Welcome, one and all, to another 30 Day Anime Challenge post. We’re now at day 26, which means that we’re looking at … the best anime fight.
So, anime has plenty of fights to draw on here. It would be easy to jump into a title like Bleach and fine a flashy, epic battle. Or I could look at the much-lauded Digimon Adventure Tri fight scenes. Instead, I want to pick something a little different: the first fight between Kougami Shinya and Makashima Shougo in Psycho Pass.
What I love about that whole sequence is that the circumstances around Makashima means that gunplay using the standard issue enforcement weapons is not an option. As a result, the pair have to fight it out hand-to-hand. Despite the futuristic setting, this boils down to a straight-up fight that uses real techniques. The animation is great, and the whole thing comes across as very real. That wins me over
But what about all of you? What was your favourite anime fight?
