Night Warriors - Darkstalkers' Revenge
Reviewer: Rowena Lim Lei 12/31/1999

Synopsis:
Donovan is half-human and half-darkstalker. He has hated his "tainted" blood for as long as he can remember. He spends his days using his great power to destroy everything that is evil. Lin Lin and Lei Lei are sisters who have chosen to become dark ones in order to avenge their mother's death. Demitri and Morrigan are the rulers of their own domains, seeking to control the dark. Felicia just wants to be a good person and lead a normal life, free of prejudice... all their paths are bound together by the alien Pyron -- whose only desire is to become the absolute ruler of the universe... even if there is nothing left to rule!
 
Review:
Since Night Warriors is originally a fighting game, the anime is a collation of the life and times of its more popular characters. Their stories are linked together by Pyron, an enigmatic alien megalomaniac. What I find commendable is the fact that everything is coherent and well put-together despite the multiple character sub-plots. Everything just blends very well. It doesn't matter if you've never played the game, because the story can stand on its own without any gaming background.
 
The art and animation are eye-poppingly impressive. The characters all look awesome and are exactly like their video game counterparts. Fighting sequences are fast, furious, and very fluid. There is great attention to detail and I find that the attacks are faithful to the original video game moves. The music and songs also fit in nicely. The English dubbing is done quite well too. The plot doesn't have as much depth as I would have liked, but still, this is undoubtedly the one of the best anime adaptations of a fighting game I've seen.
 
Miscellanies:
Everything just looks so good.
