- what the hell was up with those blue dots coming out when Ryu & Akuma fight
- what was up with fireballs being thrown around like dragonball
- who the heck was the old man? Is it the same dude that was in Street Fighter V for 1 episode when Ken Ryu & Chun Li go Shopping?
- why was ken even in it for all of 3 mins
- why are japan taking a step back with this lame animation that even i can do better than - you look at Ghost in the shell 2 animation and then street fighter alpha generations and you think oh my god!
Believe me when i say rent this rather than buy,
And for the guy giving this 5 stars, you obviously was excited as me before the release date.
The artwork and animation is very substandard for an anime, and can't even come close to comparing to SF Alpha the movie. In fact, when I first saw Ryu, I wasn't even sure if it was Ryu that I was looking at. I quickly picked up that it was him based on his actions, but I should be able to tell who Ryu is right away, considering how much I love SF plus he is my favorite character. I don't understand why the animators changed the character design from SF Alpha the movie, especially considering that this is SF ALPHA Generations. SF Alpha the movie had very good character art, and the characters looked nearly identical to their video game counterparts. Akuma* looked much more menacing in Street Fighter Alpha the movie.
Another weakness in this anime is that it revolves nearly exclusively around Ryu and Akuma. The only other Alpha characters that are in this are Sakura and Ken. And even though Ken is a very important character in the SF universe, he has a smaller role than Sakura does... in fact, his role is so small, it might as well just be a glorified cameo appearance.
Not to give away any details, but Ryu is encountered by a mysterious old man who challenges Ryu to a fight. Ryu is defeated rather easily... and only one question comes to mind at this point, "If Ryu can't even defeat this old man, then how in the world is he supposed to take on Akuma, the most powerful character in the SF universe?Read more ›
I keep forgetting Ken was in this; he doesn't DO anything except react and make comments I'm sure are pithy in Japan.
There was so little fighting in an anime based off a fighting game. There's just NO excuse. I actually started hitting FWRD on my DVD player to see if anything actually happened!
Tekken the Movie was better than this, and read my review of THAT to see what I mean. Only Amazon's rating system prevents me from giving this NEGATIVE stars.
