Just started watching 2nd GIG and was told by a friend that its based on actual events. Is this true? If so please do give me some details.

Its unlikely that the story of '2nd GIG' is based on any single real world event, but is probably inspired by the Korean immigrant issue. The only significant minority group in Japan, resident Korean 'Guest Workers' and their children born in Japan, by immigration law cannot become Japanese citizens and are still considered Korean nationals by birth, even in the case where they have lived their entire lives in Japan...

Perhaps your friend means the association in the story between the Individual Eleven and the reference to the May 15th Incident of 1932 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/May_15_Incident)*
