TV Tropes describes the synopsis as follows,

“Akira Yuki, a Hakkyoku-Ken martial artist, is Wandering the Earth on a journey to see the eight stars in the sky once again, which can only be seen by those who possess true strength. He ends up in Chinatown and meets Pai Chan, a young girl who is being chased down by the Koenkan, a powerful martial arts organization that terrorizes the town. Along with the help of fellow martial artists Jacky and Sarah Bryant, Akira and Pai fight off against Koenkan’s leaders and free the townspeople from their iron grip. As the Koenkan continues to chase them across the country, one of their partners takes an interest in Sarah and hires the mercenary Kage-Maru to kidnap her.”

The anime is based on the ‘Virtua Fighter’ video game series created by Yu Suzuki and released by SEGA in 1994 for the SEGA Saturn console. It has had numerous sequels and spin-offs.
