Yugo The Negotiator DVD Volume 2: Pakistan 2: Honor
“Highly Addictive. It’s Fresh, It’s Interesting, and It’s Realistic. Don’t Miss This!”
Yugo the Negotiator is an anime tour of the world’s hot spots, where terrorism is hatched and kidnappings are commonplace. Our hero is not a dashing spy or unstoppable soldier, but a globe-trotting negotiator whose mastery of multiple languages, psychology, and iron will set him apart from all others in his trade.
Based upon the original manga by Shinji Makari and Shu Akana, Yugo the Negotiator breaks into a fresh new genre of anime by featuring a highly realistic storyline and setting. Sometimes, a strong wit and a sharp tongue are the deadliest weapons a soldier can wield.
Synopsis: When negotiations erupt into all-out war, one man’s resolution becomes a matter of life and death! Yugo’s negotiations in Pakistan are off to a rocky start, as he is captured by the anti-government dacoits as a prisoner rather than received as an emissary. Sentenced to roast in the sun, he must survive gruesome torture to prove his worth as a hero to the fearsome dacoit leader, Yusuf Ali Mesa. To make matters worse, bloodthirsty Lieutenant Colonel Shadle from the Pakistani Army is hunting Yugo down at every turn to stop the negotiations and wipe out the dacoits. In a war of words, mind, and military might, Yugo must show his adversaries what a true hero is made of.
