It’s 1986 all over again as Crunchyroll has added another catalog title to their service thanks to their work with Discotek Media. The nearly two-hour film Fist of the North Star, which serves as a kind of compressed version of the original work, is now available in both its original Japanese language and English language adaptations. Since it’s licensed from Discotek Media, it’s streaming is only available for members in the US and Canada as that’s where Discotek’s rights are for.
Plot concept: In the near future, Earth has been devastated by a nuclear hell. In these troubled times, kinetic martial arts have replaced weapons of mass destruction, and the legendary Fist of the North Star style may then be the only hope for humanity’s survival. Ken, the rightful master of Fist of the North Star, is forced to fight old friends gone mad, wicked new enemies, and even comes face to face with his power hungry elder brothers. All this in the hope that he will someday be reunited with his beloved Julia.
