-From Rage Quitter 87's Fist of the North Star site
ADV, also known as ADV Films, was once the largest anime distributor in North America. And then on September 1st, 2009, the company announced it was selling off its assets, including intellectual properties, to several different companies. The only involvement this company had with Fist of the North Star was when it released New Fist of the North Star on DVD (known as Shin Hokuto no Ken in Japan). These DVDs were available in American and the United Kingdom.
