  • The Bruce Lee in anime!
    Fist of the North Star was and still is my number one favorite anime and manga series, and also the huge inspiration for my day to day life and long term goal.
    This manly series inspire many series from Jojo Bizarre and Sakigake Otokojuku in terms of art style and main character design and story theme to Kim Kaphwan character using high pitch "Atatata" cry every time he use his trademark super ...

  • 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

  • The original One Punch Man
    Ken might kill me if I write a bad review, so just to be safe 5/5. Also, I recommend for anyone wanting to gain muscle mass to listen to the intro a few times. I was able to get 45 inch biceps and washboard abs after listening to the intro 5-6 times.

  • Hokuto No Ken aka Fist of the North Star
    Classic Anime, it has it all.... Blood, Love, comedy, martial arts, deep profound messages about mankind... great mix of Bruce Lee/Mad Max feel... One of my first anime I grew up on... If Gundam is like star wars this is like raiders or back to the future its just great classic manga turned into anime!!!!!

  • Great anime of the centuries end
    It's a post apocalyptic world with the main character Kenshiro being the saviour. Along the way he meets the two main side characters Bat and Lin two kids. They basically tag along with him for every season but there is a time skip in the 5th season. Great action, romance, sad deaths. Can't really find anything bad to say about this anime. You won't get bored ever and you'll probably finish it and ...

  • Even the Filler Episodes are Great
    How often does that ever happen?

    Loads of memorable gimmicky villains receiving poetic justice from the knuckles of the protagonist.

    The intros are all top notch and the atmosphere is pure 80s perfection.

    Plenty of hilarity in the post apocalyptic world of inexplicable gigantism. As for the serious parts, manly tears will be shed.

    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.
