Not the anon you were arguing with but...
You're basically just saying that it comes down to what kind of action you prefer. And I agree, Macross' fights are awesome.
But so were Soul Eater's! I actually watched her first fight about 5 times and then tried to pause it frame for frame. The animation is superb and from what I can tell there are a ton of frames. Her footwork constantly changes, she spins the scythe in a ton of different directions and the camera moves around in a way that makes the fight seem really dynamic. All of this within a few seconds time.
I don't know that the rest of Soul Eater's fights will be able to live up but the first one was really good.
