Today in awesome: Fight scenes (anime – duels)

September 30, 2011 at 9:55 am (Awesome) (, , , , )

I’m not saying these are the beeest anime duels ever. I’m just saying, sometimes, at the end of a long week, all you want to see are a couple of characters artfully tearing each other to ribbons in the best possible quality animation. Because it makes for a better weekend that way.

Wrath vs Greed
Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood

I love any fight scene with Wrath in it n__n.

Ginji (as the Lightning Emperor) vs Akabane
Get Backers

It’s worth finding the Japanese dub just to hear the sex in Akabane’s voice when he says ‘Ginji-kun’ n__n.

Kenshin vs Saito
Rurouni Kenshin

Alucard vs Anderson
Hellsing OVA

Note the strange noise Anderson makes riiight as he makes his first strike n__n.

Mugen vs Jin
Samurai Champloo

Ryu vs Ken
Street Fighter the movie

There are fancier fight scenes in the Street Figher movie, but this one stands out for its poignancy (and that little feint Ken makes before striking). You can skip the entire first minute of the video.

Afro’s father vs Justice
Afro Samurai

Nanashi vs Luo-Lang
Sword of the Stranger
