15 Volumes – Completed

Plot Summary
Two young men unsatisfied with the condition of their country Japan. Though prosperous, it’s rotten in the inside. They vowed to change their country. The only way is take hold of power. Asami strive as a politician, targeting to be Prime Minister of Japan in his thirties; something impossible to do in the current Japan politic system. While Hojo strive in the underworld to be the leader of Japanese Yakuza.

These two ambitious and ruthless young men challenge the system to do the impossible. Facing sly politicians who are able to do anything to smooth their path. They challenge the dangerous world of Yakuza. Blessed with intelligence and irresistable charms, they attracted lots of supporter.

Personal Opinion
This is one of the best manga I’ve ever read. A great saga of ambitious young men. It’s a type of story that will draw your attention immediately. It gets straight to the point: conquer Japan to reform Japan by playing by the system cleverly. In short, it’s a battle of wits.

The fact that everything they do and say are all logical should make you believe that all of it are actually possible to accomplish even in the real world. It feels like reading a biography of the founding fathers of a nation. Someone who has great visions for his country.

It is unfortunate that this kind of story always fall into mature readers category. You can’t help with such sadist and sexual content lingering all over the story. It would be nice if this kind of manga can be enjoyed by all range of age.

Honestly, this is one of the manga that made me thrill and shaken. So without doubt I give it 4 thumbs up. Note that, this is the first manga that I give perfect score. 😉
