A lot of people use the term “epic” for video games (which is overused but I won’t get into that). But have you ever seen a anime that you thought was epic? I will post my thoughts later in this thread.
Its similar to the famous anime thread we had back then. When I think epic I think not just animes I like but ones that made strides in the industry and had a big impact on the anime community. I also think of huge battles with killer animation and something that is very moving.
That being said I really cant list many of my favorite animes lol.
DB and DBZ for helping the anime industry grow over here.
Neon Genesis Evangelion
Kiki's Delivery Service
InuYasha (yes i know but it grabbed alot of fans and help VIZ become a juggernaut)
Gundam Wing - Was the cornerstone to the franchise
Now in terms of fighting (grand battles against all odds saving the world etc) I wouldnt have the same list. Although alot of animes have similar plots with those themes (kid becomes hero saves the world and such) I'm talking about animes that just blew you away with how large the fight/battle was or how important it was. Something that you really went "dude that was awesome this battle is huge and so much is riding on it".
That being said well theres arent too many animes on my list either.
their were moments in Bleach but the battles werent that big
Moments in NGE
Moments in Gundam Seed and Destiny
The fight with Shishio in Rurouni Kenshin
However if we just assessed the sized of the battle I would only says Gundam...I havent seen a really big battle on a grand scale...infact I really cant think of one anime that tops Gundam that I have seen.
