Weskalia's Bamboo Blade Tv Review

Rated: 9

Like the name suggests, the series can essentially be thought of as a sports anime, but it's not entirely about kendo, just about five high schoolgirls who have fun with the sport while facing various slice of life ordeals. Kendo does play a large role here with the plot never leaves the kendo field. Overall, Bamboo Blade is not only about hilariousness, but it's also about team membership, friendship and sportsmanship. It shows the significance of kendo, which could be forgotten, this may, in fact, be one of the series' greatest strengths: for some, kendo is a means to exercise violence in an acceptable manner, while for others the attraction is the fulfillment of mastering a precision discipline or appreciating true talent in action.
