SG: When you think of manga or Japanese Anime, you think of a few BIG names. Robotech, Akira, Ghost in a Shell, Naruto… and Fist of the North Star. The comic/movie/TV series was a bloody, apocalyptic mess that influenced everything from Dragonball to, well anything out of Japan today. It also spawned numerous video games and even a live action Movie with Costas Mendalyor, Chris Penn and Malcolm McDowell… Yup. It’s kind of a big deal.
