Re: Anime: Why you love/hate it so much?
Another reason I love anime is that I've enjoyed watching it in different languages. I first watched anime in Arabic when I was a child. When shows like Black Lagoon, Noir, and Le Chevalier d'Eon are European languages it brings a different dimension. I have no interest in watching American superhero cartoons in a different language. X-Men movies in French were amusing, but not how I'd want it be.
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.
