Kiyoshi Nagai (永 井 潔, Nagai Kiyoshi?), better known by his stage name, Gō Nagai (永 井 豪, Nagai Gō?), is a mangaka, screenwriter of science fiction, horror, fantasy and erotic themes, recognized as a great innovator of the Japanese manga genre born on September 6, 1945 in Wajima, Ishikawa.
The decision to become mangaka (word used in Japan to refer to the cartoonist) came to mind when his brother lent him the manga of Lost World, Osamu Tezuka (Creator of Astro Boy and Princess Knight) – A the 25 years, after a serious illness, he created Kuro no Shishi (黒 の 獅 士, The black lion).
In 1962, Go Nagai established Dynamic Productions, a company to develop manga and anime projects. The first titles of this new company were Getter Robo and Abashiri Ikka (‘The Abashiri family’).
In 1968, while Shueisha was preparing the release of his first manga publication, Shonen Jump, to compete with Kodansha’s Shonen Magazine, among others … Nagai was invited to be one of the first manga artists to publish in said magazine. Here he got his first long-running series that was a success.
This series was called Harenchi Gakuen (ハ レ ン チ 学園, The indecent school, 1968-1972, Shōnen Jump magazine) and here Nagai was the first to introduce eroticism in the modern manga, his work would go into controversy since Go Nagai would become the first mangaka who would introduce eroticism into children’s stories, attacking taboos about talking about sex openly. Violence and rude humor were also reproved by many corners of Japanese society. The series concluded dramatically: all the characters die during a massacre.
After Harenchi Gakuen, Nagai created the Mazinger Z series (マ ジ ン ガ ー Z, Majinga Z), which would later continue with the sequels Great Mazinger and UFO Robo Grendizer, in which he developed the concept of a giant robot (wick) piloted from a cabin. Later he would introduce the concept of the transformable robot with Groizer X and Getter Robo. These ideas were surprisingly productive in many later television programs, and the world recognition would come after the anime broadcast of the cartoon on December 3, 1972, on Fuji TV.
While Mazinger, he created one of his most popular series, Debiruman (デ ビ ル マ ン, Devilman or Devil Man), about an anti-hero who fights against impressive hordes of demons. Debiruman is still a cult series in Japan. Devilman is inspired by Mao Dante (demon lord dante) Go Nagai’s first manga about demons. Later he had his anime of 13 episodes.
Despite the criticism, Go Nagai continued to develop erotic sleeves like Kekko Kamen in 1974, a story that tells the adventures of a vigilante who fights crime with a red mask, scarf, cloak, gloves and boots, but nothing more.
The creative mind of Go Nagai did not have when to stop and create Cutie Honey and completely change the manga genre with Magical Girl (anime that narrates the adventures of girls with magical powers), adding a stronger personality to the female character, since he fought against injustice without the help of a male character and, of course, adding the corresponding touch of eroticism.
Nagai has worked with Shōtarō Ishinomori and Ken Ishikawa. He is currently producing more manga than ever. Many of his manga series have anime versions.
Nagai has overcome a lot in the aspect of erotic content in his sleeves, beginning to draw bondage scenes in his first-time sleeves (as in Cutey Honey and Kekko Kamen), getting to draw scenes of oral sex and sex scenes in general as in Hanappe Bazooka and Kamasutra (she has also done a lot of percussion in the fact of hermaphrodites and jokes of sexual or flatulent origin). It should be noted that the author has always been “self-censor” on the genital parts of both male and female characters.
After publishing works like Cutey Honey and Kekko Kamen (in this included topics such as sexual humiliation, violence and mutilation, nudes everywhere, ambiguous characters, etc.) many authors of that generation (mid-60s and 70s) They continued with this line of including eroticism in their sleeves, increasingly explicit, until reaching the present. Example can be Masakazu Katsura himself, who in interviews confesses that he chose the Shonen Jump to show his works since he considered it an exponent of eroticism.
Go Nagai is one of the most influential manga authors in the world and for fans of this genre he is at the height of Stan Lee or Jack Kirby of Marvel Comics. He currently has no rest and is serializing the manga Shin Mazinger Zero vs Ankoku Daishougun and preparing a new manga called Devilman Saga, which is scheduled for release on December 25 this year by Big Comic magazine.
