Good shows no one talks about , lets talk about them.
>>
>>162207882
/a/utists are too underage and too brainwashed by homosexual far left to like a manly show like Hokuto no Ken

what would you like to talk about OP? start the thread with a topic

where does he get so many same shirts from?
>>
>>162207882

Imagine a remake with the same style art style as David's Jojo

>>162208616
i think it just falls off most of the time , maybe it is just some red cloth , we never see ken without a jacket

no , that never happened and we all would like to forget about it

Since I've only read the manga of Hokuto no Ken does it end at Raoh's fight with Kenshiro or does it continue and do the chapters past that where Ken travels to the kingdom with Raoh's bastard child that is having a civil war between those brothers and the land of demons?
>>
>>162208833
sadly it continues , it really shouldn't tho
>>
>>162208798
did he die at the end
>>
>>162208847

I enjoyed some of the demon chapters to an extent but it all feels pointless after that. Especially the Bat-Ken-Lin love triangle, didn't even feel like that was built up and just felt forced.
>>
>>162208833
the anime stops with the hokuto land part , does not continue with raohs kid , and both those parts were unnecessary

But Han is cool
>>
>>162208874
just the first 108 episodes and don't watch anything after
>>
>>162208905
does not matter , the whole shura thing it was needless
>>
>It's another Ken's love interest pretend to be dead episode
>>
Reminder Raoh best character with Shin a close second and Souther arc was the best arc.
>>
>>162208971
agreed
>>
>>162208905
Han was cool because he had a bitchin castle, was entirely a new character, had his own unique personality and design and the fight between him and Ken was legitimately very well made.
Hyoh is literally a diet Toki palette swap and Kaioh is a diet Raoh palette swap which is why they're shit.
>>
>>162207882

>>162208833
Anime adapts all the way to end of Land of Asura arc, so Chapter 210.
The following chapters with Raoh's son, Ryu, and the amnesiac Ken epilogue are not adapted in the anime.
The videogame, Ken's Rage 2, which has the most complete story adaptation to date, also skipped the Ryu part but it did include the amnesiac Ken part by placing it right after Kaioh.
>>
why are we all talking about hokuto 2?
>>
>>162209082
Because it happened and it exists.
>>
>>162209093
nooooooooooo
>>
>>162209108
At least Kaioh had legitimately great introduction.

Where's the HnK2 characters?
>>
>>162209205
I haven't seen/read it

I finished HnK years ago but refused to watch 2
>>
>>162209186
I prefer Raoh over Toki, because he's more believeable.
Raoh is flawed perfection which makes him more relateable, Toki is literal perfection and also literally Jesus of the Postapocalypse, making him less believeable as a character.
>>
>>162207882
Fist of the North Star is literally nothing but "murderhobo kills madmax rejects with OP martial arts powers"

Ok for what it is but nothing worth discussing about it. It doesn't even have good fanart worth posting (unless you can prove me wrong).
>>
>>162209186
Something's fishy about that list.
>>
>>162209216
It's worth reading at least once, you're a retard that let memes control your opinion and are therefore unworthy of being called a human being, for you gave up your god given right of forming your own opinion.

That's a fair point, Raoh Vs. Toki is one of the best fights in the series due to the emotional weight it carries.
>>

>Fist of the North Star is literally nothing but "murderhobo kills madmax rejects with OP martial arts powers"
Congrats, you completely misunderstood the themes and story of the series and probably only watched the first 3 episodes or so.
Consider myself baited, fuck you.
>>
>>162209232
yeah jagi is in got tier and souther is in bad wtf
>>
>>162209216
All sequels and spin-offs are garbage save Fist of the Blue Sky

the first or the 2nd one?

Retard it is the epos the alt righ needs to follow
>>
>>162209263
Exactly!
>>
>>162209258
Nope read the entire series
What exactly are those themes?
>>
>>162209263
Read the Jagi manga
>>
>>162208858
Not if you believe.
>>
>>162209299
The one where Raoh cries, the second I believe?
>>
>>162209321
>Nope read the entire series
You clearly have not.

>What exactly are those themes?
What makes a man his family, bonds that transcend blood ties, camaraderie, love and what it means in many more ways than just between man and woman.
All these for starters you dipshit.
>>
>>162209352
that touched me in the pressure point
>>
>>162209370
>What makes a man his family, bonds that transcend blood ties, camaraderie, love and what it means in many more ways than just between man and woman.

so basically the themes of literally every battle shounen ever?
>>
>>162209299
When people refer to Toki vs Raoh they always mean their second fight, where Raoh cries manly tears.

>>162209393
>so basically the themes of literally every battle shounen ever?
10/10 bait, this is your last (You).
>>
>>162209186
jotaro is what people who din't watch hokuto think ken is
>>
>>162209401
you basically just defined "nakama"
>>
Kenshiro themes:

Sacrifice and no dont give me the same old story hirrrrrr dragonball does it because here people literally die for their ideala, They gouge out their own eyes, get cancer etc to protect the innocents

There is also hustice: Ken has a fair but iron fist, There is the theme Not to get attached too much to external beauty (Juda), posessions (Shin) or dogs (The dog babdit)

The theme of female and male role (Mamiya), Religious fanatics (Colonel), dictatorship and when to use it (Raoh) Genius and how to use your intelligence (Amimba) envy and frustration (Juda, Jagi) and many more
>>
>>162207882
Well I mean, Hokuto no Ken is pretty good but there isn't much to talk about it.
>>

>get cancer etc to protect the innocents
Toki has radiation poisoning, that's different from "cancer".
>>
>>162209686
Pretty sure He had lung cancer
>>
>>162209699
Pretty sure you didn't read the manga and never watched anime. The details of his illness are NEVER directly specified, it's just called "a terrible illness" but it's explicitly shown he stays behind for 2 weeks covered in radioactive ash which bleaches his hair and completely fucks him up.
Literally radiation sickness.
>>
>>162209686
I don't think the difference is that significant.

You're still going to die.

>>162208672
I wouldn't mind DP taking breaks from JoJo to adapt HnK. Sign me up.
>>
>>162209750
The difference is that radiation sickness is A LOT worse than cancer. You can get cancer, various kinds in fact, as a result of radiation poisoning but you can't get radiation poisoning as a result of cancer.
My point is that Toki's sacrifice was far greater than just "getting cancer".
I wouldn't wish radiation poisoning on my worst enemy.

wait
Does that mean you wish cancer on your worst enemies?
>>
>>162209743
>Pretty sure you didn't read the manga and never watched anime

I did and radiation can cause cancer, retard

>>162209557
I forgot about

Assisted suicide (Rei), the meaning of pain in the human condition and how to make it useful (Ken)

And other deep cosmological themes such as free will and destiny E.g: The frequent mentions of the "stars" predicting the feature, the character of the fighters or even their impending death
>>
>>162209830
>Does that mean you wish cancer on your worst enemies?
How do you even make such a retarded logic leap?

It was shit

Jagi was fun as an unapologetic asshole with no alliance, that's what made him stick out, only an hack would think it's a good idea to turn that in "uh i actually hate the world because i was good once but my gf was gangraped to death so i realized humanity is evil"
>>
>>162210148
yea, would be weird for someone who's gf died that way to then proceed to rape/pillage at will
>>
>>162209858
>Assisted suicide (Rei)
they gave him a house to die in , he was beyond saving
>>
>>162208616
If i Remember correctly he's good at sewing and repair them often

There was this one scene of him sewing his shit after one of the fights from what I remember, yeah.

The Ultimate Muscle anime was relatively mainstream, but most people (me included at the time) had no idea it was supposed to be a spinoff
>>
I never see Wolf's Rain get talked about here.

Don't know what the general consensus of the show is like here though. One of the first anime I watched and still think it's pretty good.

Although there is a large furry fanbase behind it.
