posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Legendary manga creator Go Nagai's 50 year career was honored with an exhibition that opened in Osaka and Tokyo last September. The exhibition is returning this year with new highlights for fans of Devilman, Cutie Honey, and Mazinger Z.
The exhibition will head to the Ueno no Mori Art Museum in Tokyo from September 14 to 29. The exhibits include over 600 pieces including hand-drawn drafts and color illustrations. Organizers are also putting one part of the exhibition directly in the hands of fans. The Nagai Go Anime Ikkiken Blu-ray will collect 30 fan-selected episodes from Nagai's anime library. The Mazinger Z Vs. Devilman film will be included as a bonus.
Experts picked 100 episodes from Go Nagai's body of work to create a poll. Voting is open until June 23 and the results will be announced in July. The Toei Video voting page includes episodes from Mazinger Z, Great Mazinger, UFO Robo Grendizer, Getter Robo, Getter Robo G, Kotetsu Zieg, Devilman, Cutie Honey, Dororon Enma-kun, and Majokko Tickle.
The Blu-ray will be released on September 11.
Go Nagai himself will appear at a signing events at the exhibition on September 14-22. The signing events will be open to just 100 people.
