Mizuki Productions Zack Davisson: Will we learn much about Japan from Showa or is this more of a personal journey in the life of Shigeru Mizuki? Showa is like a college course in both the history of Japan and Mizuki Shigeru. In some cases, more than you wanted to know. I got really emotional when I was deep into the translation.
You have to know both. Mizuki Shigeru used real events to tell fictional stories, but in Showa you get the unfiltered truth. I had to learn a lot of new Japanese — mainly Military lingo, and specialized political and philosophical terms.
Showa is far denser than any other comic I have ever read, from any country. My wife Miyuki was essential for that. And that fits in the speech bubbles. Whatever you write has to fit. When was Showa originally produced in Japan?
Well, Kitaro is actually older than that, although in a different form.
He was created, supposedly, by Ito Masami back in as a kamishibai series based on ancient ubume legends of a living child born to a dead mother. Mizuki started working on the series in as a kamishibai artist, before taking it into comics in He wrote it with a definite purpose in mind.
He was watching the children of the new Japan grow up in luxury and decadence, forgetting the price that was paid to get them there, the sacrifices people had made. Showa is an epic story. Is he still blazing away at the drawing board?
But he is still active. In he was awarded the Person of Cultural Merit, which is similar to being knighted. His work has already been translated into so many languages — Chinese, Korean, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese… pretty much everything but English. He is an internationally recognized genius in the fields of folklore and comic book art.
And yet the US, UK, and Canada — supposedly these great comic book cultures — are only now finding out who he is.Modern and Contemporary Japanese History,Urban Lower Classes,Taisho Democracy,Imperialism,Oral History.
