mind.
12. Kill La Kill
Summary: The anime starts with Ryuuko, who is searching for the other half of ‘The scissor blade’, which is the only clue to find the murderer of her father. So it is obvious that this anime has a lot of sword fight as the sword is the focal point of the anime. As the anime progresses Ryuuko after being defeated by a student in “Goku uniform” from Hannouji Academy returns home and accidentally finds Senketsu, a rare type of god cloth(similar to Goku uniform) With the blade and the power-enhancing Senketsu Ryuuko stands against the Elite four of the Hannouji Academy. It is a very entertaining anime with a good plot and of course breath-taking battle sequences.
11. Arslan Senki
Episodes: 25(season 1)+8 (season 2)
Summary: It is a period drama following the life of the great Persian king of Arslan. Being an ancient period drama it contains battle of succession, a very interesting plot and memorable characters, very good battle sequences. There are some good sword fights too though it is not really a sword anime per se.
