  • My Favorite MANLY 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... ...

    ATATATATATATATATATATA!
    Manly tears and kung fu in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. What more could you ask for? Seriously. Kenshiro, the main character, explodes people with his fists. This is just something you have to witness for yourself. Words cannot do it justice.

    You are already dead!
    Weekly Shonen Jump's post-apocalyptic classic! Imagine an anime series starring the platonic lovechild of Bruce Lee and Mad Max from "The Road Warrior", and you get this series. SO F@%$ING MANLY! WATCH THIS SERIES!

    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 ...

    Fist of the North Star, 1983 to 1988
    This is it, people. One of the originals. There are so many videogames, TV shows, and even other animations that copy elements from this show that it is a legend in its own right.

    Kenshiro, a man who lived his youth in an era of freedom and peace (the 80's, of course!), trained as a martial artist in the Divine Fist of the North Star. A nuclear war broke out and he was one of the lucky folks ...
