Sengoku Yankee gag comedy about fools in Japan's warring-states period

Mudazumo Naki Kaikaku manga creator Hideki Ohwada has launched his Sengoku Yankee gag comedy manga in the third issue of Kadokawa Shoten's Young Ace magazine on Friday. The story centers on "foolish" military commanders during Japan's strife-torn Sengoku era or Warring States period. ("Yankee" is a Japanese slang for a juvenile delinquent or punk.)

The publisher Takeshobo had announced last month that an anime adaptation of the Mudazumo Naki Kaikaku manga has been green-lit. In this political parody, a fictionalized version of Prime Minister Junichirō Koizumi plays a special form of "mahjong diplomacy" against foreign adversaries such as George W. Bush, Kim Jong-il, Vladimir Putin, Margaret Thatcher, and others.

In the same third issue of Young Ace, Yūki Kodama is starting a new vampire comedy manga called Blood-Rad. The issue also bundles a "Osada-bon" booklet about the artwork of Neon Genesis Evangelion manga creator and Summer Wars character designer Yoshiyuki Sadamoto.
