Thanks Graham. Bleach
on wikipedia. I was impressed by the synchronicity of that other thread.
Thanks for the ideas Mary and Cliff. I wanted to introduce a few of the manga and animé that had modern martial arts - gendai budo - as their central themes. Monster is a mystery but it has scenes in an aikido dojo. But that was only a starting point and I hope there will be some more suggestions for cool ones.
is a really popular series about Miyamoto Musashi and Usagi Yojimbo
is about Miyamoto Usagi. Usagi means rabbit...
