a great 3 course meal but laking all the spices
24 August 2005 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I bought the 3 DVD set of Shin Hokuto no Ken and I liked what I saw. when I was young I was hooked on the fist of the north star after seeing the animated movie. I managed to get my hands on a few of the original series, but alas not all. So I was pleasantly surprised that there was a new series out. After watching all three DVD's back to back. I felt like just eating a great 3 course meal but my hunger wasn't stilled. The new series just lacks all of the spices the Animated movie and series had, although nothing was wrong with the graphics, some of the 3d animation were great to see but didn't really add something to the story or the overall of the new series.The story was just not that great, it was mediocre to say the least. It would be really great if they could get some great writers for this new series or guest-writers for each 3 series story. Lets just hope they don't mess this up.
