Is it me or does the American Dad episode “Rapture’s delight” blatantly reference Jesus Christ as Kenshiro from Fist of The North Star and no one caught it?
His arrival scene has him enter a bar after roaming the post apocalyptic wastelands of earth similar to FOTNS. The bar is filled with gangs and marauders who look just like the ones in FOTNS. He also arrives cloaked and hooded and his eyes even glow for a moment just as Kenshiro’s did in his arrival scene.
He never hits a Hokuto Hyakuretsu Ken on anyone or anything but it cracked me up that they would reference such a rare gem of animation. Kudo’s to American Dad. They even stuck in some similar music.
Watch the whole episode below if you like. It’s total genius, but the Kenshiro bit kicks off around the 10min 45sec mark I think.
Head of the Household.
