In the future, Japan is a wasteland. In the Great Kantou Desert, scattered humans eke out a living in the hot sand. Among them, a short-statured man they call "Sunabouzu" makes a living as a bounty hunter. Like a demon of the sand, he seems unbeatable.

I first approached Desert Punk watching its animated version, but it didn't take long before I passed to the original work the latter was inspired by. There are some traits this story possess that won me over without me realizing it, starting off with the plot itself. I think the aspect that stands out the most and which lays at the core of the opera is the inherent greed and selfishness of human beings, as well as their stupidity. In Desert Punk's universe, mankind reached such a knowledge, wilfully exploited to fulfil its egotistical desires, that it brought about its own demise. The Kanto region, read more

Manga: Jigoku no Alice
Both is about a post-apocalyptic desert world where people do bad things to each other to survive. Also there's war and stuff. Really similar setting, almost as they are set in the same universe. Both are highly recommended for any post-apocalyptic fan.

Manga: Zetman
Zetman and desert punk share the same fascination for deserted places made out of concrete, and in the later parts of desert punk there's quite a similarity to the storytelling where longer tightly woven plot is unfolding. Also the pacing is a bit similar wheve both move quite slowly forward but still are full of action. Zetman is very serious though, and desert punk have its fair share of comedy, but believe me when I say that desert punk gets way more serious (and "seinenish") after a few volumes. Both are of course awesome mangas as well.
