30 Day Anime Challenge – Day 27: The Coolest Scene for an Anime Character

Hello, Anifriends

For day 27 of the 30 Day Anime Challenge, I’ll be talking about the most badass scene for any anime character ever.


There are a lot of ways in which you could define what makes something badass/cool for a given character. For this category, however, I think part of what makes a scene cool for a given character is how it reflects there personality, while also highlighting other parts of them that make them cool.

Under that definition, the coolest scene from an anime character is by far the opening scene of Soul Eater with Maka and Soul.

Not only do Maka and Soul both look awesome in this scene, but a lot of the initial appeal of the show is set up in this opening. The show opens with Maka and Soul doing there work as students of the Death Weapon Meister Academy: hunting down humans who have turned evil, known as Kishins, and collecting their souls so that they can create a Death Scythe. A Death Scythe is created when a regular scythe consumes the souls of 99 Kishins and one witch.

Soul is able to show off how badass of a weapon he is when he transforms to fight the Kishin, and Maka is able to show off her skills as a meister while using Soul to fight. Both of them look absolutely incredible.

The scene also displays a lot of their personality as well. At the end of the fight with the Kishin, the two go from their completely serious Kishin hunting selves to the totally unserious goofballs that is present throughout a lot of the series. Definitely a 10/10 opening scene from any show.
