Great show, standard def no high def on Blu Ray

by -

Does this have higher video/audio quality than the DVDs? NO. It is literally the files for the DVDs using new BD menus.

This is STANDARD DEFINITION on Blu Ray. This is NOT high definition in any way. That's how they've crammed 50-51-51 episodes on each disc. Yes. 152 episodes on 3 discs.

Why would someone buy this? It takes up less than 15% of the space the DVD sets do. In other words, it is a shelf space saver.

The only reason I can see for buying the DVDs over this is if you really need to have the artwork on the covers. Otherwise, the BD release is the way to go. Obviously, you can't go BD if you only have a DVD player as well.

As for the show, it's a violent classic that as long as you enjoy 1980s era animation and stories, it is worth seeing.

Classic old school manly anime, lots of exploding heads.

by

This is an old school otoko anime from the 80's. It is for manly men who like seeing heads explode and lots of muscles. Kenshiro is the last successor to an ancient assassination martial art known as Hokuto shinken(The fist of the North Star). Something went wrong with the world and there was a nuclear fall out, now the surviving peaceful humans are preyed on by those who rule by strength. Kenshiro has had his woman kidnapped by his former friend Shin who loves her as well. Shin is a master of the assassin art Nanto Seiken (The fist of the South Star) and he believes might makes right in this new world. Now Ken must search for his lover Yulia while battling hordes of shin's minions.

If you like over the top violence, hilarious ways of dying and you feel like rooting for the good assassinating hero to save his damsel in distress, then you will Love fist of the north star. Just be warned this is an old anime so prepare yourself for that look and style.

Ain't nobody got time for all them DVDs!

by

Condensing this series into three Blurays is precisely what I've been WAITING for this generation of disc based media to do, but haven't seen done properly until now. Excellent value, and much better than trying to juggle discs around in that old case. Soon as I heard this was coming out, I sold that DVD instantly.

Even though it's SD it honestly looks pretty great! On a smaller display from a good distance, of course.

There is one quirk that's important to note: It does not play back properly on any PS4 model. I've tried Slim, OG, and Pro PS4 models, and the video has a constant, nonstop jittering issue. Disappears when put into any other bluray player ever. Thought it might be a SD Bluray issue, but I've got AVGN X which is also SD, and have no issues with that at all. So, weird.

Partial finished product

by

1/5 of the show is actually dubbed. i wont buy a unfinished product, so it may be a deal breaker for many as well. Other then that the show it self was good to the final dubbed episode.

Good seris! Great value! Respectfull towards dub and sub!

by

This is a classical anime and it's going to look a little out dated and the plot a little redundant but it's still fun and has a lot of action!

The blu ray itself is amazing! All the dub episodes released are here (it only ever went to thirty something) and all the 152 episodes subbed are here. They even fixed the openings and episode previews that the dub didn't have by leaving it subtitled. They even have the original dub op/ending in the menu. Honestly, this is a fantastic way to own a 152 episode series.
