It’s Day 26 of the 30 Day Anime Challenge, we are so close to the end that I can almost taste it! So today I’m supposed to talk about my favorite anime fight… Well, I’ve seen a lot of anime fights over the years so picking one as the best is not an easy choice.
So the idea for this post’s choice came from fellow blogger, Katrina Sade’s Day 23 Anime Challenge post! After reading her Roy Mustang post, I knew exactly which fight scene I was going to write about for this post… My pick for the best anime fight scene is…
*I am not finished with Full Metal Alchemist (I’m somewhere around volume 16 or so), so please keep major spoilers to yourself!*
The Roy Mustang v. Envy fight from Full Metal Alchemist! This is kind of a response to my Day 12 post about my choice for the saddest anime scene. Once again we are delving back into the fallout that occurred after Maes Hughes’s death… When Hughes died he left a sizable hole in the lives of those he left behind, outside of his wife and daughter, no character was more effected by his passing than Roy Mustang. We’ve seen Mustang in action before, but never with this much unrestrained power and rage, the result is one of the coolest fight scenes I have ever seen!!
This isn’t so much a fight, as it is a one-sided rage induced beat down! When Envy admitted to murdering Hughes, it was the straw that broke the camel’s back, just look at his face, Mustang becomes completely unhinged. All bets are off during this fight, we get to see the full extent of the Flame Alchemist’s power as he dishes out some sweet justice. This fight taught me one thing, never piss off Roy Mustang!
So that’s my pick for the best anime fight… What do you think of my choice? What would you have chosen as the best anime fight? Let me know in the comments section! As always THANK YOU for reading!!!
