This question is hard because there are three specific fight scenes that I really like and am having a hard time deciding who deserves the title as “best.” So, I’m going to list the three and link the clips from Youtube for you all to decide.
The first is fight scene between Jin and Mugen in Samauri Champloo. This is a huge moment for them because it’s the moment they first meet and try to show each other up. However, in all honest, we all know that Jin would win fair and square. He’s far to practical and well-practiced where as Mugen is a bit hasty in his actions.
The second is the fight scene in Gurren Lagann where Kamina and Simon combine their robots Gurren and Lagann. This scene is critical in the show because it shows how Simon is learning to fight his fears and embrace Kamina’s leadership (no matter how crazy his ideas are). Also, it shows how daring Kamina is when he decides they should “do that thing….” aka combine their robots into one.
Finally, the scene in Cowboy Bebop where Spike is trying to fight and flirt at the same time. I was pretty impressed with this scene because a lot of anime really zone in on the slashing and swords of the action but these scene makes the characters almost look as if they are dancing. Plus, he’s super smooth, haha!
Anyways, vote in the comments. Which is your favorite fight scene? Or, if you have a better one, share!
P.S. This is Day 28 of A Geeky Gal’s 30 Day Anime Challenge, which you can find more about here.
