Street Fighter Alpha: Generations

Street Fighter Alpha: Generations is a 2005 Japanese animated film produced by Studio A.P.P.P. and released by Manga Entertainment based on the Street Fighter Alpha video games by Capcom. Its production is unrelated to 1999's Street Fighter Alpha: The Movie, which was produced by Group TAC. The film was produced specifically for the English language market and was not officially released in Japan until its inclusion as a bonus feature in the DVD release of Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li under the name Street Fighter Zero: Generations.[1]


The movie begins with Gouki (as Akuma is called in both, the Japanese and English dubs of the movie) battling his master Goutetsu. Though both combatants show equal potency, in the end, Gouki is the victor, killing Goutetsu with the Raging Demon technique.

Gouken arrives in time to find the mangled body of their master Goutetsu and a no longer human looking Gouki. Gouken scorns Gouki, telling him that his path was set for him and asking why he would do such a thing. Gouki steals his master's beaded necklace and walks away completely unfazed. A girl named Sayaka, unable to reach the fight in time, falls down to her knees and vomits, a sign of her pregnancy and her connection to Gouki.

The movie then moves forward, introducing Ryu, who is visiting his master's old dojo; it is there that an apparition of Gouki comes to Ryu and challenges him. When Ryu comes to his senses, he is greeted by an old man, who says that he too had just witnessed what was a true demon. The old man invites Ryu to his house, where Ryu meets his granddaughter Fuuka, and offers to train him. Sakura shows up and spars with him, which encourages Ryu to accept Akuma's challenge.

Ryu seeks out Akuma, and the fight begins. During their hard battle Ken confronts the old man and is easily taken down. It is here that old man tells Ken about the Satsui no Hado. He states that the Satsui no Hado is a mysterious evil life force that dwells within certain fighters. As this life force is exploited it grows stronger until it consumes its possessor. Once the person is consumed by the Satsui no Hado they cannot be released from is hold. He states that the Satsui no Hado is ancient, that even old warlords knew of its existence.

As Ryu and Gouki continue to fight, Ryu becomes desperate and is temporarily possessed by the Satsui no Hado. However, he realizes that it is not the correct course of action and stops using the power. Gouki scolds Ryu, saying to him that his path to a great warrior had been clouded and that a true warrior unleashes his full potential. Seeing Ryu as no threat to him anymore, Gouki unleashes a Messatsu Gou Hadou on him, only to have Ryu survive it. Gouki then walks away, cursing Gouken and saying that he will meet Ryu again and fight him. Gouki sees an apparition of Sayaka treating his wounds in the past before the scene shifts back to the present with Gouki demonstrating a more human appearance with normal eyes, perhaps implying that he has regained some of his humanity. Bruised from his fight, Ryu walks away, foreshadowing a possible battle in the future.

The movie ends with the old man standing, looking to the sky and addressing an old friend (Gouken). He states that he took his eyes off of a young child many years ago for a very brief period of time, and it was the biggest mistake he has made. He states that he is too old, and that his time has come. Fuuka later buries him and prays in tears. Ryu takes one last look at her and leaves soon after, beginning his travels again.
