199X: The classic opening from Hakuto no Ken (Fist of the North Star) was performed by Crystal King. Funnily “Ai Wo Torimodose” translates into “Take Back the Love”. Unfortunately, those that face the Fist of the North Star can’t take back anything, because they are already dead.
(Watch the show, you will understand)
Really, if you haven’t seen this show yet, at least watch the movie version. The main character, Kenshiro, is basically a fusion of Bruce Lee and Sylvester Stallone. Ken practices the ancient killing art of Hakuto no Ken, which basically can make peoples’ heads’ explode. Set in a post apocalyptic world reminiscent of Mad Max, its good times for all.
I will be revisiting some of these older OP/ED classics here, every other Thursday, as they come to mind. Please leave any suggestions in the comments.
If you want to listen to an op/ed that’s a little more angsty, but just as classic, please check out my previous OP of the Day:
Jonuiuc is an occasional contributor of writing and photography on TAY and AniTAY. You will most likely see him in the comment sections of other articles, contributing to collaborations, or doing short posts (like this one) that are light on graphics and even lighter on editing. Jon doesn’t always like ATATATATATATAT!, he just likes what he likes.
