When it comes down to action, it’s probably all about the different battle sequences within the show. This combined with the animation style will allow for the sequences to flow well along with a lot of explosiveness and many exciting and exhilarating scenes. This year, the action genre gave us a bunch of anime filled with lots of explosions & blood. With a lot of the battles using mechanical type weapons, this resulted in a lot of the battles using either some kind of bullets or lasers. With that being said:
Deirii Raifu’s Pick:
God Eater – ‘Monster Hunter’
“There is no hope”
With humanity at the brink of extinction and fighting to take back their planet from the monsters which inhabit it, created a premise well known to anime. God Eater, takes it and envelops it with action between the “God Eaters” and the Aragami. It doesn’t spare the details, with blood flying everywhere and limbs being torn off, God Eater, does well in its raw battle sequences where it isn’t also shying away from death any time soon.
