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

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!!!

Storyline is stilll damn good and unpredictable dark plots inbetween wich transfers chara. to chara as the serie´s coming to an end, and some DAMN good villians-heroe´s introductions,and most of all: Bart & Lynn the two small kids , they grown up and survived!! en this time they fight too!Only there is a bit more lack 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.

Anime: Casshern Sins
Both have the same concept telling the same story about the world ruined by external forces in Hokuto no ken world ruined as a result of a worldwide nuclear war and many creatures died out and for Casshern Sins the world ruined by our main character who kills the sun and everyone include robots are dying
Also, both animes have similarities about the main characters, for example, both are very strong protecting their friends, killing the bad guys traveling around the world also the settings and backgrounds are similar and they are violated animes
every episode you have new battles and fights against evil

Anime: One Punch Man
Both Hokuto no ken & One punch man have similar stories. The main characters are very strong and also save the earth from monsters
While Hokuto no ken focus on the dark part of the story one punch man tells it in a funny way

Saitama can eliminate the different evil levels in one punch, guess wat! Ken can do it with one finger

Anime: Akame ga Kill!
Both animes has a variation of killings and violence throughout the anime, main characters can eliminate anyone with one attack:

-Akame can kill anything with one cut
-Kenshiro can kill anything with one finger

Anime: Virtua Fighter
while Hokuto no ken fallows very dark plot comparing to Virtua Fighter but both animes almost share everything
the main characters are very strong and powerful, also they can use secret techniques after years of training hard.
now Yuki Akira and Kenshiro will restore peace and order to the world and make sure that everyone is safe from those monsters
but this mission isn't easy because criminals are also strong
those criminals are killing innocents and doing bad things, but our faithful heroes won't forgive them

every episode you will see new technique used to conquer evil../> also, both Akira and Ken have to protect their friends and that will take from them a lot of effort

if you are fan of heroic classic animes , well this is for you.

The character design is same, a lot of fights, same styles, classic animes, badass criminals, strong heroes,..., same overall story

Anime: Kinnikuman: Kinnikusei Oui Soudatsu-hen
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.
