Here's a different kind of Tekken! An animated one, with magnificent animation at that, colorful and effectual.
The story follows an unlikely friendship between a human and a robot (although she does seem very human), a demonic bloodline, magnificent battles and smooth animish character modeling, and in the end, one all-out battle between Jin, Kazuma and Heihachi, one ferocious family reunion! :D It's all a bit exaggerated and fictional, but it has enough realism to make it work. And besides, it's based on a video game, so in that sense the animated versions would have more realism than the live-action ones. ;)
The animation is slick, the story light-heartedly dramatic, jumping between flashy fights and philosophical dialog. It starts off right away with a fight between Nina and Anna - just step into the Tekken universe and get lost, but after a while... it all makes sense. Bonus sense if you're knowledgeable of commonly reoccurring characters within the series, as I feel I am starting to get, though some characters still remain a mystery. The more you know, the more you'll enjoy it!
