Why are swordswomen 9/10 times the best girls in their series? Is it the physical investment swordsmanship requires, resulting in perfectly toned bodies? Is it the fact that they are some of the few women who can make the man they love feel safe in their presence rather than vice versa? Is it because the sword, an archaic weapon, symbolizes conservative and traditional values of honor and virtue? Is it because of their knightly radiance that proves a kind heart and a pure soul? Or is it just because they kick ass and look good while doing it?
i sure hope that was copypasta and you didn't actually type it out
The other 1/10 times are those who aren't wielding a katana.
That's pretty much all the bases, OP.
So, home run?
They're not shit per se, just no match for European swords. They're good at what they're intended to do: fight against lightly armored opponents. It's a light and brittle but very sharp cutting sword (as evidenced by the curve: it minimizes contact with the surface striked and thus exerts more pressure).
European swords, on the other hand, were made to be more versatile. An European swordsman (in the Middle Ages, at least) could expect to fight both armed and unarmed swordsmen. Hence a straight blade that allows for piercing and halfswording.
The katana was a pretty good weapon for the time and the region, but inferior to European weapons. Not shit though, otherwise the Japanese would never have used it.
>Pure and kind heart
>Not a psychopath who enjoys killing and torture
It's like you didn't read the manga.
using a sword is a up close and personal type of combat, they enjoy watching your last moments before your eyes or head rolls back just the same as they look into your eyes as they suck on your cock
I don't think she's the best girl, but she's top 3.
>32posts and 20 images
>not a single post of the BEST Oujo-san sword wielding waifu
It's because Japanese creators literally build their casts from spreadsheets of moe traits because they know losers like yourself are obsessed with specific archetypes and will gain an interest in any old shit as long as it contains a character who embodies their one dimensional moe focus trait. In other words, eat shit, Miyazaki was right, anime was a mistake.
Pic related, this entire game and anime is calculatedly built with "spreadsheet traits" in mind.
i love ikaruga and that has miyazaki can fuck off
its everything anon
"Archetype" is the fourth dimension, nigga.
It's the combination of the athletic physique that comes from training, the disciplined mind and competitive spirit required for martial proficiency, and usually a strict upbringing which left her with both a composed, hard shell and a soft, innocent interior that you want to harvest.
>you sound like a beta bitch
You sound salty. Not man enough to surrender to a skilled swordswoman that dreams of grinding your pelvis into dust?
Is this more to your liking? She occassionally wields a sword so it counts.
I love Esdeath, but can't get over the fact that she's a battle fanatic who tortures for fun. If only Esdeath were more kind and less of a psychopath.
so now she's watered down to a bland oneesan type? no offense to onessan types
I know sticking your dick in crazy is bad, but I somehow love the idea of turning some kuh-rayzee murderbitch into a somewhat mentally stable and loving person by giving her the
You might be right.
You'll have to take responsibility then.
I am inclined to agree with you.
Don't you want a waifu that will use her skills as a warrior to protect everyone around her?
