    Nice! Assassin’s Fist was really good. I Hope they continue the series too. Messatsu!!

    • nakano

      I felt it was very generic and boring – watched about 6 episodes and dropped.

      • Kaitsu

        It’s pretty slow, but it gets there. Personally I found it to be great.

  • Janrabbit

    Meh, I found it fairly boring.

  • leingod

    The series was pretty cool… if you’re into the Street Fighter lore, that is. I’m glad it’s getting a theatrical showing. I’d go if I could!

  • The series was pretty good!

  • waku waku

    The series was really good, but I felt that Ryu’s story wasn’t developed that well compared to Ken. I mean, when the series ended, I didn’t actually look at Ryu and think to myself, “Yeah, this guy is going to strive to become the strongest warrior in the world.”

    • Brandon Coley

      True if you think about it they made you understand much more than ryu. But I mean how many times did they do a street fighter anything and did not use ryu storyline as the main theme. Ken all we know he was ryu friend and trained with him we never really see his struggle.

    The best Street Fighter live-action movie ever made !!

  • doubleO7

    Is this actually a licensed, officially-sanctioned series? I was under the impression that it was merely a short fan series, but now I see it getting theatrical screenings and home video releases and there were even rumors of it ending up on TV somewhere.

    • Piccoro

      This web series were actually FUNDED by Capcom.

      • doubleO7

        Interesting. I wasn’t aware of that.

      • Death Metal

        It was funded in a Kickstarter campaign. How did Capcom fund it and where did you see that info?

      • No, CAPCOM didn’t fund this, they only gave these guys the license to do it. Yoshinori Ono is also the executive producer for this.

    • TV versions will come out late this year or early next year. DVD/Blu-ray will come out this October.

  • Gojira Twit

    I’m curious what they will think of Ryu’s Japanese. I’m no native speaker but even I thought it sounded awkward.

  • Yan Zhao

    I was thoroughly impressed with this series. It’s amazing how these guys can nail it down this well with a small budget they made off kickstarter, as opposed to the millions Hollywood spends.

    The only thing that’s worse than games based on films is films based on games. Now go to your corner and hang your head in shame you wanna be street fighters you.

  • Ric Vazquez

    Better than the ultra crappy hollywood movies

    • Death Metal

      Please. There is no comparison to be made.
