Plot Summary: In an Edo-era Japan lush with a variety of sword-fighting styles, Shichika Yasuri practices the most unique one: Kyotouryuu, a technique in which the user’s own body is wielded as a blade. The enigmatic seventh head of the Kyotouryuu school, Shichika lives quietly in exile with his sister Nanami until one day—the wildly ambitious strategist Togame barges into their lives.

Togame brazenly requests that Shichika help in her mission to collect twelve unique swords, known as the “Deviant Blades,” for the shogunate. Shichika accepts, interested in the girl herself rather than petty politics, and thus sets out on a journey. Standing in their way are the fierce wielders of these legendary weapons as well as other power-hungry entities who seek to thwart Togame’s objective. In order to prevail against their enemies, the duo must become an unbreakable team as they forge ahead on a path of uncertainty and peril.

What I think: The art on this one could be better. The drawings are very simple for such a short Anime. It has only 12 episodes but each episode is 50 minutes long.

The story however is a lot better. It´s not very complex but you might need to read up un some Japanese history, if you aren´t familiar with it already. But if you are not interested in studying History just to watch Anime, dont worry to much about it. You will probably get the hang of it after the first episode.

Besides the story, there is also the comedy, the main character can be very clueless leading to funny situations. And there are also some pretty awesome fight scenes.

You should check this out if you like martial arts Anime.
