"Negotiation means, you turn words into weapons"

This is the realization of the popular comic Yu-go that was published in Kondasha Afternoon Magazine over a period of 10 years.

Beppu Yuugo is the world's most successfull negotiator. His only weapons are "words." Yuugo doesn't kill people. Neither does he threaten them with brute violence. With rich knowledge and a calm judgement, he believes in the humans inside them. Doing only that he has managed many dangerous negotiations successfully until now. Now two of the many episodes have been chosen very carefully, one taking place in Russia, the other one in Pakistan. In the burning desert and the freezing Siberia Yuugo begins his negotiations.

It truly feels like Yugo is actually in Pakistan or Russia and is on a quest to do his job, and everyone ...

Mixed Feelings

Yugo the Negotiator is an obscure series. I mean a REALLY obscure series! The only reason I had even heard of it was that it was the favorite anime of an old youtube reviewer named Jaded Otaku, who had a show called "What's Wrong with Anime?" This guy was a troll LEGEND! His videos are gone because butthurt fanboys flagged all of his videos hundreds of times until Youtube removed them. However, there are still hilarious "response videos" of weaboos foaming at the mouth with rage and cursing his name that are still floating around Youtube! For a time he was the king of the ...
