Fist of the North Star “show us your Kenshiro voice” contest winners
Last Tuesday, not only did our Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage review go live, but we also held a contest where you could win some awesome prizes. We asked our readers to submit a video of their best Kenshiro “atatatatatata WATA” battle cry. Contestants had until November 30th to submit their video.
Here’s what everyone was trying to win:
1st place – Fist of the North Star Ken’s Rage and a Fist of the North Star character voice clock
2nd place – Fist of the North Star character voice clock
1st place and 2nd place – Fist of the North Star character voice clock and a rare artbook signed by the producer of Ken’s Rage, Hisashi Koinuma.
After rewatching each entry more times than any healthy person should have, the winners were finally chosen. We’ll start with the two winners from Europe.
First up is @KrigoCA. The Kenshiro voice was very well done and this is by far my favorite entry in the contest. While the 100 Crack Fist motions weren’t necessary, they certainly added to the overall awesomeness of the video. We just wonder why he’s walking into an oven at the end.
The second winner in Europe is @philbaker76. Instead of doing the video himself, he had a kid perform a hilarious 100 Crack Fist, complete with a costume that rips off and fake scars on his chest. Isn’t Charlie a little young to be watching Fist of the North Star? Regardless, this was an interesting entry.
Next up are the winners in North America. It was really difficult choosing the best voice this time since there were more entries and so many of them were very well done.
First up is our second place winner, @Soryiu. He had the right intensity and even included classic Fist of the North Star background music to his video. Kudos for trying to put on a show, you definitely had us impressed!
And finally, our first place winner in North America is….
Cjeromek’s entry was basic and straight to the point. The video wasn’t of the best quality, but that didn’t matter. He provided what we thought was the best representation of a Kenshiro voice out of all the entries we received.
All four winners (@philbaker76 @KrigoCA @Soryiu and @Cjeromek) will be contacted shortly. We would like to thank @TecmoKoeiUS and @inspchin, @TecmoKoeiEurope’s Community Manager, for providing these prizes to our readers. We’d also like to thank everyone that entered this ridiculous contest. You guys rock!
We’ll have more giveaways in the coming weeks. Stay tuned.
