The top one is a katana, it just has a weird handle curve which makes the blade seem more curved than it is. Try imagining a straight handle, and it should look more like you think it should look like. The smaller one is most likely a wakizashi, with the same principle applying to the handle.

Well, there katanas, and wakazashi. The only reason they are weird is because they are meant to be style - i guess. Back then, samurai's did have styles to you know?

Not everyone wanted the generic single curved type. I still think its weird though, maybe its for better grip, and comfort.

(Anyone ever tried to hold a reallife gunblade?) It feels better than a real sword.

Just as Zyke said, the top one is a Katana, the main fighting sword, while the second one is a Wakizashi, which was used for the preforming of ritual suicide, rathere than succombe to the enemy, Beebe out.
