Fist of the Blue Sky Regenesis is the new television anime of Buronson, Nobuhiko Horie, and Tetsuo Hara's Souten no Ken (Fist of the Blue Sky) manga.

Yoshio Kazumi (Ajin episode director) is directing the anime at Polygon Pictures, and Satoshi Ozaki supervising and writing the series scripts. Kazuma Teshigahara (Street Fighter IV: The Ties That Bind) and Hiromi Satō are designing the characters. The artist AK-69 performs the anime's opening theme song "Sōten no Hate ni" (To the Ends of the Blue Sky), while Uesaka performs the ending theme song "Inori no Hoshizora" (Starry Night of Prayer).

Shōnen Ashibe GO! GO! Goma-chan season 3 debuts on Tuesday at 7:00 a.m. EDT. It will be available for users worldwide except in Asia.

The anime adapts Hiromi Morishita's original Shōnen Ashibe manga. The story follows the daily life of the baby spotted seal Goma-chan and its owner, schoolboy Ashibe Ashiya.

The first new anime season premiered in April 2016, and the second season premiered last April. Crunchyroll streamed both seasons as they aired in Japan. Morishita's manga previously inspired a 1991 television anime series and a second 1992-1993 television anime series.

Morishita serialized the original manga in Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump magazine from 1988 to 1994. The manga spawned a sequel titled Comagoma in Weekly Young Jump from 2000 to 2004. A new manga series by Morishita and artist Junko Ogino debuted in Monthly Action in April 2016, and switched to Monthly Manga Town last May. Crunchyroll is releasing the manga in English digitally.
