Fist of the North Star - Strawberry Flavor
Fist of the North Star - Strawberry Flavor
In this very zany take on the dramatic series by Buronson and Tetsuo Hara, the end of the century… wasn't so bad, actually. A very special and brave Holy Emperor, Souther, wants to become more "involved" and to be on "friendly terms" with the noble Kenshiro & his posse. Especially Kenshiro. Due to his very outgoing nature, he also crashes the homes of his other buddies, often when they especially don't want him to show up! Join Souther as he releases his feelings in heart-throbbing, mind-bending confessions, settles complex and engrossing territorial disputes with deep and intricate consequences, enjoys the simple and introspective pleasures of a quiet dinner, and climbs the top of the rough and brutal pyramid that is the idol world - with the help of his best buddies, of course! Maybe even Kenshiro will be there - who knows! By the time it got its anime in 2015, Strawberry Flavor had sold over 1 million copies in Japan. The anime was composed of 2-minute long, abridged adaptations of select chapters from the first three volumes. They were placed after the main episodes of DD Fist of the North Star season 2. Every volume also contains at least one gaiden (side story). These gaiden are drawn in Yukito's (the elder sister of Yukito Imouto) normal artstyle, and expand on characters who did not receive gaiden during the Hokuto Gaiden period in the late 2000's. Gaiden List: Volume 1: Spade, Club & Diamond, Heart Volume 2: Souther Volume 3: Shuren & Huey Volume 4: Fudo Volume 5: Yuda Volume 6: Shin Volume 7: Falco & friends, Ein Volume 8: Ogai Volume 9: Devil Rebirth

The Doberman Detective
The Doberman Detective
A work originally serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump from 1975-1979. The first major work for the artist Shinji Hiramatsu and written by Buronson who'd later write the enormously popular Fist of the North Star. It was also the first major assignment of then green editor Kazuhiko Torishima, who would later become Akira Toriyama's editor for Dr. Slump and most of Dragon Ball. It features a hardboiled detective as its protagonist with a heavy focus on crime and action, not too dissimilar to what one would see in the Gekiga magazines of the time. Detective George (Joji) Kano is called "The Doberman" for his ferocity in dispatching criminals and terrorists. Working under the Special Crimes Division of the Tokyo PD, Joji and his ever expanding posse work together to take down the sleaziest and most heinous criminals in the Land of the Rising Sun.
