As a few said here, it's like any other form of entertainment, some is good, some is bad
Yeah, the misogyny is there. But when a show is good, it's great.
That being said, Gundam Unicorn has one of my favourite heroines of 2013: Mineva Lao Zabi. I would have chosen Asuka in the Evangelion 3.0 but her part wasn't big enough IMHO.
The swordsmanship's first achievement is the unity of man and sword. Once this unity is attained even a blade of grass can be a weapon.
The second achievement is when the sword exists in one's heart. When absent from one's hand one can strike an enemy at paces
even with bare hands.
Swordsmanship's ultimate achievement is the absence of the sword in both hand and heart. The swordsman is at peace with the rest of the world. He vows not to kill.
