Jeff Bogard was a master of the Hakkyokuseiken martial arts school and the guardian of its secret techniques. Coveting this knowledge, Geese Howard, the most powerful man in South Town, challenged and murdered him in front of his adoptive sons Terry and Andy Bogard. Under the guidance of their mentor Tung Fe Rue, the brothers dedicate their lives to training in the ultimate art to avenge their father.

10 years later, Geese promotes a martial arts tournament known as the King of Fighters. Terry and Andy join their friend Muay Thai champion Joe Higashi and enter the competition in order to finally face Geese in combat.

Well, this story is your typical “you killed my father and you must pay” kind of old school martial arts story, but brought more into a modern day context. After all, the story is a descent adaptation of the original material which the Street Fighter Zero anime fails to do and that’s what made that anime bad. I think the personalities of the characters that were previously featured in the games are well adapted as well. Terry despite his strength is a laid back kind of guy. While his brother Andy is more hot blooded. Joe is a party animal. So you really don’t need read more

Geese Howard is a wealthy martial artist and crime boss who operates in South Town. He plans a successful ambush to eliminate his martial arts rival Jeff Bogard. Jeffs two sons named Terry and Andy witness the murder along with their master Tung Fu Rue. On Tungs request, the two brothers leave South Town to learn and master their own style of martial arts, because they are no match for Geese due to their ages.

Ten years later, the brothers return to South Town and they reunite with Tung as promised. He informs them that he will teach only one of them a secret technique read more

Alright, So I found this movie out of a book of 500 essential Animes and I don't think it's really essential to anyone. As to not give any spoilers here's what I'll say: The entire story was done in forty minutes, obviously not a whole lot of time to much with. As it would be expected the story was rushed, the characters surface, and much of the battling was short and to the point.

However, I found this Anime to be fantastically enjoyable not as an action film, but as a comedy. Much of the fighting was over the top, the deaths were extremely read more

Why is Andy's hair blue!?! Er, sorry I got ahead of myself. Fatal Fury: Legend of the Hungry Man is the first of the trio of FF offerings in anime, and while it's not great, it has a charm about it that earned it's place in my rewatch cycle. In the line of fighting game-based anime, the Fatal Fury series is probably the best at sticking to it's core story.......sort of.

STORY (5): It follows the simple plot of the game; Andy and Terry train to avenge their father Jeff, killed by a suave Geese Howard (fresh from getting his butt kicked by Ryo read more
