I saw the television series on Encore Action. It had plenty of action and gore. I have also seen New Fist of the North Star on The Anime Network as well, and that was good, but I perfer the old television series.

Fist of the North Star is a great, classic anime series. You have to have a strong stomach to watch it--as it can be very over the top--but it has good action, atmosphere, and story drama. The Original Movie and Original Series are the best versions thus far. New versions have been and are being made, however.

It's a shame that Season 2 of the Original Series never made it to the US on DVD. I really wanted to see how Ken's journey continues after the encounters with Jagi and false-Toki. The story was building up nicely, and the Movie version doesn't tell the whole story (in fact, it's an alternate retelling; albeit an excellent one).
