"New Fist of the North Star": My Mind Is Already Blown

Longtime American anime fans may recall that domestic distributors built their business on the backs of a few key franchises, usually featuring over-the-top violence. One such franchise was Fist of the North Star (Hokuto no Ken), which was a natural choice since it packed all kinds of brutality and had been a big hit in Japan, both as a manga and an anime. However, with the exception of one horrible live action film, the franchise has been silent from the mid 80s onward. Ken is silent no more. Martial arts fury returns in 2004 with the three-part OAV series New Fist of the North Star.
