Uggh I thought Kekkaishi was ok. The one thing that bothered me about the fight scenes is the "KETSU KETSU KETSU METSU METSU METSU" that had to be continuely shouted.

Later on they tone that down, as well as start using a lot more unique ways of using their abilities. The manga is still going strong and is pretty cool too.

I'd also like to add in I like well-choreographed fight scenes...

That's one of the reasons why I like the scenes from Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, and Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, is because the animation is smooth and the scenes don't look overdone...Samurai Champloo just has too much detail to take in, but at the same time, that's what makes it amazing and enjoyable...And in GitS:SAC the tactics used in the show are pretty similar to the same kind of tactics one might find in the police or military, so it's not far-fetched...

And although it's a rarity in shounen titles, I can still find some well-choreographed scenes that caught my eye that aren't as over-the-top as they normally would, like in Bleach, the first battle between Ichigo and Renji, and the battle between Gin and Toshiro...

Delightfully complex and inhuman combat is a real plus for me. The opening sequence from Karas comes to mind. I have no particular preference to the style or realism, regarding the fight is carefully considered.

Epic fights are my favourite. Ones in which the character really, really wants to get revenge by taking the life of his opponent, et cetera. Also, fights where there is a lot of shouting and amazing music to go with it, maybe with added in flashbacks half-way through the duel, they are also great.

I would have to say those that are realistic or well choreographed; things like the energy balls from Dragonball or fights where limbs are blurred to emphasise speed are cheesy to me.

Fights that make cocky characters (without the skills) shut up.

I liked the battles in burst angel, though to much gun battles

Uhh i forgot the name but it was sh-something no shana and i liked the fighting in that(was a mix of magic and swords etc)

Other then that, DBZ fights were super lame same as naruto and most ive seen.

Also i hate i dont mind constant fighting but every anime needs one or two epic battles

my fav would probably be sword fights, if they can execute them right. like alot of claymore fights, some bleach fights, and some OP fights.

second probably hand to hand combat like OP style.

and third would have to be mecha fights, though sometimes mecha fights can be tops when they are completely awsome

I like when relatives fight, like Sesshomaru and Inuyasha. That whole family feud thing is one of the things that kept me in that show right up until it ended.

Sword fights most definitely. I don't enjoy gun fights alot. Too common in movies. I like magic battles too. ^^

My favorite is fighting with any melee weapon (Sword, Daggers, Fists, etc.) that is well choreographed, hardly or no talking during the fights (COUGH Naruto/Bleach/etc. COUGH), smooth animation, and epicness.
My favorite fights at the moment are probably the ones from Sword of the Stranger (ending is just... holy shit), Seirei no Moribito (I loved the scene in which Jiguro threw snow at the other guy XD), and Cowboy Bebop.

Mecha fights are awesome when done well. Major turn offs are just a ton of shooting coming out of nowhere from one mecha (which occurs very often in many Series), overpowered mechas, and enemies communicating somehow between the mechas. Macross series (excluding the Mecha Orgies from Frontier) are pretty well done when focusing on two specific fighters.

Guns is a bit hard to do in my opinion, so I do not complain much about them.

I'm still waiting to find it in an anime but as I wrote in a story of mine about two soldiers having a gunfight in a cafeteria:

A subtle silence engulfed the room.

Only to be suddenly broken by the hollow thud of an empty magazine falling to the ground, followed by the rustling of combat webbing and the distinct “click-clack” of a fresh magazine being locked into place.

Then the firing resumed.

There was no fancy gunplay. No gravity defying acrobatic maneuvers.

Just two professional soldiers out to kill each other as efficiently as possible.
So you can see I want to see modern warfare sort of fight scenes with gunfights being fought in a realistic manner.

The fight scenes where characters die (preferably non discardable vilain ones) are the best, statistically.

I don't care if they are realistic, as long as they are entertaining. If I wanted realistic stuff, I wouldn't be watching anime, but MMA. I can't remember a action anime with realistic battles.

Mechas would be stupid in real life, for example.

That said, I like stuff with hot girls.

The only problem with gun fights in anime is that there aren't enough of them, and what there is, only a little are actual quality and not some disproportional fluff that have gun fights just to have a gun fight...

I wish there were more "Ghost in the Shell" type stuff with maybe some Tom Clancy influence in them...

Anything that doesn't last more than a few seconds. Two or three minutes, tops.

Seriously. I fell asleep on Star Wars Episode III on the supposedly high point of the movie (Anakin vs Obi-Wan). Fights aren't supposed to last more than a couple of seconds. Then again, the movie was pretty much crap in almost all aspects, so perhaps it wasn't just the stupidly long-drawn fight that made me sleepy.

Another thing I hate: stupidly long and unrealistic expositions in the middle of a fight. See Soul Eater for an almost nauseating example.

anything mecha pertty much sucks
Uuhh, right. That's a cool opinion though! Reminds me of people who say any kind of animation is pretty much child's stuff... sound familiar?

(And I'm not even a mecha fan).
