Mudazumo Naki Kaikaku Manga Gets Anime Green-Lit (Updated)

posted on by Egan Loo
"Politics x mahjong action" with real-life political figures by Hideki Ohwada

The wraparound jacket band on the second volume of Hideki Ohwada's Mudazumo Naki Kaikaku "politics x mahjong action" manga has announced that an anime adaptation of the manga has been green-lit. The English subtitle of the manga is "The Legend of Koizumi" — a reference to the manga's main character, who is a fictionalized version of Japan's 89th prime minister, Junichirō Koizumi. In this political parody, 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.

Ohwada had previously created the Beach de Q, Dai Mahou Touge, and Kidō Senshi Gundam-san manga.
