When Honda fights Balrog there is a scene where they grapple and role off the cliff. It switches back and forth from a close-up shot and a far shot, in the close-ups they are rolling and touching the rock surface but in the far shots they are free falling a couple of feet from the rock surface.

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!!!
