Looking for 'Sword' anime.

I love sword fighting action, as a lot of people I'm sure, and I was just wondering if anyone can suggest one that I missed. Action, fantasy, and/or suspense are welcome too.

I've seen some of the popular ones such as:

-Rurouni Kenshin - Lots of sword action period.
-7 Samurai - Samurai fun x7!
-Samurai Champloo - Unique feel with amazing action scenes.
-One Piece - 3 swords = 3x owned.
-Ragnarok the Animation - Probably the least liked but, liked.

Anyway, thanks in advanced.

Berserk is definitely a sword-centered epic. Very dark story though, especially the end. Disturbing, even. On a more lighthearted note, you might try Tsukikagi Ran, and then there's Shura no Toki, where the main character doesn't use a sword, but everyone else does.

I don't know if this really fits in, but there's definitely a lot of sword stuff going on in the first 13 eps, and then 27 - 39 of Juuni Kokki aka 12 Kingdoms. It's a great show, it's in the fantasy genre and there's a lot to be learned about leadership and resolve and all of that. (Seriously!). And there's some great sword action and battles, and a lot of various fantastic creatures from the ficitonal world. There's great character development and interaction, a great plot, from 27-39 lotsa politics as well, and so on. Now go watch it!!

The new anime, Beet the vandel buster seems part sword fighting, with that legendary sword wich has a name, but I don't remember it. Only one episode out, so you might check it out weekly and see if it fits what you want.

I second the Twelve Kindoms nomination

But ALSO- Scrapped Princess is QUITE excellent and has some very good sword and magic battles- very well animated in the fight scenes, but it also has an excellent story, excellent characters, and excellent soundtrack. What more could you want?

What about Revolutionary Girl Utena? the show is really weird, rather comical at times, but it has lots of style (rose petals flying everywhere, overly dramatic angst scenes, cool poses , you know that kind of things... ) and more importantly, you get a sword duel with cool background music and metaphorical lyrics almost every episode! No excalibur monster knight swords though, it's more like... how do you say it?... fencing I think...

The thing about Ninja Scroll is that swords are not really the main weapon of choice. Every villain freak seems to have his own special ability/weapon. Of course we still have some ninja sword fighting so, yeah I think that's worth reccomending to someone who apreciates the Samurai/Ninja genre

well, at least in Ninja Scroll the main character uses a sword, and IMO the best looking fights are still those between swords

I guess you can try Mai-HiME... it may not have many swords, but it surely has one of the most kickass cool looking and powerful swords ever

i second the bleach recomendation
also, Tenjou Tenge is an excellent choice (very few swords, but there's a lot of plot around it)
