I've been watching anime for a little over a decade now (holy fart nuggets I'm 24 and I feel old) and I always think back to the single episodes that still make me freak out. The goosebump inducing, cringe worthy, freak out amazement booyakasha episodes that make you want to watch that entire series over again.

Well lads and lasses unless you suck at critical thinking you've already guessed what this thread is about. Those single episodes that take all the marbles. I'll begin with a few (but no where near all) episodes that I love. (if the moments are actually features feel free to post anyways just put in the scene).

Yu Yu Hakasho ep 32 Yusuke vs Chu
This series in general is what got me hooked on the righteous flavor that is anime. But this episode.. BALLS. Knife edge death match, just fist to fist mayhem, slamming each other back and forth, the first one to drop loses. You can't move, you can't flinch, there is no running. I still say this is the best episode of the series hands down. I admit to sentimental value for it but when your 13 and staying up to 2 am to watch this series on adult swim every night, it kinda sticks and this episode was stickier than the rest.

Cowboy Bebop ep 20 Cicus fight (can't remember the ep name)
Dog shit tacos. Cowboy bebop has just waaaaayyy too many awesome episodes to list, however. This is the one that turned Spike into the ultimate badass for me. I could put this shit on repeat and never get sick of it. The crazy music, the ridiculous yet insanely badass enemy with that unforgettable laugh, that atmosphere of two people duking it out alone inside of an amusement park. It's just too much. The backstory fueling the confrontation in minutes instead of (I'm looking at you Naruto) episodes. And the first time watching this series you still have that feeling of, is he gunna lose this one? Is this the episode Spike doesn't walk away? There is just so much jam packed into the single ep even if you don't watch the series, just watch this one episode. It'll change how you feel about anime altogether.

These are just two of mine to get the ball rolling (forum rolling? thread rolling? There should be a word for this). So, let's hear yours lads and lasses. I want some kickass episodes to check out. (And honorable mention would be Gantz, however I'm not sure about the whole underage rules on here).
