https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TsD5QJmz0gA Yona of the Dawn - Official Promo Video, seems to have a little odd fantasy in it that breaks away from reality, looking for somthing a little more down to earth and real, tho still the anime has cought my eye and im bound to wach this one

The first half of Otogi Zoshi has some good Heian era samurai action (though as a DVD bonus documentary explains, Heian era samurai were more likely to use bows than swords). There is a fantasy element to the story and the second half of the series strays away from the samurai theme.

Moribito takes place in a fantasy world but has the feel of a samurai setting. The main character is a female mercenary who weilds a spear, so again there is less emphasis on swords.

It is difficult to find serious samurai anime without some sort of fantastical twist as the genre is dominated by live action movies and series.
