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 exactlyFist 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!
