You guys should actually watch it, the series is hysterical and Hokuto fans would eat up the humour. Trust me, you don't want a sequel to the original anime; the arcs in Hokuto no Ken 2 are bad enough, and the ones that follow them in the manga are even worse. It clearly shows that Buronson wanted to end it at Raoh because the writing takes a huge downturn after Raoh. People wanted more Hokuto after Raoh even though Buronson wanted to end it, and what you get are crappy hackneyed and contrived arcs that sully the franchise's credibility. Yes a modern remake of the first anime series (or again, up to the end of Raoh's arc) would be the optimal choice, but this is still good in its own right.

Interesting. Should be another kill time moment.

I'm getting pretty close to finishing the whole franchise and running out of Hokuto no Ken to watch. so it's too bad they're making another parody instead of another real HnK installment

Anything can be moe.


There are things that should never be moeified and this is one example, it's just there are so few things that are in this category people forget.

Then I looked at the premise of the new anime.
