Welcome to World War III… Mahjong style!

When the political world revolves around Mahjong and the fate of humanity rests on it, you know Mahjong is serious business… in a funny way.

In a nutshell, Mudazumo is a silly manga that parodies the cutthroat nature of global politics. Famous figures such as George W. Bush (and his Papa!), Kim Jong Il, Vladimir Putin, Junichiro Koizumi, Adolf Hitler, and even the Pope battle it out in a game of high stakes Mahjong where they can wager anything from cash to F-15 fighter jets!

Don’t be fooled by the seinen label. Other than the subject matter, this is extremely shounen-esque. read more
