Got an idea for a First Person animation in the shower while thinking about an anime I just finished.
Strange how many ideas you get in there.

CnC please.

I'm not sure what I'm looking at.

Ok, so first of all, I, as did they, had no idea what that was until you said what it was.
secondly, in a first person view, you would still be able to see the hands and parts of the arm, that sword must have been swung at a very awkward and unrealistic angle for only the top of it to be shown on screen.
Third, a sword is a hard object made of METAL.
it wouldn't flop and shake around like that, unless you're animating fencing with a rapier, and in that case, you're doin it wrong.
Try to fix that. If you were going for a movement like effect, just use gradients, or movement lines at the end of the sword, while keeping the actual sword solid.
