Volume 2 came out this week and man is it great! With most of the plot dealt with in the last volume this one is non stop fighting! Satsui No Hadou Ryu vs. Adon! Satsui No Hadou Ryu vs. Guy! Rose vs. Vega!(M.Bison in the US) Rose vs. Vega! Boiling down to the big fight Ryu vs. Vega which is just crazy, they really push things up to almost the Dragon Ball level ha ha!
Great stuff like the first time Sakura sees Ryu and I love anything with regards to Ryu and Chun-Li’s friendship heh heh! Guy was just AWESOME in the manga man!
More tidbits on things that eventually influenced Capcom and the SFZ/A series. Dan and Blanka’s friendship! Dan being Sakura’s master! Chun-Li and Nash working together! Rose in Guy’s arms when everything’s over. Hell they even talked about the Psycho Drive oh man! :lovin:
As a bonus there’s even a preview of Udon’s translation of the Sakura Ganbaru manga and you get to see Karin’s first appearance ever - a character that Capcom liked so much that made her into a playable character, just like Satsui No Hadou / Evil / Dark Hadou Ryu lol he has a few names.
They also show you the first brand new cover of Udon’s more faithful translation of Masaomi Kanzaki’s Street Fighter II manga, he is providing three brand new covers! Wow he’s really grown as an artist over the years, his Ryu is better than ever! His Chun-Li looks closer to Capcom’s now, even though I am a little sad because I always liked his older version that had two sets of bangs in front of her face instead of just the one. Oh well so long as he doesn’t pull a George Lucas and starts changing Chun-Li in the manga to have one set of bangs it’s all gravy train.
TOO MUCH GOODNESS GO GET THIS GOSH DARN IT!
