Here is our list of the best swordsman in anime, including samurai, demons, shinobi, and anyone in general who wields a blade. Who is your favorite anime character that uses a sword? Is it the pirate hunter Roronoa Zoro? What about substitute soul reaper Ichigo Kurosaki, or the medieval swordsman Guts? No matter who you love, we want you to vote for your top anime character that fights using a sword. They don't have to exclusively be a sword fighter- we have characters like Sasuke on this list that don't always fight with a blade. If one of your favorites is missing, then definitely add them to the list! That way other people can vote for your pick, and that character might even make it to the top. We intentionally didn't include every character from Bleach since there are so many, but feel free to add as many of the soul reapers as you want.
