I thought you'd appreciate this, despite it being a bit cheesy.  Maki Goto takes on samurai warriors.

Oh yeah!  GoMaki is never boring.  Everyone still misses her!  I got a good laugh @ 0:34 when she failed to properly draw her blade.  :lol:  Cheesy, yes, but fun too!

^ I don't see what was 'improper' about it... to me it was added drama of having to defect blows with the sheath before even getting a chance to get the blade out, which lended opportunity for that emphatic half-unsheathed block over the shoulder.

Yeah you are right.  I watched this somewhere around 3 AM after a very long day.  Watching it again I see it from a different perspective. 

 

I loved sword fighting.  I wish I had never stopped.

Here is another photo of an idol with a samurai sword.  I am not sure who this is.

That first pic w/ the samurai sword / school costume looks like either a Blood+ adaptation / cosplay or that movie I've seen clips from on Facebook where a girl slides down a hallway taking out tons of machine gun wielding dudes.

Have you done much YouTube searching?  Just trying to find the clip I referenced I saw so many other asian female sword fighting stuff that hasn't been shared here.

(PS - read your signature - sorry to hear that.  I support you and your remarks!)

A friend posted the bloody schoolgirl with sword on FB.  I liked it and posted it here.  She would have fit right in with Lucy Liu's "GoGo Yubari" bodyguard and the "Crazy 88" in Kill Bill vol.1, eh?

No, I have not done much searching until last night.  I am surprised the links I provided to the original story, and Smithsonian's Samurai Warrior Queens have already been taken down.  Without the original story this tread is pretty weak.  I would like to find it and re-post it again, along with other historical documents to shine the light on female warriors.

Thank you for your support!

 

Here is a photo of Nakano Takeko, heroine of the Battle of Aizu:
