Like Golgo 13? You may like Yukemuri Sniper (Steam Sniper), Yuuhou Hijikata and Tadashi Matsumori's popular 1999 action manga, which is now getting adapted into a 24-episode TV drama starting in April.


The basic concept of the manga is that a successful assassin-- Gen-san --attempts to retire and work at an isolated onsen ryoukan (traditional Japanese hotel). But as one Amazon reviewer puts it, a tiger can't wash off his stripes, and a variety of strange stories revealing the human condition occur in Gen-san's general vicinity.


The drama will be written and directed by Hitoshi Oone, who has directed a number of popular dramas, including the recent Vampire Host (or Vampire Gigolo, as some called it) and the manga adaptation Akihabara@DEEP.

Ooh, I do like Golgo-13.  This dude looks like he has a kinda large-ish face.
