Description
Two young men vow to transform the destiny of Japan, by any means. As children, they survived the horrors of the Cambodian killing fields together. Now, can they topple the leaders of both the Japanese Parliament and the yakuza crime syndicate?

Although cold and calculating when need be, Hojo and Asami exemplify the traits their colleagues lack: loyalty to friends, compassion for the downtrodden...and an irresistible way with women.

Deputy Police Chief Ishihara sets out to expose their ingenious machinations, but instead falls helplessly in love with Hojo...

Note:
While this was originally 12 volumes in Japanese, when translated into English by Viz it was printed three ways: first in comic book form (each issue had 2 chapters), second in a 5-part 14-vol compilation of the comic books, and finally in a 9 volume manga series. Because the translation is so early, the books were flipped to English left-to-right orientation.

The nine English volumes correspond to these compilation parts, floppy issues, and original chapters:

V1: Part 1, Issues 1-4, Chapters 01-12
V2: Part 1, Issues 5-9, Chapters 13-27
V3: Part 2, Issues 1-5, Chapters 01-13
V4: Part 2, Issues 5-9, Chapters 14-26
V5: Part 3, Issues 1-7, Chapters 01-13
V6: Part 3, Issues 7-8, Chapters 14-16; Part 4, Issues 1-5, Chapters 01-09
V7: Part 4, Issues 5-7, Chapters 10-14; Part 5, Issues 1-3, Chapters 01-05
V8: Part 5, Issues 3-8, Chapters 06-15
V9: Part 5, Issues 8-13, Chapters 16-22

This manga is definitely worth a read. There are lots of political elements to it as well as intelectual depth. The character development is great.

This is something that people who are even remotely attracted to the genre should read, or at least go through the first volume.

This is a great read and I really enjoy Ryoichi Ikegami's distinctive style of drawing. The manga is both an action-packed political thriller and a moving drama about the commitment between two friends. Highly recommended!
