Untranslated Go Nagai manga, and Nagai general
Since there's an official list of Nagai manga
it's pretty easy to see which works were by Ishikawa and which were by Nagai.
For example, ?????????? is credited to Go Nagai on its cover, but Dynamic Pro doesn't list it as a Nagai work and it's pretty easy to tell that it by Ishikawa due to the art. Same thing with Getter Robo Saga.
Works that were actual collaborations between Ken Ishikawa and Go Nagai are listed as such on Nagai's manga bibliography as ???:??
Ken Ishikawa's Cutey Honey
I wanted to share it anyway. His name is on it and Devilman Grimoire was posted too.
Is this the same girl from Enma-kun? She was pretty pedo.
>The story was never concluded because Ishikawa left Dynamic Pro for some time. Ishikawa worked as assistant on Harenchi Gakuen and Abashiri Ikka. Two mangas, Gakuen Taikutsu Otoko and Gakuen Bangaichi, finished on the same date (1970-09-22) when Ishikawa left Dynamic Pro.
Pic is from Kishin apparently.
Dunno. You can read about it here since there are some english posts:
I liked the art in Devilman Lady. Very nicely detailed, muscled girls, and nice monster designs.
When Nagai tells the story of Cutey Honey would have have Honey's hair?
Mini Not Akira sure is cool.
does this guy ever get a name?
>Teachers against students
>School where teachers rule over the students
>Fucked up tournaments
So someone on Tumblr apparently scanned the Ken Ishikawa version of Cutey Honey. The bad news is that the link is fucking dead. I sent them a question asking if they'd reupload it, though.
They also did another Cutey Honey manga: http://kawaruwayo.tumblr.com/post/84895830654/kawaruwayo-to-commerate-honeys-40th
>say one good thing about it.
What about it? I like the art direction.
Yeah. I hope he comes back to it...

>Demon takes kill childhood friend and take his body as a meat suit
>So cute <3 <3 (Proceed to suck his demonic cock)
Devilman G's Miki confirmed as worst Miki. Her moe antics don't help
If you don't mind, please have a look at Gekiman, and see if it interests you.
Basically, Nagai's autobiography in manga.
The first chapter is indeed translated.
Bite Me Scanlations collaborated with Dynamic Pro Scanlations to release it.
However, due to a fallout, they stopped collaborating and Dynamic Pro Scanlations released the chapter on their own.
Then Bite Me said they were going to continue it by themselves. Then, much later, someone asked them, and they said they dropped it because it was "boring".
History is so boring, rite
>God Mazinger Manga in English
Got a link?
My google-fu is failing me.
We're talking about Gekiman, m8.
Well fuck me.
Is any part of the God Mazinger Manga translated anywhere?
Nope. The first 2 episodes of the anime are translated though!
I know how you feel, man. I, too, crave dinosaurs and mechs.
>The first 2 episodes of the anime are translated though!
Thanks. I'll have to check those out.
You forgot the part where Project Bite Me was making up parts of the translation and claiming they were personally scanning the series when in fact they were just downloading available raws from Share.
At least you got the sub-par manga.
Violence Jack appears in some American talk show.
Considering I finished Shin Mazinger yesterday this is fucking hilarious.
So I asked that person on Tumblr again about the Ken Ishikawa version of Cutey Honey linking them to their post of it, but they didn't reply. Anyone else want to give it a shot?
aw fuck it, I uploaded it
I wonder if translator-san will drop by today.
Here's Nagai referencing a hilarious shounen-ai manga
Well Getter hardly had any perverted moments.
It's a shame he didn't continue with this story, I really liked it. Would have been a cool anime.
iirc, she was sitting on a wooden horse and her cunt is sore. I can't read Japanese so I can only assume from the images.
As in the guy who wrote the list or guy who offerd to translate?
Either way, if your looking i think Kinshin was in the Nagai manga bacth on randomraws, i know all of mazinsaga is.
still about half of neo devilman left to translate
I don't think Salacia has been scanned, sadly. I don't see Kishin in the manga batches either.
God Mazinger, Z Mazinger, Garla, Harenchi Gakuen, Maou Dante 2002, Great Mazinger (Nagai version), and most of the others have RAWs
Also, Mazinsaga doesn't have an ending. Same with Garla and Mayonaka no Shinshi (I think).
Just as lewd as she was in the OVA.
A collection of mom:
There are two Mazinger manga series by Go Nagai. The original from Shounen Sunday and the one in Terebi Magazine. The original Mazinger chapters haven't been fully collected until a year or two ago. The version that was scanlated as some original Mazinger chapters but then suddenly switches to the Terebi Magazine chapters. Which is why there are some abrupt changes and dropped plot points.
That's on the TV continuity. Dr Hell didn't kill Kouji's grampa on Nagai's manga
The Nagai manga is the only version where Juuzo isn't killed by Dr Hell. Like Toei Mazinger became a huge hit and a cultural icon on Japan, Juuzo being killed by Dr Hell has turned into the default backstory
>Arguably, Mazinger killed Juuzo
What? You can't say that at all. There was an earthquake which caused a cave-in and that killed Juzo.
Only one series of Getter is translated and one anthology. One series of Mazinger is translated and a few short stories like Mazinkaiser/Relic of Terror. And what does Getter have to do with Mazinger in the first place.
They're together since it's a prequel.
After talking with Mœbius, Nagai felt it was time for a new Grendizer manga, so "Grendizer Giga" should appear by other authors on Champion RED.
It's like Amon, the battle between god and devils before humans exist?
I hope Satan don't cheat on Akira. If it's a prequel, Akira hasn't born yet but he's supposed to be Satan's first and only love. Deflowering Miki on Violence Jack doesn't count
I doubt Satan cared that much about Amon, considering he used Amon as a power-up for Akira, what pretty much mean to kill him. Being part of Akira's subconcious isn't that far from being dead
You can tell Nagai had something grand planned for Mazinsaga so it's too bad it'll probably never be finished. ;_;
Nope. Stopped on the 6 volume after introducing the Gamia sisters and mecha Psycho Jenny.
Japanese wiki probably has something on why it's unfinished: http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%83%9E%E3%82%B8%E3%83%B3%E3%83%BB%E3%82%B5%E3%83%BC%E3%82%AC
All the Jp wiki says is that it switched over to a monthly serial then went on hiatus.
Later in the article it mentions in that the 2012 printing of Mazinsaga there is an end of the book article that talks about some of the developments that could have happened but implies that it'll never be completed. Something like to that extent.
Oh, actually to add to that, it seems that Z Mazinger is the reason he put Mazinsaga on hold (either the first time or second time, I don't know which) because they were planning on Z Mazinger being a full blown remake, anime included, but plans for that fell through.
Go Nagai was probably all Mazinger'd out after doing both Mazinsaga and Z Mazinger only to have to leave both incomplete.
>it seems that Z Mazinger is the reason he put Mazinsaga on hold (either the first time or second time, I don't know which) because they were planning on Z Mazinger being a full blown remake, anime included, but plans for that fell through
WHY? If the producers were worried about shit sales, they just had to ignore the manga like the Devilman Lady did. It'd be so perfect, so much poetry
70s Mazinger Z
80s God Mazinger
90s Z Mazinger
I think kids started to lose interest on mecha during the late 90s. Seed was a huge hit but the audience cared more about the romance drama and husbando/waifu faggotry than the mecha action. Mecha became progresively more and more otaku and less mainstream
Z Mazinger is also unfinished?
>Z Mazinger is also unfinished?
Yeah, it ended when plans for the anime fell through.
Kouji and Sayaka beat back the Mycenaean armies as Hades is informed that an enemy is threatening their homeworld and that the army is to return immediately. Kouji and Sayaka celebrate as the hordes of the Mycenaen retreat and the series ends with "Z Mazinger: Part One END"
Why is it that you have to denounce how much you hate something everytime it's brought up? Here
Sounds like a classic Nagai ending.
I wonder if Kishin has an ending?
Well, the only thing the jp wiki says about it is
However, the conclusion that the author had in store for the battle with Olympus was never seen as the series ends at Part 1. While there were also plans to create an animation pilot film, these plans were also halted.
found these on Ebay
Here's a rumor about Z Mazinger
(2002.4.28????)?TOEI ANIMATION ???????????????????1999.11??6?59?????????????????????
I would love an anime of Great-hen, but if I was Go Nagai, I would never risk it.
Given the number of animated episodes/live action series Dynamic Pro releases every year, I assume the company doesn't make a lot of money from the sponsors or the toys. I bet Shin Mazinger was a huge project for them considering it was 26 episodes long.
Every year since 1998, Dynamic Pro would release at least some decent quality anime or live action stuff.
But for the first time since 2011, we've sort of experienced a drought.
2012 had a low budget Kekko Kamen movie.
2013 had Mazinger ZIP, a low budget flash comedy anime.
2014 saw the release of Robot Girls Z. This was only 3 episodes long, and I'm pretty sure it was all Toei's doing.
Instead of Great-hen, Go Nagai is better off concentrating on the Mazinger live action movie. It will provide a closure to the whole saga which can finally be put to rest.
Second, he should totally do an animated Devilman series as well. 12 episodes should be enough, to at least wash the bad taste of the 2004 movie off. Again, this will be Devilman's closure.
And finally, he needs to do a new Grendizer anime. It doesn't have to be big budgeted. It can just be a 40 minutes OVA with Duke Fleed taking a shit on his home planet. This will really provide closure to fans around the world. (Like Wasim and the likes. He went nuts now because Nagai wouldn't provide him this satisfaction)
And of course, Gekiman! IS the most definitive manga of his career. Go Nagai probably realizes that he doesn't have much time left, and has decided to record his life on paper.
Once he does all these, he'll be free to hang his boots whenever.
When he finally draws his last breath, he'll have people rebooting his works like RE:Cyborg 009 a decade later.
There are essentially two threads that will explode on /m/ once they happen.
1. Uncle Go dies for real.
2. Tomino dies for real.
And when those two actually happen, I bet your ass that you'll still be here (With your kids).
I don't want a shitty live-action film as a closure. The adventure must live on!
Also, I have no desire for a second season of Shin Mazinger. The ending of the original would lose the impact it had.
Or maybe this one is my favorite.
>What do writers have against Sayaka-chan
Sayaka is a woman and women can't do shit by themselves, female modeled mechas aren't the exception. Later it's just tradition. Ironic that the original creator who happen to be a well-known misoginistic realized times changed, even more ironic that he did it during his most misoginistic phase (late 90s, early 2000s).
I love uncle Go but his works aren't precisely female-friendly, except for Devilman and Grendizer for their influence on BL and Nagai's biggest contribution to Grendizer was to add Kouji as a regular character while the rest was made for Toei
It makes sense on Zero, considering it's made by the rape Namek guys. Uncle Go is a hardcore feminist compared to these guys
Also, Satan having tits is a big turn off for many modern fujoshis while they didn't have many options on the 70s. Hell! Keiko Takemiya had to fight with her editor just to include a page with 2 boys kissing
>his works aren't precisely female-friendly
His works aren't targeted to women. That however doesn't mean he hates women for fuck sake, especially with empowering females like Cutie Honey and Iron Virgin Jun.
And he spoke about the portrayal of Sayaka in the tv anime, and how his manga was different from that.
Sayaka is hot headed as fuck. Did you see the females before Mazinger?
Nagai is a feminist. He's just not the modern feminist type.
>That however doesn't mean he hates women for fuck sake
You don't have to hate women to be misogynist
Also while its cool Sayaka get riled up it isn't exactly empowering to see her mech get trash or slice in half every chapter. Also to see her constantly captured and striped
Admiring women for their beauty is not misogynistic. That's just the crap you hear from femnazis these days.
Cutie Honey gets stripped a lot, and it's sexy as fuck, but she can also fight, like other Go Nagai femmes. She's a heroine, and she's not being reduced to only her beauty.
>Also while its cool Sayaka get riled up it isn't exactly empowering
SHE'S A SIDE CHARACTER.
You know who else gets ditched every episode? Kappaeru from Enma-kun.
Kappa is a useless male sidekick. You hear that?
I mean this whole thing is fucking stupid.
You don't have to hate women to be misogynist?
Bullshit. That's the whole idea of a misogynist.
If Go Nagai hated women so much, explain how come he has so many heroine mangas?
And how come HE ACTUALLY MARRIED ONE?
Yeah, women get mistreated and raped in Violence Jack, but so do the men, and it's never EVER glorified.
See that really boils down the problem not in feminist but of Go's writing. Why? It wouldn't matter her sex but why does she have to be useless. You can say so she doesn't show up Mazinger Z the main mecha but thats just poor excuse of a terrible writer. The same problem exist for the Mazinger Army for example. They only in the finale only to die pathetically for shock value and it keeps happening in Mazinkaiser & ZERO.
Kappa is comedic character who not suppose to take seriously. He not a willingly brawler who out to save the world like typical shouen side characters.
>but why does she have to be useless.
Because she's Kouji's love interest for fuck sake. She has to be saved. It's for the plot, not because Go Nagai "hates'' women.
What the fuck do you think will happen if Princess Toadstool could actually defend herself from Bowser and didn't need saving?
There would be no fucking Mario Bros.
Don't give me that shit there is world difference between Sayaka & Peach role.
Peach is a passive character, I entirely get why she she a magnet for kidnaps. All she meant to be is a princess to jumpstart the Mario video games which is fine because they are not meant to be entirely engaging.
Sayaka however is a veteran Mecha piloting a robot said to have some toughest alloy. Yet everytime danger comes it goes through her like wet tissue. Then Mazinger Z comes in to save the day then this repeat all throughout the series. Now I ask how different would the show be if she was just a normal girl who is on a one&off romance with the Hero. None because in the end Mazinger Z just finish off the Mechanical Beasts like always if Aphrodite A is there or not. But its not like that so she is essentially wasted space and potential, so she is more than useless. Now if you want a character that can jobbed Boss is already the perfect job for it. His failures don't have to be taken seriously and already show how powerful the local MotW can do.
You guys are idiots.
Sayaka is the second best pilot in Mazinger Z, second only to Kouji who also happens to be in a vastly superior machine. She has taken down mechanical beasts and is more helpful than any of Kouji's other allies.
In the manga, Kouji and Sayaka are an openly flirtatious couple and get along quite well. Sayaka does get reduced to a captive that needs to be saved at times, but the same can be said of all of Kouji's friends and allies. Her TV portrayal is different in that she and Kouji do not always agree, but they do get over their differences and learn important lessons yada yada it's a Saturday morning cartoon show.
Go Nagai is probably one of the biggest pioneers of putting females in powerful roles in anime/manga. His works were very controversial and popular, and he's known for his capable female leads. Who tend to be lesbians and fight against perverted/twisted men. Hell, Devilman Lady explored the damage of rape trauma and Jun's distrust of men.
Many people are off put by the sex and violence in Go Nagai manga, but they completely miss the point and never actually take the time to read his works with an open mind. He doesn't advocate these things, rather he shows them for what they are. Go Nagai's works rely heavily on metaphorical imagery and characters/figures. Even lighthearted works like Mazinger Z is rife with it.
Basically, calling Go Nagai sexist is frankly laughable. It borders on idiotic and shows a complete ignorance of the author's works.
I remember this moment but I also remember she had to be saved by Koji again. This is the same chapter the Mazinger Army was killed. You can say they were overwhelmed and thus had no chance of surviving but if thats true why even include them in the first place. They can easily be just regular JSDF force trying to help Sayaka out and still have the same effect.
However she did manage to destroy Hell King Gordon sword (before Venus A was destroyed).
Do you have more examples?
>Don't give me that shit there is world difference between Sayaka & Peach role.
Even the minute differences between their roles would still not back up your claim of Go Nagai being a misogynist. Things are the way they are, MOST likely because Nagai didn't think it through the way you are. He just wanted a strong MC, and a damsel in distress the MC has to save. Do you really think Nagai thought about Sayaka being a veteran? Sayaka just trains Kouji in the beginning. That's about it. You don't even know for how long Sayaka has been piloting Aphrodite A to become a veteran.
If you think Nagai purposely made her weaker, so that he could be misogynist towards women, then I'm sorry but you are a retard, and you clearly don't understand Go Nagai and his works.
>calling Go Nagai sexist is frankly laughable.
This so fucking much.
It's the most ridiculous claim I heard about Go Nagai.
The other one being Go Nagai glorifies rape and violence because people get raped and violated in his manga.
You people over-analyze his works. Go Nagai is just an artist who's constantly horny. He draws smut because he gets off of it, not because of some misogynistic agenda. That's retarded. He really isn't that much different from hentai artists.
Kekko Kamen for example with her crotch attack is all about fulfilling one of his own fetishes.
What's so hard to understand about that?
My headcanon is that everyone died and the glorious Mycenaeans ruled again
>The guy who created some of the first competent women in manga is a misogynist
You're aware tits doesn't equal misogyny, right?
Violence Jack for example, you have boys being raped, women being raped, men being raped, and all being murdered. People seem to only focus on the women being treated the same as everyone else in the work. The fuck?
If your example is Cutey Honey then that's also bullshit.
Sayaka? It's a point that she's competent and stuck in a shitty robot. Kind of like every robot besides Mazinger.
You sound like that reviewer from ANN.
Why is boss useless? Why is the Mazinger Army useless? Because they aren't the fucking hero. The spotlight is on Kouji. You're supposed to admire Kouji.
Poor writing? More like they couldn't fucking stand a chance against an actual army of goddamn mechs without their leader.
Your entire post is an example of bad writing. They don't need to be incompetent show how powerful Mazinger Z or defenseless without him. Why can't you admit Go Nagai has flaws in the way he tell his stories
Your logical fallacy is that he has to write his stories a certain way when in fact, he doesn't. Mazinger Z is the only robot with super alloy z, which makes sense why it's the only one that can stand up to Mycenean tech. Otherwise, they wouldn't need Mazinger.
In story about a boy who is given a technologically advanced weapon, that would usually be the point.
