Fist of the North Star (北斗の拳 Hokuto no Ken, literally Fist of the Big Dipper) is a Japanese animated series based on the manga written by Buronson and illustrated by Tetsuo Hara.
The show was first dubbed in 1999 by Animaze for Manga Entertainment. Manga released the dub on VHS before stopping after 8 tapes covering 24 episodes. The other 12 dubbed episodes would air on Showtime Beyond in the US, and released on DVD across 6 Volumes.
The dub goes no further than Episode 36. Why it wasn't completed is unclear, though it seems Manga only licensed 36 episodes as a starting point and the home video sales likely didn't justify the cost of licensing further episodes.
