not that we were, but, I ran across this today. It's evidently a crossover/parody image with something else I'm not familiar with, but I dig it on its own merits.
Mind you, Mio possesses certain qualities that militate against her being an effective swordswoman, primary among them the sad but inescapable truth that she's... well, a coward. :)
On the other hand, a sword-toting high-school-rock-band bassist is not even slightly weird in the Dìqiú/Zipang system. I fully expect that, in/on both worlds (as well as on Ishiyama and certain parts of Tomodachi), the configuration of the sword pocket on one's gig bag is just another ordinary and expected layer of the transaction at, e.g., Guitar Center.
"May I help you?"
"Hi, yeah, I need a gig bag?"
"No problem at all. Is it for a guitar or bass? Short scale or regular? Katana or ninja-tō? Left- or right-hand draw? Do you need a shuriken pocket?"
