“Power is everything.” Jin Kazama learned the family self-defense arts, Kazama Style Traditional Martial Arts, from his mother at an early age. Even so, he was powerless when a monstrous evil suddenly appeared, destroying everything dear to him, changing his life forever. Angry at himself for being unable to stop it, Jin vowed revenge and sought absolute power to exact it. His quest will lead to the ultimate battle on a global stage — The King of Iron Fist Tournament.”
‘Tekken: Bloodline’ is based on the video game franchise “Tekken”, which has had previous anime adaptations. The first of them was a 1998 two-part OVA called “Tekken: The Motion Picture”, which focused on the original “Tekken” game’s plot.
The game’s director, Katsuhiro Harada, also wrote a 2009 live-action movie, which was followed by the 2014 prequel, “Tekken 2: Kazuya’s Revenge”, which was made into a DVD series.
The early years of Tekken fighter, Jin Kazama, are depicted. He sets out on a valiant quest to attend The King of Iron Fist Tournament in order to get revenge for the death of his mother.
