Go Nagai Wonderland Museum Opens for Mazinger Z Creator

posted on by Egan Loo

The city of Wajima in the western Japanese prefecture of Ishikawa has opened a museum for its most famous citizen, manga creator Gō Nagai, on Saturday. Among Gō Nagai's numerous creations are Mazinger Z, Cutey Honey, Devilman, and Getter Robo. The city had bought an empty store and spent 123,000,000 yen (about US$1.3 million) to renovate it as the Gō Nagai Wonderland Museum. The museum currently has 114 pieces of original art and a 1/9-scale, 2-meter-tall (about 6.6 feet) statue of the Mazinger Z robot in its classic rocket-punch pose. The first 50 visitors received a commemorative opening day poster signed at the museum by Nagai himself.
