Today Sentai Filmworks announced that they have acquired the license to DD Fist of the North Star, a super-deformed parody series of the original Fist of the North Star. DD Fist of the North Star first aired back in the spring 2013 series and was animated by Ajiado and takes many of the familiar heroes from the series into a world where the nuclear war never happened.
Sentai Filmworks will be releasing DD Fist of the North Star on digital outlets and is planning on a home video release sometime in the future. The company describes the series as follows:
To be its evangelist, highly trained in the secret martial art of Hokuto Shinken, Kenshiro has achieved such a high level of combat expertise that he can kill a man with his finger. Though these skills may be useful for a wandering man trying to survive the deadly wastelands left behind by nuclear war, they’re all but useless in modern day Japan! With an apocalypse that never happened and a less-than-desirable skill set, would-be hero Kenshiro is stuck looking for a job just like every other unlucky person in Japan. And frankly, part time jobs just aren’t cutting it.
Things start to look up when he stumbles across a vacancy notice at a convenience store, but unfortunately he’ll have to deal with two contentious contenders if he wants the job: his own brothers Toki and Raoh, who share the same dilemma as Kenshiro himself. The battle for the stock shelves begins—fists will fly and no punches will be pulled as martial arts and shelved snacks collide in DD Fist of the North Star!
