Kenshiro was originally an orphan from Taiseiden, Shura and a descendent of the Hokuto Sōke bloodline. He was sent to the mainland by Jukei as a baby to be adopted by Ryuken, master of Hokuto Shinken. Ryuken named him after his older brother Kenshirō Kasumi, since they shared the same Big Dipper-shaped birthmark on their heads.

Nice respect thread. I always liked the anime movie from the 80's. Never read the manga or saw the tv show.

Btw, Kenshiro kind of looks like Jon Joestar from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. Wonder If JoJo stole the look.

He did actually. A lot of Jojo was inspired by FotNS.
