Are there anime that feature better fights than DBZ had 20 years ago?
I enjoyed Raildex fights for example, but they don't come close to DBZ though.
>>
Google it, faggot.

>>102125529
Yes

>>102125547
Can you name one, or tell me how to find them?
>>
>>102125574
What's bad about them?
>>
DBZ's fights were pretty horrible.

>Speed lines
>Beam spams
>Complete abandonment of all technique
>Most tactics consist primarily of pure, stupid brute force without the slightest finesse or grace
>One with the higher "power level" always wins. Higher power level always means that you're stronger, faster and can generate more energy than your opponent. Tactics and technique doesn't matter a wink if the enemy has a higher power level than you, since they'll definitely win.
>The only way you can win is by pulling out even more power levels out of your ass
>>
>>102125580

No.
>>
>>102125529
DBZ fights are the worst example you could have given.

Well, you know you can backstab like a nigger or fight a honorable fight.
>>
DBZ is a prime example of why free, limitless flight is terrible for a martial arts-oriented series.

Martial arts are pretty much entirely reliant on the fact that we're bound to the laws of gravity. The moment you take gravity out of the equation, every single martial arts in the world becomes pretty much worthless.
>>
Ok let me get this clear.
You actually don't have an idea, since you only watch slice of life anime right?
>>
>Are there anime that feature better fights than DBZ had 20 years ago?

Better is an opinion. And in my opinion, I would say yes. But that doesn't mean you would agree with me. Its also stupid to compare fights from a Shonen/Action anime to something like a Space Opera/Sci Fi or a Realistic/Time Period anime.

>I enjoyed Raildex fights for example, but they don't come close to DBZ though.

A perfect example of your opinion.

SOUL EATER had some nicely animated fights, and was generally enjoyable until the half-point.

Jojo's bizarre Adventure had lulz, guts and brains in almost all fights.

And naturally there's the Kill La Kill that goes totally crazy all the time.

Jack Ripper fight was animated the best, and arguably the only good fight in the show.
>>
>>102125620
This. In retrospect the battles in DBZ were shitty and predictable as fuck.

On the other side, the ones in the original DB still hold up nicely.
>>
despite the show's (and manga's) shortcomings, Bleach has some pretty good fights. There are some pretty shitty ones, though.
>>
Oie. DBZ is a terrible fucking show, by any standard. But, you all fail to remember how amazing it was as a 9 year old with no access to the internet, with only toonami to satisfy your anime needs. DBZ may be awful in terms of actual quality, but it went so ridiculously overboard on the fighting that it basically showed all other anime that it's okay to be a little bit retarded OP once in a while.

DBZ had shit fights. People can be impressed by the scale sure but objectively speaking the fights are completely shit. The pacing was horrible, way too much standing there and grunting and the budget was terrible even for its time.

That fucking show, the fight scenes were so well done at times which was way more than the ridiculous plot deserved. I loved it though, fuck Japan's tastes.
