[Original work: Buronson]
A work from 40 years ago is revived as an anime work.
Actually, 40 years ago, I kept a little distance between manga and anime, thinking they were different.
Forty years have passed, and current animation technology and video have evolved dramatically.
How will the technology and visuals improve Fist of the North Star? What’s more, this time, the basic idea is to depict the original work with great care.
I’m really looking forward to it.
“Fist of the North Star”, which has been loved by everyone for 40 years, will be released as a new anime work.
I want to have fun with everyone.
[Manga: Tetsuo Hara]
Thank you for the new animation☆
I was in my 20s when the series was first published, and I never dreamed that the day would come when Fist of the North Star would celebrate its 40th anniversary and I would be rewarded with a completely new anime. Since then, Ikusei Shimo☆.
I’m happy to hear that the voice actors are reading the original work as if listening to the voices of the characters and imagining their respective performances.
I’m really looking forward to seeing how the picture I drew with all my heart 40 years ago will be reincarnated by the production staff who are full of love for the original work, and how it will go wild! ! An exhibition of original paintings including Tetsuo Hara’s new canvas paintings will be held and toured nationwide!!

The masterpiece manga “Fist of the North Star”, which boasts a circulation of over 100 million copies worldwide, began serialization in 1983.
This work, created by the original author Buronson and manga creator Tetsuo Hara, continues to be read and loved by many people.
In 2023, which marks the 40th anniversary of the serialization, we will hold the first and largest exhibition of original drawings for Fist of the North Star in history.
An extremely attractive character created by Buronson, and a powerful original drawing created by Tetsuo Hara’s overwhelming drawing skills. Approximately 3,000 pages of 136 episodes up to the Raoh edition, as well as some of the gem colored illustrations written at the time of serialization.
We carefully selected 400 original drawings and traced their powerful story in six chapters with the theme of “love.”
The main character, Kenshiro, is devoted to self-sacrificing love for others. Experience the journey at the same time, not only for long-time fans but also for those who are experiencing this work for the first time at this exhibition.
Please burn this image of “love” into your hearts.
A new canvas painting created by Tetsuo Hara for this exhibition will also be on display.
Starting from March 2024, we are planning to travel to venues in Nagoya, Kobe, and Fukuoka.
