In a post-apocalyptic Earth, the water has become entirely toxic, except for some kept safe in a reservoir. A fortified zone has been created by a man named Sanga, he calls it The Lastland. A group of villagers have discovered safe water, and Sanga wants it. He and his band of killers go to kill everyone and steal it. As they do a mysterious man appears out of nowhere, instantly killing some of Sanga's men. His name is Kenshiro, and he can beat any man with his martial art, Hokuto Shin Ken. Sanga will do anything for the water, and Kenshiro will do anything to try and stop him.

Fist of the North Star, one of the first series/movies I'd ever seen. Basically story is post-apocalyptic with martial arts being the main defense/offense for all rogue citizens. There are certain martial artists that practice Hokuto style which is the "creme of the crop" the type of martial arts that can debilitate, kill or heal others with a single touch. A wandering traveler, Kenishiro meets and decides to help save a country from a false leader.

Story: 8/10- it's a classic, straight up action martial arts anime with a simple to follow story line and lots of violence.

Art: 9/10- A great thing about OVAs is read more
