Hi, hi! Welcome to day 19 of the Anime Challenge! Today’s topic is: Most Epic Scene Ever.
What defines an epic scene? My first thought was that it had to be a fight scene. I don’t feel that is right though. Any scene that has the ability to overpower any of the viewers emotions could be considered epic.
3 specific scenes come to my mind. This post will contain spoilers. You’ve been warned.
The first scene I thought of was from Sailor Moon R The Movie: Promise of the Rose.
I’m sure one of the reasons I thought of this first was nostalgia. However, I feel that this scene could be considered epic because of the power of friendship that is shown here and the risks Princess Serenity takes.
The next scene I thought of was another one dealing with friendship and risks. This one is a scene with Komari Kamikita from Little Busters!
Komari gave up her last wish to help her best friend in the whole world.
This is just one of the many scenes that made me love Komari so much. She was always there for her friends, she was always smiling. She kept the spiral of happiness going.
“Don’t cry Rin. Once, someone taught me to keep smiling till the very end. So I’m smiling now, even though you’re crying. I can’t go on with you. My story’s already over. But I want Rin to be able to smile. Let’s part with a smile, okay?”
The final scene I was reminded of was more of a battle scene. It’s a scene from Kyoukai no Kanata/Beyond the Boundary
This scene has so many elements that make it epic. There is an epic battle scene, there is sadness, there is happiness. I re-watched this scene before adding it to this post and even though I’ve seen it before, it still managed to make me cry again.
That is what I believe makes an epic scene. A scene that actually makes you feel.
What scene or scenes would you say are the most epic? Let me know here or on facebook!
