Hirano Aya will play Sara in a new Fist of the North Star OVA called Fist of the North Star: The Legend of Toki (真救世主伝説 北斗の拳 トキ伝 Shin Kyūseishu Densetsu Hokuto no Ken: Toki-den), which is scheduled to go on sale on March 26, 2008.
Aya reports in her blog that she went to the atelier of mangaka Hara Tetsuo 原哲夫 to shoot video for the DVD extras. This was a big deal for her, since Fist of the North Star has been one of her favorite mangas. Lines from the series were apparently a running gag on the set of Suzumiya Haruhi. Sugita Tomokazu is supposed to have given Gotou Yuuko her nickname of "Gotuuza-sama" in imitation of the names in Fist.
At the door to Hara-sensei's workshop was a life-size golden statue of Kenshirou. Aya said that Hara-sensei was very nice and gave her a lot of Fist of the North Star goods.
Aya will have good company in this one-episode OVA. The other main female role, Lin, will be played by Sakamoto Maaya. And the music will be by Kajiura Yuki.
