The mainstream media narrative and straight obsession with “mighty” Russian President Vladimir Putin and his presumed endeavors is no secret, but it has provided for some interesting results in modern culture.
It is no secret that the “evil mastermind” Vladimir Putin is a “dictator” and quite possibly be the devil, if Western diplomats and MSM are asked.
Despite all of that, it would also appear that the attempt of building a negative image of Putin has turned him into a sort of an icon that opposes globalism.
One of the most recent and interesting incarnations of “mighty” Vladimir Putin is him as the main character in a manga (which is the Japanese equivalent of the American comic book).
HINT: Manga panels are read from right to left.
The manga is called “Isekai Putin” or the “Ride-On King,” [READ IT HERE] and it features Vladimir Putin, but under the name Alexander Puchinov. The likeness can’t be mistaken and it’s quite obviously the “mighty” Russian leader, just into an alternate reality.
The summary of the fictional work is the following:
The brawny president of Pursia, Alexander Purchinov, is bored of politics and wants new challenges. After an incident, he wakes up in a magical world where untamed beasts and creatures abound.
The country of Pursia is in shock, meanwhile its president is blissfully exploring a fantasy world. After all, similarly to MSM narrative that Russia is under the complete and total control of Putin, Pursia is also in disarray since it’s sole driving force has vanished.
Pursia, similarly to Russia in the Washington-led establishment’s narrative is a country ruled by violence and the iron fist of its government, of which Alexander Purchinov is president for life.
“Alexander always desires to be dominant, and “ride” things, whether literally or figuratively. Now that he has already ridden his country, his next target is a fantasy world that has orcs, wyverns, and centaurs.”
Now, to turn to some of the actual content of the manga. In its initial pages, the stage is set: Prusia is a Central Asian country (?), which was founded 15 years ago and has freed itself from the global superpowers thanks to its military power.
Alexander Purchinov (Putin) is the sole reason of the country’s independence, he “rode” the country to freedom and authoritarian order.
But Alexander is unhappy, he has too many responsibilities leading the country, but in his heart of hearts he wishes to go exploring, only if he had some time.
In the beginning the political process of Pursia is shown, the air force needs modernizing because enemies could take advantage of the weakness of the Pursian Air Force. But the health system also needs an overhaul.
Finally, a consensus is reached: Purchinov decides that the country should focus on building spacecraft, since he hasn’t ridden one and must do so in his lifetime.
Despite his egotistical nature, the citizens of Pursia respected him:
Following that it shows that Pursia is so authoritarian that guns are regulated, and when terrorists, who were highly likely “moderate rebels,” tried to kill him they had to resort to a truck.
Naturally, mighty Alexander tackled the truck and destroyed it, all the while stomping so hard that he misplaced the pavement on the street.
But that is when disaster struck: the head of his own statue broke apart due to the impact from the trucks and fell on top of him.
And that is when the true story begins: Alexander Purchinov woke up in a fantasy world. The first of his adventures included the mighty president defeated a dragon and then riding it, and feeling excited since it’s something he hasn’t ridden before.
Following is a short summary of the story up until now, with 10 chapters having come out and some of the more interesting panels:
The people of Pursia are starting to get worried of the whereabouts of their president. Meanwhile, in the fantasy world Alexander Purchinov made friends with two women, a knight and a magician.
Even the fantasy world characters know that “Putin” is a demon, calling the head of his statue that is also somehow in the fantasy world a “statue of a demon,” which Purchinov has to clarify that it is only a “statue of me.”
Following that our heroes went to a city and had to charge a magical lantern, Purchnov having mastered karate used his ki to power it, but it was too strong to handle, so the lantern burst.
In the fantasy world, Alexander Purchinov appears to not be as evil as in the real world and helps enslaved races such as centaurs regain their freedom, but mostly because he wishes to ride a centaur, rather than through the good of his heart.
He even refused to kill the enemy, rather just knocking them out, trying to make up for the “killing and deception” he had to do back home.
His adventures don’t end there, he then helps some other fantasy world denizens be rescued from some orcs and ogres, by using a special “Presidential-style Martial Art,” since being President is absolutely everything that needs to be explain his character as a person.
He is also concerned that the enemy is fighting against him 6 on 1, not because he might lose, but because “sparing their life is a bit difficult.”
Finally, he manages to also ride an ogre, by using a special “Presidential-style” move.
Naturally, it wouldn’t be a work of fiction related to Russia without a bear involved, which “Putin” handily defeats, with a judo throw, of course.
In his first time entering a dungeon he has to fight against a massive bone dragon and its master. For the first time, Purchninov comes across a foe that he can’t judo throw. So he remembers the teachings of his old master who said that sadly he had the body of a “common man,” and had to use “the power of the land” to defeat larger enemies.
Which he does, when the actual earth gives Alexander Purchninov strength to defeat the enemy dragon.
The President’s greatness does not end here, instead of destroying the bone dragon, instead due to his spiritual power, the dragon is reborn and Purchinov expresses hope that they could meet as “friends.”
In the 10 chapters that have come out, Alexander Purchinov has made many friends and defeated many monsters, protecting those in need. Thus, the work of fiction began as a sort of political commentary drawing lines between the MSM narrative of Russia being a authoritarian regime and then developed “mighty Putin” into a positive character that appears to be the savior of the fantasy world.
