Both series are about wandering martial artists with a dark past that eventually catches up with them, both must confront their fears.
Both feature EXCEPTIONAL fight sequences as well...
If you thought Street Figher II: The Movie was good. Then watch Fist of the North Star movie. Both of these movies got the fighting and blood. If you like gruesome fighting and blood these both have it all.

Both JoJo's Bizarre Adventure and Street Fighter represent styles of fighting that are unique and original. Though the approaches are different, the way they amaze you will blow your mind away. They also have stories that take the characters around the world to meet new enemies and new allies on their quest to defeat the main bad guy.
Jojo's Bizarre Adventure and Street Fighter II both feature larger than life characters battling for dominance and pride. If you like exciting battles with lots of grandstanding and ridiculous over the top attacks then these shows are perfect for you. As an added bonus Jojo's Bizarre Adventure features some really preposterous hairdos even by anime standards.
The Mishima corporation is one of the richest conglomerates on the planet, and its owner, the legendary fighter Heihachi Mishima, is now sponsoring a martial arts competition – whoever can best the other competitors and finally defeat Heihachi himself will be awarded both wealth and the title of King of Iron Fist. But money and fame are not the only factors drawing fighters to the competition, as Heihachi has made many enemies over time – his son Kazuya being one of them.
Both movies have a large cast of fighters, good, evil and in-between. They are also based on popular fighting video game franchises. Both animes also contain lots of action scenes but still have a decent stroy as well.
If you're a big fan of fighting games, then you've probably played, and enjoyed both of the games that these two anime are based on. If that's the case then you may well find some enjoyment from seeing your favourite characters fully animated, and kicking ass on the small screen.
The big difference between the two is that the Tekken movie is animated in high-end CGI, whereas the BlazBlue anime is more your run-of-the mill hand drawn animation style, for the most part.
If you're not a fan of these games, then i wouldn't recommend either as they are filled with animation, pacing, directing, character design and plot flaws that can make it almost unwatchable. But diehard fans should at least get a kick out of them!
