    Attack move name yelling ( why say it every time you do it )

    ok i just recently watched an episode of inu yasha again after a long time.
    and i just now noticed how annoying it is that every time they do an attack
    they scream out the name of it , like for an exampel every inu yasha attacks
    he screams iron reaver soul stealer ( yes i watched the english version )
    and its nothing more than using his claws .
    or in this episode some guy was trying to restore a dubbel bladed sword
    that was cut in half , and evertime someone mentiond the sword may it be
    the lower half or the upper half they mention the full name which is like a
    4 word name , i mean if you say it just once i get it im not so forgetfull
    that you have to say it 7 times in 20 minutes

    and it is not just in inu yasha it happens in so many anime's
    they do the same move 10 times in an episode and every time
    they scream out the name , like it doesnt work without screaming its name
    its not a spell or something

    am i the onlyone who just gets really annoyed by this or not
    id like to know if more people get annoyed by it and also which series


    thanks a mill Naruto1988 for the sig

    If that's not enough try watching DBZ, or Gundam. I guess it has to do with the part of the attack or in case with DBZ or Naruto or Beyblade, maybe it has to do with the "awakening" of power?

    Grumble Grumble Grumble

    Fighting and 'Giant Robot' inherit this attack name calling from the Samurai and Martial Artist drama series, where the proponent calls out the attack solely to attempt to impress his opponent, and further the reputation of the dojo that he's from...

    And since this is the 'tradition' for the genre, you'll just have to learn to live with it...

    @ rave with dbz it doesnt annoy me so much since its only the "strong" energy beams that they give a name thank god they dont give a name to every punch (uness you count gotenks =.= ) , never seen gundam but i was gonna borrow gundam seed destiny from a friend of mine to see if i like it
    so thanks for the warning


    @ len , i see i never knew that though it sounds pretty weird

    So everytime they call out their attack is to make it like more well knowed or something like that.(Since in gundam, I think any of them are not from a dojo.)

    In the case of 'Gundam' and other Giant Robot series, its more to impress kiddies and Otaku fans to purchase those model kits and collect all the accessories for them...

    Sometimes the fights are done well enough that you don't notice the name yelling. Most don't mind in Naruto since they put 'jutsu' at the end of it. As if it makes a giant difference. People always talk about how terrible anime would be if americans started producing it. I think if Americans did it then there would be less of a chance of the name yellling.

    The fighting in anime is just for entertainment purposes. Can you imagine a real life martial artist going around yelling out the name of his technique like they do in period dramas? "You contered the technique I just told you I was going to do impossible."

    For example I was watching bleach and Ichigo's opponent used the same attack like 5 times in a row and then in the end he was surprised that he countered his technique. WTF?!?!
    Grappler Baki got tackled and he was getting beat down but then his opponent jumped off of him.
