Always liked him...sort of the Pilaf of the Kinniku-uni.

Kinkotsuman is one of my favorite characters, he always failed at life (even at raising a son, see Nisei) that made feel more sympathy towards the guy than outright hatred.
The funniest thing is that he is suposedly a skeleton, yet his son has skin and muscles, this is sorta funny/weird.
Good picture btw.

It's Kinnikuman. A lot of things in it makes no sense, but you just enjoy them any ways~.

True, XD.
Many things don't make any sense, like how Suguru keeps his hair short, when he supposedly never takes off his mask, but maybe he actually does take it off to cut his hair, XD. Or that Warsman was supposedly born a cyborg Choujin... Yudetamago failed Biology in that one, XD.
I enjoy the anime very much, too bad that in Latinomaerica they never dubbed it past episode 51, there aren't subs available apart from the first 18 episodes.

Or how Robin Mask can fight, even though a few days before, he said how his body was very damaged, that he could never fight again. Or Terry's leg no longer being amputated or ignoring that it was in the first place. Too many plot holes, but I don't care~.
Yeah, there needs to be more Kinnikuman love internationally.

There are many many plotholes, including the one that Mayumi said that Suguru got a scar from a childhood incident in planet Kinniku, Suguru was a couple of months old when he was abandoned in Earth, XDDD.
I don't care either, but still is a pretty good series!
BTW, I believe Yudetamago were 18 years old when they started the manga, back then there weren't many resources for how to write a story properly, hence their mistakes, they were in many ways... kids and didn't have proper knowledge of writting, yet they did a very good job for the 80s standards of manga.
True, I wish Kinnikuman was more popular to the western audiences.

This brings back memories!
My vather always showed us old videos from japan, Kinnikuman was one the shows we were watching.

I liked poor old Kinkotsuman, even when he failed in everything.><

Lucky you. I wish I had videos and DVDs, rather than rely on the intermawebs.

Yah, you gotta love the guy dewasa~.

:thumbsup: I love his song! I'm desperate for an mp3 of his theme!

He never was that much of a bad guy. :D I mean, he cheers for Kinnikuman in fights half the time.

In the cartoon, anyways, where they gave him a more perminant role as a supporting character. In the comic, he appears to hound Kinnikuman uptill the American Tour, and only got two one panel appearances later.

This guy always made me laugh!! He's such a bad bad guy!
Frobman Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2007   Filmographer
Yeah, that's Kinkotsuman for yeah. Even though he dissapears early in the comic and makes a cameo at the end, he's still a reccuring supporting character in the cartoon series, with Iwao.

I've never read the comic version, but I loved Kinkotsuman in the cartoon!!!
