Happy Birthday to Legendary Manga Author Go Nagai

If you love rocket punches, gattai sequences and distasteful manga, wish Go Nagai a happy 67th

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.
