King of Fighters Anime (2005-08-07 10:29:46)
According to Soft Bank Publishing's Neo Geo Freak, Production I.G is working on a King of Fighters anime. Concept art for Kyo Kusanagi can be seen in the above article, and it was stated that characters K', Alba Meira, and Ash Crimson will be featured in the anime. Further details are not available yet. Thanks to Arlen Pavka for this item.
Oh how I've longed for a KOF anime. Huzzah to know Production IG will be on the job, concept art for Kyo looks nice his outfit looks a lot like his 2K3 one. Good to see K' will be in it, Alba from MI why? and Ash Crimson hmm does this mean the anime will be set around the 2K3 storyline with the new awakening of orochi? Either way I'm just happy to know there'll be an anime for KOF sometime in the future. All they need to do now is one to turn Metal Slug into one .. or Waku Waku 7.

Haha, nice. I've always been a sucker for fighting games turned anime. Guess it's because of all the time and effort I spent in these games back when it was big. I'm not as keen on the KoF cast, as opposed to the original Fatal Fury cast, but still, this could prove entertaining.

And it's Pro I.G., it can't be *that* bad, right?

Fatal Fury cast did provide some great characters, who could not like Terry especially his MOTW version which I was happy to see in KOF2K3 (even though that incarnation was pretty iffy). Actually the MOTW characters were some of best that SNK had done, and I'm glad to see that they are deciding to introduce more and more of them into the KOF continuum ala B Jenet in KOFXI

One thing with the anime I hope they don't try and cram as many characters into it, which seems to be a problem with most of video game animes.

Really? But I doubt that will deter me from seeking Street Fighter Alpha 2 down, I'm a sucker for animes based off Capcom fighters they usually have some nice action scenes which really is the only reason why you would bother with them.

I saw the trailer and it looks like it's going to suck. My friend that went to EVO2k5 and saw it said it sucked. That's good enough for me.

Just make sure you don't have to pay to see it.

Don't plan to haha.

Anyway more character designs for the KOF anime over here.

http://www.watch.impress.co.jp/game/...050823/kof.htm

Kyo's new outfit looks alright, though I prefer his KOF2K3 outfit over this one. Alba I really can't comment much as I never did play much of KOFMI. I'm really happy with K' he looks great and ditto with Ash.

Well the first episode of King of Fighters Another Day is out, looks like there will just be 4 episodes at about 10 minutes each.

Only the raw is available so I didn't quite get what was happening, some fire is ravaging South Town, Soiree, Athena, Iori and Mai are attracted to some energy or something amongst the fires. I don't know about the Maximum Impact storyline who I don't quite know what the whole deal is behind Alba and Soiree, I assume they are the good guys seeing as Soiree took on Iori in a spiffy but short fight.

I guess I wished they were longer in length so the fight scenes could be fleshed out, but I think they did a pretty alright job so far.

this sucks. this could have been the anime to change the "Video Game" anime curse. With the Exception of the first Street Fighter Movie. I also this the Disgaea anime will be funny, Disgaea was a PS2 sleeper hit and in my opinion *BOMBS OVER BAGHDAD* It was better than Final Fantasy Tactics!!!
