The fourth volume of spin-off gag manga Hokuto no Ken: Ichigo-Aji revealed that an anime adaptation has been green-lit. According to the wraparound jacket band found on the volume, the series also revealed that there are a million volumes currently in print. The television series is scheduled to premiere in Fall 2015.

The series is written by Yushi Kawata with illustrations by Imoto Yukito. It has been published online in Web Comic Zenyon since March 2013.

Serving as a spinoff gag manga of the original Hokuto no Ken series, the story is a parody of Fist of the North Star by Buronson and Tetsuo Hara. It consists of page-long gags centered mainly around Souther, both within his final battle with Kenshiro and inserting himself into other parts of the series where he doesn't belong. One recurring gag involves the kid with a turban repeatedly stabbing Souther in the leg every time he climbs the pyramid's staircase, and another involves Rei suddenly transforming into Souther in his iconic moments.

I like both. The Jojo type and the fragile & tortured one (Kanekiiiiii). As long as the story is good bring it on !

About this one I never was a big fan of Hokuto no Ken, even if I really liked the movies remake of the original anime, but if it's entertaining I will watch it.
