Synopsis

After being thrown off a cliff as a child, Kazuya Mishima enters the King of Iron Fist Tournament to extract revenge from his father, multi-billionaire Heihachi Mishima. Meanwhile, WWWC operative Jun Kazama and Hong Kong detective Lei Wulong also enter the tournament to investigate on Heihachi's illegal activities involving cloning and genetic engineering. A handful of other skilled fighters are also in it merely to win the grand prize of $1 billion, not knowing of the true purpose of the tournament and fate that awaits them.

Imagine if some Chinese company wanted to cash in on the popularity of Tekken, and made a bootleg anime ripping it off. How would that anime turn out?

Most likely, it would look as cheap as chips, be starved of quality action, and have characters and story that exhibit an uncanny valley quality, where they're recognisably taken from the game, but something feels off. Of course, it can't be called "Tekken" (which literally translates to "iron fist"), but probably something similar like "Sekken" (meaning "stone fist" ... or "soap" if you use the wrong kanji).

Funnily enough, an atrocity like that already exists! What's more, read more

If you lived in the U.S. chances are you have heard the saying or one like it an eye for an eye. A perfect match up for those demanding revenge. This story is meant to show you both stand points on that matter. It is up to you to figure out which makes more sense.

Story
Plain, right down to the ending. A well played out story would have you riddled in some form of emotion. Logic in character's action needs a simpler play-out. Currently is too complex.

Art
Clear. The characters along with scenery are drawn nicely. Art matches the time period/plot.

Sound-no issues. I did read more

Super brief review here. I'd put off watching this for years based on the box art alone (dating myself here), but I did eventually sit down and give it a viewing. Produced in 1998 by Studio Deen, the Tekken OVAs arrived on the scene just prior to the PlayStaion port of the fantastic Tekken 3 game, and good lord does it disappoint. With its weak art, poor characterizations, stagnant animation, and a story only tangentially related to its source material, it's a travesty. Arguably the worst of the fighting game adaptations of the '90s, which is saying something since both the Art of Fighting and read more

Preliminary
As a fan of Tekken I felt it was my duty to at least watch this and after watching this all I did was let out with a disappointing sigh. Here's why

::STORY::
This story takes place around the Tekken 1/2 period but differs a lot from the original story of both games. The main plot being Kazuya's vow to take revenge on his father Heihachi Mishima for throwing him down a cliff at a young age. Through this story we encounter many sub-plots filled within a short space of time, Jun Kazama who is an officer working for a Wildlife protection organisation has a sixth sense read more
