About Fist of the North Star Manga Volume 1 (Hardcover)

Fist of the North Star manga volume 1 features story by Buronson and art by Tetsuo Hara.

In a postapocalyptic world, humanity has risen from the ashes of nuclear war, but only to a nightmare of endless suffering. It is a time of chaos. Gangs of savage marauders and warlords rule the broken ruins of civilization, terrorizing and enslaving the survivors. Life has become a brutal struggle for existence and death the only release.

One day, a wanderer appears out of the wasteland to bring justice to the guilty and hope for the people—a warrior named Ken who bears seven scars upon his chest and holds the deadly secrets of a mysterious martial art known as Hokuto Shinken—the Divine Fist of the North Star!

Best martial arts manga ever

by -

One of my childhood's best manga memories is getting a hardcover release. This is one of the best battle martial arts manga ever.

What a great series !

by -

I decided to grab fist of the north star because I've heard that a lot of the other manga I read took inspiration from this series so once I heard there was a physical release in English I knew I had to pick it up! Overall the item came in perfect conditions with no issues and I'm excited to start this journey!

Martial arts and beating bad guys. What's not to love?

by -

Fist of the North Star is great. 306 pages of pure action, justice, and martial arts. The art is great, the quality of the book is amazing with the hardcover, and it came with no damage! I recommend Fist of the North Star to fans of Jojos and Berserk. This gives off the same vibes and is the material that inspired those other well loved series. Finally, it looks great on the shelf. Can't wait for the next volume to be released!

Hokuto Hyakuretsu Ken!

by -

The manga that started what would go on to be one of the most profitable media franchises ever. Hara's art is a perfect fit to the grizzly Mad Max inspired setting FotNS takes place in. The opening chapter does a good job of showing us what we can expect going forward. As a whole, the series stays consistent, sometimes episodic, but with an overarching narrative that will get you pumped, invested, and getting those manly tears flowing.

A Cry From the Heart!

by -

This is quite possibly the best first volume release of Fist of the North Star you could feasibly have.

This volume contains chapters 1-13, which is a nice slice of the story that'll get you through all of the Shin arc and partway through God's Land. It's just enough to give you an idea of whether or not this story will be for you, and gives you just enough of the second arc to whet your appetite for the next volume.

It's the kind of high quality release that this series has begged for. Highly recommended, a must-have for fans of classic Shonen action.

Battle your way through the wasteland!


In this apocalyptic story set in the aftermath of nuclear war we follow Ken as he wanders this desolate land. Ken is a master of a special technique of martial arts that you have to see to believe. He helps the innocent and battles any vile bandits and warlords that terrorizes this broken world. These horrid gangs roam the Earth stealing what they want to survive, enslaving the weak and innocent, and killing anyone in their way with no remorse. Imagine the Mad Max films with martial arts and you’ll have a good idea of what to expect in this manga. The illustrations and character designs are amazing. You really get pulled into the story and get a feel of this gritty, destructive world and all the frequent battles that occur. This book is presented in a beautifully designed hardcover and will look great on your bookshelf. If you’re into very dark, violent, post-apocalyptic stories with great characters, you won’t be disappointed with Fist of the North Star.
