Shonen battle anime are arguably the most popular genre of anime as well as the genre that drew most of us into the medium with titles such as One Piece or Dragon ball Z. However, prior to the latter's releasewe really don't remember very many shonen battle series and for good reason, they were pretty bad. Manga like Violence Jack and Riki-Oh show us that a lot of battle oriented manga at the time were not interested in making something that would stand the test of time and more so just showcasing lots of carnage.

With that being said, there are two titans that stand as exceptions to that rule: Fist of the North Star and Saint Seiya. These are the two best remembered series among the oldest of old-school shonen so I think it's finally time we pit them against one another. Time to decide which one is better.

I have personally never watched Fist of the North Star, but I have seen Saint Seiya and it's awesome. I personally really do enjoy classic animes and when I want to re-watch one, I tend to go straight towards Saint Seiya. The concept of the series is so fascinating, with their cosmetic powers and what not. It's also a good series for those who like mythology, as it focuses on characters such as Athena and Hades. My vote may be a little bias, but I vote for Saint Seiya nonetheless.

I don't see how it's any sort of contest. Fist of the North Star beats a sentai show any day.


Also, didn't Riki-Oh get a live action movie? That's pretty famous in certain circles, if so.

Riki-Oh the chibese movie is fantastic.

The original Japanese manga, not so much.
