Fist of the North Star: The TV Series Complete Series Collection 2 Anime DVD Review

With the second set Kenshiro begins his search for his older adopted brother Toki. The tragedy of the day that the nuclear war begins is shown in Toki’s sacrificing himself for Kenshiro and Yuria despite him having been the superior candidate to the successor of Hokuto Shinken. Toki’s sacrifice cursed him with an illness and shorter life span with which he chose to use his skills to heal others. Hearing this story motivates Kenshiro’s allies to try to find Toki and Mamiya sets out on a journey alone to try to find some news. Kenshiro and Rei catch up with her and discover where Toki is and the three set out to find him. The journey will not be easy as Toki is imprisoned in a city/prison called Cassandra which has been built by a man known as Ken-Oh who seeks to become the ruler of the age. To that end he has taken to capturing martial artists and stealing their techniques in order to bolster his abilities. Kenshiro and company’s arrival is met by those who guard the prison and enforce Ken-Oh’s will with the various methods they will attempt to employ as Ken-Oh has declared that Kenshiro and Toki must never meet. Kenshiro will discover that hope can be a powerful force as can despair in the living hell on Earth. As the group travels back to Mamiya’s village a glimpse into the past is shown regarding Kenshiro and his oldest brother Raoh. The two fought for succession of Hokuto Shinken and the love of Yuria with Raoh coming out the loser on both fronts. While the past is being reveled foreshadows of events are also taking place as some of Kenshiro’s closest allies notice a small star next to the North Star-a star which is said to only appear to those who will die within a year.
