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.
In a post-apocalyptic future, gangs of savage thugs prey on the fleeting remnants of civilization, raiding them for food and water in the endless wasteland the world has become. Humankind's only hope for the future may lie in a young girl with an amazing ability and in the only man powerful enough to protect her and punish evil--Ken, the Fist of the North Star!
In both animes you have great heros and (martial art) fighters and the fights (as well as the characters) are really very much overemphasize, which is a thing not everybody likes but if you like such a style, you will probably have fun with both animes.
But note: While Fist of the North Star can be seen as really serious (and in my opinion great) anime with a very deep story and strong characters, you shouldn't take Tekken too serious or expect a great storyline at all... but you should be fine, if you see Tekken just as a piece of entertaining stereotype anime ;-)
The evil Bison has returned with sinister plans to take over the world using Shadow Law, his nefarious crime syndicate! His cyborg goons are searching the globe to take out any martial artist who might stand in Bison's way -- brainwashing and recruiting those who they defeat. But when Ryu manages to kill one of Bison's prime fighters, Bison discovers Ryu's potential and wants it for his own. Now, with the help of allies who are out for revenge, can Ryu defeat this all-powerful fighting machine before Bison enslaves him as well?
Both video game cash-ins, Street Fighter being the better of the two. But Tekken is always good for a giggle as well. If you love martial arts Anime then you won't be disappointed...
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.
One year ago, Eiji Shinjo and a group of powerful fighters competed in the Toshin Tournament, to prove their strength. In the present, a mysterious warrior is hunting down the Tournament's participants one by one, and is using their own moves against them. For Eiji, Kayin and the rest of the gang, tracking down the responsible party will put them right in the middle of a conspiracy that threatens their very lives! Can strength alone defeat an enemy who seems to know their every move before they use it?
Both are made from video games. both are quite terrible to sit through and make you wish you were playing the game instead. with a few fighting sequences and random drama between the characters that the anime viewer won't quite get unless they played the games (possibly LOL), check one out if you for some reason liked the other.
If you're a big fan of fighting games, then you've probably played, and enjoyed both of these game 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.
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!
Dio is a name that has haunted the Joestar family line for more than 100 years. In his pursuit of power, the vampiric martial artist has put Holly Joestar into a coma, and it is now up to her father Joseph and her son Jotaro to find Dio and restore her. Aided by their friends Polnaref and Abdul, the four warriors each command a powerful Stand -- a projection of their fighting will -- in tune with the cards of the Tarot. But Dio himself is said to possess a powerful and mysterious Stand known only as “The World”. Can Jotaro match Dio’s power with his “Star Platinum” and save his mother?
