    Hello, yes another anime topic, but this time I'm searching for specific genres. I would like an action anime with swords and stuff. Lately I watched a lot a school and comedy animes and I need some action. Currently I'm waiting for bleach every week, naruto, death notes and one piece. I watched Basilisk, Juuousei, The Twelve Kingdoms, Black Cat, Elfen Lied, Fate/Stay Night, FMA, Rurouni Kenshin, Kiba, Scrapped Princess, Witch Hunter Robin, Hellsing, Trigun, Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, Trinity Blood, Chrno Crusade, Gun Grave for action animes and I probably forgot some. I started Ergo Proxy, Wolf's Rain and Ghost in the Shell SAC 1 but I'm not in the mood for sci-fi animes. So I'm running out of ideas curently. If you know any sword, ninja, pirate, good non scifi anime then say so here, Thanks!!


    EDIT: When I post like that I realise I may have taken too much of my free time to watch anime, I watched all that and alot more not listed in about 2 years...

    Bleach is already there, it's the first I mentined, because it's my favorite, but thanks for Samurai 7 I'll check that.

    Another vote for samurai 7 here, Ninja scroll film was good (series was somewhat lacking in my opinion).

    Damn I am having a complete mind block.

    I started Samurai 7 and I must say it looks good. Ninja Scroll I saw it, forgot to mention it.

    tsubasa chronicle has some sci-fi elements, but it has feudal japanese style warriors in it. FLCL should be seen by everyone, but it's a bit sci-fi, too. both of those have some sci-fi stuff, but i wouldn't classify them as such. Hajime no Ippo is an AWESOME boxing anime. yeah, i know, i don't like boxing either. just give it a shot.

    The Third - Aoi Hitomi no Shoujo

    In the distant future, because of the inter planet war that has continued for centuries, the civilization has ruined. Human being has lost every thing, and the population decreased to 1/5. Pseudo-human, “The Third”, is said to have appeared just after the war. They have red pupils called “Space Eyes”. Using them, they can control computer systems and so on, and rule the world by their superior power.

    In this world, there is a girl, Honoka. She is a jack-of-all-trades, and she accepts any order except murder. One day, she happens to find a young Ikus in the desert. When she accepts the order from him, her great adventure begins.

    You could try Venus vs Virus ... not really sword fights mostly with a gun but umm yeah ... its not bad and 12 episodes should be no problem ...

    or how about Utawarerumono ?



    and umm ok you did not want sci fi but ... umm try Baldr Force exe ... its pretty good and you can't make big mistakes with only the 4 episodes ...

    SE Lain... action??? What are you talkin' 'bout, man?

    Anyway... Noir. It's not swordfights, it's guns, but still. Plenty of action.

    Gun X sword was not bad although coming off those anime it may seem awful (think a slightly darker trigun with a mech or two).

    Like some have suggested, if you want a dark action anime without the fluff, go with Berserk.

    Honestly, DBZ and Bleach have a lot in common, so if he likes Bleach it's probably a good suggestion.
