    Still Holds Up After A Long Time!
    Even though it's been a long time since I first watched it, I'm still enjoying this show in 2018! Very solid show, my favorite episode probably has to be episode 49. The show stays true to the manga, which I also enjoyed. Fist of The North Star remains in my top 3 favorite anime to this day!

    Fist of the Explosive Star
    In the future of 199X, everyone is turned into pressurized water balloons, and the man with the strongest fingers is king.

    But seriously it's Fist of the North Star, the show where a guy name Ken punches dudes and they explode because magi—pressure points. This is a classic anime, probably one of the first that helped to shape the genre of fighting anime. Honestly this show is more about ...

    Old school still does it right
    After finishing the 152 episodes (at time of writing) I can't help but feel nostalgia as it wrapped up nicely. Every episode was building up to a climatic end that delivered. Each arc raised the stakes but not too high that it became ridiculous and each punch felt genuine. It was hard to get into at first given its old school style it's not as pretty as some modern anime's but it was quite ...

    One of the greatest shows of all time.
    Actually the best anime out there. It's a little old, but I have only seen one show that even compares to the greatness of this one. If you haven't seen Hokuto No Ken, you haven't lived. Every episode is action packed and will keep you interested the whole time. It has a great plot along with great action scenes and many touching moments.

    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 ...

    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.

  • 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 ...
