The Anime Nostalgia Podcast - ep 100: The World of Fist of the North Star with GrantTheThief


Subscribers! Be sure to go to the blog to read the description easier & check out links for this episode!

This month, to celebrate the big Episode #100, not only have I got a brand new guest to the show, GrantTheThief of The Blade Licking Thieves Podcast, but we’re going to be talking about one of the biggest, most influential shonen series of all time: Fist of the North Star! Not only that, but one lucky listener in the USA will win a copy of volume 1 of the new English manga release out this month, thanks to Viz Media! (Don’t worry, I tell you how you can win at the very beginning of the podcast & it’s super easy! Just be sure to get those entries in by July 5, 2021!) Listen as we give a relatively spoiler-free overview about what exactly Fist of the North Star is, it’s history, why we love it so much, our favorite Fist of the North Star memes, and why we think you might want to check it out, too, in this extra-long 100th episode extravaganza!

This month on the podcast: EPISODE #100!

This month on the podcast, I'm celebrating my 100th episode AND Viz's new release of the original manga with an episode all about the post-apocalyptic world of the iconic 80s classic manga & anime, Fist of The North Star! And joining me from the far-off future of 199X will be Grant from The Blade Licking Thieves podcast! I'll also be giving away a copy of the upcoming first volume of the manga (and some other goodies!) to one lucky winner (living in the United States) thanks to the fine folks at Viz Media, so you'll have to listen to the episode to find out how to win it. 😉
