I’m sure that, even though I haven’t seen any, there are probably thousands of anime about Kendo, but from my perspective, it was nice and novel to see it featured here instead of, say, Karate or Judo.

Having practiced the Filipino stick-fighting discipline, Eskrima, I can vouch for how painful a good THWACK with a stick can be.
