A view on American politics you won't get anywhere else. Provocative commentary on today's real Washington power struggles. Eagle is a story that combines an insider's detail with an outsider's perspective on the epic contest.
Eagle: The Making of an Asian-American President is a political manga by Kaiji Kawaguchi serialized in Big Comic, a seinen manga magazine published by Shogakukan. Its plot, following a Japanese American senator as he runs for president of the United States, was thoroughly researched by Kawaguchi, including during several weeks of travel in the U.S. during the campaigns for the 2000 election.
Eagle takes place during the 2000 presidential election. Some of the characters are entirely original, such as Senator Kenneth Yamaoka (D-NY) and the series protagonist, Japanese journalist Takashi Jo .
Others are fictionalized depictions of real people, such as campaign advisor George Tuck (based on Dick Tuck), Democratic Vice-President Al Noah (based on Al Gore), and the current president Bill Clayton (based on Bill Clinton), who hails from Arkansas, has faced multiple scandals, and has a politically ambitious wife named Ellery Clayton (based on Hillary Clinton).
Kawaguchi was reported inspired to create the manga after watching the 1992 documentary The War Room.
