Mudazumo Naki Kaikaku [Not Completed]

Post-Post Edit: Eh? Ehh??? Mudazumo Naki Kaikaku is NOT OVER. It was merely one ARC that was over, at the end of Chapter 48! I hadn’t seen updates after that for two months, so I thought it was over (after all, Hitler died…) but it wasn’t!! So, I’ll continue blogging Mudazumo Naki Kaikaku WEEKLY starting from Chapter 55. I’ve already updated the list below to include all people who’ve made an appearance between the start and Chapter 55, but no longer after that. After all, this isn’t the actual review…

That’s right. It’s the end of the best manga I’ve ever read.

Mudazumo Naki Kaikaku (lit. Reform with No Wasted Draws), or better known as ‘The Legend of Koizumi’, is a neutrally good, great, amazing, and brilliant masterpiece.

And guess what it’s about?

George H.W. Bush.

Playing Mahjong.

Though of course,

Anyways, Bush isn’t the main character.

The main character is Junichiro Koizumi. No, not David Suzuki. He doesn’t even appear.

That’s what the title of this is based on; Seiiki Naki Kaikaku, ‘Reform with no Sanctuary’, is Koizumi’s political slogan.

His portraiture is too awesome to portray here, so I’ll portray some other, say… not-so-awesome-looking people, such as this guy:

Anyways, the manga’s not just about Koizumi versus Bush, because that’d be boring. The main antagonist of this series?

Adolf Hitler.

That’s right, Adolf Hitler.

And he’s on the moon.

If you think you’ve had enough of this madness, wait to see the complete compiled list of every single historical character that ever appears.

Sugimura Taizo
Sato Yukari
Condoleezza Rice

Actually, in the entire story, there are only five recurring non-historical characters:

From left to right; some unnamed girl working in the Japanese Space Program or something that made her first appearance at like Chapter 50 (there are only 49 Chapters), a moon Nazi, another moon Nazi, and a Ukranian person. Who isn’t a moon Nazi. One of the moon nazis’ twin brother is also non-historical, but he dies so nobody cares about him.

The entire manga reeks of epic awesomeness – from start to finish, there’s battles and battles and battles without a pause. The action just keeps on coming and I have no idea how they managed to make playing Mahjong so awesome.

Even if you read only the first chapter (where really, nothing big happens; compared to the Pope vs. Hitler chapter and the final chapter, what Koizumi is doing is a piece of cake), you’ll instantly realize how formidable this is. There’s battles, and action, and dramatic heart-wrenching sacrifices. There’s Nazis, dead Nazis, zombie Nazis, scientist Nazis, and clones of Nazis. There’s UFOs, people’s heads getting bitten off by sharks, hypothermia, memory loss, red mercury, plutonium explosions, nerve toxin, high-tech camera surveillance, uninhabited islands, Nazi spies, Vatican spies, illegal Vatican Nazi-smuggling, Korean people, and people from Kazakhstan.

Tiny chest. Ha ha ha.

Not enough? There’s robots, mahjong-playing robots, rockets, nuclear missiles, giant space cannons, supercomputers, subatomic nuclear quantum (I know, I know) physics, satellites, ghosts, ambulances, temples, spirit-summoning, occult stuff, mind-reading, future-telling (for both the Pope and Hitler), hidden needles in fingers, operas, electrocutions, delinquents from Yale university, baseball, hospitals, underground mahjong rings, depleted uranium mahjong tiles and people getting their arms on fire because they try to scrape the drawings off the uranium mahjong tiles, cheating, mahjong, mahjong tiles, mahjong games, games, mahjong, mahjong, mahjong…

…and Mahjong.

Overall Rating: 9/10 (Legendary)

Post-Post Postnote: Yes, it is legendary. But as I said at the beginning, it’s not over. Who knows?! Maybe it’ll devolve into a story about a teenage delinquent who goes off to kill ghosts with his giant oversized sword. Then, it wouldn’t be legendary (except it might be the legend of a train-crash), but at least it /was/…
