I'm looking for an anime, where the characters fight with their swords. Not some weird, teleport, hit, teleport, hit, special attack, teleport, kill, but with actual swings, parries and dodges.

It's probably impossible to find an anime like this though, as its too much work to animate real sword fights, but, hey, doesn't hurt to ask?

Samurai champloo > everything... really, if you want beautiful art/art direction, great stories, great fights and great characters (nobody is better than Mugen.) there's no other anime as good as Champloo.

Samurai Champloo starts off great!

And then the episodes start to slide, a lot. They get good again at the last 3, but past the beggining few it's kinda boring.

Jubei-chan has some excellent sword fights. With "actual swings, parries, dodges." Like the game 'Bushido Blade.'

Samurai Deeper Kyo isn't like real swordfighting... they all have magical-ish powers.

Okay looks bro, your best bet would be

1.) Berserk (could be equally or even better than Samurai Champloo)
2.) Samurai Champloo (I mean really, I love this anime just as much, but I can watch berserk over and over and still say O M F G........ did he just chop that dude AND his horse in half ?)

Trust me, watch Berserk first. Champloo can come second.

Sword fight consists of 2 people fighting with swords and he specifically mentioned dodging and parrying if you have a problem with my decision pm me or an admin and we'll take it up back on topic.

Samurai Champloo IMO.....

[EDIT]

Take that kind of discussion to PM's, if you feel the need to continue.

...and consider this a friendly reminder to the fact that calling someone a "douche" is disrespectful >_o

Well not Anime but Manga

Blade of the Immortal and Vagabond, awesome sword fights, you should especially check out Vagabond which is a fictionalized biography of the legendary Sword Saint Miyamoto Musashi who is believed to have been one of the most skilled swordsmen in the history of the world.

That was a nasty thing to do.... about the Dragon Ball Z thing. In any case, I loved the sword fighting in Dragon Ball Z. Trunks also used his sword in the films, like 'Super Android 13!' & 'Bojack Unbound.' But there was also some sword fighting in movies 12 & 13, 'Fusion Reborn' & 'Tapion: DragonFist Assault.' I'm just laughing at the amount of the hypocrites around here these days... and it's funny, because most of them actually have some form of authority...

Just an FYI, sword-fighting can mean anything, and it doesn't necessarily have to do with two people fighting with swords, at least not in this thread. That's just absurd.

I can't think of any other animes with sword fighting that I liked, and I don't really care for the Ninja/Samurai look.
