Street fighter without any controller
5 August 2019 | by FrenchEddieFelsonSee all my reviews

This anime looks basically like Street Fighter on Playstation. Put your controller aside and passively enjoy Homeric combats secretly organized by the CEO of huge Japanese companies. The atmosphere is fascinating and the fast-moving pace of this anime will incite you to see the episodes of the whole season, all in one piece. 6/7 of 10.
