3.0 out of 5 stars Better Than The Movie But Not Without Flaws Feb. 22 2003
This series is based on the hit video game. It's 29 episodes long and spans four DVDs. The first three DVDs contain seven episodes each, and the fourth DVD contains eight episodes. Unfortunately, the DVDs has few extras. There are some anime DVD previews, info on other titles, links to Internet sites, and a remix of the theme song. The fourth DVD has a trailer for "Street Fighter Alpha: The Movie", which is unrelated to the V ("Victory") series. Also, the DVDs (at least my copies, which I watch on my computer monitor) have an annoying flaw. Whenever the camera shot changes, the very top and very bottom of the screen has static or something. The DVDs are bilingual. The English dub is mostly accurate, but there are many differences in the dialogue. My advice is to watch it in Japanese with English subtitles first and then in English. Sometimes, I like to watch DVDs in English with English subtitles. It allows me to easily see the changes in dialogue. The "Street Fighter II V" DVDs don't give you that option, but I'm able to do it using the DVD Player program on my computer. One big problem that I have with the audio is that the theme song has been changed in the Japanese audio track as well. Never mess with the original audio track! As for the series itself, it's a lot better than the movie. There is room for a lot of characters. Blanka fans will be disappointed. He doesn't appear. The series takes some creative liberties, such as making Ken, Ryu, and Chun Li teenagers, but that's fine. The series is mostly about Ken and Ryu, but Chun Li is also developed nicely. Unfortunately, the final episode is mostly about Ken and Ryu's battle with Bison, leaving only a small amount of time for the ending. Several plots go unresolved. Spoilers Ahead. Does Chun Li's father survive, or does he die? Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Many improvements from the last disc... Jan. 27 2002
Some of the problems that I've been having with the first disc are here on this one, however, most of them are fixed, and the disc is not as glitchy as the other one. Also, the series itself really starts to pick up well, with some important factors...
The storyline also takes a few new interesting twists, but I won't state them here. The character development continues to shine, which is one of this series' shining points. Each of the characters has a separate personality, and it is shown in this disc.
I also noticed a big change in the music. The first volume had all synthesized music running in the background, but the second volume had some new music: all orchestrated. This is a very pleasant change, because now the dramatic scenes are more dramatic, and the battle scenes are more intense without thinking, "Geez, that music sounds so phony..."
However, I still would have liked the original opening theme, "Kaze Fuiteru" instead of the new opening that Manga placed. They even replaced the original Japanese version with this opening. This doesn't really make the series complete if the original opening isn't there...
But anyhow, I think this is a great disc. The plot moves very quickly, and if you're an anime fan who enjoys action-packed battle scenes, great music, and a generally exciting series, then this show is definately for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Entertaining April 24 2001
I bought volume #1 to try that out, and even tho I kinda liked it I just was not sure if it was worth purchasing. So I rented vol #2. The storyline picked up and basically all around the episodes got much better. The intro for Sagat and Dalsim were rather interesting, but really got me was the intro for Vega. Now that was pretty slick.
SF II V is not the best anime. I have seen much better. Even tho the music sounds Casio keyboardish, it does get my blood pumping enuff to train while the intro and ending credits are going off. This is really for the Street Fighter fans, I do not think a non-SF fan could like it but I could be wrong. I am biased so it is hard to see the other view. What can I say, I played a lot of SF as a kid. =D
The characters in this series are different than what you see in the movie because quite frankly this is in a time period before the movie. In fact, in this volume Ryu is searching to find out what Hadou (think fireball from the game) is.
I will not say much more than that so I do not ruin the surprise of you seeing the characters for yourself... ...except one more piece =P ...look for the red head in black, heh nice subtle cameo!

The middle portion of this series starts it getting interesting. Ryu starts learning the secrets of the Hado, and M. Bison is finally introduced into the picture. The episodes start flowing together much more as this series continues. I've liked Street fighter and watched all the incarnations of it being ported to video and this is my favorite one. My only reason for not giving it 5 stars is that the series tends to recycle the animation, using the same 3 punches over and over to represent the fights, and the fact that they used a lot of build up during the episodes and wasted a lot of time. I believe they were just trying to fill the half hour. But the story is solid and entertaining. Buy it if you like Street Fighter.
