Whats up everyone!

Been reading your messages, hearing what you had to say, talked it over and thanks to the good folks at Toei Animation, we decided to blast out the remaining episodes of 4 of their titles, instead of having you wait for them to roll out slowly.

I like to call it a "recession time kick-back." Something to get you through these tough times

So, from today till this Sunday April 26, we're going to be rolling out 4 Toei titles - one for each day - at 12 pm PDT.

Today's Blow Out Blast Series is: Fist of the North Star!
Oh yes, it's the classic anime throwback from 1984 (1983 for the manga). If you've never seen it, here's what this ground breaking, post-apocalyptic, pre-Akira series is about:
"The year is 19XX – war has turned the world into a nuclear wasteland.

The oceans have dried up, the land scorched, and it appears as though all life has gone extinct. However, humanity had survived these harsh conditions, only to relapse into society where violence dominates.

In this world of mayhem, a drifter in possession of a lethal fighting style known as the Divine Fist of the North Star wanders through the arid desert. He is Kenshiro, and on his chest he bears 7 wounds as he treks through the wastelands to rescue his lover Yuria who has been kidnapped by Shin, his former friend. Along the way he takes Bat and Lin under his wing as they continue their journey. With the ruins of earth as the backdrop, many come in the way of Kenshiro as he tries to find Yuria in this epic saga!"

Now's a good time to brush up on your history! Hope you enjoy Fist of the North Star!

Cool, I'll watch it. I just hope it's available in our region here.

EDIT: Yeah, it's licensed here. Geez the next thing you'll know if Special A has a season two, the CR shows it here, I might not get to watch it here due to licensing limitations. That would be horror!

Fist of the North Star is a classic, I hope it doesnt turn off some people with it's old style of animation and more .... "direct" approach to violence in a story. Newer fans of anime are used to watching guys talk about killing each other and posing for 5 episodes before they actually do it....

Either way a great series especially for old farts who remember it from when they were younger AKA: me ;p
