Watch Fist Of The North Star

In the world of Fist of the North Star, society has crumbled after nuclear war wiped most of the planet's life, leaving humanity to live a Darwinian existence. The protagonist, Kenshiro, is introduced as he comes across a village while seeking water. This proves to be a trap, and the town's militia imprisons him. While jailed, Kenshiro makes friends with Lin, an orphan who helped him regain his strength.

Soon, a gang of biker thugs arrive and take Lin as a captive. This enrages Kenshiro, who easily breaks free, defeating the gang's boss using his signature fighting style of Hokuto Shinken. With the village free to govern itself again, Kenshiro leaves the village, albeit with the thief "Bat" tagging along. As Kenshiro and Bat continue their journey, they come up against the villainous KING organization several times.

Eventually, Ken infiltrates the KING organization's stronghold. It is here that Kenshiro learns that its leader is none other than his nemesis Shin; master of the Nanto Seiken style. Kenshiro's vendetta against Shin stems from Shin being the one to leave the scars across Kenshiro's chest as well as capturing his girlfriend, Yuria. Kenshiro eventually has a showdown with Shin. While he handily defeats Shin, Kenshiro also discovers that Yuria isn't with him.

Kenshiro continues wandering, fighting more corrupt groups and even gaining a few more allies, including Lin. Ken also learns that his three fellow brothers within Hokuto Shinken style are still-living and so sets off to find them. Of these "brothers," Jagi proves to be nothing more than a brute who torments Kenshiro for becoming the style's successor. Jagi is swiftly defeated by Kenshiro.

While seeking out Brother Toki, who happens to be a peaceful healer, Kenshiro discovers that Toki is imprisoned within a dungeon city named Cassandra. During the rescue of Toki, Kenshiro learns that the eldest Brother, Raoh, is now a sadistic warlord. Raoh rules as the tyrant "Ken-oh" and is seeking to conquer the entire world. Kenshiro realizes he must defeat his eldest brother to preserve global peace.

Fist Of The North Star Full Episode Guide

  • After saving Lin and Hyoh, the North Star Army rushes towards the place where the ferocious battle between Kenshiro and Kaioh is unfolding. Kaioh has cast off his armor and fights desperately using his evil fighting spiritual energy, while Kenshiro shows that he has the advantage by far. But Kaioh, who can't even hurt him with his evil fighting spiritual energy now, borrows his mother's strength for one final blow! Kaioh gets sent flying into the sky by a geyser erupting from beneath the grave, and when he swoops down upon Kenshiro, Kenshiro's fist slams into him! Can the history of fate that has laste since the era of the main family of the North Star be put to rest, at long last!?

  • Kaioh's fist no longer has any effect on Kenshiro. In contrast to the North Star Lapis Lazuli Fist, whose style has already been perfected and has no further progress, the Divine Fist of the North Star is a style which continues to constantly evolve on the battlefield. Thus, by using the hidden technique Kenshiro acquired, the art to deflect the North Star Lapis Lazuli Fist, it is rendered completely ineffective. Seeing his chances of winning slipping away, Kaioh casts off the armor he wears to contain his evil fighting spiritual energy, and goes all-out in a last ditch battle! Meanwhile, Black Yaksha meets his end protecting Lin, and Hyoh is in dire peril once more! But then, some unexpected backup arrives...!!

  • Kenshiro and Kaioh's deadly struggle continues. But Kenshiro is put in dire peril when his body becomes paralyzed by gas in a cave beneath the Swamp of Demon. Meanwhile, learning of the destructive point hit on Lin, the Asuras go after her. Danger draws closer and closer to Lin as she begins to regain consciousness. Will Hyoh make it in time!? In the midst of battle, Kenshiro learns that Kaioh also bears the blood of the main family of the North Star. There is a story behind that, a tragic tale about the main family of the North Star from before the Divine Fist of the North Star was founded...

  • Because of the destructive point that Kaioh hit, when Lin wakes up, she may very well fall in love with the first person she sees, regardless of whom it may be. Kenshiro, shaking with rage, fights with Kaioh. Realizing Lin's peril, Hyoh once more overstrains his heavily injured body to save Lin... What is the disgrace Hyoh speaks of, that twisted Kaioh as a child!? And what of the feelings Raoh told Kenshiro that he had towards Kaioh!?

  • The place Kaioh chooses for a showdown is the Swamp of Demon, a place teeming with evil fighting spiritual energy, and the place where his evil began. Leia gives Kenshiro Shachi's protector as a memento, and Kenshiro sets foot into the swamp alone. There, the tragic past of Kaioh and Raoh's mother, and Kenshiro and Hyoh's mother, is revealed! Then, right before the battle, Kaioh hits a destructive point on Lin! What terrifying effect will it have...!?

  • Shachi is believed to have already died fighting Kaioh to protect Leia. But the female visages in the Holy Temple of Asura create a mysterious resonance, and with tears in his eyes, Shachi rises again. Even as heavily overwhelmed as he had been, he launches a counterattack so ferocious that it even shocks Kaioh. It all comes from the power of love... Kaioh, now convinced that the main family's ultimate technique is love, seeks to prove the superiority of the North Star Lapis Lazuli Fist that he uses for his evil ultimate art.

  • Hyoh regains his memories, and upon hearing of Hyoh's reconciliation with Kenshiro, Kaioh does a complete about-face. Heavy with anger towards Shachi at having made their reconciliation possible, Kaioh orders the Asuras to hunt Shachi down. Meanwhile, Hyoh has recovered from the worst of his injuries, and tells Kenshiro and Shachi that there is a hidden technique sealed within the Holy Temple of Asura, the sanctum of the main family of the North Star. Leia and Lin's love opens the way to the hidden technique's hiding place, and underground, under the watchful gaze of female visages, Kaioh and Shachi do battle...

  • Hyoh's evil fighting spiritual energy has vanished! But his memories haven't completely returned. His mind clouded with memories of his childhood departure from Kenshiro, Hyoh turns his fist upon Kenshiro once more. Shachi senses danger and finally acts. As Kenshiro catches a glimpse of tears in Hyoh's eyes, his fist slackens, and to save him, he rushes Hyoh from behind! Then the defeated Hyoh says something unexpected...

  • In the midst of Kenshiro and Hyoh's back-and-forth battle, when Kenshiro hits a pressure point, Hyoh uses an evil art to gouge out his own flesh where the pressure point is located. With the battle between Kenshiro and Hyoh, Kaioh is more confident than ever in the North Star Lapis Lazuli Fist's new century. When he has Lin brought before him, Kaioh's real face surfaces amidst his evil fighting spiritual energy. His face bears an eerie resemblance to Raoh's... Of course it would - Kaioh is Raoh's older brother!

  • Kenshiro's group hears that Hyoh is exploiting villagers to bring back the birthplace of the North Star Lapis Lazuli Fist, the Holy Temple of Asura, from the bottom of a swamp. Kenshiro faces off with Hyoh, who has gone there and turned into a demon. While Kenshiro senses that Hyoh is his elder brother, Hyoh's memories remain sealed and lost, and Hyoh, seeing Kenshiro only as Sayaka's murderer, is consumed anew with vengeance. When Kaioh hears reports of the fighting, he lets out resounding laughter at how smoothly things are going for him.

  • Having ventured into the dark world, Hyoh's personality becomes evil and twisted. Upon seeing how he had changed, his adoring, devoted Vice General Nagato is stricken with unbearable grief. Nagato encounters Shachi and Kenshiro, both heavily injured from fighting Kaioh. Despite their positions as enemies, Nagato senses something heart-stirring in Kenshiro's eyes, and hides the two of them in his house...

  • Kaioh kills his own younger sister, Sayaka, and spreads word that Kenshiro is the one behind it. Hyoh is consumed by powerful hatred. Kaioh schemes to bring the main family of the North Star to an end. Right in the middle of the funeral for Sayaka being held in Kaioh's castle, an Asura named Gyoko's battle train crashes in. Gyoko, rolling in front of Kaioh, bears a message from Kenshiro: I am never defeated twice! Hyoh, believing that Kenshiro killed Sayaka, is consumed in powerful hatred upon hearing that, and takes his first step towards the dark world...

  • Shachi finally brings Kenshiro to a safe haven. Around that time, Commander of Asura Kain, having received instructions to search for Shachi and Kenshiro, sets about his search in hopes of attaining the coveted position of third general. The cabin where Shachi arrived finally gets searched, but due to poor timing, the only one there is the cabin's elderly caretaker. Asura henchmen intrude inside... Meanwhile, in order to draw Hyoh to the dark world, Kaioh takes his own younger sister by blood, Sayaka.

  • Shachi is determined to protect Kenshiro, whom he believes to be the savior. He continues his journey, disguising himself as a rag and hiding Kenshiro in a coffin. Kaioh is consumed with fear of Kenshiro's limitless potential, and instructs his henchmen to search for Lin. For her part, after getting swallowed by underground currents, Lin is rescued by Kaioh's younger sister, Sayaka. Meanwhile, heavily scarred by the killing of Jukei, Hyoh seeks out Sayaka to mend his wounds, but...

  • Kenshiro bears heavy damage from his fight with Kaioh. Under the pretext of giving Akashachi a burial at sea, Shachi seeks to withdraw and give Kenshiro a chance to heal. Kaioh returns to prevent that, and as Shachi's group starts down the waterway, Kaioh once again appears before them! Is this the end of the line!? Shachi is ready to throw in the towel, but suddenly, Kaioh's evil fighting spiritual energy gets extinguished. Kenshiro, whose pulse should have stopped, stands before them...

  • Having lost to Kaioh, Kenshiro is cruelly crucified. Shachi watches protectively from the shadows, but then challenges Kaioh, who wields a superior North Star Lapis Lazuli Fist, to a direct confrontation. However, Shachi doesn't stand a chance against him. Just as Kaioh is about to deliver the finishing blow to Shachi, Akashachi showers him in concentrated sulfuric acid, stalling him long enough to rescue Kenshiro and Shachi. Lin gets swept out of sight in the current... And Akashachi, while trying to finish Kaioh off, meets his end at Kaioh's hands.

  • Kenshiro loses badly to Kaioh. Even Ken's ultimate technique, the Unconcious Transmigration, doesn't seem to slow Kaioh down. Kaioh declares that the sealed memories which only Hyoh knows are the only key to defeating him in existence. Meanwhile, Jukei struggles to bring back the old, compassionate Hyoh, the one who thought strongly of his younger brother as a child, and stubbornly refused to ever divulge the location of the hidden technique. To do this, he stakes his own life upon hitting a destructive point: Jukei's ultimate destructive point. This goes beyond his expectations and drastically transfigures Hyoh's...

  • Jukei seeks to restore Hyoh's sealed-off memories, and draw out the "Key" to destroying the North Star Lapis Lazuli Fist, the primary thing Kenshiro would need to win against Kaioh. Kenshiro and Hyoh belong to the main family of the North Star, and Hyoh was the only person to learn the location of the hidden technique. But even after coming to terms with reality, no technique seems to be able to break the seal on his memories. Meanwhile, Kenshiro, in his quest to rescue Lin, sets foot in Kaioh's castle...

  • Seeking to become the third general of Asura, Gammon, Asura of Sasori, takes Rock's group hostage in order to ambush Kenshiro. Kenshiro sees the suffering in Rock's eyes, and springs the trap deliberately in order to draw the real culprit, Gammon, out.

  • With Raoh's legend in shambles, tyranny and brutal suppression of revolts has grown worse than ever. Kosem's son Rock, believing Raoh would come, returned to his village with the intent of joining the uprising, but is horror-stricken upon finding out about the death of his father and the collapse of Raoh's legend. Rock decides to carry on Raoh's legend himself, and gathers fellow soldiers to form Raoh's Army. They boldly dare to challenge the Asuras, but...

  • Due to Shachi's scheming, Kenshiro's presence becomes known all across the land as "Raoh's invasion." The Asuras cower, and the people eagerly await liberation. Relieved to hear this, Jukei tells of his past... He taught the three generals of Asura the North Star Lapis Lazuli Fist, and led to the creation of the Land of Asura. Furthermore, this Land of Asura was Raoh and Kenshiro's birthplace...

  • While watching Kenshiro and Han's fight from the sidelines, Shachi reflects upon how in this land, one must be strong to survive. After apprenticing himself to an old master of the North Star Lapis Lazuli Fist, Shachi decided to become a devil, in direct opposition to his lover Leia, who preached the value of love. He refined his skill under Jukei, who claimed that one day a savior would bring change to this land. But the name of the savior Jukei spoke of turns out to be Raoh!

  • Shachi takes Lin to general of Aura Han's castle, seeking to use Kenshiro to wear down Han for an easy defeat. In the guise of a rag, Shachi offers Lin up to Han as a pretense to get close to him. Han already sees through Shachi's disguise, and the two quickly resort to battle, though Shachi opts to make a hasty retreat after confirming Han's strength for himself. Meanwhile, Kenshiro is already inside Han's castle...

  • Shachi is a wielder of the North Star Lapis Lazuli Fist. His goal is to overthrow the three generals of Asura who rule the Land of Asura. Meanwhile, Kenshiro meets Shachi's former lover, Leia, who tells him to kill Shachi, now steeped in evil. Shachi is stopped during his pursuit. In a fight between Kaizel, who can steal a man's insides without damaging his exterior, and Shachi, what will the outcome be!?

  • Alph of the Hourglass, an Asura permitted to bear a name, won a battle between Asuras, and in doing so won the right to take Lin. He is charged with eliminating Kenshiro, and uses his poison cape to paralyze Kenshiro and pummel him with attacks. However, the one who lost when two minutes pass turns out to be Alph. Meanwhile, Lin is taken away by Shachi, a wielder of the North Star Lapis Lazuli Fist.

  • Falco was defeated by a nameless Asura due to losing his artificial leg in the middle of battle. For the sake of his honor, Falco challenges the Asura to a rematch. To deal with the Asura, who burrows underground, Falco uses the Ruinous Freezing Yellow Threat Stance to freeze the surface of the ground, then waits for the Asura to pop up. With Falco throwing himself into the fight fully ready to die, can his Imperial Fist of the Source Star take down the Asura...!?

  • Lin is taken to a land beyond the Sea of Dead, "The Land of the Asura." In this land where might determines everything, there exists a style called the North Star Lapis Lazuli Fist. Kenshiro, crossing the sea in a pirate ship, learns that the ship's captain, the one-eyed, one-armed, one-legged Akashachi, once raided the Land of Asura, but was forced to flee and left his son behind. Upon arriving at the Land of the Asura, the first thing he sees is Falco, collapsed and gravely wounded by an Asura.

  • Because of the destructive point that Kaioh hit, when Lin wakes up, she may very well fall in love with the first person she sees, regardless of whom it may be. Kenshiro, shaking with rage, fights with Kaioh. Realizing Lin's peril, Hyoh once more overstrains his heavily injured body to save Lin... What is the disgrace Hyoh speaks of, that twisted Kaioh as a child!? And what of the feelings Raoh told Kenshiro that he had towards Kaioh!?

  • The place Kaioh chooses for a showdown is the Swamp of Demon, a place teeming with evil fighting spiritual energy, and the place where his evil began. Leia gives Kenshiro Shachi's protector as a memento, and Kenshiro sets foot into the swamp alone. There, the tragic past of Kaioh and Raoh's mother, and Kenshiro and Hyoh's mother, is revealed! Then, right before the battle, Kaioh hits a destructive point on Lin! What terrifying effect will it have...!?

  • Kenshiro's group hears that Hyoh is exploiting villagers to bring back the birthplace of the North Star Lapis Lazuli Fist, the Holy Temple of Asura, from the bottom of a swamp. Kenshiro faces off with Hyoh, who has gone there and turned into a demon. While Kenshiro senses that Hyoh is his elder brother, Hyoh's memories remain sealed and lost, and Hyoh, seeing Kenshiro only as Sayaka's murderer, is consumed anew with vengeance. When Kaioh hears reports of the fighting, he lets out resounding laughter at how smoothly things are going for him.

  • Having lost his trump card, the Celestial Emperor, Jakoh is left naked and alone. Abandoned by his henchmen, he gets obliterated by a furious Falco. The joy of peace returning is short-lived, though. It is found out that Taiga of the Green Light has taken Lin and is trying to cross the Sea of Death. Ein's life leaves a powerful impression on Kenshiro, and Kenshiro grows determined to pursue Taiga. A new battle is just beginning to unfold...

  • Kenshiro and Falco, both much worse for wear, are put in dire peril by Jakoh's cowardly schemes. Having already sustained heavy damage all over, both men come under fire from Jakoh's gigantic spears! Lin's group desperately seeks to escape from their cave quickly in order to tell Falco and Kenshiro that they have no more reason to fight. Ein hammers into an iron stake with his fist until breaking through to a water vein, and the underground water pressure lets them escape. The punch he stakes his life on finally creates a miracle!

  • As the battle between Kenshiro and Falco heats up, Lin senses the Celestial Emperor's voice. The group falls into a trap set by Jakoh and falls deep underground. There, they discover Celestial Emperor Lui. Lin and Lui turn out to be twin sisters. As it turns out, in accordance with the law that there may only be one Celestial Emperor, Falco was ordered by Jakoh to eliminate the infant Lin, but he secretly saved her...

  • Jakoh decrees to Falco that if he wants to save the Celestial Emperor, he must strike down Kenshiro. Reasoning that if he lost to Kenshiro, Jakoh would pin all the blame on the Celestial Emperor and make a break for it, Falco hands one of his loyal henchmen and his lover Myu the detonator switch to a bomb in the Imperial Capital, then sets out for battle. Finally, the stage is set for a major confrontation between him and Kenshiro!

  • The North Star Army is joined by Ein, now a former bounty hunter, and the seasoned general Rihaku. They set out for the Imperial Capital. Rihaku speaks of Falco's past. Falco, who held his own against Raoh, once sacrificed his own leg to save a town. Meanwhile, inside the Imperial Capital, General Shoki of the Red Light sparks a revolt against Jakoh.

  • Going on the justification that if Ken spared his life, he couldn't be that bad of a guy, Bat accepts Ein's invitation to join forces, and the two capture an area by themselves. But that would lead to tragedy, as the commander of the area they captured, Beron, abducts Ein's girl, Asuka, in vengeance. Ein's "lady love" turns out to be a little girl! What is their relation? And what is Ein's reason for fighting?

  • The North Star's leader must be eliminated... But Lin was once saved a long time ago. Feeling chagrin at this twist of fate, Falco is ready to eliminate Lin regardless. Witnessing this, the criminal Harn brothers urge the boy guarding them to break the concrete holding them imprisoned. They turn out to be successors to one of the 108 styles of the South Star that Falco slaughtered, the South Star Twin Hawk Fist.

  • Awaiting the North Star Army is a general of the Celestial Emperor Army, the strongest practitioner of the Imperial Fist of the Source Star, Golden Falco. He singlehandedly routs the entire North Star Army. In exchange for sparing all of their lives, he demands the death of their leader. Bat tries to protect Lin by claiming he is their leader, but Falco sees right through it and identifies Lin as the true leader. What is the tie that binds Falco and Lin!?

  • With Kenshiro finally joining forces with the North Star Army, everyone in the army feels strongly reassured. In the meantime, reports of Kenshiro reach the area commander Geira. Ein, a bounty hunter coming to claim a bounty, hears from Geira that the price on Kenshiro's head is staggering, boasts loudly that he'll defeat him.

  • Lin and Bat go undercover, but henchmen of the area commander, Bask, capture an innocent boy and girl after mistaking them for Lin and Bat. The callous Bask seeks to execute the girl as an example. Lin and Bat, ready to give up their lives, reveal themselves out in the open. Then, a man suddenly appears... Kenshiro, riding Raoh's beloved steed Kokuoh!

  • The "Drifter" saved by Haru rests up at a bar where Haru works. Then comes Geld, a Celestial Emperor Army executioner. He took great pleasure in hunting down the remnants of the "Red Dragon Party" that once stood in revolt against the Celestial Emperor. Haru tries to defeat Geld, even if it means suicide for himself, but then the drifter pulls off his cloak, revealing Kenshiro, successor to the Divine Fist of the North Star!

  • Bat is now a brave young man, and Lin has grown into a beautiful woman. Together, they found the North Star Army, to save the people suffering under Jakoh and the Celestial Emperor's tyranny. But leading an army of greenhorns turns out to be an uphill battle fraught with peril. They continue to await the return of Kenshiro, the savior of legend. Rumors spread far that Ken is dead. Meanwhile, in a poor, squalid village, a "drifter" appears, looking haggard. That drifter is saved by a young boy named Haru, who hasn't lost his sense of justice or compassion even when living in a poor village.
