    A Classic Timeless Tale
    Fist of the North Star, aka, Hokuto no Ken, is an amazing anime that transcends time. It is still as great as it was decades ago when it originally aired. A classic story that any anime lover should watch! It somehow manages to be the most manly show ever made, and yet have it's core message be about love. And it works perfectly.

    Best show, best shirt ripping, best action
    So much action, it's ridiculous. I'm probably one of the first human beings on this planet who finished this show at an average of 20 episodes per day. It all started with me having one of my "classics days" (when I get in the mood for Dragon Ball Z, Gundam Wing, Trigun, Pokemon, etc. just for the nostalgia) and I decided to give this baby a try. It delivers on everything I want. Action and uh... ...

    I cried manly tears!! T_T
    Kenshiro is the true definition of a man! The story was rich and the characters full of pride! If your into emotional, bloody, manly kung-fu action, then this is it! It's pretty old of an anime,being made back in the early 1980's but the most classical in my opinion. This breathtaking Japanese anime series has inspired anime creators like Eiichiro Oda, the creator of "One Piece" including Kohta ...

  • One of the best shonen classics
    Very entertaining show where the abundant filler is actually extremely entertaining. I rarely watch long shows but this one got me hooked from start to finish. Kenshiro's way of giving everyone a fighting chance and demonstrate his power against the enemies' strongest techniques makes this show unique. Several action based anime use elements from HnK and watching this makes you understand ...

  • great classic anime.
    A blast up to the final fight with raoh, but after raohs death, its kind of a "whatever"
    still, lots of material till then and lots of fun.
    Far less girly and childish than much of modern anime.
    Not much more to say on it but that. please enjoy.

  • Old-school, indispensable watch !
    It's a very old piece of anime, but frankly if you love martial-art themed anime, you just can't ignore this one. Great epic adventure based and outrageously good hand-to-hand combat in a post appocaliptic world. Ken will fight against giants of epic proportions and/or against fierce martial-art techniques. Just try it !

  • Has aged pretty well.
    I didn't exactly know what I was getting into when I decided to start watching it in January. At first I was a little confused, and although the middle of the first season and beginning of the second season dragged I was hooked on this crazy action filled adventure. And from the middle of season two onward I was enthralled with this world, the characters and the action. Although the very final ...

  • Mmm delicuous rap snitch knishes
    Pretty good, pee pee got hard when the womens breast were shown / bandits killed people. Main character is strong like me so the series is highly relatable, could be using a katana tho because thats the best nip weapon. I disliked how long the series is bc it cut into my hentai viewing but w/e my loli isnt going anywhere. 8/10
