Well first off, what does everyone think of the new series of HnK movies/OVAs? I just recently got Junai no Sho director’s cut and they fixed a lot of oddities and stuff in the original (point and case Souther’s shirt missing at one point the terrible looking children at that one point with Shuu). What is up with the Toki OVA when is that coming out?
anyone catch souten no ken (fist of the blue sky)? it’s pretty good too…but HnK will always be the best!! it gets a little out of hand at times though like how everyone is everyone’s brother or sister and they are all twins, lol…
I LOVE the Hokuto no ken/Fist of the North Star anime. Easily my favorite action/fighting anime ever, which used to be Dragonball Z but DBZ’s really got nothing on this stuff.
Just finished watching all of the original 80’s anime a few weeks ago, and Souten no ken/Fist of the blue sky. I’ve nearly seen it all, the only thing hnk that i didn’t love was that 1 Yuria Denitzu(sp?) movie. Which was basically a giant, long flashback with lots of strange stuff we’ve never seen before.
One of my favorite hnk characters is Souther. Now THAT was a badass villain! One of the select few to really OWN kenshiro’s ass in a fight.
As for Jojo’s Bizarre adventure, i’ve been a fan since the capcom fighters way back in 1999(CPS-3!). Its only been recently that i’ve gotten the anime on DVD but i only have the first two discs. Definitely want to see the rest of it.

Some of the movies are on there as well. One could argue the quality is just as bad, but it doesn’t bother me.
I’ve started watching it and I’m almost to the Souther fight. I really like it. DB and HnK are in two different leagues (they’re both still awesome). Can’t get enough of Hokuto: Hyakretsu Ken! And the obligatory: Omae wa mo shindeiru
