The week, your favorite Japanator editors let you know which famous anime battles get their adrenaline going, fists clenched, and showcase what we all crave. Epic battle sequences. Pull out the popcorn and prepare for a trip down memory lane. Don't see your anime being represented? Let us know your favorite scene the comments, and I'll do my best to post the most popular reader battle scene at the end of the week! 

Dale North - Angelic Layer Episode 26

"The final battle from Clamp's Angelic Layer where Misaki/Hikaru takes on her (spoiler) mom and annihilates her. It sounds brutal, but it's actually a frilly little 10 minute robot ballet set against falling rose petals. Mom does some damage, but the chants of Hikaru's followers and fans brings about a sprouting of wings...and goosebumps."
