The 1986 animated movie version of Fist of the North Star is an interesting beast. It's not quite a compilation of the TV series. It's a retelling with entirely new animation. At times softened for violent content animation, but new animation nevertheless. I wanted to review this because I wanted to cover the franchise, but wasn't about to watch the 36 episodes of the TV series that were dubbed. I wanted to show everything that I like and dislike about this franchise and I think I accomplished that.
