Fist of the Blue Sky is a prequel to fan-favorite manga Fist of the North Star. The series, which was written by Buronson and Nobuhiko Horie, launched in the pages of Shinchosha’s Weekly Comic Bunch magazine in May 2001. The magazine continued through August 2010, when Weekly Comic Bunch published its final issue. A total of 22 compiled volumes were released to retailers.

Crunchyroll streamed the first season as it aired in Japan. They describe it as:

The year is 193X in Shanghai, the city where lives are valued least. The rivalry between the two factions controlling the underworld, the Green Gang and Red Flower Gang, reaches its peak and is nearing its end with a Green Gang victory. The individuals responsible for the revival of the Green Gang, Kasumi Kenshiro and Yu-Ling, are enjoying a brief rest from the conflict. Meanwhile, in Harbin, Liu Fei-yan and Erika Arendt are carefully transporting something. With their course set for Shanghai, they are headed to meet French intelligence officer Charles de Guise.

Defunct publisher Gutsoon! Entertainment acquired the license for Fist of the Blue Sky, which they ran in manga magazine Raijin Comics. The company published four volumes before they closed up shop.
