By David L. Neidhardt on November 9, 2004
This 2nd installation of New Fist of the North Star also rocks. It also leaves me hungry for more, and nothing short of my demise shall prevent me from buying the next one!

In this episode we see Kenshiro about to embark on a quest which only he can see through. He must save a life, the life of the young Lord Doha. He must obtain a life-saving serum by traversing a path towards danger. Without spoiling the plot, suffice it to say he will be pitted against deadly foes of a familiar and surprising nature. There are revelations, the introduction of a new foe, and something disturbing happens to Sara.

I highly reccommend this series, and this dvd. The outstanding visuals, storyline, and action are awesome! And don't forget, this stars Kenshiro! The Fist of the North Star returns!

If it is allowed I'd like to mention my recent acquisition of the complete entire series of the original Fist of the North Star. The original, all 152 glorious episodes! Despite the poor translation, I highly reccommend this for FOTNS fanatics like myself. Find out what happened to Bart and Lynn! Did Yulia really die? and who is The Fist King? find out. Purchase these dvd's if you can find them.

Fist of the North Star gave birth to so many fighting animes. To have a sequal in a sense released years later also shows just how epic the first experience was. of course the same can be said about Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z, but they also gear themselves towards a wider audience. This anime is clearly aiming at an older audience as the main character won't let you live if you're a bad guy.

So this kind of like episode 2 out of 3 and continues the action of the new series. So it's a continuation. I'm not sure who might end up reading this review so I have decided not to tell write what this volume is about, but to say if you enjoy fighting animes and are of a more mature audience then you will probably enjoy this series. I really recommend watching them in order and as I explained before this is volume 2 of the series so I suggest you look for volume 1 first before deciding to just get this one. It's not ultra rare at the moment at least.

Also if you like this series and our new to Hokuto no Ken "Fist of the North Star", I recommend watching the original series. You can enjoy this one without having seen it, but you will better understand the main character if you do. New boxsets of the original are supposed to be coming out sometime in June by Discotek. It will have both Japanese and English audio.
