If you can find it (its licensed): you might enjoy Kazemakase Tsukikage Ran (or known as Tsukikage Ran: Carried By The Wind).
Its a retelling of the old classic samurai tales from the Edo period... the catch is that the samurai is a female who's sort of accompanied by a chinese martial artist named Meow). The samurai lives for drinking sake and her sidekick is full of righteous indignation at most anything (its been called Xena, japanese style but I think this is better than Xena).
The main point is that it has some of the *best* animated swordfighting sequences I've seen in *any* animation and some of the dryest humor outside of a Clint Eastwood spaghetti western.

Its available still I think in a Perfect Collection video for less than $30 last time I saw it for sale.
