Hokuto no Ken: Ichigo Aji
I honestly hate this so much. They basically took an exciting story, which was a quite serious one with a lot of action, and they turned it into some kind of cheap comedy story.
I am not a fan of the artwork. I have no idea which studio(s) created this and I honestly don’t want to know. Is it just me or do some of the characters look extremely gay? Wait. Don’t tell me. I don’t even want to know. The animation is simply mediocre at best.
There are several types of comedy. You have slapstick comedy, gag comedy and many other varieties of comedy. This is arguably one of the worst kinds. They took a good story and they turned it into this. Unacceptable.
I won’t watch this and I see no reason why I should tell people to do otherwise. It’s a waste of my time to watch a comedy when it’s just not funny.
Plot Summary: Serving as a spinoff gag manga of the original Hokuto no Ken series, the story is a parody of Fist of the North Star by Buronson and Tetsuo Hara. It consists of page-long gags centered mainly on Souther, both within his final battle with Kenshiro and inserting himself into other parts of the series where he doesn’t belong. One recurring gag involves the kid with a turban repeatedly stabbing Souther in the leg every time he climbs the pyramid’s staircase, and another involves Rei suddenly transforming into Souther in his iconic moments.
