30 Day Anime Challenge Day 10: Fighter Anime

“Favorite Fighter Anime”

This is a category that can get a little fuzzy; exactly how much does the focus have to be on fighting to qualify as a fighter anime? But  I think it’s safe to assume that s-CRY-ed counts.

I’ve seen s-CRY-ed (a very good example of how some anime titles having unusual capitalization and punctuation) described as a cross between a fighting anime and X-Men, due to the premise of people being born with a wide variety of unique superhuman powers. The diversity of abilities (some of which are very unique) certainly makes for some very interesting fights.

Anime with fighting tournaments are essentially a subgenre of their own, so I’ll also name my favorite in that category: Yu Yu Hakusho.
