Gambus Kahn Writes: Back in 1987, I was at a bookstore with my brother looking at science fiction magazines. I came across an ad for a brand new anime/Japanese animation movie called Fist of the North Star: The Movie. I remembered that the artwork of the muscular Kenshiro and the destroyed city behind him was on such an epic level that I immediately wanted to watch this gore-fest. However, it was perhaps five or so years before I would work my way back to North Star. I remembered that the movie was above average, but was infused with a cool ultra-violent charm that just put a smile on my face.
