I am looking for the title of a swordsman anime in which a man has many swords in his back, and he keeps the sword of the person he defeats.

  • In his back or on his back? He defeats only one person or many? – Rand al'Thor Nov 8 at 19:59

    @Jacob per policy We don't close story-id as dupes until both are accepted, which isn't the case on either one here. Voted to leave open. – Jenayah Nov 8 at 21:11
  • @Jenayah Thanks, noted. The policy answer says they should only be closed as dupes when that's the case. Should I hold off on even flagging story-IDs as dupes until there's an accepted answer? (Btw, in the other question, while the questioner did not click the Accept check, they did say "Thank you @ Jacob C, thats the one", and the policy answer you linked says "If the OP posts a 'yes this is it' comment, that's as good as an acceptance.") – Jacob C. supports GoFundMonica Nov 8 at 21:33
  • @Jacob missed the comment on the other Q, my bad. Yes, you should hold off flags (which generate a review item), but what you can do instead is post the supposed duplicate as a comment ("see also [link] for more details" for instance). Now that all of this is said however, this went into close queue again for being off-topic, which I didn't catch on first read. Montu, if this anime is science-fiction or fantasy, please edit your question to includes said elements (magic? Superpowers?). Otherwise I'm afraid this request isn't covered by this site's scope, and should therefore be closed. – Jenayah Nov 8 at 21:38

This could be the Duelist from The Duelist and the Drifter, an episode of the 2011 Thundercats. From fandom:

Nothing much is known about the Duelist other than he loves to duel to win famous and powerful swords. He keeps his collection within a shield that he wears on his back.


The Duelist is a sly and cruel individual who constantly seeks worthy opponents in the way of the sword. When he defeats them he takes their swords as trophies.
