This movie is considered as the best action anime movie of 2018. Its the first movie of this anime and it features its 2 main characters : All Might and his successor Izuku Midoriya. The story happend in an Island where there is a big research facility related to Quirks.

And the same as always, our heroes work together to defeat the villain in this movie. If you are a new fan of this anime, make sure not to miss this.

Berserk: The Golden Age Trilogy Movie

To fully appreciate this movie, you have to watch the 3 movies. Since this list is for best anime action movies, it would not be appropriate not to include this as Berserk is an anime known for its action scenes. If I rate the first movie, it will just be average, just right for anyone looking for an action-packed anime to watch. Watch out for the  Zodd fight and Griffith’s assassination attempts as these are some of the highlights in the movie.
The 2nd movie was still an average for me. I think on this part, I was looking for more action fights but it was not satisfied. I do not say that there are fewer fights, still the fights are there are really cool for me. Also, I would just like to say that in this 2nd movie, I saw the strongest action scene in the series so you have to watch out for it. The battle scenes I was referring to was greatly executed.
Of course since this is a trilogy, the most anticipating and exciting part would be the last one. I personally think that there are parts of this last movie that was really greatly done especially in the highlight fights. Being a trilogy, you will also appreciate the story of this anime movie, the personal stories and conflicts of the main characters and how these were settles.
Rest assured that after watching this trilogy, you will not only remember and appreciate the main characters but the supporting characters as well. There are times in the movies where these characters shine especially when it comes to the battle/actions scenes.

Afro samurai resurrection

When there are swords and samurais, expect that anime movie to be action-packed. This made Afro Samurai Resurrection on of the best fighting anime movies of all time.  The best thing I would like to stress-out first about this movie is the great animation. When we watch any anime movie, most often, we could easily determine if it the people behind it invested time and effort in its animation. And again, I would like to reiterate that the animation will satisfy you most especially for fans looking for some unforgettable fight scenes.
The villain here is a girl. Yah, I know what you are thinking, its a mismatch. However, her desire for revenge makes her someone you don't want to mess with.
The movie is not all about action and fights, its comedy relief is also priceless. So after some intense fights, you'll have a nice laugh with some comedy lines. One thing that you have to watch out for this movie is its ending, some loved it, but many are saying that it's quite predictable. For me, it's kinda predictable but still a great ending in general.

One Piece: Strong World

If you are the kind of person who is looking for action and a lot of fun, then the best anime movie for you is One Piece: Strong World. There is no need to explain why this movie will definitely be fun to watch with Luffy around. Most Otaku knows about Luffy and how funny and candid he is. A happy go lucky caption who sees everything in a very plain perspective. However, it doesn't mean that One Piece is just all about adventure and laughs, it also has a lot of fight scenes. All main characters in Luffy's team know how to fight so expect a non-stop action movie.
Expect that this movie was crafted well because the movie production was overseen by its creator, no other than Eiichiro Oda. This movie is one of those best movies of this franchise because there are tones of designs provided by its original author. This only means that most designs will be consistent with what you see on the original anime series - which is definitely a great news.
As usual, when it comes to One Piece fights, you certainly wouldn't want to take your eyes off the screen. You will appreciate the animation and character designs which would not be a surprise because the movie was well budgeted. If you're a One Piece fan, you definitely must not miss this movie.

Bleach: The DiamondDust Rebellion (Bleach: The Movie 2)

There are millions of Bleach fans out there mainly because it has a lot of great fight scenes. So if you are looking for an anime movie with lots of action,  you shouldn't miss Bleach: The DiamondDust Rebellion. Animation and sound are both good making everything in the movie look more interesting and dramatic. Bleach is an anime series with blades and swords so expect a good samurai movie. However, this is not the typical samurai movie as it involves super-powers, magic and spells.
The story, in general, is quite common, but something you can disregard because its Bleach and what's more important than the story is the action scenes. If you have watched this anime series for some time now, you know what I mean. So overall, it's still a great action movie for anime fans, again great animation and sound.
If you love the characters in this anime series, you wouldn't mind the short time you see them in this movie. As we all know, Bleach movie has a lot of main characters and since this is a movie, expect that there are some that will only get tiny cameos. Most of the scenes happened in soul society, so if you are a fan of the characters in the real world, then it might be a bit disappointing. This movie is for the fans of Toshiro Hitsugaya, so if you're a fan, watch this. Of course, the main characters like Ichigo Kurosaki and the other captains will always be on the center stage.
These are the movies we recommend you watch if you looking for movies with top-notched fight scenes. When the action starts, it would be non-stop and could get you at the edge of your seat. Enjoy!

Trigun: Badlands Rumble

If you're an anime fan for a long time already, you definitely would have heard about Vash The Stampeded and you also know that when this character is around, it only means action. This action movie will definitely fill your thirst for gunfights. Though Vash is a person who loves guns and is pretty good at it, he has this philosophy to preserve life. This leads to unwanted fights in the future as the persons he beat would somehow make a comeback in the days to come for vengeance.
When it comes to the overall design and presentation of the movie, actions scenes and characters often look sharp and great details.
In general, this is a not a bad movie to watch if you want to see some action. The story might lack some substance but anime fanatics who are looking for a good action film, this would be a great pick.

Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos

The Elric brothers stars in this movie. For those who have followed the Fullmetal Alchemist anime series, this movie happened at some point after Ed and Al gained knowledge about the Philosopher's Stones.
The movie became popular due to the great action fights both on hand-on-hand scenes and those that involved magic or alchemy where the anime movie actions were closely the same if not better than in the anime series  . Creators of the movie were very successful in making the fights look really interesting and thrilling. There is a part at the beginning of the movie where the main characters have to deal with a runaway train. It was definitely one of the most thrilling moments in the movie.
There are parts of the story where you can say that it's really a solid one making this movie a must-watch. However, do expect that it would still somehow end to common cliches.

Dragon ball Z battle of Gods

As what I have researched, this is the first Dragon Ball Z movie brought to theaters. This only means that its an excellent movie deserving to be one of the good movies with outstanding action scenes.  Animation is highly commended and characters were well polished.
The good thing about this anime series is it's not all about fights as what most of us would expect in a Dragon Ball Z movie. I personally loved how many of the characters especially the main characters were just goofing around and showing more about their self/characters - these are funny stuff you surely would laugh about.
I would also like to note that most probably, there will be a part of this movie, that you'll be emotional or teary-eyed especially if you have been watching this anime series since the beginning.
Here's a nice review of the movie

Ghost in the Shell Movie (1995)

Hajime No Ippo Season 1 Best Fights

Boxing is a popular sport world-wide. Countless fans across the globe are excited every time skillful and well-renowned boxers beat each other up with precise and powerful punches in the ring. Some of them are even willing to spend a crazy amount just to see it firsthand. With the established fame of boxing, it’s not surprising that a lot of manga and anime creators have tried harboring inspiration from this and thus the creation of many spectacular sports anime. Boxing is a sport that could also be considered martial arts. Among hundreds of titles out there, none can match Hajime No Ippo. This might be a debatable claim especially for those who prefer old-school anime but every otaku will definitely agree that Hajime No Ippo perfectly captured the excitement and drama behind boxing.

Are you among the few who still haven’t watched Hajime No Ippo? Don’t be discouraged upon knowing that this anime title was aired way back 2000.  The animation may not be as flashy compared to the current line up but it will definitely meet or even surpass your expectations when it comes to humor and action. As the series progress, you’ll find yourself rooting for the main character, Makunouchi Ippo without even trying.

He is a lovable protagonist. It’s the typical story where he is a weakling at first and gets stronger as he works hard in achieving his goals but there’s something magical on how it is portrayed in Hajime No Ippo which made it an instant hit. I can’t explain it but you’ll definitely agree with me after watching a couple of episodes. Is the hype not enough? Browse through this list of the Best Hajime No Ippo Season 1 Fights. If these awesome clips won’t urge you to watch the series, nothing will.



Makunouchi Ippo vs Miyata Ichirou

Ippo is a complete beginner in boxing yet he finds himself against Miyata who is regarded as the best in the gym when it comes to technical boxing.  The first match between these two rookies is supposed to be just a form of initiation to test Ippo’s resolve to be a boxer. However, the atmosphere eventually changed as Miyata realizes the incredible potential of his opponent. Ippo is sluggish and has no sense of balance but his punches pack and absurd amount of power. Even his jabs are strong enough to intimidate the composed Miyata.  The result was as expected though. Miyata was able to defeat Ippo but a rematch was decided after three months. Will Ippo’s power added with a few experience be enough to defeat Miyata as they clash the second time around?


Makunouchi Ippo vs Yosuke Oda

Yosuke Oda was once regarded as a strong boxer. He held his pride on his strong straight punch which can easily knock out opponents especially if he gets serious. However, Oda rarely does so. He is not a hard worker and is usually goofing off with his coach’s daughter. He is the complete opposite of Ippo who devotes his time and effort in the gym until his body reaches its limit.  Ippo is excited and his confident about his training but having nerves in your first amateur boxing match is completely normal. But then again, this will be one of his disadvantages among with his lack of experience and overall boxing technique. Will this be an outstanding debut for Ippo? Or will Oda turn it around just in the neck of time?–8hCi_9Iw

Makunouchi Ippo vs Yoshio Fujigawa

This time around, Ippo faces a tricky opponent. Yoshi Fujigawa is pretty much an average boxer. However, he uses underhanded techniques like head-butts to turn the tides of battle in his favor. Newcomers like Ippo usually fall prey to this way of fighting. Head-butts are inevitable in boxing especially during furious exchanges but it is another story if it’s intentional. Ippo failed to read the situation and got himself into trouble after suffering from a cut. His enemy deliberately aimed his injury to worsen it and force the referee to stop the fight. Will this be Ippo’s first loss? Or can he somehow surprise everyone with a comeback victory?


Makunouchi Ippo vs Jason Ozma

Jason Ozma is an American soldier stationed in Japan.  Unlike Ippo’s previous enemy, he is a compassionate one. He wants glory not just for himself but also for the people who helped him along the way. He boasts an intimidating physique and a powerful hook that rivaled Ippo’s. The fight was brutal. Ippo staggers every time Ozma lands a solid hook. Normally, such kind of exchange would end with Ozma’s opponent laying on the matt but that’s not the case with Ippo.  He absorbs every blow and retaliates. This is only possible because of his unmatched determination and well-trained body. Is Ozma’s powerful hook enough to beat our hero? Or will it be another hard-earned win for Ippo?


Makunouchi Ippo vs Hayami Ryuuichi

Hayami Ryuuichi is Ippo’s most popular opponent yet. He is regarded as a prodigy. Sports newspapers feature him as an amateur to look out for. Although Ippo has been undefeated, his fights were close ones. Hayami on the other hand overpowers his opponents with his fast and destructive jabs called “shotgun”. The eyes can barely follow his jab making it almost impossible to dodge. Hayami also has good footwork since he trains hard like Ippo. Probably the only deciding factor between these two amazing rookies is their heart. Who wants it more? Will Ippo prove his worth by defeating a prodigy? Or will the odds favor Hayami and his shotgun?


Miyata Ichirou vs Mashiba Ryou

Miyata and Ippo promised to meet in the all-rookie championship. It was supposed to be their deciding match to see who really the best is. However, their plan was derailed because of Mashiba Ryou. Miyata is known for his composure in the ring and amazing footwork. He seems like dancing instead of fighting as he barrage opponents with precise punches.  Miyata also has a trump card. By finding a slight opening as his opponent delivers a punch, he can deliver a devastating blow that is reinforced by his enemy’s momentum. This is known in boxing as a “counter”.  Mashiba on the other hand is the opposite of elegant. He is known to do anything just to win. Mashiba’s perseverance and hunger for winning can be explained by his current financial struggle. He is also a loving brother who vowed to provide for his little sister no matter what. Can Miyata overcome this unsuspected hurdle to fight Ippo in the ring once more? Or will Mashiba upset everyone and be the dark horse of the all-rookie boxing tournament?


Makunouchi Ippo vs Mashiba Ryou

The championship match of the all-rookie boxing tournament has finally come. However, everyone was dumbfounded to see the two unexpected parties. Ippo replaced the highly favored Hayami while Mashiba got Miyata‘s spot.  Various speculations erupted. Although a few sided with Mashiba because of his attitude and intimidating aura, boxing analysts favored him over Ippo. They all believe that it’s impossible for Ippo to establish his fighting range against Mashiba with long arms. Mashiba’s arms are not just long but extremely powerful and fast. His jabs look like whips from a far. Even with good defense and dodging maneuvers, any boxer will find it hard to deal with someone who uses the jab so well. Ippo’s advantage against his previous opponent is his power and tenacity. The latter is a trait that Mashiba possesses. It can even be argued that his willpower and drive to win surpasses Ippo’s.  How can Ippo win against Mashiba? Will this be Ippo’s first huge step towards greater heights in boxing?


Best Sword Art Online Season 1 Fights

Sword Art Online Season 1 easily climbed up the list of popular anime titles of all time when it was released in 2012.  There are a lot of factors that contributed to its success but possible the most obvious one is its art style. Sword Art Online introduced a refreshing feel. It’s as if every scene is carved out from all our expectations of what a fantasy world would be. The sceneries and overall beauty of the fantasy world is just a small part of it. Both the main and supporting characters were well thought-of. Their equipment and skills were carefully laid out to match their personality and affiliations.

The RPG elements introduced all throughout the series were also new flavors back then. Currently, there are now a lot of anime series similar to SAO like Overlord. It’s fun to watch an anime that makes you remember fun-filled memories when you were playing a MMORPG with friends. Slaying monsters to gain experience points and ganging up a powerful boss monster just to obtain rare loot are just two scenarios that will surely hype RPG fanatics while watching Sword Art Online. The love story between the two main characters, Kirito and Asuna, served as a delightful cherry on top.  However, some fans are a bit disappointed that the development of their feelings toward each other seemed rush.



As Kirito and Silica were heading out after harvesting a rare item which can revive dead pets, Rosaia and a group of thieves blocked their way. Silica was scared because they were outnumbered and she had yet to know Kirito’s combat ability. Rosalia and his companions had red names. This means that they already killed players in the past. It was a dire situation for Silica but Kirito remained his cool. He was confident because of the level difference. Despite having the numbers, Rosalia’s group can’t damage Kirito enough to overcome his passive regeneration. No matter how hard they try, their efforts ended up pointless. This did not only affirm Kirito’s strength but also revealed how being trapped in a game can corrupt people. Rosalia and his group were evidently denying the fact that they will die in real life if they lose all their hit points in the game.


Kirito is the hero. He was chosen from the start to save everyone from the being trapped in SAO. It was not explained whether it was by chance or if Akihiko found something special in Kirito. He was also clueless about his destiny until a rare skill suddenly appeared. It gave him the ability to dual-wield. Kirito was still confused why he got the skill. The only thing clear to him is that he will eventually be put on a tight spot in the near future and be forced to use the skill. This is why he decided to get a spare sword. Everything displayed on the blacksmith shop he went to were not on par with his requirements. He want his second sword to be at least as strong as his main weapon. He was lucky to meet Asuna’s friend, Rika. She personally accompanied Kirito in search for a Frost dragon. The scales of an ice dragon can be used to form a strong and sharp blade. Their adventure was short-lived but Rika can’t help but admire Kirito’s bravery and skills.


After catching a rare ingredient, Kirito was searching for someone with a high cooking level. He went to his friend to discuss it and found. Fate clearly smiled on Kirito as he met Asuna there.  Kirito was very excited after knowing that Asuna maxed out her cooking skill and the feeling is mutual since Asuna could barely believe that a rare ingredient is in front of her. Since Kirito is doesn’t have cooking tools, Asuna invited him to her house. Kuradeel, Asuna’s bodyguard immediately objected. He portrayed that it was his duty to protect his Vice-Captain but he clearly has ulterior motives. Asuna insisted that it was alright and shed dragged Kirito away from Kuradeel. The day after, Kuradeel was relentless in pursuing Asuna and preventing her from making a party with Kirito. His persistence even qualifies as an act of obsession as he continued to chase Asuna until Kirito stopped him. Kuradeel insisted to have a duel with Kirito. Although it ended in just a few seconds, it was long enough for Kirito to prove that he can protect Asuna.

Heathcliff was the avatar of Kayaba Akihiko, the creator of Sword Art Online.  He placed himself as the leader of the Knights of the Blood guild, the biggest and most powerful in SAO. Their guild led every expedition under the objective of clearing all the floors as soon as possible. Asuna is her Vice-Captain. Although their relationship as depicted in the anime series is only as companions, Heathcliff is protective towards Asuna. He thought of Asuna as an important piece in their guild which is why he challenged Kirito to a duel. If Kirito wins, he can leave with Asuna without further complications concerning the Knights of the Blood. However, if the duel’s result favors Heathcliff, Kirito will be forced to join their guild.

The duel did not last long. Kirito’s gear is far from shabby. He can even hold his ground against a couple of monsters without a party. Despite being an offensive behemoth, Kirito was clearly outmatched against Heathcliff’s defense. He wielded a huge shield which blocked every attack Kirito mustered.. This was happening while Kirito is slowly losing hit points from Heathcliff’s weak but precise attacks. Kirito turned the tide of the battle around by using dual swords. He somehow overpowered Heathcliff’s defense and was about to land the decisive blow when Heathcliff did something that shocked Kirito.


Gleam Eyes was the 74th Floor boss. They needed to beat 100 floors in order to finish the game and come back to the real world. Although it’s the boss of a floor that is still considerably far from their intended final destination, Gleam Eyes is a fearful opponent.  It’s huge and muscular frame alone are enough to scare even the bravest vanguards in the front line.

Every previous boss battle were carefully planned to minimize casualty and optimize the use of resources but it was not the case against Gleam Eyes. Kirito and Asuna long with Klien and his guild members were force to engage it. They were left with no choice since they need to do so in order to save a group of soldiers from being slaughtered. Despite Kirito’s warning, they mindlessly fought the boss thinking that their superiority in numbers alone is enough to deal with it. Kirito was hesitant at first but Asuna gave in to her compassion and rushed to help the weary soldiers before it was too late. Her growing feelings toward Asuna and his past experience when he lost party members convinced Kirito to step in. It was obviously hopeless battle. At one point, Asuna and Klein already accepted their inevitable fate. But then again, they were clueless about Kirito’s trump card.

Best Overlord Anime Season 1 Fights

Overlord is one of the newest MMROPG-inspired anime to hit the market- it’s now among the best anime mmorpg. Recently, this genre has been flooded with titles of different setup and characters but there seem to be something unique about Overlord that made it a notch higher in terms of popularity. I personally think it’s because of its the heart-pounding overlord fights. It started out as a light novel and immediately jumped towards the manga platform and finally got an anime version within such a surprisingly short period. This is nothing but just one indication of its popularity along with its huge fan base and high views in majority of anime websites where you can watch titles for free. It’s popularity is one of the reasons why this post about best fights  in overlord is the first article published in Source Anime.

Is there something unique about Overlord Season 1 which made it so popular? The overall theme as well as the main overlord characters and environment are far from being unique. Overlord’s art style is also not as impressive compared to newly released anime titles like Sword Art Online and Gate. There can only be one reason behind the warm welcome of anime fans toward this title and that is its well-balanced mixture of comic relief and action. Overlord‘s story is also seasoned with mystery and unpredictability since the main character has various personal and intrapersonal struggles.

Some may say that the overpowered main character makes this anime title lame but anyone who experienced playing a MMORPG for a long time can relate to his problems and won’t consider them a walk in the park. How can anyone maintain their cool after being transported to an unknown world without having a clear bearing of your own strength and the loyalty and behavior of the people around you? Would you remain carefree and live a peaceful life? Or would you aspire to make a name for yourself despite the dangers? The MC took the latter road which marked the start of his new adventure. What the opening below and decide if you want to continue watching it. Surely, you will do.

Overlord Opening


Overlord Characters – Ainz Gown, Momon, Nabe and more

Another notable feature of Overlord that made it an interesting title for most anime fanatics is its fight scenes. MMORPG players will surely feel nostalgic as they watch Ainz Ooal Gown cast various buffs to himself prior an intense battle versus his own guardian Shalltear Bloodfallen. This also goes true as a team of adventurers called Sword of Darkness along with Momon and Nabe slew a group of orcs and goblins on their way to Carne Village. If mentioning these fight scenes already awakened your hunger for anime fights then read further and feast on this list of the Best Overlord Season 1 Fights. The arrangement from great to best is of personal taste but feel free to leave a comment if you deem it’s completely messed up or if another fight scene is better than any in the list.

Swords of Darkness vs Goblins and Ogres

Sword of Darkness is an adventure team composed of Peter Mauk (warrior), Lukrut Volve (ranger), Ninya (magic caster) and Dyne Woodwonder (druid). The group is said to exclusive to boys which is why Ninya is forced to hide her true gender. They seem to share a close relationship during their adventure with Momon the adventurer which indicates that the team has been formed for quite some time.  The fight broke out when they accepted the request of Momon the adventurer to help them in escorting Nfirea Bareare. The fight did not last long but it was the first time Momon displayed his unequalled strength as a warrior. Sword of Darkness was left with nothing but admiration as they witness Momon’s  swords slice through one enemy after another like they were soft puddings.

Ainz ooal Gown vs Clementine

Ainz Ooal Gown decided to hide his true identity and become an adventurer named Momon. A series of events led him facing an assassin known for her speed and cruelty, Clementine. She was the one who murdered every member of Sword of Darkness which somehow annoyed Momon. He was planning to use the team as a stepping stone to increase his fame and spread words about his greatness yet it was all for nothing. Clementine is clueless that she is facing the greatest magical caster that ever set foot in the New World, Ainz Ooal Gown.   She is confident that their fight will turn out just like her previous battles where she kills her opponents using swift and brutal combination of blows and collects their adventurer plate.

Nabe vs Khajiit

While Momon is facing Clementine, Nabe was tasked to deal with Khajiit. She obviously outclassed Khajiit in every aspect. However, the latter has a trump card. He gained possession of magic item which allows him to control two skeletal dragons. These ferocious undead creatures are said to be immune to any kind of magic which made them a nightmare to magic casters. Khajiit believes that Nabe is a plain magic caster so his overconfidence during the first part of the battle was clear as water. Nonetheless, he slowly realized that he might end up paying a high price for his recklessness as Nabe unveils her true identity.

Gazef Stronoff vs Slane Theocracy

Gazef Stronoff is unmatched within the Re-Estize Kingdom as being a warrior. He holds the title Warrior Captain. Clementine also mentioned him during her fight against Momon as one of the few warriors that can hold ground against her. He loyally serves that king and this time it led him to a trap. Although it was not the intention of his master since he was forced by pressure coming from royal families who oppose his rule, it’s clear that he had a heavy heart upon ordering his precious soldier to a mission which is obviously a trap. Gazef fully understood his situation and after assuring the safety of the village that was used as a bait to lure him out he bravely faced the forces of Slane Theocracy which overwhelmed him in both numbers and power.

Overlord Ainz vs Shaltear Bloodfallen

Shaltear Bloodfallen is the strongest among the Floor Guardians of Nazarick. This is one of the reasons why having Ainz Ooal Gown personally subdue her after being controlled by an unknown enemy imposed huge risk. Another reason is that she specializes in Holy attacks, which is lethal to those of the undead class like Ainz. Her creator also gave Shaltear a healing item making the battle a lot trickier.  Despite the known disadvantages, Ainz was determined to solve the problem on his own. There are a lot of reasons for this action but the most important one is that he does not want the Guardians to fight among themselves to the death. He may be able to revive any of them who perish during the battle but having a memory of killing an ally is a burden Ainz does not what his loyal subordinates to bear. This battle is a test for Ainz not just as a strategist but a ruler of Nazarick.
