Set several years after the original series, Kenshiro returns to the battlefield when his former travelling companions Bat and Lin, now leaders of the Hokuto Army, are at war with the corrupt Celestial Empire controlled by Jakoh. Kenshiro faces against the masters of Gento Koken, who are being coerced to do Jakoh's evil bidding. The setting later changes to the ancient Land of Shura, the birthplace of the Hokuto, Nanto and Gento styles, where Kenshiro must face agaisnt the masters of the Hokuto Ryuken style, a style derived from the same clan as Kenshiro's Hokuto Shinken.
I was hoping this anime would have a more complex purpose-driven plot to it. Unfortunately, it was more of a copy and paste plot of the first show. Save oppressed people. Save the girl and beat up the super strong bad guys that everyone else isn't willing to face. ***Spoiler alert*** I felt like the previous anime did a good enough job explaining the three or four core "brothers" relationship. I didn't like the addition of the island and the blood brother. It felt like that was pulled out of a hat. I also wish Bat and Lin contributed more to the fighting and story since they grew up so much. ***On a side note- Kenshiro doesn't seem to age at all*** Bat and Lin were useful in the army before Ken, but they soon turned into useless tokens. This is an average anime. 5/10. If you really liked the first fist of the north star, there is probably a 50-50 chance that you will like this one. If you thought the first F.o.t.n.s. was just ok or slightly above average, steer clear of this one.
