That is new right? Well there is mainly stuff with Ryu, Gouki(which appears to be his ENGLISH name as well) and shows some Sakura and a bit of Ken.

I am not really digging those character designs. Is it me or does it look like that Ryu is wearing a MOTW Terry stlye jacket?

Artwork kind of looks similar to that anime Akira if I'm not mistaken, slightly but thats my guess. But yeah thats a MOTW jacket bomber jacket for you, feathers on the neck and all. I haven't heard of this anime but a couple of my friends had told me about it but I suppose this is it.

Kind of makes the old SF ALpha movie made a bit pointless but hopefully this will be alright.

The more I hear and see of this new Anime the less I like it. I've heard really bad things about the story. It's shaping up to be the worst SF Anime ever if you go by what's being said on the net.

Character designs are strange, remind me of Paronoia Agent for some reason. I can take it or leave it.

But those CGI effects are just so bad IMHO. Maybe on the big screen it will look better.

Still I'm anxious to check it out for myself. Who knows, maybe I'll like the final product.

Yes even on the dub Gouki is called Gouki throughout the movie.

Reviewers haven't seen it yet. So unless you want links to what people at Evo said about it at SRK there's no such thing at this time. Wait until it's closer to coming out (October 25) or a bit after for reviews and stuff.

OH MY FUCKING GOD! Well Sano, I bet this is what there's thinking right now..."Oops, we fucked it again!"
First Devil May Cry, now this; but this is infinitely worse, because this is anime, and we all know it's always bad when someone fucks anime.And I even was interested to see this shit, but it's clear that I'll wait a little longer for some new cool anime, besides of course what I already got.
In closing, one question...why these dicks didn't learn the lesson with Devil May Cry(ditching the original development team for the sequel, and that so nearly killed not just a game, but a franchise), but now they have in their hands what may be the greatest anime disaster in history?

Errr... when they ditched the Onimusha 1 cast for Onimusha 2 that worked out fine but Capcom themselves(Capcom doesn't make Anime themselves, just games) are not making this Anime, Manga video is and last time they ditched the cast of the SF2 Animated Movie and SF2V for the SFZ cast it worked out fine so they were going along with that scenario most likely, or the people involved in the first one went on to work on something else. It's sort of the problem when you deal with big names.

I think they put in a new video with finished footage. The fight scenes look all right. The character designs and style don't impress me. But we'll see. Superficial looks don't look good. But it doesn't look totally hopeless. I know I'll buy it for sure. SF Alpha was okay.

Short preview of issue 0 from Street Fighter II. I can't put my finger on it, but something about that art or coloring on the first page is very unique and I like it.

But what is up with anorexic Ken and Ryu on page two?

In their own minds, Ken and Ryu think they're fat. In order to fight their fatness, they stick their fingers down their own throats after each meal and <BAM> you get what you see today. In all for the sake of training. [/sarcasm]

But seriously, the "anorexic" versions of Ryu and Ken are just showiung the early adolescent years of their training together. [/seriousness]

I don't understand. Where's all the negativity coming from exactly? Looks pretty badass animation wise. It'll probably be fun in the context of what Street Fighter is.

Is this just another aspect of the mmcafe crowd going LOL WE'RE BADASS AND CYNICAL or what?

I just don't really get the big deal. I'm a big fan of Street Fighter, but there are still certain limits to how seriously I actually have to take it to enjoy it.

I guess people is waiting for an anime that follows the SF storyline 100% (even though not even Capcom can do that anymore), that's why they always will end up disappointed.
I love the SF II anime movie, but it has many flaws.

-The characters were way too muscley, big bodies with tiny heads. I think only Chun Li was proportionated.

-The plot was way too simple (this is not the fault of the writers, but from the game itself). Some aspects of the plot were never expanded, like the roles of the Shadaloo lords inside the organization, props to them for showing Balrog running a casino though; this showed how Shadaloo not only relied on drug trafficking to sustain itself, but also relied on legit business.

Besides that, the animation and fighting scenes were kickass.
I say the more Street Fighter products, the better.

I actually think this anime may answer that question. I really don't know that much about this anime except what I've seen in the trailer but...

It has three generations of martial artists that practice the 'hadou' martial art. Its called street fighter alpha generations. Perhaps its going to be about how the 'hadou' martial art is being practiced across a group of individuals, across ages and time periods? It will explore their ideas, philosophies about "Hadou" and how "Hadou" has affected them? I think thats a damn good premise to write a story.

If you really want to take a message from Street Fighter, all you have to do is look at how practicing martial arts has affected each of the main characters.

Its consumed Gouki, making him amoral, selfish and removed from humanity. In a way Ryu is almost to that point because even he doesn't want to take up an apprentice and is utterly consumed with the perfection of his skills and the meaning of fighting-- both ultimately selfish concerns. Its a distraction for Ken from his life as a family man. Its also a distraction for Sakura.

This anime could be very interesting or it could simply de-evolve into the simple and expected but fun plot dynamics we get in our usual SF Alpha Endings. Example:

"You killed my master!"
"Will you be my apprentice?"
"C'mon Ryu, we'll train some more and then we'll really have our best fight yet."

We'll see what this movie does in less then two months. Release date: 10.25.05

Wow... I never payed Street Fighter enough attention to even realize that. I'd also like to know whether Capcom ever did the same...

I'd dare to say that your "example" is the only way an Street Fighter anime can follow, so I'm not really expecting anything better...

BTW, I never thought an animeish Ryu could suck so hard (and not to mention Sakura), but I find the designs appropiate in some way : they are supposed to be tough martial artists, so it's kinda logical to have those disfigured faces of theirs, and about Sakura... well, I can't imagine a girl capable of training with Ryu without being a damned she-man...

Some artists take things in their own directions, but for the most part, I don't recall anyone pretending a great deal of the Street Fighter characters were particularly pretty, outside of the few pretty-boys and of course fan service.

Still, besides the truly inhuman Gouki, it just looks like a cool, rough, style to me. It's not really a matter of "ugly" or not.

You have to understand, that most of our MMCafe friends salivate at the mere mention of "moe", "cute" and "loli". I think they like pretty boys and girls in their games, that's why most of them think the characters are ugly if they're not young fragile cute fags.

It's not a question of pretty boys and girls.
The street Fighter characters are not developped nor well dressed enough to interest any of the Kool Kids mafia around here, beside Karin.

The Karin thing fascinates me. I sorta see it, but she doesn't seem to be quite popping from the screen there. Maybe for Street Fighter, but jeez. I guess it's gotta be the subtle classyness. Plus, few can pull off that laugh as well as her.

What the hell is she doing in SF anyway?

"Wave Motion" = "Hadou" according to most SF translators I think. Its just the 'official' name Capcom Japan finally gave to Ryu/Ken/Akuma's martial art after Evil Ryu appeared in SFA2. Evil Ryu's martial art/fighting style was called "satsui no hadou" I think. Roughly translated to be, "wave motion of murderous intent" or something like that.

I'll get corrected soon enough if my explanation is faulty.

AFAIK, Capcom Japan hadn't given Ryu/Ken an official martial art until that SFA2 thing happened. In the US it was always shotokan.

Actually, Capcom Japan sometimes called Ryu/Ken's art, "Anastuken" (sp?). Which was 'assassin style" martial art I think. But that got phased out for 'hadou' I think.

Still doesn't matter. Its all a mess.

usually i'll try to enjoy any animated sf feature, but this looks fucking terrible.

gouki looks more like a sasquatch than his normal self, and the effects look like low grade early 90s fare. hopefully the story overshadows the horrible art style(if the story is even worth two shits, that is)

Well, I remember it translating directly to "wave motion", but that's not what I meant.

I was thinking along the lines of "What does freedom mean to me?", which is something you might be assigned as a fourth grade essay topic.

'Hadou' means different things to different people. To some, it means real ultimate power. To others, it is a natural energy source. But to me, it means the pursuit and embodiment of my fighting spirit, as well as my repressed sexual energy that comes from my celibate life of wandering the earth looking for worthy challengers. Real 'hadou' comes from the heart first, and the fist second. It also may come from the diaphram, but that could just be my spleen.

Yes, perhaps 'hadou' comes from the spleen...


Plus it's a line from the Simpsons, one of the few good lines in the recent (last several years I mean).
