Street Fighter IV: The Ties That Bind

It's been a while since I've seen a Street Fighter anime, the last one being Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie.  It was a masterpiece with stellar animation, realistic fight choreography, and a Chun Li shower scene!  The SF formula is in full effect here in Street Fighter IV: The Ties That Bind(Insert Bad Guy) is out to capture data on the world's top fighters while (Insert Heroes) investigate the unusual events surrounding the fighters' (Deaths/Disappearances), leading to a climactic battle between good and evil.  The animation is impressive with fluid fight scenes and character emotions.  Several SF favorites make appearances in this 45-minute movie and there's no shortage of ladies with veterans Chun Li, Cammy, Sakura, Ken's wife Eliza and newcomer Crimson Viper.  While Chun Li and Sakura are relegated to beating up goons, the real catfight here belongs to Cammy and Crimson Viper.  I hate to give away more than the images already have, but I'll say that C. Viper gets a strong push!  Only bad thing is this anime comes as a bonus disc in the Collector's Edition of Street Fighter IV for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
