A handful of new cast members have been revealed for the upcoming Fist of the Blue Sky Regenesis anime, continuing the story of the Fist of the North Star prequel manga by Buronson, Nobuhiko Horie, and Tetsuo Hara. Following up on the initial announcement that Kouchi Yamadera will be back in the lead as Kenshiro Kasumi, we have more additions and their character visuals.
First up, let's take a look at my beautiful wide son, Kenshiro:
Here's who will be joining him:
Erika Arendt - Sumire Uesaka (Shalltear Bloodfallen in Overlord)
Liu Feiyan - Takehito Koyasu (Shinsuke in Gintama)
Yasaka - Setsuji Satoh (Cyborg 007 in Cyborg 009: Call of Justice)
Pan Yuling - Yumi Touma (Mayuko in Ushio & Tora)
Speaking of Sumire Uesaka, she'll be performing the ending theme, "Inori no Hoshizora."
AK-69 will kick things off with his "Souten no Hate ni" opening theme.
Polygon Pictures (Knights of Sidonia) is producing the series, with Ajin episode director Yoshio Kazumi at the helm and Satoshi Ozaki on series composition.
Gutsoon, who previously released some of the series in English, described it:
It is just before WWII, Kasumi Kenshiro hides as a quiet, absent-minded professor teaching literature at a small women's college in Tokyo. Once the 62nd Grand Master of Hokuto Shinken, "God Fist of the North Star," and known has Yan Wang, or "the King of Death," who preserved the peace in the "City of Devils." A fighter of thugs and drug dealers, Kasumi seeks anonymity and a quiet life until the death of his lover, and former brothers, forces him to return to Shanghai to fulfill his destiny and avenge the deaths of his associates.
