I was thinking long and hard about this one. What was I supposed to chose? The easy answer would be some fight scene from Shingeki no Kyojin or maybe something from Neon Genesis Evangelion. Fight scenes are always epic, right? But, I am not that into pure fighting anime. I like a good fight but I like it odd. I prefer a food fight before a fight with knives. So, then it hit me. My favorite music anime has one of the most epic, in my eyes, scenes I know.
Obviously there is spoilers below.
Bakumatsu Rock is an anime about rock being banned in Japan. Well, really all music is banned except for the music the government has approved of; the angel music performed by the Shinsengumi stars. The stars are admired by everybody, all over the town. But, there is someone who just want to play his own music. Rock n’ roll. So, he breaks the rules and finds two comrades who also have the rock in their blood and these three has little improvised concerts all over the city. The Shinsengumi of course chases them and tries to capture them and there is a whole lot to that story. All in all, the government’s goal is to brainwash the people into becoming obedient sheep with the angel music and they can’t have kids playing rock n’ roll, disturbing their plan.
In this epic scene the three guys have found out that their sensei have been corrupted by the government and are playing angel music too. (angel music doesn’t necessarily sound like something beautiful as you can hear when the little strange man on the stage play. The audience think it is amazing though.) Well, watch the video and see what happens. It’s got hot guys losing their shirts, two handsome men on a white horse, awesome music, fireworks and a guy dissipating into thin air.
