"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.

Generally I fall into the range who is to lazy to write a review, however after stumbling upon this series I am compelled to write one.

Yugo the Negotiator is simply amazing. It will keep you at the edge of your seat from start to finish. The series can be broken down into two arcs. Each are is different however the feel is similar (in that they both rock). What I found very interesting was at the beginning (prior to starting the series) I worried that it being only 13 episodes it wouldn't be sufficient time to build a solid story however this anime feels very read more

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 read more

4. The chain of power in Russian army.
5. The dynamic display read more

A solid mystery/ suspense series, Yugo the Negotiator features the titular character of the series taking two different cases where he is trying to work out the release of a hostage from hostile foreign groups set in Pakistan and Russia. This series does quite a bit to stand out from many conventional anime titles. First off, Yugo comes off as a crafty and intelligent man who does enough at researching the mentalities and cultural significance that individuals within both countries would have in regards to their personal beliefs. This is essential as his very profession is quite the dangerous one where he puts his life read more
