Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky
In the not-so-distant future, overburdened national budgets have forced the privatization of most government institutions. Even prisons have become franchised, commercial ventures. When mild-mannered Ricky avenges the death of his girlfriend by drug-pushing thugs, he is sentenced to an ultra-maximum-security prison. Within the prison walls lies a penitentiary like no other, run by a host of evil characters, including a sadistic warden, his assistant, and The Gang of Four, a group of powerful fighters who terrorize and control their fellow inmates. When he witnesses the brutality first-hand, Ricky takes it upon himself to take back control from the lawless sadists, ferociously busting through (literally!) cruel prison guards and bullying inmates. It's only a matter of time before Ricky is granted saint-like status among the humble inmates. Fearing an uprising, the wicked warden sends his thugs to finish our hero once and for all!
