When a game adaptation appears in the headlines among the abundance of press releases, there’s almost an inescapable sense of dread. For whatever reason, the human race is unable to accurately depict video games, and this has to be discussed. But we finally have a worthy answer. After years of repeated trial and error, we finally have the perfect game adaptation in Tekken: Bloodline.
The anime was released mere hours ago. And it looks like Netflix has bagged a huge win in the anime series. Fans are extremely happy with the streamer for staying faithful to the original material and creating a worthy anime worth the wait. Let us take a look at what other things the fans are saying.
Fans are loving Tekken: Bloodline on Netflix
For those unfamiliar with Tekken: Bloodline, the series is set canonically in the game IP’s history. Jin Kazama practices with their mother between Tekken 2 and Tekken 3. After Jin’s training is completed, the anime goes on a quest for vengeance against his father. Since day one of the project, Netflix has explained about staying true to the original source and creating the most authentic series.
And it looks like they have delivered just that. The anime is streaming for sheer hours, and fans are already loving it. The biggest plus point of the Netflix Original seems to be its action and accurate depiction of characters from the games. Many have since used Twitter as a platform to express their admiration for the show.
Some of the tweets by happy fans of Tekken: Bloodline are:
Just finished Tekken Bloodline.
As a huge Tekken fan, this series was absolutely what it should be. True to the main story of Tekken 3. I highly recommend it for Tekken players who like the Mishima Tekken story. I would love a second season!#TekkenBloodline pic.twitter.com/yBCryo45yG

Tekken:Bloodline Rating: 8/10!
Anime was good, Although some may have not gone as i have imagined.
When i saw Steve and Hwoarang, i thought they'd be rivals in the anime but i was wrong. It would be really awesome if they did though! #TekkenBloodline #TEKKEN #TEKKEN7 pic.twitter.com/AoPRrz8OTS

Tekken: Bloodline is a great retelling of Tekken 3 events in a well told and concise way. Mainly focusing on Jin, the events play well and provide enough info to tell a story. The small changes of characters and looks don't feel too out of place. Overall a great time imo! pic.twitter.com/SbvbdKWnsa

Not a perfect anime
In no sense is Tekken: Bloodline a completely perfect show. The anime to has its own flaws, with some finding too many flashbacks a negative in the show. But despite all the shortcomings, with only six half-hourly episodes, the anime packs in an entertaining two-hour watch that will leave fans extremely satisfied and wanting for more.
Did you guys stream the anime on Netflix? Let us know if you liked it or not.
