Anime of the Past: Fist of the North Star (Part 1)

oprainfall writes: “Fist of the North Star is a martial arts anime series that began airing on Japanese television in 1984. Based on the manga by Buronson and Tetsuo Hara, it was produced by Toei Animation and ran for a total of 109 episodes. The series was immediately continued with a sequel that stretched another 43 episodes, for a total of 152. Of that total number, only the first 36 were originally released on western shores in an official capacity in 1999. It wasn’t until very recently that the entire series officially became available for western audiences. Because of the show’s length, we’ll be discussing Fist of the North Star in four parts, so let’s start by taking a look at those first thirty-six episodes.”

This is my all time favorite anime. A main character that shows no mercy. I know too many main characters that will kill these days.
