This anime is more exciting than the first because it’s now more world wide and ranged with the locations and characters. It allows more variety than the first series which I will elaborate later.

The art is a much improved than the first oav. The designs are more sharper and the colors are brighter. The first oav tended to be a bit more circular with the designs but the designs are still up to date with their game counter parts. Like Terry’s sleeves on his jacket in the first oav and game were rolled up. While in this one, he cut off the sleeves. And read more

Now THIS is more like it! Fatal Fury 2: The New Battle is arguably the best video game/anime adaptation I've ever seen, at least of the fighting game perspective. What makes this one better than most fighting game offerings is that unlike Tekken and FF: Motion Picture, this stays very true to it's source. Wolfgang Krauser is bored, hears of Terry and various other strong opponents and holds a tournament.
A few things are tweaked in this OVA for the sake of creating a plot, such as the introduction of the Tony character. Inserting Tony is far more forgivable than saddling Terry with Lily read more

PROLOGUE
This one-series OVA is based on the old Fatal Fury beat-them-up game, which later became part of the King Of Fighters franchise. It is also the sequel to previous short OVA. The game was medium and this adaptation into anime is rather good.

ART SECTION: 6/10
Rather aged graphics and vivid colors are the trademark of the OVA. The characters look good and so do their movements. The action scenes are very reminiscent of old Chinese martial arts movies and there are several moves from the game in it that give a little treat to all those who played the game. The animation is not great in read more

This is the second movie in the triliogy. THis is alot better than the first. There are some cool scenes here but you will eventually get a little bored watching this, but at least its better than the first. The fatal fury series should be watched in english. Its one of these animes that are actually ok in dubbed:)

Recommendations

Street Fighter and Fatal Fury were both extremely important franchises to the development of the 2D fighting games in the early 90's. They also competed for the anime market at that time. Their best material was/is probably "Street Fighter II - The Movie" and "Fatal Fury 2 OVA".
