Red Eyes (by Jun Shindo)

Tried to find a threat on this (I swore I thought) it was here, but I'll make one now. If anyone finds it, let me know and I'll ask the mods to merge it.

Quite an interesting one. Based on the fact that...

Hm... that's funny, there seems to be some strange discrepancy between the official versions and the current english scans.

In the TW official licensed version (and source japanese) the *** turned into the CPDU (Circum-Pacific Democratic Union) while in eng it was DUPE (Democratic Union for Peace of Earth). Guess the translators of english were fooling around (dupe, hah!).

Red Eyes is quite an atrocity of a manga, filled with some rather absurd moments. A commander of a special forces unit is betrayed by his unit, framed to make it look like he killed allied troops. Then his country surrenders to the enemy who he supposedly sided with, yet he is still sentenced to death (shouldn't the enemy see him as a hero and pressure the surrendered country for his release?). While escaping from death row to go on a revenge quest (against the chief traitor, who conveniently turns out to have a secret agenda having to do with world domination/destruction) he ironically commits the exact crime he was sentenced for - killing soldiers from his own country. While he's at it, he caps some other death row inmates for good measure. Later he picks up a 15 year old war orphan girl and manages to stain her hands with blood, too. A mad scientist hands over his best combat armor to him despite knowing that he's a death row escapee. Somewhere along the way he loses sight of his goal to the point that he questions what he fights for, but not before joining a rebel army which welcomes him as a hero despite his reputation having been dragged through the mud (well, they do need his strength after all). It had some promise at the very beginning but then just degenerates into god knows what.

It's cleché no doubt, personally I'm more drawn to the settings.

Manga Sketchbook did the translation with another group IIRC.

Anyway, I liked it because of the badassery and since a lot of real world stuff there like the GIGN. Except that it doesn't have links to the French one since the manga implied that it was
