"You are already dead." The impact of the post-apocalyptic action anime Fist of the North Star can't be overstated. One of the most successful media franchises of all time, Fist of the North Star is considered a defining work of its generation of hyperviolent shonen sci fi/fantasy anime. It inspired many noteworthy titles including Dragon Ball, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure and Berserk, and it is even credited with originating the fatality finishing move concept commonly seen in the Mortal Kombat video games.
This remarkably rare hand-inked and hand-painted original production cel from the multi-billion-dollar franchise measuring 22.25" x 10" is presented on an original Master pan background rendered in gouache. The setup shows minor handling and edge wear, and taping near the top, and bottom edge to accommodate peg holes.
