IWGP (japan drama 2000)+special and manga
I have posted before for the drama info though, so i will only give the info about the manga/graphic novel and the special episode.
for the manga :Ikebukuro West Gate Park (池袋ウエストゲートパーク), usually referred to by its initials IWGP, is a series of urban mystery novels by Ira Ishida. It was adapted into a very successful TV series directed by Tsutsumi Yukihiko, and then a manga, released by Digital Manga Publishing in English. The series revolves around 20 year old Makoto, who frequently gets involved in highly dangerous situations, usually against his own judgment. Along for the ride are his best buddies Shun, Masa, and Takashi, the enigmatic leader of a local gang. The manga loosely follows the TV series, having the same story arcs, but focusing less on the inter-gang tensions. click here for more.
for the special episode : the setting is 3years later after the longest day in the ikebukuro. where most of the gangs member and the society has changed.well,to be honest i haven't watch it fully so i will add later.but for the drama series is worth watching,recommended by me for those japanese drama lover.click here for link to drama info.the link is the original source of the synopsis article,I just want to share it with the reader aside to my personal comment.well i watched it,and its quite boring actually,and i only recommend u to watch only the series although if u want to bear with it u can satisfy your curiosity of whats happening to everyone,except the chief of police yokoyama.
