Whichever side you're on, you can't deny that Fist of The North Star is satisfying to watch. Fact is, the world would be a much better place if martial artists like Kenshiro actually existed. Kenshiro represents something truly fictional; kindness towards good but weak people, and extreme cruelty towards strong and bad people. In the world we live in, particularly in the typical american high school, its the other way around. Sad thing is, if a martial artist like Kenshiro actually existed and executed his brand of justice on evil people, he would be demonized by the media because the more powerful, fortunate and cruel among us would be threatened by him. I guess that, despite the fact that the voice acting is terrible, the animation horrible, and the effects downright cheezy, people love this move because Kenshiro represents an impossible ideal.
