Description: 199X, nuclear war has ravaged the planet. From the ashes, gangs have risen to take all the power from world governments. Justice has ceased to exist in this now lawless world. From the sands of a desert, a man appears. His name is Kenshiro, and he is the sucessor to the most powerful martial art in the world, Hokuto Shinken.

This art attacks the foes insides, and makes them explode internally and die in often brutal ways. Kenshiro's goal is to kill the man who kidnapped his fiance, Yuria. A man that he once called a friend, but who betrayed him and left him for dead. Along the way, he makes friends and enemies alike, while protecting those who cannot protect themselves.

I saw the anime some time and there's something I didn't understand, but now that I've read the manga I finally know why that shitty anime was the best I ever saw (until I discovered the Jojo anime)

Simply, an incredible journey. Such great characters. Love how Kenshiro came to respect most of the big villians he went up against. Wish a publisher would translate and publish the entire thing.

What a fantastic read.

Amazing. I was crying a lot with the last two chapters. Really satisfied with the ending though. 

Best manga ever
I find it personally funny that I just read all of Himouto! Umaru - chan, and said "Well, time to read something else to fill the void" and this was my first choice. Way better than the anime, with the possible exception of musical accompaniment.

Mad Max came in 1979 and HNK in 1983.

And for anybody wondering, Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior came out in 1981 (which definitely seems to serve as inspiration for much of Hokuto no Ken's villain designs.)

Which came first, HNK or mad max?

Mad Max came in 1979 and HNK in 1983.

Well, that was manly. Obviously the main focus was on tragedy, reminded me of those Greek myths tragedies.

Anyone knows where I can find Raoh Gaiden scan in English? :)

Which came first, HNK or mad max?

Just finished re-reading this manga. Brought back some fond memories. Now, on to Souten no Ken!

Ah, yes!


Only recently realised ( after reading FOTBS ) that there are more than 50 chapters to this. Hurr. It's better this way I guess. xD


Now, to start over.

Gotta say I prefer JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.

Been wanting to read this forever, never found it, granted i didn't look very hard but you still get a hug!
Yes!! A welcome addition to the site. Hokuto no Ken is great.
yeah, i will once i finish im just doing it so i dont get confused and forget what volume/chapter im on.

And thanks for uploading soundspark~ :)

Just, could you change chapter numbers so they aren't volume based? it would be appreciated :3
