Adventure. Gunslingers. Outlaws. Shoot-outs. War.
Being set primarily in an alternate universe version of the Wild West, Dead End Junction hits on themes relevant to the setting, such as treatment of the Native American population and the scars left by the Civil War (represented in-universe by the Fuuro and the Border War respectively); many of which are applicable to life in the world today.
And so begins a grand epic of intertwining destinies; a tale of God, of angels, demons and humans living amongst the walls of the floating purgatory, Tokyo Babel -- a soaring bastion erected in the image of Tokyo, one of the largest cities of a world succumbed to the apocalypse.
What drives its few survivors onward to the gates of Heaven in a world ravaged and bereft of God?
And what exactly is this Heaven, for that matter? What aspirations could the angels and demons harbor in an era where the gates of both Heaven and Hell are shut tight even to them?
What plans does God have for his flock?
Whence should mankind seek guidance with their Lord silent? What choices still await them?
