Best sword-fighting show ever: Azumi  

Originally published at Tumble Dailies. Please leave any comments there.

I’ve always been a fan of action movies. Not the typical girl that would scream and get all freaked out. Rather I find it very exhilirating when my adrenal glands start secreting the fight/flight chemical in my system when I get all excited watching action movies. And I have watched a fair number, especially since Hubba is also into movies like me.

Since young, I’ve always loved watching the good old Hong Kong drama serials with loads of sword fighting, where you see the kungfu masters display extraordinary skill in sword fighting, while seemingly able to fly through the air as though gravity never existed. No doubt many of us kids growing up watching those drama serials wished one time or another we had such skills. Then, the tide changed and action movies involving gun shots and bare fist fighting were the in thing. But yet, no matter how much faster the action sequences become because of the modern machinery, I still very much prefer watching shows that just relied on the prowess and skill of men, with no guns involved.

Enter Azumi, the show with one of the best sword-fighting sequences I’ve seen so far:
