In the late 1990s, with society descending into totalitarianism and anarchy, comes Saiga Riki-Oh, a lone wolf devoted to rooting out people's evil karma. To reconnect with a long-lost brother and solve the mystery behind the separated family and its relation to the Star of David on his hand, he punches through gangsters, corrupt martial artists, and more, all while drawing an equal number of hotblooded supporters and insane enemies.

Riki-Oh is a young kid with great intelligence and an ungodly amount of strength who finds himself in a max security prison serving out his 3 year sentence for assault. unbeknownst to the reader, this prison will be a very large hint into finding out the true secrets about his long lost biological family.

oh boi where to begin

This is the kind of series you have to shut your brain off. Any attempt to understand the story will simply backfire on you.
