While the setting of Fist of the North Star might at first seem like it’s just the world as we know it but set after a nuclear appocalypse in the near unspecified future, as the series goes on it shows some curious divergences from our own world. Apart from the broken down skyscrapers and cities in the deserted background (and intact ones in flashbacks), there are not a lot of signs that regular urban life as we know it ever existed, almost all people who aren’t superpowered martial artists or Always Chaotic Evil thugs with mohawks and outfits straight out of Mad Max dress and behave like medieval peasants, weapons more advanced than swords or bows are incredibly rare to come by, same for any mode of transportation that isn’t bikes/dune buggies/horses, there are no recognizable landmarks or indications that the territories seen used to be any real world city/region, the nuclear devastation and radiation sickness mechanics don’t match anything resembling our own, and last but not least no traces of pre war governmental rule is seen, with martial arts and the constellations being the major forces turning the gears of the world.

By his own admission, Reed wasn’t the easiest guy to live with. Designer Replica Bags
