Synopsis

Kenshiro 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 read more

Recommendations

Anime: One Punch Man
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.

Anime: Captain Harlock
Both are recent remakes of older classic anime. They both focus on a manly protagonist, whose goal is to bring peace and freedom.

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: 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.
