SynopsisKenshiro is the heir of the legendary martial arts known as Hokuto Shinken, which can kill a man with a single blow, by striking the pressure points in the enemy's body. Hokuto Shinken can be passed only to one successor at a time. When he was chosen as the successor, he parted ways with his brothers, Toki and Raoh. The former decided to use what he knew of the art to cure people... while the latter has chosen to use his supreme strength to install peace in the world by power.
Kenshiro is accompanied by Lynn and Bart, and the movie's story begins when an overlord starts kidnapping children to use them as slaves for building his own pyramid...

First review for this movie yeey!
I hate to admit, but I have not seen the original show. I tried, I struggled with it as it is just (sorry to say but) too old...
Therefore, I was so delighted when I heard that they are making a movie series out of it.
Hokuto no ken is the grandfather of all fighting animes, the most testosterone-filled anime I have ever seen (Jojo's bizarre adventure being a close second).
This story is like a living fossil. I have no second thoughts if I say, that the creator was one of the few masterminds who came up with the universal recipe for a great fighting anime:
The ingredients are pretty much:
- An epic and righteous hero
- Some beautiful girls (just to mess with their minds)
- Lovable supporters
- An epic antagonist
- A unique fighting style
When all of this is mixed together in the right proportions, something amazing will be born.
The story might seem a bit of a cliché, however, most likely, everything else that is similar was inspired by this show.
The post-apocalyptic world filled with anarchy where people live in fear and despair, waiting for the one hero that will save them. It is pretty clear, not much to explain.
I personally love the art style (Jojo's bizarre adventure is very similar to this). The modern art and character design make it very enjoyable. Remaking this show was probably the best thing ever. Also, it is surprisingly well done for something made in 2006...that was 10 years ago!
The background is also very nicely done but everything apart from Toki's home is very dark and depressing. Also, to my greatest joy, there is no 3D effects whatsoever in it.
Hokuto no ken Raoh Gaiden Junai-hen has all the arch-types of characters that are needed for a good show. The righteous hero, rivaling brothers, the badass female hero (a bit like Casca from Berserk), lovable background characters and lots and lots of evil ones.
It is very interesting to see the relations between the main characters. I am not entirely sure who is good and bad at this point. I hope to see lots of character development in the next movies.
Hokuto no ken Raoh Gaiden Junai-hen is a true legend in the anime world. It focuses on such pure and fundamental values that I just cannot give it a lower review score.
I recommend this to anyone who wants to see where most of today's animes came from.
In addition to all of this, needless to say, there is absolutely NO fanservice in it.
Do not be afraid that it is old. It is truly a unique masterpiece. read more
Although their setting and mood are different (with OPM being a comedy and HnK being more tragic), both anime focus on an overpowered main character, who kills enemies almost effortlessly. Both have great art and over the top action.
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
01.similar stories about a hapless world where everything ruined
02.only the strong can survive "make it"
03.a lot of flesh and blood per episode
04.deadly fights btw good and evil
05.strong words "more adult"
06. Powerful heroes
07.love stories "very sad"
08.strongest ladies "they can lead an army"
09. Lot of sad moments "per episode"
10.demons and human demons like "God's army"
11.always they are ready to fight
12.large armies "mostly useless and run"
13.funny moments "waring, there is nothing funny about both"
14.classic animes with similar settings
15.similar atmospheres "very dark"
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
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.
