Legend of Koizumi plays Mahjong with your world leaders


Was Celebrity Poker not enough for you? Do you prefer your major diplomatic decisions to be decided based on Chinese gambling games? If so, then you're gonna love Mudazumo Naki Kaikaku -The Legend of Koizumi. In this mahjong manga written and drawn by gag manga artist Oowada Hideki, world leaders fight it out in the most intense games of mahjong ever played.

These world leaders include former Japanese Prime Minister Koizumi Jun'ichiro, current Prime Minister Aso Taro, North Korean leader Kim Jong-il, Russian Prime Minister Vladamir Putin, and of course, American Presidents George W. Bush and his father George H. W. Bush. Plus, according to the Canned Dogs article that brought this manga into the limelight, the pope makes an appearance in the sequel series: Kindai Mahjong Original.

Make sure you check out the post, which features quite a few intense, ridiculous, and not altogether flattering depictions of your favorite leaders. Fantastic stuff.
