Hunter x Hunter: Netero vs. Meruem was sure awesome!
Araragi vs Kanbaru was hardly a fight at all.
One of my favourite fights in Anime is probably Rock Lee vs. Gaara in the Chuunin-exams. Naruto has alot of great great fights though, especially the ones which are mostly physical, instead of with special powers and such. The Chun-Li vs Vega fight in the Street Fighter 2 anime-movie is amazing as well.
+1 for the HXH fight, tho to the person who wrote it, many won't know what a Miniature Rose is.
Only battle that deserves to be in top 5 there is HxH one IMO. Claymore, Psycho-Pass, Yu Yu Hakusho, Cowboy Bebop, Tenjou Tenge, Hajime no Ippo, Rurouni Kenshin, Attack on Titan, Gintama, Dragon Ball, Bleach, Samurai Champloo. Hell there's a sh*t ton of anime with awesome battles, some battles way more awesome than these (except HxH xD), IMO.
Funny how they're all modern anime. When I think of the best, more memorable anime battles, I think of things like Turn A Gundam, Twelve Kingdoms, VOTOMs, Gineiden, Gundam 0080, Patlabor, Lupin, Macross, etc., etc. The more recent stuff may have better, more fluid animation... but what makes a battle or fight interesting generally has less to do with the actual battle scene itself, and more to do with its context.
