Top 10 Best Swords-Women in Anime

Hello, Everyone! Today I’m going to talk about my top anime Swords-Women. I have done a list of Anime badass swords-women. Anyway, I have seen many sorts of anime that involve the protagonist or side characters using swords. I myself believe that girls who handle swords are legit and crazily cool.
