News: Mr. Liar's political quiz

by on August 15, 2007

onita.JPG Atsushi Onita has appeared in tons of videogames. As a death match pioneer, he was a mainstay in wrestling games like Fire Pro and Toukon Retsuden. Now as a recently retired politician, he’s got his own game for DS. Atsushi Onita’s Political Quiz. “Anytime, anywhere” is the tagline on the promotional posters. Good to know. Hopefully the game includes a lot of loud Onita voice samples to underscore one’s ignorance of the Japanese system of government.

You really have to know about Atsushi Onita here. He became famous as the star of Frontier Martial-Arts Wrestling, where he created the barbed wire death match. Though he dropped out of high school, Onita returned in his 40s to finish his education. His charismatically aggressive personality generated a cult following that eventually translated to political success when he won the 19th House of Councilors election as a representative of the Liberal Democratic Party in 2001. One of his first major acts in office was to launch a post-9/11 humanitarian mission to Afghanistan, where he performed professional wrestling matches in crudely constructed rings made of sticks and rope, to benefit the children, he said. This was all documented on film. Onita is also rumored to have broken Wilt Chamberlain’s record of 20,000 women banged. Fittingly, his exit from politics was forced by a recent sex scandal in which he was alleged to have used government accommodations to host a threesome with an AV actress and a female employee of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transportation. So, actually, this game is the least interesting thing Onita has ever done.
