The Walking Dead’s Michonne Gets Her Swordplay Onne

That might be my worst headline pun ever. Sorry about that (but not really.)

One thing about last season’s Walking Dead finale that really made me perk-up and pay attention was our first fleeting glimpse of Michonne, the katana-wielding ninja-type-person, and her two armless zombie… are we calling them pets? Let’s go with that. Specifically, the visual of the sword. That kind of stands out on a series where no one else knows what they’re doing.

In this video, we learn a little bit about the process which goes into swinging a full-sized blade around for days at a time. As for the one question I’ve been asking for months: “just where the hell do you find an authentic katana in post-apocalyptic Georgia?” Well, I suppose that’s destined to remain unanswered. Serves me right for nitpicking, but man, this show doesn’t make it easy to stop.

The Walking Dead returns to AMC on October 14th and no, Carl will still not be where he’s supposed to be.
