    Can someone message me an anime that's similar to d grayman or claymore or deathnote?

    Ive seen Deathnote, deadman wonderland, fairytale, shigurui, ao no exorcist, beelzebub, samurai champloo, code geass, devil may cry, Hakuouki, monster, blood plus, gantz. Basically, something with demons and gore.

    I don't usually watch too many martial arts films, but I'm quite a fan of Donnie Yen from the 'Ip Man' films. There's also Sammo Hung, who was the fight choreographer for 'Ip Man' many other martial arts films.
    And you know, there's also Jackie Chan.

    What are those Ip man films actually about? Jackie chan is ehh for me since he jokes around too much. I forgot to mention Sonny Chiba he is pretty cool too.

    "While many can pursue their dreams in solitude, other dreams are like great storms blowing hundreds, even thousands of dreams apart in their wake. Dreams breathe life into men and can cage them in suffering. Men live and die by their dreams. But long after they have been abandoned they still smolder deep in men's hearts. Some see nothing more than life and death. They are dead, for they have no dreams."

    The movies are about some periods in Ip Man's life, and how teaches and promotes martial arts...he was Bruce Lee's teacher btw



    Steven Segal is pretty cool too, he has a few movies I liked and he's a pretty good aikidoka from what I heard...

    Re: Best celebrity martial artists?

    Most of those celebrities are actual high-level martial artists.

    Jet Li woop the floor with everyone involved in Wushu.
    Chuck Norris is a 7-times world champion.
    Van Damme was a prospect in full-contact
    Bruce Lee is basically the father of MMA
    Seagal is a highly respected aikido master
    Even Mickey Rourke was a more than decent amateur boxer

    Basically, most of them were real beasts.

    Just for the fun of it, Jason statham was an olympic ... diver

    Re: Best celebrity martial artists?

    I'm really surprised not to see any mention of both Scott Adkins or Michael Jai White here. Not even in the link above. Both are well known actors with legit martial arts history.

    Check out this video to see a little of Scott in one of his films.



    The movie is called 'Undisputed 3' btw. Y'all should check it out if you haven't already seen it. It's awesome. Scott is a total beast.

    Funnily enough, Michael Jai White also plays a leading role in Undisputed 2 along with Scott adkins, so you should check that one out too. They're literally two of the only three people that come to mind when I think of best celebrity martial artists.....The other one being Jet Li of course.

    Ray Park aka Darth Maul aka Snake Eyes.

    Won all kinds of contests around the world, if I remember well. Aside from playing toad, he was also Christopher Walken's stunt double in Sleepy Hollow. That headless horseman had some mean moves.

    EDIT: Oh right, Mark Dacascos. Karate, Kung-fu, Capoeira...

    Re: Best celebrity martial artists?

    Jackie Chan, Jet Li, and Jason Statham are arguably the most popular celebrity martial artists today. However, it says best in the title, so I must cast my vote for Donnie Yen. Ip Man is incredible.
    My comic suggestions: Ecchi, Martial Arts, Historical, Harem, Adventure!
