Yugo the Negotiator (15) (Japan 2006 Dir. Kishi & Hanai 75 min)

In any hostage crisis, send for Yugo Beppu, master negotiator and man of many talents who walks the knife-edge between criminals and authority to try and bring the victims out alive. Hired by a hostage's beautiful daughter to end the crisis, Yugo plays a dangerous game as the go-between who must bargain with powerful government forces and ruthless guerrillas in the blazing deserts of Pakistan. This suspenseful contemporary drama demonstrates that anime is not all big-eyed girls and robots. Based on the original manga by Shinji Makari and Shu Akana which has run for more than a decade, this adaptation reveals an edgy, more realistic side to anime.
