Is Go Nagai crazy or just an entertaining hack?
I still don't know what to make of Ryou.
Misunderstood genius. Don't get why you said hack, though. He has influenced anime and manga greatly with his many original pioneering works.
I really like his art style but it feels kind of lazy to me. I thought the narrative in Devilman really jumped around all over the place and almost felt rushed at times. Maybe it's just because it's a product of its times and I don't quite get it yet. I won't deny his huge influence at all.
Explain what you mean by calling him a hack with such slander?
Depends on his work. Sometimes he actually puts effort into it and sometimes he doesn't.
Gore, edge (?), monster designs and such in manga? Huh, now that you think of it, it's more known as being famous than actually influential.
Yes, but its actual influence on it isn't as high as people think. Anno only mentions it so he can attempt to compare himself to his senpai Nagai.
Of course, but what things can you actually cite?
The demon designs and such are very Devilman. Multiple creatures just jam packed into one.
