Gô NAGAI is considered one of the most important Japanese manga artists, and the pioneer of psychological horror and splatter (Devilman, Violence Jack), the “cute fighting girls” genre (Cutie Honey), and the giant robot genre, for which he is most famous worldwide (Mazinger Z, Grendizer). He got successful very quickly and became the most popular and influential mangaka of Japan by the late 60s.
In the late 70s, the animated versions of his characters started being broadcast worldwide: Grendizer became the only program in French TV history to hit a 100% record rating, the beginning of the French passion for manga and anime which Japan Expo keeps on celebrating every year.
