Fist of the Blue Sky was a weekly anime series that aired on TV Asahi for 26 episodes. Only 22 of the 26 episodes aired on television, the remaining ones were released alongside the DVD releases, which were completely uncensored. It does not adapt the entirety of the original manga, and was likely cancelled due to low ratings.
