>there are people in this board who don't think Peco vs Kazama was the greatest fight in anime history
No you're right.
It's the greatest thing ever.
Really makes me regret that I can't be like them.
The whole episode was filled with those.
I just can't wait to see Ace getting BTFO in motion.
not even the greatest fight in sports anime
This is not an anime like prince of tennis, where it's focused on battles, special movements, etc.
The fight itself is a medium for characters to grow. >>159262591 pretty much this.
I get it but don't agree.
Smile was a got damn unbeatable super robot but all of a sudden some loser who doesn't train can match him and go on to nationals?
No way Smile couldn't make it to nationals and do better.
Spoilt the atmosphere from peco vs dragon that was generated in the manga.
Peco vs Dragon is quite easily one of the greatest fights in manga but it is not one of the greatest fights in anime.
>some loser who doesn't train
Did you watch the show?
Also you apparently missed the fact that Smile didn't enjoy the sport at all, while Peco LOVED the sport to his core. They were both gifted naturals (Smile moreso than Peco), but they both put in equivalent amounts of training and effort, with the deciding factor being their passion for ping pong.
No smile has more talent too.
Smile is the best ping pong player but he lost on purpose to peco because he knew peco wanted it more and his leg was injured and he wanted peco to act earnestly like he did when they were both 5 year olds .
Hey fuck you.
