[quote]new anime licensed
We will be releasing these anime titles in 2010:

Fist of the North Star TV Series 1-152
Lupin the Third Episode 0 First Contact
Sea Prince and the Fire Child

The Fist TV series will be released in 4 boxsets.
Also we licensed the Miyavi live action movie Oresama for release in 2010.

Storm Riders is now out, and I feel that its the best version of the film ever released. It has 2 discs and includes the original uncut version and the English dubbed international cut. We remastered the video and subtitles.

Uzumaki and Sex and Zen are also coming out on October 13th. Tokyo 10+1 will be out on November 24th.[/quote]
Definitely buying FoTNS and Lupin.

Didn’t they announce Fist some time ago. I remember reading about it once or twice. Let’s just hope it’s not like the last Lupin movie they got, and they just decide to not release it.

They got the movie, which I still need to buy.

Sounds like the movie did well for them. Good can finally own this show on DVD. Also gives me hope for Galaxy Express 999 and Captain Harlock. Wonder if the Mangle ent dub will be included.


#5

Maybe not just GE999 and Cap Harlock maybe more Lupin III specials and some unreleased tv. Of course if they did never release that other lupin movie then I guess there is no hope on that one. Keep my fingers crossed.

[size=20]Hokuto no Ken: Ichigo Aji Spinoff Gag Manga Gets TV Anime This Fall[/size]

Announcement teases return of Banjou Ginga as Souther

The wraparound jacket band on the fourth compiled manga volume of Imōto Yukito, and Yūshi Kawata’s Hokuto no Ken: Ichigo Aji (Fist of the North Star: Strawberry Flavor) manga is revealing on Saturday that the manga is getting a television anime adaptation this fall. The jacket band is also revealing that the manga now has more than 1 million copies in print.

Buronson and Tetsuo Hara — the creators of the original Fist of the North Star post-apocalyptic fighting manga — are credited with the original work for Hokuto no Ken: Ichigo Aji. Kawata writes the manga’s scenarios, Imōto Yukito draws the manga, and Yukito is credited with collaboration.

The announcement also teases, “The resurrection of the Banjou Ginga version of Souther!!” Ginga played Souther in the original Fist of the North Star television anime series, but other voice actors have also played him, including Akio Ohtsuka (Shin Kyūseishu Densetsu Hokuto no Ken: Raoh-den Junai no Shō and Shin Kyūseishu Densetsu Hokuto no Ken: Yuria-den), Toshihiko Seki (Legends of the Dark King: A Fist of the North Star Story), and Nobutoshi Canna (Hokuto Musou, Shin Hokuto Musou video games).

The gag manga centers on a fun version of the Holy Emperor Souther as he tries to find ways to become friends with Kenshirō, demonstrates his party techniques, and sometimes plays with the Gosha Sei.

Yukito and Kawata launched the manga on Tokuma Shoten’s Web Comic Zenyon website in 2013.

Kaijo’s DD Fist of the North Star, another Fist of the North Star spinoff gag manga, previously inspired a DD Hokuto no Ken short anime, a series of anime shorts that premiered in 2011, and another television anime series that premiered in 2013.

Veteran voice actor returns to play the Holy Emperor in upcoming parody anime
June 19, 2015 11:43pm CDT

Earlier Crunchyroll reported that an anime adaptation of Imouto Yukito and Yushi Kawata’s parody manga, Strawberry-Flavored Fist of the North Star, is in the works. Now it has been announced that Banjou Ginga, the original voice of Souther in the 1984 Fist of the North Star TV anime, will be returning to reprise his role as the Holy Emperor.

The news broke with a teaser site (with a ridiculously long URL) which features Banjou Ginga and original Fist of the North Star co-creator Tetsuo Hara posing with strawberries:

[size=20]Amusing Error Pages Found on “Strawberry-Flavored Fist of the North Star” Site[/size]
The creators of the upcoming TV parody anime have fun with improperly typed URLs
June 30, 2015 3:27pm CDT

Earlier Crunchyroll reported on parody manga Strawberry-Flavored Fist of the North Star receiving an anime adaptation, as well the official website for the show with it’s ridiculously long URL: http://www.hikanukobinukaeriminuteiounitousouhanainodaaaaa.com/

The URL is a reference to one of Holy Emperor Souther’s most famous quotes: “Hikanu! Kobinu! Kaeminu! Teiou ni tousou ha nai no daaaaa!” Which translates in English to: “No retreat! No begging! No looking back! To an emperor, there is no such thing as RUNNING AWAY!”

Now enterprising fans have discovered that the website includes Easters eggs hidden among its “404 error” redirect pages when visitors begin leaving 'a’s off of the “daaaaa” in the website address.
