Description
For 10 years, the U.S. Navy base in Yokosuka, Kanagawa Prefecture, was the home port of the aircraft carrier USS Kitty Hawk. But in 2008, Kitty Hawk was replaced by the USS George Washington, a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier. There have been protests against the deployment of the George Washington in Japan. The Navy's public relations campaign includes a manga that puts a human face on the aircraft carrier. The face belongs to Petty Officer Third Class Jack Ohara, a fictional character who is newly assigned to the carrier as it sets sail for Japan. The manga, titled after the ship's hull number, does not address nuclear safety directly, instead subtly implying that it is a non-issue by having the crew go about their business without any apparent concern on the topic. The real focus is on the day-to-day lives of Jack and his crewmates.

Well it does its job well as an informative (though if you want to be cynical, propaganda) manga.

The main character is a pretty standard fare responsible lead character, though I know an average navy sailor would know mpre about how an aircraft carrier works without having to ask someone all the time. But hey I get it, it's informative and pretty interesting.

The story is alright I guess, it's about a Japanese-American US Navy sailor aboard the USS George Washington (then newly stationed to Japan) to visit his Japanese grandparents for the first time ever in Japan. It's clearly meant to be a metaphor for wanting the Japanese people to accept a mutual relationship with America so if that stuff turns you off, then move along.

The other characters are alright I guess, I thought they were hinting at an on-ship romance with another sailor on ship but she introduces herself as a married woman with a husand and kids. I guess I was reading too much romance manga these days lol.

Anyways why am I looking so deeply into what is at the end of the day an information brochure told in manga story form? I don't know. Anyways, it's a mildly entertaining read if you're a military nut. 5/10
