Katanagatari is an amazing narrative, driven by strange, otherworldly characters who all bounce off the page with beauty and poise. Did I mention this anime was originally a series of light novels? Yeah, that happens. The main character, Shichika, goes through a lot to understand what it means to be human, and to be a sword, as he accompanies his master, the strategian (her words not mine) Tougami.
go to site Why I recommend it for writers: As the series was originally a very well-sold novel series, it has great tips for characterisation. Also, the ending. But I can’t spoil it for you.
