Fist of the North Star 2′s a mixed bag. I like the suspense and atmosphere of the Shura arc, but it really piles on unnecessary retcons and dumb twists that are making the backstory a mess (not to say FOTNS 1 didn’t do this to, but it wasn’t as bad).
However it does have one really stupid awesome thing going for it. Kenshiro basically fights Anime versions of famous American/European celebrities of the 80s.
God damn it, the whole fucking platoon’s dropping like flies! What the hell are you staring at? Do you have any idea what it’s like out there? Do you? Well, I’m fighting this thing, man, it’s like kick ass, or kiss ass, and I’m busting heads! It’s the only way to win this fucking war. And these shitheads, these yellow traitoring motherfuckers. They’re everywhere. And I, Sergeant Andrew Scott of the US Army, I’m gonna teach ‘em all. Sergeant Andrew Scott ▲ Universal Soldier, 1992.
