First of all, this is a continuation of Hokuto No Ken with a time gap in between, so you would probably want to look at that before this. But, as this is not a plot-based show, it does make sense without having seen the original.

The first half of the story was actually pretty enjoyable, even if very standard. Heroic Rebels overthrow the Evil Emprire, but it's done well and had some suspenseful moments and likeable characters. Falco is one of the more impressive adversaries for Ken and their final duel was good fun. If the story ended at that point, I would have given the read more

Don't waste your time watching this series. I would recommend it just to diehard hokuto-fans, who have of course already watched it though, so I don't recommend it to anyone. Bad story, very bad characters (exept for Falco), boring episodes, and a lot of stupid and incredible mistakes in the reconstruction of the past of the characters. Just the soundtracks are quite good. But the story is very poor and after the 109 epsodes of the first serie this sequel has nothing new, nothing worth watching. Very, very poor.

An worthy continuation of one of japan´s most populair anime franchise since 1983, so soon its HAPPY HAPPY BRITHDAY hokuto no ken, to survive all these decades!!!
