Can't Believe I waited so long for this!!!!! a complete let down,
This review is from: Street Fighter Alpha - Generations (DVD)
Having been a street fighter fan for some time collecting comics DVDs and nearly all the games whilst never once complaining - i guess it finally had to happen! this was the most disappointing street fighter of them all. Instead of continuing from street fighter alpha to street fighter alpha 2 we are presented with a 45 minute piece of trash prequel which is obviously not aimed at any street fighter fan. The animation is the worst I have ever seen from Japan and I am disappointed i will have to add it to my manga collection. The story does not also seem to be sticking to the street fighter script with Ryu and Ken switching their personalities around and ken being the calm, concerned angry martial artist and ryu the one mucking around and goofing off. The fight scenes although are ok are brief - especially the intro with Gotesku and where was the fight with Gouken and Akuma?
- 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.

Out of all that there's only one question I can answer. The blue dots appearing when Gouki and Ryu fighting was a view into the past and present. The blue orbs were the good hadou, innocents being at peace and the good anatsetsuken fighters. The purple orbs however, was a view into the past events that caused the satsui no hadou (sloppy translation: evil intent, good translation: Intent to Kill), the malevolent, parasitic force that existed in the corrupted anatsetsuken. Those were ancient spirits evoked by the battle. Hope that helps, oh I didn't buy this or rent it, I saw it on TV :) and it wasn't good I agree.
