Great Moments in Synth: Fist of the North Star

Cooking is a snap for this guyYo, check out the ending theme for the Fist of the North Star movie, released stateside in 1986. I’ve been listening to this non-stop for the past few days. Some of these shows had such incredible production talent! I’m going to post an in-depth write-up of the film somewhere pretty soon. The plot is about 4 mystical martial arts brothers, the most ultimate badass muscle dudes ever, who all wish to be the true North Star. Ken is the obvious protagonist since he never breaks a sweat even when punching holes through people’s faces and mid-sections.

But the plot has absolutely no bearing whatsoever on how legit the song is. Completely melancholy and moving.
