The Great Kanto Desert, a sweltering wasteland of nothing but ruins and sand, is all that remains of post-apocalyptic Japan. The once fair population has been left to cling to the inhospitable dunes for survival. At least, that is the case for normal people. For those who have spent a little too long in the Kanto sun, the desert offers a wondrous opportunity to make a name for themselves. One such person is the masked handyman "Sunabouzu," or Desert Punk, who has forged a legendary reputation for always finishing his jobs, no matter the nature or cost. Cunning and ruthless, he has become a force of crude destruction to the other desert people. However, the "Vixen of the Desert," Junko Asagiri, discovers that Sunabouzu is not without his weaknesses—he is easily swayed by his insatiable lust for large-breasted desert babes. Following their chaotic adventures through the Kanto Desert, Sunabouzu features a bizarre cast of personalities who entertain themselves with senseless violence and perversion in a world long destroyed by their forefathers. And just like them, they have not learned a damn thing.

Dirty Grandpa style humor. Watch it in English


As a child I was hurt and confused when my father beat me. After watching Desert Punk, I understand the hatred that drove him to it.


Rude and crude, Desert Punk won’t be for everyone, but for those looking for a more harsh/realism look on human nature this will be a treat


First OP is one of the best ever. Pretty good show with a rushed ending.


I’m still torn about this one, even 6 years later. I like it, but I also… don’t. Too complex of an opinion for character limit. Caution.


There is nothing quite like Desert Punk. I don’t know what to give it. Is it good? I dunno. Is it bad? I dunno. It’s something else…
