Anime series are known to have some very engaging, well-animated and well-choreographed fight scenes.
One of my favourite fight scenes in anime that I’ve seen is Bakugou vs Uraraka. I love in this scene how it shows off their quirks and how well they can be used, but more importantly it showcases characters’ personalities. In this scene Uraraka is given the respect she deserves by Bakugou and Aizawa. Bakugou doesn’t view her as a ‘poor girl’ but gives her a real fight and doesn’t underestimate her at all – he’s shown to be excited to fight her because of his respect for her as a fighter. The audience also sees how Bakugou respects Uraraka, which is very important to start to show his character as his development is gradual in the series. I also respected Aizawa so much after this scene for how well he understands his students, how well he reads situations and how much he respects his students also.
I love the season 1 Hanami vs Tokyo and Kyoto students because we get to see so many different techniques in one fight. I like how originally in the Exchange Event the Kyoto students are against the Tokyo students because of their principal’s instructions that they have to follow – and now they come together. It shows how they’re all students and they come together because they actually have good relationships with each other. Watching Inumaki, Kamo and Fushiguro fight first against Hanami is so interesting to see the Crused Speech Technique, more of Fushiguro’s shikigami and Kamo’s Blood Manipulation Technique. Then swapping out to Maki getting to show off her physical prowess and skills with Cursed Tools and Megumi also showing how well he’s progressed with his Cursed Tools practise and his new technique was awesome. Then in the moment were they swap out with Itadori and Todo, it shows great teamwork how Maki comments that their work is ‘done’ and they can fall back to get their injuries healed.
