    I noticed this a while ago but never really questioned it until semi-recently. A couple months ago I was rewatching FMAB and like every fight, someone gets a schmack then they just start gushing eye and mouth blood. It's so strange to me, I'll never understand it.

    It is probably something of a trope at this point or at least lazy animation. That said do an image search for boxing bleeding. It tends not to be eyes as much as the ridge above or below it, there is also a reason one has a mouth guard when engaged in such activities.

    I mean yeah I've been in a lot of fights so I get that. Honestly I've got no complaint, it's just fun to laugh at, like imagine my mom pulls my ear because she's mad and whoops, my fuckin eyes are bleeding.

    Maybe try turning on the subtitles or switching to the English dub next time.
