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.
Can you name one, or tell me how to find them?
What's bad about them?
DBZ's fights were pretty horrible.
>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
DBZ fights are the worst example you could have given.
Wake Up Girls!
>Allowing the enemy to level up to their next form.
>Sideline battle narration (because we clearly can't see what's going on).
>Random hand swipes and kicks (I trained for years to do this!).
But DBZ fights were fun.
Look at that form! She's going to be a tough opponent.
>>Allowing the enemy to level up to their next form.
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.
Yes. We're all just pedos here who only want to talk about little girls, now get the fuck out.
She's the final boss.
>Planet on the verge of annihilation.
>"Yes, I'll take the honorable path and allow you to make this battle harder for me. I don't think the rest of my planet will mind that I gambling with their lives."
They handwave this by saying "They're Saiyans. It's what they do. They're all stupid, worthless idiots."
Unlimited Blade Works
Looks like I'll have to use "that".
>Are there anime that feature better fights than DBZ had 20 years ago?
What was good about DBZ fights again?
>Horrible, low budget animation
>No strategy used, just flailing fists and beams
>Powering up and grunting ad nauseum
>Slow as fuck pacing
Find better taste.
Now that's what I call satisfying, thank you anon.
W-what is "that"?
Go watch bleach :^)
There are actually people that believe this, and it worries me.
How come people are this dumb?
I mean, he seriously doesn't know how to look for something which is extremely pathetic.
Don't fucking make the faggot go to KlK threads you retard
It can only be one thing:
Handholding and sex in the missionary position with the intent to reproduce.
It's going to take all the energy I have.
Those threads are already shit tier and are pretty much containment threads already so I fail to see the problem.
Oh you are one of those...
You faggots brought that up yourself.
You guys spammed other boards and even /v/ with KlK threads.
>implying it wasn't the other way around with shitposters and /v/ riding in
I still lol when I imagine that 5'3" frame whipping around that big ass sycth. Lovely animation. Also, FMA is a given for great fight animation.
I know about the wiki, I know where to get my shit.
But what I found was terrible, sorry for discussing anime on an anime board.
Yeah, because they're not /v/ generals already
Asking to be spoonfed is not discussion.
Jack Ripper fight was animated the best, and arguably the only good fight in the show.
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.
I'll post a Gif or two, because you really need to step your game up sempai. But I'm not going to spoonfeed you and give away titles, you'll have to do the google-work yourself.
Works better if you change filenames into something nonsensical.
Hamtaro x Hamtaro
got ya dingus
hentai x hentai
Bleach fights consist of each character attacking then mysteriously appearing right behind each other and explaining how their power works whilst also revealing its weakness
You mean like every major shonen ever?
Forgot to change the filename. But it's not like the OP is smart enough to look at them (until you pointed it out!)
jackson jackman's bizarre adventure and hamtaroxhamtaro are the only shounen worth watching/reading
Come on dude. Anyone who's spent even a little time on youtube knows this one.
>despite the show's shortcomings
>There are some pretty shitty ones, though
read before you post.
If I had a genie you'd be dead right now, be told.
Mahou Politics Alibaba Magika is pretty good too if you only go by the manga
First episode has down-to-earth grappling and karate, second has some of that but also Ki Energy shit.
>And naturally there's the Kill La Kill
Stop poisoning the board, go back to your containment threads.
No you shut up.
batman? thats not an anime
Are you going to be the one to tell Batman that?
I'm just here to let you know I'm laughing at your shit taste
eat shit and die
Naruto has some pretty good fight scenes!
I dropped this shit on the recap episodes
such gentlemanly sarcasm.
man up and finish that shit. it was amazing.
He's right about the cruhziness though. Like it or not. Too bad the animation is subpar.
Everything under "Motion (Action)"
Shit plot, fun battles.
Would very much recommend Paprika to anyone who hasn't seen it, it truly is amazing.
Some of the fights were great but I agree on the plot part. If they'd focused it a bit more it could have been good but instead we got a plot that only properly makes sense if you can read moon to read the 5 million side stories. Fucking K.
RIP Satoshi Kon, so much value lost.
Because kicking females with guns in the face.
The plot of this show is forgettable, but this little upset fag keeping the action cranked past 11, made the show enjoyable.
what is this from?
Read the post, dummy.
Google image search knows.
What do you mean lost? Haven't you seen Black Swan and Inception?
Hollywood will continue on his legacy, by bringing his shows to live action, and not giving credit to him!
OP asked for good fights and FLCL has them, regardless of what you think about the plot.
eh... I guess you're right. I concede the point to you.
No really, fuck you Japan! This should have got another season!
More upset fucks to give.
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.
