    LF animes with amazing fighting scenes

    So I've been watching fate\stay night and really fell in love with how amazing the fighting looked in it, and I was wondering if there were any other animes with similar fighting? Shounens are cool, but I feel like the fighting is heavily broken up with speeches\flash backs and discussions, i'm honestly just looking for some sick nasty throw downs that look amazing. Also, if at all possible I'd like to avoid anything like.. old i guess, the whole sharp angled figures, triangle shoulders and 9 feet long legs are very displeasing to me

    Going to follow up with some easy ones.

    Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Bladeworks and Fate/Zero. Both on Crunchyroll.

    Beyond the 1% barrier.
    Samurai Champloo. It's basically a slightly generic storyline connecting AWESOME fight scenes.
    Reading A Song of Ice and Fire is like playing with an adorable puppy, then someone comes up out of nowhere, shoots the puppy and punches you in the face.

    I forgot to mention Samurai Champloo! I second that!

    If you like guns, Black Lagoon has TONS of fight scenes! Very brutal as well.

    Naruto sometimes has good fighting scenes when they do not talk to themselves about their feelings for 10 episodes.

    I'm going to get murdered because 'IT'S NOT ANIME! GRR', but I though the bending battles in Korra were very impressive, and all the main villains bring something new to the table.

    This. The fights in HNI is amazing, and the characters are all so damn great. I don't think I have laughed so much at any anime ever.

    Also agree with Fate/Zero and Fate/Stay Night, Kara no Kyoukai, Samurai Champloo, and Cowboy Bebop (show and especially movie).

    I would also throw in there Black Lagoon and Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood.

    If you want more action and less talking, then I'd go with Black Lagoon, FMA, and Cowboy Bebop movie.

    Rorouni Kenshin has some fight scenes, but most of them aren't really intriguing as Kenshin just mops the floor with them easily (until second half of season when his opponent is actually strong). Naruto has some good fight scenes but they are so far between that I'd say watching the 500+ episode show isn't really worth it just for the few interesting fight scenes in between. Same with Bleach, they have some EXCELLENT fight scenes, but they are far and few between filler.

    X (yes X are the name) lots of fighting between the people who want the world to end, or it shall survive.

    Macross + the pinnacle of "hand drawn" mecha fighting, you love it if you did like Gilgamesh and Berserker "dogfight" in Fate/Zero

    Hunter X Hunter 2011 has some awesome fight scenes. Agree with others on their suggestions, just adding mine.

    Akame ga Kill has some very nice fight scenes. It's a Game of Thrones of anime, though, so don't watch it if you get attached to characters.

    Hunter X Hunter is pretty much the God tier of fighting scenes.

    FMA Brotherhood has some good scenes, sames goes for Nanatsu no Taizai, Black Lagoon, Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, Kara no Kyoukai, Inuyasha, K, Magi.

    Any anime that's been animated by Ufotable is pure gold. Gintama, when they decide to do a serious arc, has some very good fights. Baccano has some serious beatdowns as well. Jojo's Bizarre Adventure has some reaaaally over the top stuff.

    Woops, I almost forgot: Hellsing Ultimate (no, seriously. Some of the most burtal, nightmarish shit)

    if you dont mind mecha genre i would recommend: Gundam build fighters.
    it has a lot of awesome fight scenes.

    Birdy the Mighty Decode has a few really well done fights, including one very well known one (the Superman movie Man of Steel actually copied certain scenes from that fight in the anime)

    Might not be what you're looking for though since it has a very 'loose' animation style.

    As others have said, Naruto has some good fights, but too much talk no jitsu. just hit youtube for the fights to avoid all the filler mess. Same with bleach. Samurai Champloo I've only seen a few episodes, but pretty good as well.
