The style of execution for combat scenes greatly vary. Some of the most clichéd ones are the prolonged preparation for a few attacks and the cycling a repeated image as a filler. Additionally, some fight scenes seem to lack consistent flow, where sometimes the character's actions seem a little sluggish and unnatural at certain points. Also I got this from another site so I can't take credt for this one. I love the fighting style of Samurai Champloo, because it's always fast and always at the same pace too. Also, the entire fights themselves are unique and don't contain too much repetition.
