An enjoyable lighthearted comedy. Bamboo Blade has a delightful ensemble cast highlighted by an adorable/unstoppable bamboo sword wielding girl. I think it's funny that Kojirou, the kendo instructor, is somewhat pathetic. I like it when an anime teaches me something while entertaining. I now have an admiration for the art of kendo. The actual animation is only average though, but it's still fun to watch. I think anyone involved in high school sports would identify with the heart of this series. If you like anime comedy this should be on your list.
