Now here's something. Bamboo Blade is an...interesting series mainly because of its plot and the cute characters and slight humor, but anyways let me get down the main explenation of the series itself:

Bamboo Blade is a Japanese (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japan) manga (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manga) series written by Masahiro Totsuka (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Masahiro_Totsuka&action=edit&redlink=1), and illustrated by Aguri Igarashi (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Aguri_Igarashi&action=edit&redlink=1). The manga started serialization in the Japanese seinen (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seinen) manga magazine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manga_magazine) Young Gangan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Young_Gangan) on December 3 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/December_3), 2004 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2004). An anime (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anime) adaptation by AIC A.S.T.A (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anime_International_Company) began broadcasting on October 2 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/October_2), 2007 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2007) on TV Tokyo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TV_Tokyo).
The manga tells the story of a Toraji Ishida, a luckless high school teacher and Kendo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kendo) instructor whose life seems to finally take a turn for the better when his former upperclassman offers him a bet on the result of a competition between the female kendo students of both. Toraji decides to gather and train five students to win the bet when he meets Tamaki Kawazoe, a prodigy of the sport.

So there you have it, I kinda recommend you watch this, but I really doubt that this is for everyone.
