    The Fist of the Blue Sky (Souten no Ken) by Buronson & Hara Tetsuo

    I became interested in the series as a whole after reading some fist of the blue sky (which, if i am lucky, i can start scanlating soon). Although Fist of the North Star was serialized in shounen jump, if you read it you can tell that it sort of blurs the lines between shounen and seinen. Any other fans here? I admit, i dont know much about the universe as a whole but i am willing to check out any series where someone can stick a finger in someone's head and make it explode. (or i would be if there wasnt a gap in scanlations and/or there were american releases for the series)

    While i am on the subject of FotNS/FotBS, what other super crazy series are there out there? What i mean is, what other series have protagnists who dont take shit, are too large to imagine and have crazy human dissolving attacks? I know Mad Bull 34 and this series but i dont know of many others worth my time (Jojo has its moments when it is like this, but then Araki feminized the characters)

    Summary for Fist of the Blue Sky:
    15 volumes
    Taking place in 1930s Japan and China, Kasumi Kenshiro(the uncle of the lead from Fist of the North Star) is forced to leave his teaching job and settle an old gang rivalry with the help of his martial arts. Along the way, he meets the son of one his triad buddies, an old flame, and a mysterious old man who teaches him new techniques which will assist him in his quest.

    Here are the older releases:
    Chapter 01
    Chapter 02
    Chapter 03
    Chapter 04
    Chapter 05

    New Release:
    Here is the newest chapter from my new group Blue Sky Scans
    Chapter 06

    Big fan here. So your gonna start scanlating again?

    The first chapters of Blue sky were scanlated by the guy who scanlates the Fist of the northstar. But he seems to want to finish northstar(wich he should. as it has big hole for several books without any translated chapters.) first so it would be great if you. or someone picked this up.

    Re: The Fist of the - Series and other super "manly" series

    I would love to work on Fist of the Blue Sky but i am waiting on one thing to fall into place. However, this topic is only in small part about my FotBS scanlation efforts. I have been an outside fan of Fist of the North star particularly after seeing the movie (which i understand compresses alot of the story into a two hour movie, meaning i should read the manga). However, after seeing the kind of influence it had for some series that followed it, I started to realize how crazy it is. I just wish more series existed like it.

    I was a big fan of the anime when i was little.

    Unconsciousness is my destiny, my joy but also my desperation.

    well, good news. I got in contact with the translator and we should start scanlating regularly by the end of the month but i do have a chapter that he gave me that is almost completely edited. I could be mean and hold it for a while but i probably wont do that

    Re: The Fist of the Blue Sky scans and discussion

    Uncompleted. currently 15 vols are out in japan.
    The story is about Kenshiro, The uncle of Kenshiro from Fist of the northstar.
    Kenshiro used to be known as the king of death back when he was living in shanghai. as he killed so many gang members with his deadly martial art Hokuto shin-ken.
    He is now working as a teacher in japan when one of his old friends comes to meet him and he hears that his old gang in shanghai has been slaughtered....
