Friday Night Non-Fights: Gun-Toting Child Assassins!

We’re once again in the middle of a short break between rounds of regular Friday Night Fights, but just because SpaceBooger has called a temporary halt to the violence-drenched festivities doesn’t mean I’m under any obligation to obey. I always seem to have trouble finding the really violent stuff on these off-weeks, but I think I got the stuff this time. We’re going for something from a Japanese comic book. We all know how fantastically violent manga is, right? So this one’s probably going to be a record-setting explosion of violence, brutality, and body counts.

So let’s get the battle rolling — from 2005’s Yotsuba&!, Volume 2 by Kiyohiko Azuma, here’s the blood-curdling tale of five-year-old Yotsuba watching one too many gangster movies and gunning down her own father!





What the –?! A water gun?! That wasn’t violent at all! I can assure you, I’m just as shocked about this as you are. I’d write a stern letter of complaint… if I weren’t too busy cooing about how cute the whole thing was.

(In semi-related news, there’s a vote-off going on this weekend at SpaceBooger’s place to pick the best fight of the past 12 weeks. Head on over, check out the finalists, and vote for your favorite.)
