dramatic entrances, poses, full page illustrations in manga, pastel stills in anime (but only for the end of a battle or the end of an episode)...

..and finally: badass and/or meaningful attack names especially if they lead to or are the reason behind a curbstomp battle; where one side just absolutely trashes the other.

Slow-motion recaps of what had just happened OR Slow-motion depiction of what is happening. Usually depicting one of the characters being "fast" although it's slow-mo.

Good combination of track. The music usually makes/breaks a fight.

and finally; minimal talking/yelling/screaming. I want to hear the sounds of swords clashing/slashing, fists connecting, bones breaking, grunts/moans of pain, etc.

Needless but don't bother with the anime version; shit was basically the Akame ga Kill adaptation of 2008.

like the Akame Ga Kill anime, it was a +20 episode series for a good monthly manga.. but despite having a capable studio, it had the budget of a 13 episode adaptation.


-got stuck with a mediocre director
-cheap dialogue done by no name screen writers
-poor episode planning
- violence censors and filler eichi to attract advertising/sponsors from coroprations like P&G, Mcdonalds, etc.

AgK 1.0

you're in for a fun ride if you read the manga though.

unless you're an animeonlyfag or take yourself way too seriously, you can't deny that it was a fun ride until the anime came out and if you push yourself past the first eight chapters you genuinely found yourself on edge and had fun reading it.

Seeing the MC get his shit wrecked. not to the extent that he loses his abilities or dies or anything, but enough to show that he's not completely overpowered. bonus points if he gets destroyed despite harnessing the power of friendship/asspull trump card/new weapon.

also confirming romance pairings. I don't give a flying fuck about shipping, but i appreciate when an author can commit to a canon romance and keep it off to the side. I don't like seeing action plots derailed by some supporting character acting tsun-tsun for the MC and starting a boring arc.

asshole, scum of the earth villains are great too. ones you actually hate to the point where you feel your ears heat up as they speak. villains who are realistically horrible people and who patronize and scoff at the protagonists are great. basic example is Dio kissing Erina and smacking her around. he went out of his way to hurt jonathan right where it hurt most, and had himself an evil chuckle about it after.

>>119415919
I like seeing the protagonist's powers actually fuck them up or have serious side effects when they go all-out.

for example, edgelord dude uses fire to fight, but it actually burns him when he uses it. there's smoke and burned hair mixed in with his oh-so-cool flame attack.

that, or edgelord dude used fire to fight without any problems, but when he really guns it and goes all-out, it seriously fucks him up, like burning off limbs.

So much this.

Also I like it when injuries change the complexion of a fight, like broken ribs inhibiting breathing or a wounded leg reducing speed, or blood loss making the fighter see blurry etc.

>>119414146
And this. I like actual fighting, meaning I want to see both combatants and I like some strategy. Basically I want kung fu movie level choreography with some simple, creative powers thrown in that mesh well with the fight choreography. Is even better when fighters have their own distinctive styles with strengths and weaknesses. I know that's asking for a lot but that's my ideal.

>>119419890
It's sure one of those things that you've got to be careful with.

Black Star is definitely stronger than Maka but I meant a massive gulf like the one between Shinigami and Maka. Black Star would beat Maka but she'd probably put up a decent fight. Both of them are like ants compared to Shinigami though.

I can understand that shit too. Personally I always figured edgy was supposed to mean the show was trying seriously hard at being dark purely the the sake of being dark or trying to pass off as particularly mature content. These days people fling it at anything with an attitude they don't like though. The only thing that made me think of the term in recent memory was Akame ga Kill, but that shit is hardly fair since that sort of show will probably never be my cup of tea anyway and it's easy to be biased as fuck.

>>
>>119421367
>>119421439
I especially like it when the characters in question are really made to seem god like or they're decked out with super weapons or something and as the fight drags on and they're both getting worn down and exhausted until all that's left are just the two of them and they just start punching the shit out of each other. Ideally they aren't even really fighting anymore they're just taking turns to hit the other one until someone drops. No powers, no weapons, nothing fancy just two people beating the shit out of each other until one of them can't take it anymore.

That is so unfair. First of all, it's better that it did end right there because the way the manga goes after it's finished its adaptation is nothing short of a clusterfuck with time travel, gender bending, evil old me, the works. Not only that but the adaptation itself is pretty fair. A huge chunk of time spent inside of a gigantic girls bedroom in the manga = a huge chunk of time spent inside a girls bed room in the manga. That's not poor episode planning, that's a faithful adaptation.

Also, in terms of animation it's actually very good, and it has even better music than that. And are you really going to complain about ecchi in an ecchi manga? That is dumb

And so, in conclusion, you're wrong in everyway possible and need to kill yourself.

The MC is so small and pretty-boy looking that it's really hard for me to take him seriously as a melee fighter. That's the main thing keeping me from reading/watching this.
>>
>>119424401
He's not usually a melee fighter, most of his moves are counters.

>>119423970

faithful adaptation does not mean it is good, it has to adapt to the constraints of being a 13 episode anime, needlessly including large chunks of content where time could be spent on other things is poor episode planning.

Those are also good, but tricky to pull off satisfyingly, whereas the drawn out fights where they're reduced to sloppy punches are almost always fantastic.
I can't think of many fights like Ed vs. Greed that pull off the quick and skillfull decisive finisher as satisfyingly as that. Usually it's just a character being so powerful that they kill their opponent in one hit which is of course no fun at all.

I am a sucker for techniques. Usually works out as:

>All fighting is basically "which guy has the better trick"
or my favorite
>Fighting a much stronger opponent, but your ridiculous, gamey techniques and tricks keep you alive, even help you win

Most of you guys are too young to remember this but I was on /a/ when this anime was airing.

Literally the situation was akame ga kill adaptationitus 1.0, as he said.

There was so much hype from the mongofans before the show started then as time went on /a/ became a battleground over with it was shit or not.

They literally suffered the same problems with the director, corny dialogue, censorship, sponsorship pandering, added scenes that made no sense... Mostly because they were both underbudget for two course series.

Ironically they both have decent OSTs but the manga fanbase hyped the series both times that would make one wonder if they would have near movie quality animation because of it was be assume this would be Madhouse's/Whitefox's most incredible work.

This actually almost happened a third time with studio Gonzo and a god tier battle series called 'Alive: The Final Evolution'.

This kind of shit happens because executives like to tell authors that it's going to be advertisement for the original medium even if it's not a perfect adaptation and the studio views it as basically a 'junk-bond' of sorts, "if Elfin lied and Shadowstar Narutaru were able to gain relative success food budget juggling maybe we might hit a golden egg too"

Ah god, Merry was a good manga until it pulled

MC had a good power progression, it was clear he wasn't overpowered, nor too underpowered, but just enough to keep up with the curve and solidly hold his own in the battles, actually accomplishing stuff.

I like it when it's done right, which is very very unusual, especially considering how overused it is. Too often it's just "I'M ANGRY SO HERE'S A MASSIVE POWERUP, I'M NOW GOING TO WIN THIS FIGHT ONE-SIDEDLY DESPITE ALMOST DYING TWO SECONDS AGO".
Stuff where the Berserk mode is a *serious* drawback (not shit like Naruto going past 4 tails will shorten his lifespan or something), and isn't an instant win button.
If they pull the "can't tell friend from foe while berserk" card, then there better be a plot-related friend killing, otherwise that's just a worthless stipulation.

The anime does it better. In the anime Cruz is the brains of the operation and while it may seem cheezy I liked the normal guy being the linch pin in a pass or fail operation between a bunch of x-men. And that's still a forte of his in the manga, but when you give him not a power but THE power that makes him the ultimate shield, he looses a lot of dynamic in any given scenario. He know longer has to be protected, and now he can defend himself against incredibly powerful attacks. Just takes a lot away from the manga, especially when it got bogged down with "Cruz, you've got to master your fragment or you can't keep with the group" faggotry. Shame.

Akame ga Kill was a faithful adaptation up until the anime-only-end and it fucking sucked because literally everything was just copy-pasted from the manga.
Scenes like Tatsumi/Wave equipping Incursio/Grand Chariot should have fucking amazing in anime form, but they were just so underwhelming because the anime team did nothing creative with them, just copied over the manga panels for a stylish still frame, added voices and sound effects and there you go.

I agree that some studios take too much liberty with what they adapt, but there has to be SOME direction that makes the anime a different experience than the manga other than seeing the characters move between manga frames.

Go play Asuras Wrath, or watch it on Youtube. Whichever. Its basically an interactive anime movie with tons of cutscenes, quicktime events and some boss fights.

Theres lots of parts where some evil assholes is giving their big speech about how great they are, and a quicktime even will sometimes come up to tell them to shut the fuck up and punch them in the fucking face.

Asura is basically rage incarnate. Hes like a mix betwen the Hulk, and 40K orks. The madder he gets, the stronger he gets. And if he gets mad enough, he can basically make anything happen.

The games cheesy as shit, but its fucking glorious.

Captain Bravo from Buso Renkin too. His Buso Renkin is a suit of armor with no real offensive applications. He is the top guy in the Alchemist Army and all he does is cast fist.

I fucking love this as long as it's not one of the main characters, but just a side character.

Bonus points if they have a complete superiority complex over whoever the enemy is. Like in HxH, Netero fighting Meruem, saying shit like "Ants should just get crushed underfoot, that is your role in the world and our roll as humans" after getting two of his limbs chopped off. Meruem even tries to talk with him instead of fighting and Netero just fucking ignores all words of reason in order to crush the enemy.

More bonus points (independant of the first bonus points) if the character dies horribly by getting simply outpowered and crushed. It doesn't have to a tragic death, but as long as they get introduced as invincible flawless death incarnate on the battlefield, and end as a dying husk against an enemy they could barely scratch.

The only true ninjas are most Anbu members and stuff like Uchiha clan for the most part (shit like Sasuke and Madara excluded of course, and half the time you should exclude Itachi as well).
Sarutobi was pretty ninja and so was Kankuro I guess until he started using Sasori's puppet and all of its abilities with it.

Even in the DBZ arcs when the choreography started getting really bland and shitty, it's still got a lot of impact, especially compared to weak shit we have now like Akame ga Kill or what's left of Bleach.

A jobber is somebody who jobs, as in, it's their "job" to lose the fight. They are usually a pretty strong character in their own right, but they always go down in a crucial moment in order to make somebody else look better.

No, a jobber never loses on propose, he just loses, because the character itself was created by the author to lose an make others look good, best example is Rock Lee in Naruto part I.

The big three actually do have good fights. Or did. One Piece has been kinda lackluster lately, but Oda doesn't seem to have lost his touch like Kubo and Kishimoto did.

Kubo's fight choreography petered out during the Soul Society arc. I think the last actual sword fight in the manga was Ichigo vs Kenpachi. Everything after that became magic spam bullshit and grew progressively more stupid.

As for Kishimoto, he had some pretty interesting choreography up through most of the chuunin exams, but it began degrading pretty rapidly after the introduction of rasengan. The fact that Kishimoto's art also began getting worse didn't help, so soon his fights were just blurry, badly drawn messes, so any attempt at interesting choreography just became ugly and indecipherable.

One Piece, on the other hand, has lots of fantastic moments like pic related throughout.

The rare character who can transcend reality. They couldn't beat him in a fair fight so they had to erase him from existence. Even then he was able to reappear through sheer willpower.

This was something like 7 or 8 years ago. Except for CoM, every game up to 358 Days had gotten a manga but none of them ever finished.

Actual fistfight would quickly degenerate into gay grappling low fight, and melee weapon fight will be ended in 2-3 blows and too many staring at opponent to look for a chance to hit scenes thus will bring you unlimited midfight flashbacks.

Real fight isn't interesting at all, anon.

Saitama might as well be a side character, since all of the primary conflict in the current chapters revolves around the hero association

This is more post-fight than anything but I fucking love it when the MC beats a villain and falls in love with him/her.

I've been playing a lot of Guilty Gear Xrd lately, and I personally feel like I get a fucking power up every time it happens.

Can't think of an instance off the top of my head, but I do like it when a character goes from berserk mode to calm and collected to finish the fight.
