Samurai-like Judges rule the streets of Japan's mega-city in the world of Judge Dredd. Tackling organised crime and futuristic Ronin, it takes Judges like the renowned Judge Shimura to keep the streets safe.
Hondo City is the Japanese equivalent of Mega-City One - a large, sprawling urban mass policed by a Justice Department. Culturally however, it is totally different. While on the forefront of modern technology, the Hondo-citizens remain tied to the roots and customs of feudal Japan, including the way in which the women are treated as inferior to the male populace. Though the Samurai-like Judge Inspectors are seen to be in charge, the Yakuza crime Syndicates still have a hold on power.
From giant city-stomping beasts to vengeful Ronin from beyond the grave, Hondo City life can be hell!
