    In a case like a zombie apocalypse, you want speed at a distance. The Yumi is a fantastic bow but crossbows are more convenient. Not only that but the wakizashi and ararebo aren't really designed to be primary weapons like the sword and the mace.

    A wakizashi is top notch for beheading, lighter and better for close quarters. Also, i don't see how crossbows are more convenient, they take more time to reload and are more awkward to hold.

    They are more convenient because it doesn't take as much skill to use them and they are much more comfortable to hold.

    It's better for close quarters against a human. Against a horde of zombies, you want the longer double edged blade even if it is heavier. As for crossbows, not all of them are awkward to hold, especially more modern ones. Not only that, but they're more maneuverable than the massive yumi, much easier to aim with, easier to be accurate with, and could be used as a melee weapon if needed.

    I had the thought of a random crossbow/bow in mind, not particulary those 2. You might be right about those, i guess time will show ey.

    The Japanese swords are NOT light at all, even the wakizashi is tremendously heavy for its length as a result of the poor quality steel in old Japan, the swords needed to be very thick. In Europe on the other hand arming swords could have been just 1.5 pounds because of superior steel, The katana and tachi type blades may average 2.5 to 3.5 pounds, heavy for their size in sword talk. Even a grosse messer could weigh 4 pounds, a fairly large two handed sword. Even considering a few pounds is important on long foot journeys. Further, they are high maintenance blades (more so than the European option).

    That reminds me of something else that I forgot to point out. Japanese weapons are only as dangerous as they are known to be if you know how to use them. European weapons were made so anyone would be able to learn to use them quickly and not have to worry about the damage to them. The only way to make them move so quickly is to have mastered everything about them. But yes, Japanese swords are not as light as they appear. The reason I said "if it's heavier" is because, unlike arming swords, it's much more common to encounter a replica of a Japanese sword because so few have survived that are accessible to the public. Most are kept locked away by collectors or hidden in Japanese museums. The replicas are much lighter than their authentic counterparts while a real and replica arming sword are roughly the same.

    The wakizashi may weigh 3 pounds (1.3 kilograms), however the arming sword was only 1.5 pounds (.6803 kilograms). It nearly possesses the same performance with a half-sharp edge and requires less strength and maintenance to wield. The arming sword was made for closer quarters than the long swords of the day. A major drawback to European blades is that they generally require much more skill to use with non-ill results for the user.

    She probably means the reload sequence which is quite simple.

    Crossbows are slow to reload and heavy
