It was epic and beautiful. Just wish there was an hd version that's all.
30 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

I'm a huge fan of the Hokuto no Ken series and I have seen every episode. So to my understanding this is a prequel to Fist of the North Star movie. The story was well paced and some of the characters were unique and annoying which isn't a problem. Kenshiro the main man learns what he needs to do in order to have a brighter future ahead for the rest of the generation in this journey. After watching this I actually cried because of the sad stuff that happens. If you love Manga or anime and are not familiar with this series give this movie a go and it'll sink in and you will be hooked on this magnificent series. P.S. great soundtrack.
