I saw the animated film between 1995/1997. I remember we rented it from Blockbuster. I remember the main character had something to do with Crows (the bird) and his sword could "cut (several inches, 4 maybe?) before the blade touched". I think he had some mystical powers too, but I really just can't remember. If you know what this may be please post. I've been trying to remember for years.
May have been Manga, but was definitely Japanese.
