It Really Is Tough

It's a short anime series and out of all of them released in the past few years Shootfighter is one of the best. All three episodes are action packed with grappling and holding moves that will leave you with a hanging jaw. This series is dedicated to showing viewers extreme fight sequences that have never been seen before. You are first introduced to young teen Kiichi who talks a lot but can back it up. Kiichi is very skilled in martial arts and who wouldn't be when you have a father who is not only an expert at the deadly Nanshin Shadow Style but who is an ex pro wrestler as well.

Kiichi's Father puts him through brutal training night after day but somehow this kid can crave more. He wants to be as strong as his father and one day beat him in a fight and these three episodes show how he gains endless knowledge and strength. Shootfighter Tekken is an amazing series and this complete collection is sort of reasonable considering you save 10$ and you get some cool DVD extras. The final match between Kiichi and Iron Kiba is crazy and the two stop at nothing to kill each other and it makes a great ending for a great series. The animation is just right but don't get confused because at times they make Kiichi look as big as the guys he's fighting and then you find out that he is really small.
