The image of a Hong Kong trucker who proudly displayed his manliness by plastering the truck window with Fist Of The North Star pictures made tears roll freely down my cheeks and then eventually, down my rippling pectorals.
This reminded me of all the Hokuto No Ken related stuff I wanted to mention over the months.
Check out this awesome French re-enactment of a scene from the theatrical version of Fist Of The North Star.
The Korean Live Action version, "Fistful of Stars".
I love the live action Shin. He looks about as threatening as an old cabbage patch doll I found my neighbours dog raping.
Heart Of Madness on American Idol!?!?
Now, onto the Japanese pranks!
And my new favourite, (which we didn't mention) "Magical Ojisan". Trust me, watch it all the way and then you'll know why it's the best.
Incase you missed it, here's the pranks we posted before. We now have a new label; "Japanese Pranks". So, in future you should be able to find these pretty easily.
We mostly chat about Japanese pranks and Fist Of The North Star, unsuprisingly.
We got quite a lot this week, including a new one from "Mana Wannabe", who coincidently, I've come across in this vast cyberspace before. You can visit her awesome page here. If you like Gothic-Lolita stuff, you'll especially enjoy it.
H.264 rears it's awful head again care of that lovable rouge, Monolith.
Anime Person Of The Week: Yoshiaki Kawajiri
His Wikipedia page is here.
I love that picture, above. It kind of looks like the rougish-lounge-lizard esque character that makes the ultimate sacrifice at the end of the film, thus revealing his warm heart. Don't you get that vibe?
