some of them are 2nd and 3rd generation yakuza though. It's way more industrial than most of the other mafia syndicates. They buy up stocks in Japanese car companies and appear to be more legitimate than the others.

They're still criminals and thieves, though.

I got it thanks.



Yubitsume

The manner comes originally from the Bakuto. If a gambler couldn't pay back a debt or something like that the persons tip of the little finger got cut off, which damage the hand and the person could not hold his sword as well as before. Also that way other people could see if a person haven't paid a debt, which could bring certain problems, since gambling always been prohibited in Japan. Yubitsume is when you cut of one of your fingers and send it to the Kumicho. This is done as an apology for disobedience. It can be done to atone for a wrongdoing but can also be done to spare one of your "children". When you have done something that your Kumicho dislikes you take a sharp item, cut off a fingertip, wrap it in paper and send it to the Kumicho and beg for his forgiveness. If it's the first time you cut off the little fingertip there after it becomes the next little finger and so on. Because of that you may see yakuza members that are without several of his fingers. This helps often at wrongdoings, but if you've done something all to seriously, as e.g betray the entire clan, there´s nothing that can help you from becoming a statistic.

i live in japan and the yakuza are not as bad as ud think, unless they have something against you. Its not made up of teen or kids there just a bunch of punks trying to prove something. The yakuza are like business men who just do work that is against the law ^_^ my master whos doing my full chest and back piece is an ex yakuza. he told me they just do it for status and money and when they get to old they get out but they do have to cut off a few ligaments for tribute to exit lol
But their honor and loyalty is really respectable.


He does good work btw ^_^

People say they are badass yet i don't hear them on the news or even mention them that they may have cause an incident.
But, i'm not really gonna judge them because, life is random and i might get caught up with them. Not saying all rumors are true
but yea. P.S If they are they must be underground gang or very sneaky.

I've been reading about Yakuza for years. They are obsessed with Jingi, meaning honor and humanity. Try the Yakuza video game. It's like playing as a character from a takakura ken or sonny chiba flick.

I think that Jingi is a good idea, but it's rarely enforced. It makes for good films though.


I played that Yakuza game. Well, there's a saying, "when an organization gets bigger, someone inside will eventually betray."



Edit: A crap. I already quoted you way before about this. >.<


Anyway,

There's an old Filipino mentality where we never sue because our land is ruled by money. We use the rule of "Ubusan ng Lahi" to our enemies. It means "Clannicide." It's the Filipino way of revenge: you kill your enemy including his family and all his relatives. My dad is "laking-Batangas" so he has "clannicide" mentality when anyone in his family and relatives get hurt or worse. ^_^ But, he's pissing me off, so I might kill him first. n_n
