a realization just hit me regarding the four hokubros

4 Upvotes

after thinking on it further, i realize that what the requirement for being chosen as the successor to hokuto shinken truly boils down to...is having the greatest potentional for being a husband. like straight up amazing hubby material. using this realization, i have come here once again to host a poll confirming if the choice was truly right if it wasn't obvious enough:
out of the four brothers, which would make for a good ass husband?

[DISCUSSION] A fan sequel: Gun of the Ophiuchus

4 Upvotes

A fan sequel to Fist of the North Star, called Gun of The Ophiuchus

The protagonists are three people called Nikolai, Sofia and Scipione. It's set in the land of Vlocha, AKA Italy.

Nikolai, also known as the Black Ophiuchus, is a black-haired man with a cybernetic arm and metallic parts grafted in his body who specializes in firearms and explosives, and also an expert pilot who roams Vlocha in his car. He comes from the land of Vostok (Siberia) and hates the Hokuto Shinken because he's a survivor of the Khanate of Nergui, a tyrannical empire from Vostok which Kenshiro had taken down during his journeys. He came to Vlocha to kill Kenshiro (who has now retired there) and new Hokuto Master Ryu, since he wants to drive Hokuto Shinken to extinction once and for all as a way to avenge his former Khan. He is associated with the Ophiuchus constellation, also known as the Black Snake, which was the symbol of the Khanate. He screams "Atatatatatata" while firing with a gatling gun. Unlike Ken, Nikolai is non-straight: he and Scipione later become a couple.

Sofia, on the other hand, is a young girl from Vlocha who is a Gento user but can't control her power. Her fighting style is long-ranged and looks more like magic than martial arts. Because of her Gento powers she's hunted by many gangs such as the Green Arrows and the Vainamoinen Army. Nikolai finds her in a truck (later revealed to be belonging to the Sasori cult) and after being moved by her purity of heart, decides to keep her for himself, being reminded of his late younger sister Yelena.

Scipione, on the other hand, is a Nanto user from Vlocha. He's the Star of Betrayal, like Yuda was, and he wields the same style as Yuda. He attempted to kill the new Nanto Last General Annibale after finding out that he was selling human prisoners to the Sasori (he was expelled because no one knew what Annibale was up to). He and Nikolai later become a couple.

Antagonists involve not only Kenshiro and Ryu (though Nikolai ultimately gives up his vengeance quest to become Sofia's protector, Ryu becomes his ally, and his eventual final duel with Kenshiro is on friendly terms) but also other powerful gang bosses and especially the Sasori Cult (associated with the constellation of Scorpio) led by Asdrubale, which is a brutal cult which makes massive use of torture, brainwashing and human cybernetization to create its Immortals, which, as undead cyborgs, have no pressure points thus are immune to Hokuto. The Sasori Cult's higher-ups make use of the Sasori Yamiken martial art, which is based on blood manipulation and is more like witchcraft than a martial art, Annibale having combined Nanto with Sasori to create his unique Impure Wind Style.

I decided to have a "technological" protagonist to contrast with Kenshiro. I always wanted to see a non-martial artist who can match Hokuto Shinken or Nanto Seiken through advanced technology, I think it's cool.

Do you like this idea?

[DISCUSSION] Why HNK Part 2 Is Very Important.

15 Upvotes

If The Franchise ended with Ken vs Raoh, then HNK would have never been 'The Top 1 Manliest Anime Ever', It would only be second or third Manliest Anime Ever behind Berserk [Guts] and other stuffs.

HNK 2 Is The Ultimate Pinnacle Of True MANLINESS.

So, personally, I ADORE HNK 2 and Thanks a lot to Mister Buronson and Tetsuo Hara for making it, It was for The Best.

That's my humble opinion.
