If Osamu Tezuka is the "God of Manga," then Go Nagai is manga's legendary dirty uncle. Claims to fame include creating the first cockpit piloted mecha series with Mazinger Z, co-creating combining mecha with Getter Robo, innovating magic girls for male audiences with Cutie Honey, and being a bête noire for Japanese PTAs as far back as his vulgar breakout Shameless School.
So, if you love rocket punches, gattai sequences and distasteful manga, wish Go Nagai a happy 67th birthday.
