The third chapter that should have never been made, 20 January 2004
Author: david-rf from Ancona, Italy

I'm a huge fan of Hokuto no Ken series since the early 80s and I was very disappointed when I saw this "Shin hokuto no ken". Everything seems made to be a mere marketing operation. The 3D scenes don't always match correctly with 2D, the animation is not so good, the plot is a bit boring and the new voice of Kenshiro is much worse than the original one by Akira Kamiya. And, the last but not the least, what's that horrible part of a samurai armor in Kenshiro's right shoulder? That's crap I say!
