Street Fighter II V (ストリートファイターⅡ Ｖ, Sutorīto Faitā Tsū Bui?, pronounced "two vee") is an anime series based on the fighting game Street Fighter II. Directed by Gisaburo Sugii, the series first aired in Japan in 1995, from April 10 to November 27, on YTV. As of July 2007 re-runs of the series started to air Mondays on Sci Fi.
The series is a loose adaptation of the games, taking several liberties with the established canon of the games. The show follows the adventures of a young Ryu and Ken, as they go through a journey to improve their martial arts skills after they both experienced a brutal defeat at the hands of Guile. Other characters such as Chun-Li, Cammy and Sagat appear through the course of the series with radically different character designs and backstories from their original counterparts.
