    Need an anime to watch

    I've seen:

    One Piece
    Bleach
    Attack on Titan
    FMA: Brotherhood
    JOJO's Bizarre Adventures
    HunterxHunter
    DragonBall
    Naruto
    Baccano
    TTGL
    Samurai Champloo
    Toriko
    One Punch Man

    Preferably something with a decent emphasis on hand to hand combat.

    So I'm a little confused. Are there multiple Fate series?

    Yeah, it's much like comics that is has multiple universes and interpretations of events, however Zero can be said to play in the 'main timeline'.

    Zero concludes on his own however and can very well act as a self contained series, also it's a good starting point which is why I recommend it alot.

    I'd say without their captains the Whitebeards would be slightly stronger than the Red-Hairs and with their captains they'd be significantly stronger.

    It's pretty obvious no Emperor was a real threat to Whitebeard. He just had too much power and influence.

    Raigou apparently can't even destroy an island, which Whitebeard can do easily.

    Obviously it was because of Whitebeard, but the crew even without the captain is still highly exceptional. If you take away the captains, the Whitebeard's would beat any Emperor crew decisively.

    cowboy bebop - spike's jeet kune do
    darker than black - hei's amazing cqc skill
    hokuto no ken - martial arts anime
    fate series - lots of well animated fights

    can't imagine an anime with better h2h choreography than naruto. you'd do better to watch all the good naruto fights rather than watch a new anime.

    I've seen One Punch Man, I just forgot to list it in the OP. I'll check out the other two though.

    I am interested in the plot and everything too, I just really like when there's a healthy emphasis on hand to hand stuff. I'm a little bit of a martial art enthusiast.

    You liked One Punch Man. So you'll like Mob Psycho. Not that much H2H in it, but it's good.

    Also Kill la Kill.

    Yeah Mob Psycho is just as good as OPM. Same author. Mob is like the opposite of Saitama in a way since Saitama started off normal but wanted to be strong and Mob is strong but wants to be normal.

    I can't guarantee that you'll like Hataraku Maou-sama. There isn't much combat. It's mostly a comedy anime, but it's a short series and has a few extremely epic moments.

    Also you should try Tokyo Ghoul if you haven't already.

    Try Zatch/Gash bell if you haven't yet. It's one of my favorites.

    Try watching Nanatsu No Taizai. The animation is great for a Shonen series, the fanservice is good, and the action is fantastic. A lot of simplicity and action like you see in Dragon Ball too.

    Fate sounds like too big of a jump from what Pops has seen thus far.

    So I started Fate/Zero since Y was the first to get to me, but I'll get to the others too.

    Keep suggesting though, so I have a list.

    This one's a manga, but since I know you love martial arts stuff, I have to recommend Holyland. The author is clearly an expert since every fight is realistic and every technique use is explained correctly. Also each character has a different fighting style like boxing, karate, judo etc. and the MC learns from all of them to basically become a Japanese Batman.

    Seconded on GTO, it's great. Fate/Zero is amazing as well.

    Trigun as a manga and anime are both excellent. Hellsing also.

    I know you asked for shows with emphasis on action but there are some great series that you'd be missing on if you limited yourself.

    I don't like romance series at all and I still enjoyed Toradora a bunch.

    Non action series I'd still recommend:

    Toradora
    Spice and Wolf
    Clannad
