Fist of the North Star 10 Big Brawls for the King of the Universe with Andrew Mecha Davis (Popanimecomics)

These days when a series is based all around fighting and punching people in the face it’s a surprise when there isn’t a fighting game to go along with it. But did you know that there was a time when Street Fighter II hadn’t come out yet? And that people were making fighting games before it?

Listen in as Andrew Mecha Davis from Popanimecomics joins the show to help take a look at Fist of the North Star 10 Big Brawls for the King of the Universe to help solve the mystery of why this anime hasn’t been bigger in the US. And possibly set a new record for longest Play Comics episode title. I’m too lazy to actually go check on that one though, it just feels right.

Learn such things as:

  • Can a story be good if you already know where it’s going?
  • Does it really matter who characters are in a fighting game?
  • What’s the best way to experience Fist of the North Star?
  • And so much more!
