Boundless Melodrama! Over-the-Top Anime Titles for Your Fic!!

So @Persephone was mentioning weird anime episode titles recently on the Discord, and I was reminded of @Chibi Pika's old anime titles thread on Serebii. Fun thread, let's bring it back!

Rename your fanfic's chapter titles in the style of an over-the-top shonen anime! You can see some examples here, but mostly you just need to lean into the cheese and the exclamation points. A pretty good formula is Super-excited statement or question!! Actual topic of the chapter?!

For my main chapterfic (not posted here yet), here are some upcoming chapters:

Chapter 37: Search for Haganeil! Have courage, hero!!
Chapter 38: Myuutsuu's anger! Goodbye Nate?!
Chapter 39: A stunning confession! Vs Kyō!

Anime movie titles can also be fun for one-shots. Super dramatic description of main character: main character's name. For the one-shot I posted recently, I like Genius Master of the Two Worlds: N
