  • 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.

  • it's just one of those classic anime
    I remember i use to watch few episodes everytime of this classic anime but even after long time watching this reminds me that they actually put a lot of thought into making the storyline work till the end and how each relationship that kenshiro goes through makes him the person he becomes. Still one of my favorite anime

    After the nuclear apocalypse of 199X, Kenshiro begins his quest to rid the world of evil & bring hope to humanity. Initially, North Star begins as a revenge tale where Kenshiro is searching for his fiancé Yuria whose been kidnapped by his rival Shin. Afterwards the story then focuses on Kenshiro's destiny to bring back peace to this "age of power" where humanity have become savage & desensitized ...

    epic show even in today's standerds
    fist of the north star is one of those gems that past the test of time, so it is easy to say that this is in my top ten favorite anime I mean I am not much of a watcher of older anime but this show feels so modern, I just love how the main character is a kind hearted man who can kill you in a single hit and at the same time not afraid to cry, compared to most modern action heroes Kenshiro is a ...

    They all try to fill Ken's shoes
    The maverick of over-the-top martial arts anime. Kenshiro paved the way for the upstarts of today. How it basically manages to convey stronger emotion than today's dime-a-dozen action shonens despite obviously not matching the standards of modern production values speaks volumes. Ichigos come and go, but Ken will influence posterity for generations yet to come.

    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... ...
