Bison, the ruthless leader of the international terrorist organization Shadowlaw, has been desperately searching for the greatest fighter on the planet for years. He finds it in Ryu, a young wanderer who never stays in one place long enough for Bison to find him. He does, however, get a fix on Ken Masters, an American martial arts champion who studied with Ryu as a child under the same master. Meanwhile, Major Guile of the United States Army is forced to team up with Chun Li from China in hopes of apprehending Bison and putting a stop his international ring of crime. Written by

In the American version of this film, in the scene where Chun-Li is briefing her Interpol superior, profiles of Sagat, Balrog and Vega are shown. In Vega's profile, under the name section, it is written "VEGA" but under the comments section, Vega is referred to as "Balrog." This is because "Balrog" is the actual name of the character that is known as "Vega" to American audiences. In Japan, Vega is known as "Balrog," Balrog is known as "M. Bison" or "Mike Bison," and M. Bison is known as "Vega." What the characters are called by in Japan are the original, actual names for the characters in the Street Fighter franchise. When editing this film for American audiences, the editors successfully changed Vega's profile so that "VEGA" appeared in the name section instead of "BALROG" but missed making the same edit in the comments section of the profile.

So it happened...after playing the huge number of video games and being disappointed in the utter rubbish Van Damme film which was an insult to cinema goers everywhere, manga entertainment released the anime... From the start, this anime just gets better and better, starting with a battle between Ryu and Sagat on a stormy night and finishing with one of the best anime fights you'll ever see and I won't spoil it either. It follows Ryu journeying the world and Ken, his sparring partner, searching for him to find out which of them is the greatest fighter. All the characters are here, even Cammy, Fei Long, Deejay and T-Hawk are there from the Super Streetfighter II game. All the trademark moves are there too to drool over and as most anime goes, the non-stop action can only be backed up by the leading lady Chun-Li's shower scene which I'm sure all the guys will enjoy (I did)! It's violent, the battles are the best you'll probably see and Bison's bum-chin is still hilarious. This is anime at its best!!!
