Meet the “katana joshi” (カタナ女子) or "katana women." They are young Japanese girls who like collecting and posing with samurai swords.
The trend is inspired by an online game called Touken Ranbu.
Players assume the role of Saniwa Sage, a young girl who travels back in time to defeat evil forces. As Sage, you are able to give life to inanimate objects, including turning ancient swords into hot men.
The girls have appeared on numerous TV shows in Japan to show off their historical weaponry.
According to Kotaku, this isn't the first time the young women of Japan have shown appreciation for their country's military history.
"Rekijo" or women who like Japanese history, has been a popular trend for a few years.
It even inspired katana based fitness classes.
You keep doing you, ladies of Japan.
