"Friedrichtown: Due to the blending of many races, its infested by destruction and slaughter: a den of crime."

The writer is one ignorant fuckhead. He see's Japan as this perfect land free of crime, and why? Because they have a strict anti-immigration culture. What an idiot.

The obvious subtext to Jackals is that multiculturalism doesn't work. And will just lead to ghetto's and tribalism. Get a clue KIM Byung Jin you dumb fuck nazi.

Yeah, I thought that, too. That certainly killed a lot of the series' appeal, for me. Although, that said, I wouldn't go so far as to call the mangaka a nazi.

But it has some truth in it. Multicultural nation if not done right, can lead to all of those things.If not done right, different societies or races, with different ideals/religions will always clash. People taking revenge on other people, racial conflicts - its all reality - look at what happens in USA, first we were beating up black people, now every muslim is target too?

Unless people throw away the idea of nationality=stereotype=event=character=whatever_else, multicultural nations just won't work.


Of course I agree that the way its portrayed in Jackals is a bit...overboard, but its not that much overboard to call the author Nazi

yes it does have some truth in it. living in canada, a 'multicultural nation', we ARE co-existing, but it doesn't mean there isn't any aggression between races. other times, different races mix seamlessly.

think about it. the majority of people living in japan are...japanese...
is he thinking that all multicultural societies don't work? maybe. but we all know that not everywhere is like this cicero city.
OR, he could just be using this method of portraying this kind of racial discrimination to amplifly the situation, so that the story will work.

I absolutely disagree!
Is it so racist? haha. Then Bible is racist too. Babel was destroyed because there were ppl of many nations.
This story is a fantasy, so don give it deep meaning.

The Bible isn't a very good standard for political correctness in the first place.

But anyways, when various races first come together, there is violence. It's kind of what always happens, so I'm not sure how having that as the premise of the story is the least bit ignorant. It shows decent recognition of the way the world works. Also note: the main character is an immigrant's child, and is probably of mixed race. Not exactly the ideal protagonist for a fascist story.

Absolutely agree :) This discussion is good advertismet of Jackal manga (can imagine some autors / mangakas will write provocative story just for having an advertisment)...

Kim Byung Jin is mainly just the artist. If you wanna blame somebody and call them a Nazi, blame the Japanese author Murata Shinya.

LMAO, way to fail.

The backdrop of being a city of multicultural races is the explanation to why two different groups of organized crime is duking it out; ergo the European vs the Asian. It's pretty much La Cosa Nostra meeting the Triad.

Nothing racist about it.

I'm guessing you haven't read more than two or three chapters of the manga before posting this right?.......
