The Future of Street Fighter Anime: Express your Opinion to Capcom

Since the first Street Fighter game, the Street Fighter franchise has always been tied with manga anime. Several Street Fighter Anime Projects have been released, with "SF4: the Ties that bind" been the latest.

Capcom has also been releasing a bunch of Anime shorts on the jpanaese SFIV webiste which have received great praise from both the western and Japanese audience, giving capcom hints that the world wants more Street Fighter anime.


But what does the future hold from the anime franchise? Will there be more Street Fighter anime in the future? A lot of fans hope so including myself. I personally believe it is time for Capcom to give us a long running good anime series based on the Street Fighter franchise.

I guess you can easily have 100 to 150 + episodes for a street fighter anime series. Too much potential there, I hope Capcom will invest in it and give us the best SF anime series to date.
Anime series like Naruto, bleach and others have brought the fighting anime genre back to life. A well made street fighter series will have both gamer and non gamer followers.


I would like also to mention that the storyline of the series will play a great role in its survival and success. For example Street fighter alpha movie had great animation and designs, but its story was rather weak (who is Shun?) compared to Street Fighter 2v series, which ironically did not have good animation nor good designs but a somewhat decent story.

I hope Capcom will consider story elements or full stories from Masahiko Nakahira's street fighter mangas as they were easily the best when it comes to story telling. Udon SF storyline is also a GREAT source material for such a project.


The last point I want to make is the character's design. Street fighter characters needs to have the look they have in the games. People need to see Ryu in the anime and say right away "hey it’s Ryu from Street Fighter". As I mentioned above Street Fighter 2v had a good story (not very street fighter like but still good) but the characters design were somewhat different (Ryu who in this case looks like Joe Higashi comes to mind).

To make yourself heard, go ahead and vote on the new Street Fighter anime pole; The results to the pole will be communicated directly to Capcom and hopefully we will get a new overdue Street Fighter Anime series.

Vote and comment and make your voice heard!

ps: There are two polls open about the anime on the left of the page. Please make sure to vote

I thought the designs in Street Fighter V was really cool. I didnt like the hair Ryu had at first but when I saw it again years later I was fine with it. I actually prefer that style. The only complaint I had was how they changed Charlie completely.

Holygriever said...

They didn't change it so much as made it first. SF II V aired in april 10, 1995, whereas SF Alpha only debuted in june that same year. It debuted before the episode in which Charlie appeared, yeah, but they probably already had all the designs approved beforehand.

I just want an official anime series following the Street Fighter canon. The series could have a really good plot but Capcom doesn't really put too much effort on the story. Which I'm not really complaining since the gameplay is great.

I can´t seem to vote on the polls. But yeah, I´d like to see more SF anime, as long as it´s done properly.

I want another street fighter anime as none have done any justice for me because most fall into the predictable good vs evil category AND Pleaaaassee stop with the Evil Hadou or Evil Ryu story line. It is done and its overplayed and is plain LAZEEEYYY. How about a storyline where Gouken is evil like Akuma in some ways? How Ken's son growing up and being an up and coming competitor? Something different and with depth please.

Alpha started off well for me but no good akuma vs ryu battle made it a tease and evil ryu storyline killed it for me. Overall the Street Fighter 2 the animated movie has been the most polished.

I pray we can have something like the Street Fighter IV intro in terms of style and animation but if budget isn't high enough for it then i think the animation in Alpha anime and even the SF4 cutscenes are good enough.

Gamer K said...

Wait, wait wait! Alpha had great animation? SF2v had a good story? They both were terrible. Alpha looked like fan art in motion and SF2v played out like DBZ. Ohh and the new SF4 anime blows. Sure it has better animation then SF2v or Alpha but doesnt compair to SF2 the anime movie. If Capcom is listening they should do one o two things. Make SF anime like the anime movie or like the Udon comics. I dont want a DBZ series. DBZ, Naruto, Bleach all are boring, badly written and go on way too long. Just give me animated movies with gold quality anime.

i never got the chance to see street fighter II V but i might see if i can find it now.

i totally agree about an anime being based on Masahiko Nakahira's work. that stuff is awesome to read. but it wouldn't be that long i guess.

After watching the latest SF4 anime clip at SF4 japanese official site, I would say that the character design was way too clean and simple. Just like they are lazy to add some more detail to the character. Check out the scene where Tomoi boy (Sagat) doing the super move inside the forest, cant you see the simpleness? Lazy to draw huh? Duh..

For me the the SF2 animated movie has the best character design, follow up by SF Zero, SF2V, SF4 and lastly the SF cartoon (America version). I just dislike the repeating fighting scene in SF2V.

AFAIK, the SF2 anime movie was drawn by Capcom staff (Correct me if I'm wrong). For an anime movie, they should be drawn at its best since its just 1 episode. Then for anime with many episodes, that clean and simple drawing is yes, acceptable, at least for me.

Also since Street Fighter is a fighting theme anime, they should be made like a serious theme anime. Or should I say, not for underage kiddy. I hope that Capcom can make the anime with the quality of SF2 animated movie and they should also focused not just on the only popular characters (Ryu, Ken & Chun Li)

I really, really enjoyed this. The humor works brilliantly, and the animation is much better than I had imagined. The way you have “blended” (hehe) it all together makes this look like a solid, whole product, as good as any Pixar short. Probably better. But then again: That’s my opinion.
