A mysterious vagabond tries to find his estranged family in a decayed, postmodern land, aiding the innocent and sending villains to hell along the way.

In the late 1990s, society is descending into ecological collapse and totalitarianism. Saiga Riki-Oh, 21, finds himself in jail.


There's a oneshot at the end of volume 11 & 12, Kirinji and NY Dust respectively. The NY Dust oneshot is the pilot for the series The Hard.

Lol, that line never gets old. Well yeah there's gore, but it's not that bad because most of it's unrealistic and over-the-top (half of Riki-Oh's face could be bloody in one panel and the next it looks like he took a shower). Whole thing reminded me of....Baoh (which is a must-read if you want some campy fun) much more than Berserk. And of course it follows Fist of the North Star's format in the beginning (Later on...I can't really say the same, lol) And Riki-Oh's probably not an antihero; he's emotional version of Kenshiro. Since I read a ton of manly stuff I see similarities everywhere....

Its story is probably the most ridiculous part of the manga. By the end of it I was just thinking that the writer just wanted to add on to it, thus making up random s**t to throw at the reader.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I mean seriously, he tried adding references to Hitler and Judaism only for it to be irrelevant by the end.

Yep. I kinda agree with other people's reviews. Rikioh is totally... umm.... badass, as they had stated. However, there's a single point that was missed by people. It's too ridiculous!! I think I'll spoiler tag it to not ruin the surprise.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
I mean, how come a fist is able to cut a body part with a clean shape? There's this one part where rikioh gives a punch at smoeone's face. Hole on the head, scattered face parts. A little overboard, but oh well. What's stupid is the part that is blown of from the head is perfectly intact, no damage at all, aside from the fact that it is not a part of the head anymore. A PUNCH is supposed to be BLUNT!!

Sorry if my explanation doesn't illustrate clearly.
Read it if you must. You'll see.

Well, other than that, it's cool. Recommended as a fun read

this is great
i laugh alot when i read this...i dont think that was 100% intended but its just so EXTREME you cant help yourself
its like an extreme weird version of HnK and its obvious it got such a long life thanks to the popularity of HnK
it is a little strange that HnK is not listed under recommendations

the most hiliariously awesome manga ive ever read. The fighting is kinda bad, the stunts are like FotNS and the plot is shitty, but thats what makes this so god damn enjoyable.

Do not binge this manga or you'll start to hate it.

The main character is a total badass, even by manga standard. Just read the first chapter.
And somehow it's strangely entertaining...
However, he's so damn invincible that it becomes boring after a while.

This manga gets the thumbs up from me! An awesome anti-hero with awesome power! Every opponent he fights pretty much blows up from how manly the protagonist is!

I have been a big fan of the movie Riki-Oh for years. It is nice to see it finally getting some translations so i can see the original. So far it is right on and awesome! Right up there with Mad Bull on Manly Power!

This may indeed be the most manly manga ever created. And I'm willing to put that hyperbole to print with only 2 chapters scanlated so far. Oh yeah.

Spoiler: His fists are made of 6 cases of whisky and awesome.

The brutality is a bit like in Berserk, good art, pretty dark manga with a lot of mistery at the moment. Seems very promissing to me !!!
