---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Patriarch: A long time ago... They said there was legendary Kenpou that came from China, it was practiced by assassins... Hokuto Shinken... The secret was to focus all of your energy to hit the vital points and destroy the body from the inside rather than from the outside. The techniques of this Kenpou were all deadly.

Patriarch: And... Now... He's here...

Zeed: Stop, you're tickling me!!

Zeed: Guwahahaha! I'm gonna kill you!

Kenshiro: You're already dead...

Zeed: What!?

Zeed: HII!?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bat: That's good! You've hit his vital points...

Bat: Why don't you get settled in this village? With the strength you have, it would be easy.

Bat: They have tons of food.

Bat: Bah. If I'm with him, I'll always get to eat.

Bat: Hey, wait for me. My name is Bat!

Bat: Wait. Dammit!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lin: KEEEN!

Lin: Why?

Patriarch: They say, whenever the Great Bear appears, violence will follow!

Patriarch: It's for our own good, and for the village, Ken left for that...

Patriarch: For this village where you live, Lin.

Patriarch: You understand?

Lin: Ken...

TN: Yeah... Sorry I haven't translated anything new I been extremely busy with real life and that's before anything. But now I'm back for a while. Shit it feels nice to post a new translation XD Anyways, I know this series was done before a lot like JoJo's Bizarre Adventure that I'm doing. But this feels right to touch this series too since essentially the old scans were also godawful terrible. I wanted to start from where the series left off but someone beat me to the punch. I could continue on from there, But then again since I noticed this series was pretty abused just like JoJo's I'm also going to be restoring this series as well from start to finish.

Now about the opening Chapter. Kenshiro shows up in a desert land and he's pretty much dying. Patriarch's men grab Kenshiro and throws him a cell with Bat. That's when he meets Lin and Bat. He eats food drinks water and he's re-energized. Zeed's men rush in and for the first time Kenshiro shows his true self. Swift, Cool and calm. Kenshiro tells everyone to get lost. One of his classic lines when he's going to kill someone or multiple people. Everyone gets super kicked in the head bodies blow up its a gore fest. Zeed threatens to kill Lin, Kenshiro gets pissed off and fucking destroys Zeed with extreme body blows aka "North Star: Hundred Crack Fist"! After Zeeds dead and doesn't know it, Kenshiro says the ultimate line in all of Manga history "You're already dead". After Zeed feels pain and dies, Kenshiro leaves that village like like a badass desperado walking to a sunset awaiting his next adventure!

Here's a good song to listen to while you read this Chapter, ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xisIVhc64Ng ) Metallica - "The Call Of Ktulu" (I believe this song is perfect for this Chapter since the Chapter starts off slow, Then it builds up and it's just a fucking gore-fest after! Hahahaha!)
