Default Street Fighter - Assassin's Fist (WEB SERIES)

Peace. I was just wondering if anyone else here has started watching the Street Fighter AF web series.

It's really good! Im already jonesin' for more.

I like that it plays out as individual episodes rather than a "movie"
kind of reminds me of an anime or something with its chapters..

If you're not hip to this yet, enjoy (and discuss?)

Peace.

Yup, like the reference to Dan & Gen .
& their nods to Capcom and Megaman lol

I think they made an absolute hit -
Stayed true to the story line,
Even explained how Ryu got his red headband..
lol . I really hope they keep going. Forever.

It's so good. It's always tough to cast a Ryu tho.
But I feel the actors all of the characters justice

Oh, didn't see that there was a thread for this.

I've watched the first 3 episodes so far, and I really like what I've seen. While a lot of people would probably tend to say "who cares about the story in Street Fighter", I think it's super neat that the folks behind this stayed true to the Street Fighter lore and showed the series a lot of respect. Certainly something to be admired, and other game adaptations should take note.

I hope to watch to rest soon, and perhaps see another season in the future. I know I'd at least like to see other characters show up as well, though some of the ones with more extravagant fight styles might be difficult. But, I mean, if they stay as faithful with them as they did with the characters here, then I'm sure there's nothing to worry about.

As a fan of SF, capcom, and martial arts, I really enjoy this. Casting is good and the martial arts that are demonstrated are choreographed really nicely. Hope there will be a lot more episodes.

Mortal kombat legacy is pretty good. wonder what else they could do. I'd imagine a king of fighters or dead or alive.

Yep, same, grew up on SF. I remember how revolutionary SF2 was in the arcade scene and - 'putting my quarter up' to call next game.

Also, Guiles "handcuffs" were no punk. lol

When SF2 came out for SNES - my mind was blown. There were lines to play the demo at Babbages. lol I mean, gamestop.

--- and a proper Tekken done in this style would be daupe

KoF and DOA aren't particularly popular (in the US relative to the others), but Tekken seems to be the next logical step if they want to explore other fighting game series.

Yeah that's the one I was forgetting. Tekken would be cool too
