A mysterious man known as the "King of Death" roams the streets of pre-war Shanghai in the second volume of the action-packed prequel to Fist of the North Star.
It has been three years since Kasumi Kenshiro left Shanghai, and the Chinese metropolis is just as dangerous as ever. Foreign governments and Chinese factions have carved the city into different quarters, each with its own laws and government, and all rife with corruption. As the major powers vie for political control. the streets are left to local gangs. Life is cheap, and death is always near. Kenshiro left the "City of Devils" after single-handedly wiping out the evil Kokakai gang, leaving his "brothers" of the benign Chinpan gang to rule the streets. But in his absence, the Chinpan were betrayed and wiped out, and the Kokakai have spread a reign of terror over the city.
Now Kenshiro has returned. It may seem difficult for one man to take on the strongest gang in Southern China, but few know that Kenshiro is the Grandmaster of HOKUTO SHINKEN-Fist of the North Star-the most feared and lethal martial art. He now prepares to take revenge for his brothers' defeat and bring order back to Shanghai.
