After the success of the Fatal Fury animes, it was decided that Art of Fighting was popular enough to have one. Originally airing in Japan as a TV special very late on in 1993, Battle Spirits Ryuuko no Ken, simply known as Art of Fighting outside of Japan, is one of the worst game to anime adaptions you can possibly watch. Featuring poor animation, a silly plot, stupid characters and terrible fight scenes, this has almost nothing good going for it, apart from some of the music being decent.

The worst thing about it is the Art of Fighting game actually had a much better story than this, so why didn't they use the game's story? Instead we got this, which is without doubt the worst of the SNK animes. Everybody hates this movie and so should you. You know it sucks when even the IMDB reviewers are right.
