    Out of the ones I've seen the one I currently think is the best is Avatar. It has a creative, varied and entertaining set of powers, with bending types are not too far removed from each other in capability, they all can be countered.

    I did enjoy Naruto battles the most. Power levels matter less than tricks, nerve and personality.

    For example the Gaara's fight with Deidara. It was by far the biggest fight we'd seen in the series at the time. With incredible speed and offense against defence and stamina. But it was settled with the clever trick of concealing explosives in Gaara's absolute defence. It was all surprising and creative but in-character and based on established abilities.

    Naruto had cool battles but mostly when it was Gai/Lee or Taijutsu matches. There are, of course, epic battles like Pain vs Jiraiya and Sasuke vs Deidara. However, all went down when Kishimoto decided to give everybody a Power Ranger Megazord to be relevant or upgraded the eyes to win battles for you without having to move.

    So... Avatar for me. Naruto, before MS/Rinnegan/PS/SS and stuff like that was a tough contender. I also have to add Dragon Ball because Ultra Instinct was extremely awesome.

    Avatar is neither manga nor anime so I won't count it.

    Naruto definetely. It has hand to hand, magic, mind fucking... It's good.

    Ohh, right. Then... Naruto pre EMS and Megazords (or likely Dragon Ball Z) unless I remember an anime that I am missing out. I have not seen many anyway.

    In the Megazord era, Dragon Ball kicks Naruto's ass in fighting scenes.

    HxH by far. Naruto had a good system which was forsaken by the author once he realized that power levels would need to grow far beyond the initial setup, which was handled badly. It happened a bit after the TS.
