What is ‘Tekken: Bloodline’ about?
The anime will adapt the story from Tekken 3. This is a great choice since Tekken 3 was their first exposure to this franchise for many. Jin Kazama learned his family martial arts the Kazama style from his mother at a very young age. But still he still stood powerless as everything was taken from him by an evil demon known as “Ogre”.
This leads to him taking on the Mishima style on a mad quest to gain power for revenge against Ogre. Eventually, he ends in The King of Iron Fist Tournament, where the world’s best fighters will be fighting for the top prize. Fans are sure to have a good time, and this anime will be a great entry point into the franchise for newcomers.
