Plot Summary: After an apocalypse, the world is laid to waste. Bandits rule the land, and might makes right the world over. Justice is a dying concept, so a new kind of hero begins to show himself to the people. With his "Fist of the North Star" technique, the man named Kenshiro slaughters those who would do violence upon the innocent. He journeys to violently set justice back in the world, and dreams of one day refinding his beloved Julia.
