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

I watched this series directly following the first series (and assuming the reader of this review has watched the first one as well), so this will be a bit of a comparison between the two.

Firstly, I have to say, that this series was a let down when compared with the original. There are a couple major reasons for this, which are as follows:

1: The story. The story this time around was really unattractive for me. It didn't HAVE to be bad, but I really think it was poorly executed. I should say that the earlier half, story-wise, was going in a good direction. Ken reappeared read more

Recommendations

Both are sequels to long running shonen anime who held a huge influence in the 1980's. Sadly, both series have the same problems of continuity errors involving the origins of our leading heroes; Kinnikuman & Kenshiro. The strengths of these sequels are their increased budget of animation, less censored violence, manly heroics and a tearjerker farewell.
Lots of retroactive continuity, which just turns out to be awesome. Lutz's gun nomenclature now extends to 1,700 year old guns? Ken has a secret past on an island FULL of badasses? Hell yes.
