Warner Bros. Japan announced that they will be producing a new anime adaptation of Buronson and Tetsuo Hara’s manga, Fist of the North Star, on Wednesday.
The anime will have an all-new cast and will announce more details at a later date.
A new visual teaser for the new anime adaptation was also released.
The new anime adaptation was announced in celebration of the manga’s 40th anniversary celebration.
Written by Buronson and illustrated by Tetsuo Hara, Fist of the North Star started its serialization in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in 1983.
The series was concluded in 1988 with 245 issues and 27 tankobon volumes published.
Later in 1984, Toei Animation released an anime adaptation of the manga. The anime aired for a total of 152 episodes, ending in 1988.
Viz Media publishes the series in English and describes it as:
One day, a wanderer appears out of the wasteland to bring justice to the guilty and hope to the people—a warrior named Ken, a man who bears seven scars upon his chest and holds the secret of a mysterious martial art known as Hokuto Shinken, the Divine Fist of the North Star!
