Akagari: The Red Rat in Hollywood Manga by Donguri no Ie's Osamu Yamamoto Enters Final Arc

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Manga about Red Scare, blacklist in Cold War U.S. launched in May 2017

This year's 10th issue of Shogakukan's Big Comic Original magazine revealed on Saturday that Osamu Yamamoto's Akagari: The Red Rat in Hollywood (Hunting Reds: The Red Rat in Hollywood) manga has entered its final arc.

The manga depicts the efforts of the United States' House Un-American Activities which led to a blacklist of Hollywood film industry professionals over suspicions of them being Communists or Communist sympathizers. The story also follows the attempts to fight or circumvent the Hollywood blacklist from within the industry.

Yamamoto launched the manga in Big Comic Original in May 2017. Shogakukan published the manga's seventh compiled book volume on March 20.

Yamamoto's Donguri no Ie manga ran from 1993 to 1997, and Yamamoto was also the chief director and writer of a 1997 anime film adaptation of the manga.
