The anime was literally used by the top animators in Japan as a challenge to reach the same quality as the manga version. Think on that for a moment.
Phenomenal animation and wild action, even at the very first episode showcasing Saitama facing off Subterraneans. - Mcgillacuddy
The best part about this series's action is its ability to make the fights whatever mood they need to be. While there are a decent amount of serious fights, such as Saitama vs. Lord Boros or Genos vs. Deep Sea King, it also has the ability to create fights that have a humorous value, while still being as badass & high-tension as the serious ones. Even if we all know Saitama's gonna win (easily), we still end up on the edge of our seats, excited to see how it plays out.
2 Afro Samurai
For a 2007 anime, Afro Samurai put graphic animation at its absolute best with millions of dollars spent on JUST the animation itself. It's very overlooked by many anime fans. Fight scenes are super bloody and insanely detailed that it keeps your eyes glued to the screen. When in doubt, rewatch the skydiving fight. - Mcgillacuddy
3 Black Rock Shooter
Insane action sequences and excellent animation with use of some CG. - Mcgillacuddy

A list of animes with the best fight scenes and DBZ isn't first? I'm surprised. - Goku02
This anime is the father of all fighting anime in my opinion.
5 Seirei No Moribito
Super-fast animation and very detailed combat sequences. - Mcgillacuddy

8 Hajime No Ippo
Every blow looks like the character put everything they had into it, and the impact animation is gorgeous. - Mcgillacuddy
They made a Fox face a Blind Man and it was still an exciting battle to see... - AnimeSportsFan619
10 Kill la Kill
Kill la Kill is an anime television series produced by Trigger. In Kill la Kill, Ryuko Matoi transfers to a new high school in order to find her father's murderer.
Kill la Kill is just animated insanity at its finest, and featured some of the most wild fight scenes you can find in an anime. - Mcgillacuddy
The first fight between Ryuko Matoi and Satsuki Kiryuin can only be described with one word: breathtaking. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
11 Hunter x Hunter

Fantastic fight scenes that are more about brain, than brawn and skill. Very clever and well animated, and you feel for each character involved in the fight.
Honestly better than One Punch Man (both series are animated by the same company)
12 Sword Art Online

Fight scenes in this series are very detailed and just look amazing. It really makes me wish that someday, there would be technology to actually play video games like this. - Mcgillacuddy
I loved how they used CGI really well to design The Skull Reaper. I mean, the way it moved was well-choreographed (its movement is quite similar to how the Aragami from God Eater moved) and the slashes from the party fighting it were vibrantly colorful and gorgeous. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
13 Naruto Shippuden
Naruto: Shippuden is the ongoing sequel to the original Naruto anime and covers the Naruto manga from volume twenty-eight on. The TV adaptation of Naruto: Shippuden debuted in Japan on February 15, 2007 on TV Tokyo. It is developed by Studio Pierrot and directed by Hayato Date.
Naruto shippuden are better than Naruto is

In my opinion, ufotable is the best animation studio for anime. And Fate/Zero is a prime example of ufotable's greatness in well-choreographed traditional and computer animation. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
