The year is 199X, and most of the world's population has been wiped out by nuclear war. Raoh, the strongest warrior alive, survives by using a deadly martial art known as Hokuto Shin Ken; this powerful fighting style targets pressure points and is said to be unbeatable. Along with the feisty and beautiful Reina, her smart and cunning brother Souga and Raoh's trusty steed Kokuro-ko, Raoh sets forth to conquer what's left of mankind. Yet the world is not as we know it – it's filled with killers, thieves, warlords and the weak. With epic power and fear, Raoh will conquer his enemies where they stand.
