Ladies & Gentlemen…

The wonder that is Go Nagai character design!

Spaghetti Jane from Shameless School Vol. 9

Shameless School is fucking insane. I can’t read a word of it, but Nagai’s strength as a cartoonist gets over what is happening fairly well. It’s a prototype for a vast swath of his career, possibly every non-robot series. Even Devilman and it’s apocalyptic ending gets its first run through in vol 5-6 when the PTA declare war on the school.

I’ll probably stick some sequences up from it soon, there’s a section during the war involving Spaghetti Jane’s predecessor (& husband/boyfriend??), Macaroni, that is a fantastic parody of Spaghetti Westerns (Django in particular).

And who else but Nagai would work in panty shots as schoolgirls are blown up by tank fire.
