I find it funny that a former yakuza is complaining about the remaining Japanese people becoming refuges and bandits. Sure, being refuges is not optimum, but yakuza are bandits... they're just modern bandits. So, why the hell is he complaining. Fun. The hypocrisy throughout is such fun.

Oh, what takitogr said about Jesus... he was not kidding. Impotent Jesus is here, and his name is Azuma.

In other words, this is a gag manga from the get go.

this is really crap...the entire plot and especially the execution is horrible and laughable...thanx to that i had some nice laughs in the start of the volume (it's not supposed to be a comedy....it's really cheesy....it tries to provide a moral lesson to japanese people to not boast about their good economy and their developed country in general, but fails miserably...the characterization is the most horrible ive ever seen...characters seem as two-dimensional as paper cutouts....and it has jesus inside! no, i'm kidding but u know what i mean if u've read m-s version of the manga...lol

Perhaps too short

This is an ok manga but it ultimately focuses slightly too much on action and at the end of the oneshot hasn't developed it's characters or themes quite as much as it could have.

Perhaps most interesting is the fact that the story seems to combine elements from both of it's creators. We see elements of Buronson's other work in the post apocalyptic elements (Fist of the North Star) and the themes of Japan's need to reform (Sanctuary). Similarly artist Kentaro Miura's primary work Berserk is evoked slightly by the mainly medieval armoury and bulky protagonist.

From those I would advise the manga to people who are fnas of the mentioned work

Ultimately I would advise that those living in countries where it is not available (or dare I say it, those who are not phased by violations of copyright law) download it in some form if they are really curious. As for those living in coutries where the manga is sold I wouldn't recomend paying particularly much as the short story ultimately doesn't have the push that can keep a short oneshot engraved in one's mind.

This manga is from the guy who has drawn Berserk, so for Miura fans it might be worth a look. I thing this Manga is nothing special and not really good. If you have nothing else to read give it a try or don't...
