Magical Anime Girls Kicking Arse and Taking Names

As far as magical girl anime shows go, few have fights like this.

Pretty Cure is a long-running animated series aimed at children — primarily, little Japanese girls. And when people think about Pretty Cure, perhaps images of enormous eyes and transformation scenes pop in their heads.

Online in Japan, the silly size of Pretty Cure characters' eyes is a bit of a gag.

But! What people should think about is how friggin' awesome the fight scenes are. Just because these are magical girls, that doesn't mean they can't put the smack down! Recently, a series of GIFs were uploaded to 2ch to remind people of how much power these gals pack in their punches.

    Wow that actually looks pretty good.

    This post links to the crappy Dragon Ball Super animation and that makes me sad...

    You want epic, meaty impact fight scenes? watch Boruto the Movie, sweet baby jesus, saw it in theatre today and that sure was one hell of a send off to one of the greatest series of all time, the budget on that must have been crazy, it was just insane how cool the fights were.

      Yes, but you expect martial art fighting in Naruto. Other than Puella Magi Madoka Magica, and certainly not for a magical girl series aimed at little girls, would you find such physical fighting.

        I dunno, the Precure franchise has been running series back to back since it started in 2004 so it's twelve series in as well as nearly twenty films. It's probably the best-known of these sorts of shows nowadays and it's always had this sort of stuff going on (several of the GIFs here are from the original series).

    What people usually ignore or don't understand about the Magical Girl genre of anime is that it's pretty much the same stuff you'd find on a "shounen" story (such as Naruto or One Piece, only with girly trappings. The same kind of themes, the same kind of action and compelling storytelling... the main difference is that in one, the characters wear martial art suits or armour and in the other, they wear frilly dresses.

    the most frustrating thing about these gifs is seeing all the massive impacts from landing punches and kicks, and then the gif looping back to the beginning instead of showing us the impending damage on the opponent. except that last one, that was awesome.

    Hmm not bad i must say, i can definitely see some DBZ esque fights in a show like this, i can add it to my long list of anime shows to watch =P

    Woah really? That's arse kicking?

    The Magical Girl genre does fight much better than that with series like the Lyrical Nanoha series, and my favourite, the Symphogear series : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RMVIAN6hMVE
