Default Identify the anime thread

Arrrgh... since the other one was years old and was merged into this one, it ended up being tons of pages of junk posts. Starting over now.

Post here with anime you don't remember and want to identify.

Well I guess I'll start off.

I'm not even sure this was an anime but the mental image sure seems like it.

Character (probably girl) floating backwards spinning a weapon (probably a sword or two-sided knife) using it to deflect a barrage of something (either solid or "energy-shots"). At least a couple graze her (like leg and arm in typical anime-style). I wanna say it's something like a Fate/Stay Night setting (kind of grainy dark atmosphere), but I can't recall at all.

That's pretty super-vague. Is it an older animation style? Would you think it was something aired in the 80's, 90's, or 00's? Fate/Stay Night was set in a modern period with fantasy themes, is it similar to this or closer to something like Claymore which is set in a medieval/fantasy setting? Any further thoughts would help tons..

Like I said, I'm not even sure it's an anime (might be from a game). However, the image in my mind would definitely put it in the '00s, not '80s-'90s. I can't really recall much else (thus why the description is still the same after a couple of months).

That sounds a lot like Busou Renkin. I recall a couple scenes where Tokiko used her blades on her legs to reflect projectiles. Don't know what other anime it could be, Busou Renkin really stood out in my mind when you described it.
