Although Bobobo~bo Bo~bobo is more comedic and bizarre than Fist of the North Star,both shows have one thing in common : a mighty hero and young companions,one male,one female.

DarkStalkers

DarkStalkers

In the future, the world as we know it is inhabited by humans and Darkstalkers -- beings of the night who descended upon the planet and stole away the light of the sun. Discrimination is at an all time high, fueled by the tendencies of some Darkstalkers to prey upon the humans for their own desires. However, amongst the dark there are those who fight for good, such as the hybrid Donovan and two sisters who are out for revenge. With the coming of the ultimate demon Pyron, the humans and Darkstalkers must band together one last time to save the planet from his wrath...

Darkstalkers, based upon the fighting game of the same name, is mostly about action. Fist of the North Star is --all-- about action. As the name implies, fists will fly -- might want to watch out for the occasional exploding head, though.

Flame of Recca

Flame of Recca

Recca dreams of one day becoming an excellent ninja, but in this day and age ninjas are only talked about in history lessons. While playing his ninja games, he meets a mysterious woman that reveals to Recca his past, his bond with the powerful Hokage clan, and the special flame power that resides within him. Meanwhile, the evil Kurei has plans to gather the madougu from the Hokage clan so that he may take control over the elemental powers, but Recca is determined to master his flame and stop Kurei’s evil plans. Does he have what it takes to live up to his own expectations and put a stop to Kurei himself?

Like one "fight anime", like another? Not necessarly. At least this one tries to have a plot line... somewhat. But I still like it.. so shoot me.

Both animes share a very similar animation and character design if you enjoyed the animation in one you will surely like the other. They are also both fighting shows invloving extremely buff men. Hokuto no Ken focuses more on martial arts with head exploding moves while Otokojuku focuses more on delinquents beating each other up and showing "guts".
