Sports anime Bamboo Blade is an AIC ASTA production about a high school girls kendo team and the deadbeat teacher who supervises them and occasionally gambles on their success. BJ and Duffo watch the first 13 episodes and discuss what goes into scoring an ippon, using kendo as an outlet for your secret violent side, and cheating in sports by giving one of your players a fake Power Rangers-sona.
