VOYA
AGERANGE: Ages 11 to 18.

Fans of the Street Fighter II video game franchise will rejoice at the arrival of the reprinting of the tie-in manga. First published in 1993 and long unavailable in the United States, Volume 1 begins the story of Ryu, a young warrior on a quest to become the ultimate martial artist. Among the many expected fighting sequences is a filament of a plot. Ryu travels to the mysterious, man-made island of Shad, where lawlessness reigns and fighting matches-mostly rigged-are the order of the day. There he meets Chun-Li, a DEA agent determined to bring down the Shadaloo, the Mafia-like organization responsible for the distribution of an addictive and deadly new street drug, as well as for the disappearance of her father. The video game is about just that, of course-the battles among the different warriors, their unique powers, and their back stories. Even though readers root for the likeable Ryu and the determined, feisty Chun-Li, as in most manga, even the villains have a tale to tell. Surprisingly despite the story's cheesiness, artist and author Kanzaki delivers an intriguing and often amusing tale. The art is nineties style, short on big eyes and ethereally pretty boys and girls. Manga fans who enjoy Jo-Jo's Bizarre Adventure, Dragon Ball Z, and Ultimate Muscle manga and anime, as well as video game aficionados, will appreciate this addition to the young adult manga collection.
