But unfortunately my fave character is not in it much, his name is Geese Howard and he is only in a few scenes. But that's a minor quibble.
The plot is about Terry Bogard falling in love with a girl named Sulia who's brother is wrecking havoc all over the world searching for a suit of armor that will make him a God. Sounds like something from an Indiana Jones movie but it works well and there's enough humor and pathos mixed in with all the mighty kicking-of-ass to keep others interested who do not like martial arts.
Of course the story could be stronger with more developments but at 95 minutes you'll be darned if you can find another animated movie or even live action that crams in so much adventure, color and light-hearted thrills into its running time.
I am a big fan of the series and of the entire Garou Densetsu/Fatal Fury franchise and I hope a sequel follows soon.
