Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What's your favorite work from Go Nagai?
A: Devilman is easily my favorite.

Q: Do you know Go Nagai personally or know how I can contact him?
A: Sorry, I don't know him or how you can reach him. I'm just a regular fan like you.

Q: Do you know how I can get copies of some of these old shows and manga?
A: A lot of these shows have been compiled into big DVD boxed sets in Japan. Try searching a Japanese import site (like CDJapan). Just remember that you need a DVD player that can read Region 2 discs. For manga, you'll probably want to check out Kino Kuniya or Amazon Japan.

Q: Hey, I noticed that you had a DVD or CD that I'd like a copy of. Can you make one for me?
A: No. If it's still in print, I can help you find it to purchase. I don't make illegal copies for people.

Q: Is it Cutey Honey or Cutie Honey?
A: Whichever you prefer. I use the two interchangeably. I've seen both used in Japanese print and the covers for the manga and anime.

Q: Isn't it The Devil Lady and not Devilman Lady?
A: The Devil Lady is the name that ADV Films chose to use when they brought the series over. The japanese characters in the title of the manga and anime sound out "debiruman rady" or Devilman Lady. Use whichever you prefer.

Q: How did you get into Go Nagai's works?
Super Robot Wars F A: It all began with a Playstation game called Super Robot Wars F. It was a turn-based strategy game that features mecha from several generations of anime that included Aura Battler Dunbine, Mobile Suit Gundam, and Neon Genesis Evangelion. Most importantly, it had Mazinger Z.

It was hilarious to use a mecha that would use "Breast Fire!" to annihilate the enemy. While reading a FAQ for the game, I discovered that Mazinger Z Go Nagai was the creator and he created many of the other series featured in the game.

I became very interested in Go Nagai and his works and did more research about him for an article that I wrote for my anime club newsletter. We were showing Mazinger Z vs. Devilman. I was fortunate enough to have a couple issues of Protoculture Addicts (Issues 40 and 54) as references.
