For those that are not familiar with the Japanese language. Ryu's name is pronounced (Ree-you), not (Rye-you). Also Ryu is a direct translation meaning Dragon in Japanese, thus making Ken's and Ryu's signature move Sho-ryu-ken literally translating Rising Dragon Punch. See more »

I haven't seen such a good anime (except for Rurouni Kenshin, that is as good as SF II V). First of all... The music, what a great music! very appropiate in every scene. Is a shame that Manga Entertainment replaced the intro video (and also the intro music) for the US market; the Japanese intro is very similar, but the music is very pretty and smooth (the music is the one placed at the end during the "NEXT EPISODE" summary, but they have supressed the lyrics of the song in the US), But the US music is also great.
Great action scenes, and a very attractive plot after the fifth episode.
I allow myself to say, that this is the greatest action anime ever. If you saw Saint Seiya or Dragon Ball, and you are looking for something different, you should see Street Fighter II V.
Also is shame that this series is too short, i have seen it twice, and i still want to see more... (I could also watch it four times more and still not get bored).
