My favorite anime is Yu-Gi-Oh 5D’s and here is my all-time favorite anime moment.
My level is still basic when it comes to Japanese grammar but I can finally understand some of the things they say and it’s just so satisfying to see all my work paying off. Also, understanding things in Japanese makes the moments x10 more epic, especially when you can repeat the sentences yourself.
Here is the video(without subtitles):
I tried to make a Japanese transcript of these 40 legendary seconds (1:20 - 2:00):
Note: I obviously helped myself with the English Subtitles from the anime…
不動遊星(Fudo Yusei)：シューティング・スター・ドラゴン？ “Shooting Star Dragon”…?
I am tuning my level eight synchro monster, Stardust Dragon to my level two synchro tuner, Formula Synchron!
What?! He’s synchro summoning during his opponent’s turn?!
Clustering crystal dreams open the door to a new evolution! Become the path its light shines upon!
If I had to choose then I’d say the flower field scene in Clannad: After Story episode 18.
Other contenders would be:
Squealers speech at the end of Shinseki Yori
“I can’t hear the fireworks” from the finale of the more recent Kaguya-sama: Love is War
Or any number of moments from the Monogatari series
Fujiwara Bunta telling Iketani to not die, because he (Bunta) is still not particularly sure WTF is going on. In the anime, it’s good, in the text, it’s even better.
It’s kind and hilarious and has every possible parenting of late teen sons emotion rolled up in it.
My favorite sad scene is a single pan of landscape to stars in the sky. When I saw the text version, it really struck me how extremely faithfully it was represented on screen.
I’ve only been watching anime for a short time. I started with first Gundam about a year ago, and since then have watched Gundam, and couple of other anime, non-stop! My favourite moment of all is impossible to say, but the death of Ramba Ral (“favourite”? well, you know what I mean) in first Gundam has to be right up there.
Although the absolute saddest moment is not the death of Ramba Ral, the saddest is the death of Miharu; that is truly heartbreaking. Too sad to post. Another great Gundam moment is the desert battle (and more deaths!) with Andy in Seed, but I’ve found that you really need to watch first Gundam first or else you can’t really appreciate anything that follows!
I have plenty of favorite anime moments, too many that I can’t even think of, but I know one, for sure, every time it happens, it fills me with an everlasting stroke of joy, making me want to see more.
If I had to pick my absolute favorite I’d be thinking all day but off the top of my head The Slap in Steins;Gate 0.
All is lost, history’s about to repeat itself, but then the Lab Mems’ mad perseverance finally pays off, Hacking to the Gate starts playing, and the name of the route is revealed confirming that the past has indeed been changed.
I loved that scene in the visual novel, but it blew my mind in the anime.
