Does any fight compare in terms of animation and emotion?
>Assuming this doesn't happen, the ants.
Hate to stop your Hype Express, but there are far, FAR better confrontations in anime then OPM.
>JoJo: Joseph Vs. Cars, Polnareff/Iggy Vs. Vanilla Ice
>Redline: Redline Finish Line
>Kaiji: Kaiji Vs. The Bog, Kaiji Vs. Tokugawa, Kaiji Vs. Chinchirorin Guy
>Madoka Magica: Homura Vs. Mami
>Gurren Lagann: GL Vs. Anti-spiral
>Legend of The Galactic Heroes: Battle of Vermillion
There are tons more, you just have to look.
Ranma OST is great but I'm disappointed this isn't an actual fight.
I remember three specifically; the first one at the school at the end of volume 1, the fight after Ryoga learns the rock-breaking technique, and the Shishi Hokodan who-is-more-depressed battle. And I watched this anime over a decade ago.
You must have watched at least 100 anime to post here
Even a minor fight from UBW has better animation. Saitama and Boros are literally just dots flying around 90% of the time
The fights would have a bit more excitement if it felt like One Punch Man's opponents were a threat to him.
The premise of OPM is great for comedy, but it limits the drama in some ways.
>Homura v. Mami is a terrible fight
It is. The stakes are poorly defined, the reason for the fight is contrived, the fight has no impact on the rest of the story, and the visual style and direction is both confusing and exhausting.

We all would turn into little girls.
This is what you do when you want to make a shot look interesting but don't know how to do it. These tracer lines are all over every shot in the fight too, and they often have little rhyme or reason and serve only to clutter the frame.
Also I guess you just aren't bothered by the other issues I have.
I think i feel the emotion while rooting for Boros. By the end of the fight i really wanted him to win, and while it was impossible, the fact that he still tried withall his might made it meaningful for me.
Also idgaf about dead civilians, its fiction.
You lay out a good argument. I wouldn't go so far as to say that the Homura/Mami fight is bad--SHAFT is still a talented studio, and they had a lot of money to work with--but it's pretty clearly just fanservice.
I agree that it isn't bad. I do think it recieves undue praise though. The Mami vs. Homura fight is popular only because it's a magical girl v. magical girl fight and people wanted that in the series proper.
I honestly wish the UBW fights were better animated. The action is way too fast for the low framerate, the blows simply have no weight to them and there's just too much flashy shit involved. And I honestly tried to like it.
>not understanding the emotive part about this fight
The point of the fight is exactly that there's absolutely nothing at stake, Boros is an intergalactic monstrosity that can wipe out life on Earth, and he's put against Saitama, who can literally kill him in one serious punch. Even so, Saitama can relate to him on his search for a worthy opponent, so he decides to act his part and let himself get pushed around by him, he's letting Boros have his dream fight, the one that Saitama will never have because he's the most powerful, because that's his quirk.
Boros knew this too, but he still pushed has hard as he could, but it was just not nearly enough. The scene posted in the OP is the saddest part, with one word, the music and change of style they convey everything they are feeling in that moment.
However, the last fight in SotS, Nanashi vs Luo-Lang, is much better than this one.
Literally saw this at least once in every longrunner shonen and action-packed series. Variations at all.
So no. Not even much of a milestone at all when it comes to "emotional".
Anon, just because the characters have motivations for the fight doesn't make it a contender for most emotional fight. That's like sayign that Garo spewing stuff about heroes and monsters makes his arc a touching tragedy or a thought-provoking commentary on justice or whatever. >>137488218 and >>137481332 are actual emotional confrontations.
Fuck off back to your BnHA threads, shitter.
Is that seriously something you would consider autistic? It's just noting something that was made on-your-face apparent in the anime. Being a gag manga doesn't mean it literally can't have any semblance of seriousness in a particular scene, or did you forget Mumen Rider?
It was more him getting raped than a challenging fight. It's like being better than everyone at fighting games and then going up against someone who pulls combo after combo against you while you can't damage them
You already have prior knowledge in most battle manga with vulnerable protagonists that the said protagonist will eventually triumph against an adversary despite all odds. Stop thinking that having Saitama get his shit kicked in with copious amounts of blood spewing from his body would change anything.
