When I was 5 years olddeadI became interested in my 3-year-old brotherI tried to push it down, but I was found by an adult in the neighborhood, and after being obsessed with my parents, my grandfather called "Neko" who lived with me at that timesister(Great aunt)Yaito (moxibustion)Was set[9].


Growing up in a relatively blessed environment, but parents are not the ones who can study at schoolOrdinary elementary schoolIt even delayed admission by a year.I admit myselfMy paceHe was an eccentric student who overslept in the morning for the first time, had breakfast slowly, and usually went to school from about the second hour.At that time, "collecting newspaper titles" was popular among children, but even if other children got tired of it, they were enthusiastic about it.fartWas able to be put out freely, and it was flatulent in the morning assembly cage and made other students laugh.[10]..In such a condition, the grades were not good and it was "total collapse" except for physical education and drawing.[11]Because he was one year older and had a big physique, he had a strong and cheerful personality.General kidReigned as[10]..Mizuki's motherEducational HistoryHe was enthusiastic about education because he was concerned about the situation, and his older brother and younger brother with excellent gradesOld junior high schoolGo on to higher education[12]Mizuki, who was just studying, vaguely wanted to take the old junior high school exam.[12], Mizuki's mother was immediately answered by the teacher as "impossible" in the career counseling[12]..I was worried about the future, but I didn't take the exam, which is also a preparatory school for secondary education.Higher elementary schoolAnd soon returned to a child who forgot his anxiety and played around[12]..Even in high school, the results of drawing were good, and an exhibition of pictures drawn in class was held at a public hall at the recommendation of the vice-principal of the elementary school and was published in the newspaper.[13]..He won the gold medal many times at the on-campus competition, and was loved by the former vice-principal who was also a judge of the Tottori Nika Exhibition, who gave him oil painting tools.[14].

Even after graduating from high school, he did not proceed to the old junior high school and decided to leave his hometown to go out into society and find a place to work.I moved to Kinki, relying on my father who worked for a life insurance company and was assigned to Kobe alone, and returned to Osaka, where he was born, with the introduction of his relatives.[15]..My mother, who feels sorry for Mizuki who leaves her hometown and goes to work alone, is worried about her second son, who is different from her brother and brother, and asks, "What will happen to you?" The difference is only widening. "[16]..However, Mizuki was almost calm and was looking forward to working in the city from the countryside.[16].


In Osaka, he was overwhelmed by the number of people coming and going with the buildings lined up in the city, and he thought that the light of the city at night was "like a festival".[16]..Tanimachi (currently Osaka City)Chuo-ku), I lived and worked at Tanabe Print Company, a lithograph printing company.[15]I couldn't keep up with my work because of my own pace, and I got fired in just two months.[17]..Next, I joined Komura Print Company in Terada-cho, but I couldn't remember the delivery route, and when I finally learned the way, I forgot to deliver the luggage while watching the handicrafts of the craftsmen in the downtown area. I was dismissed here as well.[18]..Then get sickjaundiceReturn to Tottori for medical treatment[19]..After returning home, the father, who thought that his son was not suitable for labor, decided to proceed to study his favorite paintings.Mizuki recalls that he jumped up to his father's words, "Stop looking for a job and study painting ..."[20].

Mizuki said that he searched various art schools for "places without exams or admission qualifications" in consideration of his temperament, which he is not good at studying.Eventually in OsakaUehonmachiSo, Kyoto City Arts and Crafts School (currentlyKyoto City University of ArtsI found a rare unexamined art school called Seika Art Academy, which was established by the painter Keiharu Matsumura who studied in) and entered the school.[21]..However, the academy was like a small private cram school, and the content of the lessons was close to a practical design class.[22]..Admirable画家He said that he felt that he was more skilled than the teacher who taught himself, who had been studying by himself with all his might.[22]..I stopped going to school because of my disappointment, and spent days killing time in the nearby forests and mountains.

At the age of 16, my father was transferred to Tamba Mt. Sasayama as a branch manager, and he and Tamba Mt. Sasayama moved to a rented house because it was judged that it would be uneconomical to let Mizuki live alone.Later, my mother also moved from Sakaiminato, and my brother and brother lived in a dormitory of an old junior high school, so they lived together.For a while, I continued to attend an art school in Osaka from Mt. Sasayama.[23].. At the age of 18, Mt. Sasayama YamanakaShrine"If you find an unscrupulous person or a mischievous person at a shrine, it suddenly falls from above and threatens you."Otoroshi』It is said that I have encountered something that seems to be[24].

1940(Showa15 years)newspaper deliveryWhile working at, take another school (Japan Mining School Mining Department), and pass this time.However, as usual, I was not interested in specialized subjects at all, my grades were poor, and I was often absent, so I was expelled from school in half a year.[17]..Soon after my own pace, newspaper delivery became dismissed, and in OsakaNakanoshima Western Painting InstituteI went to.Mizuki discusses the future with his parents, and from his parentsNihon UniversityAttached old system Osaka night junior high school (currentlyOsaka Gakuen Osaka High School), And enrolled in the same school[17]..In the daytime, I work to deliver a gully newspaper called "China Tsushin", and on holidaysTakarazuka Family Land OfZooAnd Insectarium,Takarazuka RevueI used to go to[29]..Meanwhile, the Pacific War begins.

Mizuki, who thought that he would definitely die if he went out, wrote philosophical books and Buddhist books.BibleI read and caught[32]..The one I liked the mostGermanyPoetJohann Eckermann"ゲ ー テIn "Dialogue with", I brought this to the battlefield.

At the age of 21, finallyWarrantArrived[30]Permanent AddressTottori40rd Infantry RegimentIt was decided to join the absence team[30]..The night junior high school that I was attending was automatically expelled (described later).Even in the military life, the self-paced swing remains the same, and from that bold attitude, in the bathExecutiveI was mistaken for it and had an old soldier shed my back.[33].

After finishing the first year soldier education, the superiors judged that no matter what they did, their actions were slow and they had no use.SpeakerHowever, as a punishment for not being able to play well, he volunteered to relocate himself due to the pain of having to run many laps in a large yard (the garden of the regimental dormitory) under the scorching sun every day.[34].

At first, I wasn't able to get in touch with him (the personnel affairs also gently advised the army to "please be patient," in the sense of soothing), but it was the third time because he continued to offer relocation. ToSergeantAsked, "Is it better to go north or south?"[34]..Thinking of that question as about domestic placement, he answered, "I hate the cold, so I'm in the south."[35],KyusyuI thought that I would be assigned to a regiment in the southern part of the country, but in the southNew Britain IslandRabaulThe destination is decided.Mizuki also knows the tragedy of the Southern Front, and is sent to the fierce battlefield and receives a deep shock that makes it pitch black in front of him.[35]Immediately after the transfer order, he was allowed to stay out for two nights and three days and returned to Sakaiminato where his parents were returning, but they said they couldn't talk to each other.[35].

New Britain IslandThe experience of the war in Japan had a great influence on the later works drawn by Mizuki.Mizuki, who was not familiar with the military life, also belonged to the 2nd companyCompany commanderKodama KiyoshiLieutenant(From a lumber shop in his late 30sReserve roleOfficers) often asked me to buy that arm and draw a portrait.[39]..Kodama was an exceptional person who was treated kindly as an individual among the superiors who only thought about making a blame for Mizuki every time.Similarly, Ichiro Miya, a non-commissioned officerSergeantAnd Katsumi SunaharaMilitary doctorCaptain[Note 2]They were also the few superiors who kindly treated Mizuki, and they continued to interact with each other even after Mizuki returned to work after the war and reunited.

Eventually Mizuki is assigned to Bayen as one of the soldiers of the suicide squad.I was ordered to take the last duty of the night shift due to the punishment that I was dozing while being instructed by my superior on the go, and even though I watched while sleeping, I was fascinated by the natural scenery and the scheduled time to wake up my superiors 5 After about a minute, from the enemy plane at that timeMachine gun sweepDone[Note 3], The sleeping superiors other than Mizuki were instantly wiped out.Mizuki hurriedly jumped into the sea and escaped, but was discovered by an aboriginal guerrilla andbayonetI escaped from the jungle for a few days with a loincloth and miraculously survived while managing the pursuit of the search team to the Japanese soldiers.[40]..When he returned to the unit after a lifetime of nine deaths, his friends were pleased, but his superiors blamed him for throwing away his weapons and escaping, and he was asked, "Why did you escape without dying?" I'll do it. "[41]..Mizuki, who has managed to behave cheerfully on the battlefield until now, has been blocked by this matter, and since thenNihilismI came to think like[42].

Such gruesome days continue,malariaOnset, he fell into a state of confusion due to high fever, wandered around the jungle, and almost died.[42].

The bombing of an enemy plane caused a lot of bleeding and serious injuries to the left arm, as if to revenge.Blood TypeFrom my superiors and colleagues because I had forgottentransfusionTreatment is also impossible,HemostasisIs done but on the left armLivor mortisAs a life-prolonging measureMilitary doctorHe was forced into a state of desperate half-death and half-life, such as undergoing a left arm amputation without anesthesia (Mizuki himself was unconscious and had no memory of feeling a certain amount of pain).[43].

Some time later, in early 1945, he was sent backwards with other wounded and sick soldiers.There were rumors among the injured and sick soldiers that "the useless soldiers would be thrown away somewhere", and Mizuki was worried, but he arrived at a field hospital set up in Namare. Beside the treatment, I was driven to work in the field[44].

When the fear of death is alleviated in a safer land than the front line, it is an indigenous people of the island.(English editionI could afford to interact with.

He received hospitality from the Tolai people who liked Mizuki, who was not as intimidating as other soldiers, and while Mizuki also handed out the distributed cigarettes as a thank-you, he hit it off and was eventually accepted as a member of the village.

He went to the Tolai village with a reason, knowing that he had violated military regulations, and the Tolai people came to visit him with food when Mizuki fell again due to malaria.

The captain of the superior who was cursing himself every time he was slammed, saying, "He's crazy," but Katsumi Sunahara mentioned earlier.CaptainGave me[45].

On August 8, the commander said, "Potsdam DeclarationReceive instructions on "acceptance".Neither Mizuki nor the other soldiers could understand what it meant, and whispered "Did you win the war?", But soon it turned out that it was "I lost the war."[45]..Although disappointing voices spread in the army, Mizuki thought "survived!" And was impressed that he did not die on the battlefield.[46].

While being imprisoned in the Allied POW camp at Cape Kazel and waiting for his turn to repatriate, he was invited to live with him because he would separate the farmland from the Tolai.[47], I also seriously considered leaving the field and living permanently[48]..However, Sunahara advised him that it wouldn't be too late to decide after meeting his family, and decided to return to Japan.However, Sunahara also recalls that "I don't remember saying that."

Art school days

Mizuki, who was demobilized for the first time in four years, is the National Sagamihara Hospital (formerly Kanagawa Temporary Third Army Hospital, nowNational Hospital Organization Sagamihara Hospital), And waits for the turn of full-scale surgery on one arm, which was a first aid measure.[49]..Immediately after the end of the war, there was a shortage of doctors and supplies, so the turn did not come immediately, so I got permission from the doctors to return to Sakaiminato, my hometown, and spent days returning home and taking care of myself.My parents didn't know that Mizuki had lost one arm, so after learning the facts, my mother did household chores without using one arm, and my father investigated the work that he could do without one arm.Lighthouse keeperHe said he was saddened by his second son's misfortune, squeezing his wisdom.However, Mizuki himself had the joy of surviving and the hope that he might be able to continue painting, and he said that he was able to spend a refreshing time looking at the scenery of his hometown that had been burned into his eyes before the expedition.[50]..The following year, I finally received a notification from the hospital that it was my turn to treat, returned to Tokyo and waited at Sagamihara Hospital, and after a while the re-operation was completed successfully (it was quite painful due to lack of anesthesia). Then, Mizuki recalled later that he was well after about 10 days after the operation).

He earned his living expenses while he was in the hospital by painting at a dyeing factory directly managed by the hospital, but he earned only about the tears of a sparrow.Before and after the surgery, I was planning to earn a living by buying dark rice with other patients and earning a fortune in the dark shop family business in earnest.TohokuI went to buy food, but I failed and said, "It's hard to be a professional on any road."[51]..After that, he was invited by a hospital friend to join a disabled veteran group that was thinking about various businesses under the slogan "Bright future of disabled veterans" called "Shinseikai", and demobilized soldiers stayed in abandoned buildings and raised funds. participated in.The stay in the abandoned building failed due to opposition from the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, but the fund-raising activity was successful.However, due to the crappy internal conflict of the upper management, the members left one after another, and Mizuki alsoDistribution systemIs a government permit systemFish shopI changed my job because I applied for the qualification of[51]..Life after demobilization has become temporarily stable in the form of delivering fish to households that have contracted in advance.Former officer when starting this fish shopOgisu RippeiHe is also encouraged by the scolding that "there is only an assault".

At the age of 26, Musashino Art University (currently)Musashino Art University) Knows that they are looking for students.In order to get a graduation certificate from the old junior high school or the new high school as a condition for admission, Mizuki visited the night school he attended before the army convened for the first time in a few years. Although the graduation qualification was rejected from the case of "treatment"[51]Unlike during the war, it was being democratized, so a certificate of enrollment was issued instead.Thanks to that, Mizuki entered Musashino Art University in 1948 under special conditions, which were few at that time.Immediately after the defeat, school uniforms were old and the skills and age groups were not uniform, but Mizuki, who likes to draw, learned enthusiastically and earnestly with other students.

New work to earn tuition in addition to living expensesCycle rickshaw businessIn order to start, the so-called "Mocchan (real name is unknown)", who was an acquaintance from the time of joining the same disabled veteran group and was a fish seller, changed to "Motchan (real name is unknown)".Fish shopIt was also a convenient time to offer, "I want to open the business independently, so if you like, I want you to transfer all the rights for XNUMX yen." Sell ​​and buy four cycle rickshaws with it.Start a detailed business of renting out for XNUMX yen a day.At the same time, in cooperation with his younger brother who came to Tokyo, U.S. military supplies were diverted, and at that time it was semi-illegal but was tolerated by the government.Black marketI continued to do business[52].

Although I was devoted to my studies and work, the black market was poor because I was an amateur, and the black market was poor. It was closed.

While the academics are keenly aware of the economic rigor of eating with pictures, the vice chairman of the "Shinseikai" who visited with the aim of rejuvenationTokaidoEven though I went on a fund-raising pilgrimage, I only collected a lot of money and switched to the goal of earning only the return travel expenses.KobeWhen I arrived at, I was about to become a crawling body[53].

After all, the art school dropped out a few years later.[54]..This was Mizuki's last attempt at school, and he recalls, "I went to various schools, but in the end I graduated only from high school."

Picture-story show era

I arrived at the previous fund-raising tripKobe CityThe owner of the cheap hotel in Japan asked me to buy this building as an apartment.There was a mortgage, but it was a cheap price, so I borrowed money from my father to buy the money I had saved in my previous business such as the cycle rickshaw business.This apartmentKobe CityHyogo WardBecause I was in Mizukidori, "MizukisoI named it and started a big family business.I didn't know what to do, so I asked a real estate agent to post an advertisement for recruitment, but only the same strangers as Mizuki moved in, and rent income was not progressing.A young man who was a disciple of a picture-story show writer moved into the apartment at the age of 29 when the big family business did not get off to a good start and searched for a side business.Because of the enthusiasm for painting that I gave up once, the picture-story show that the young man introduced me toLenderI brought a handmade picture-story show to Japan and went around.According to Mizuki, the evaluation was not good, probably because the content was "gaijuts-like", but he was acting as a coordinator for the performers at a lender called Hayashi Gagakusha.Benshi OfKatsumaru SuzukiLoved Mizuki's work and was hired as a picture-story show writer for the company.[55]..I got a job related to painting that I had dreamed of, but the picture-story show business was a micro-enterprise, and the payment of the price tended to be delayed.[56]..After a while, when Suzuki established his own lender "Hanshin Tigers" independently from Hayashi Paintings, Mizuki was also pulled out and became an exclusive writer.Suzuki doesn't remember Mizuki's real name (Shigeru Mizuki) and mistakenly calls him "Mr. Mizuki".Mizuki ShigeruWas used as a pen name[56]..A popular picture-story show writer I met through Suzuki's introductionKoji KojiThe days of drawing picture-story shows continued while also serving as an assistant.

In 1953, he got stuck in apartment management and withdrew from the large family business, sold Mizukiso and settled his debt.Immediately afterNishinomiyaMoved to[57].BC class war criminalSugamo PrisonTodetentionMy older brother, Sohei, was released, so I live with my family.[57]..As a full-time writer of picture-story shows, he devoted himself to making works, little by little.Know-howGrab "Karate"Kitaro""Kawado SanpeiI made works that will lead to success in later years[58].. Howevertv set,Rental book cartoonPushed by other entertainment such as, the picture-story show industry rapidly declined.After giving up on picture-story shows and deciding to become a cartoonist, he moved to Tokyo in 1957.Book rentalI brought it to the publisher of.Also away from picture-story showsKoji KojiThere is also a recommendation ofRabbit ShoboReceived an order from a small publisher called "Red Phone" to complete a manga left by another writer.[58].

After successfully completing this work, in 1958, as a formal debut work, "Rocket man, And became a book rental manga artist at the age of 35.[58].

Book rental era

Mizuki in the early days of book rental was mainlyWar comicsAnd gag manga, etc., such as "Jump out Pyonsuke" and "Battlefield Oath"Rabbit ShoboPublished by.OtherHorror cartoon,Science fiction cartoon,Gag cartoon,Girl cartoon,Historical dramaVarious genres such as are drawn with various touches.Since writers tended to be reluctant to publish works from other publishers, "In addition to Shigeru Mizuki,"Muramototsu""Shinichiro HigashiI also used multiple pen names properly.For rental comics, a reward of about 120 to 2 yen is to be paid by the publisher for each work of about 5000 pages, and the starting salary of the national government employee at that time was less than 3 and one picture-story show was 1. It was an exceptionally high salary from the viewpoint that it was 1 yen from yen[59]..However, it was a contract condition when the work was adopted and mass-produced every month.When Mizuki was unfamiliar with late writing, he rarely finished his work in a month, and if it was not judged that it would sell even if it was completed, the publisher would buy it, or even if it was bought, "the first time" As a "wait-and-see", only the reward reduced to less than 2 yen was paid.Not only that, it was a harsh industry where unpopular rumors circulated to other publishers and they were locked out if they didn't sell for the first time.Many book rental publishers are also micro-enterprise companies, and even if delivery is decided, picture-story showsLenderSimilarly, payments were often delayed.[60]..Even if I worked hard, my life did not become easier, and I continued to be delinquent in rent and go to pawn shops.As the work was not evaluated and the unfavorable life continued, the dark and gruesome style became stronger, and the publisher shunned him as "the style was dark", and he fell into a vicious circle in which his life became more difficult.At one point, he said, "I can't sell under the name of Shigeru Mizuki."Hiroshi Hotta""Bamboo OsamuI also experienced the humiliation of changing the author's name without permission.

At the strong recommendation of my parents who are already worried about Mizuki, who is almost 40 years oldShimane Nogi-gunOtsuka Village (currentlyShimane Yasugi City) FromNiezu IizukaMatchmakingAnd got married immediately.Standing in between was Nunoe's mother's younger brother, whose uncle's wife's parents' home was the Takera family.Far edgewas[61]..Mizuki, who thought that it was the first and last opportunity to get married, pretended to be a sophisticated urban worker with a middle-aged population, saying, "I earn twice as much as an ordinary office worker." It is said that it has been repeated.With an exceptional speed marriage of only 5 days from matchmaking to wedding[62], The ceremony hallYonagoNadamachi Goto's mansion was used[63].HoneymoonI returned to Tokyo in a hurry without even having the time to spare, and resumed work production.

At that time, Mizuki's war comics were the best-selling manga.[64],Rabbit ShoboIn "Shonen Senki", a magazine for rental booksShigeru Mizuki Strategy SeriesEtc. are serialized.We also undertake the editorial role of magazines.Shigeru Komatsuzaki,Saburo SakaiI am also interacting with them.However, the manuscript fee is reluctant to pay, and the book rental manga industry is declining following the picture-story show industry, making life more difficult.I came to my house because of my povertyTax officerI was wondered, "Isn't there a reason why my income is so low?", But Mizuki, who was angry as he said, pointed at a bunch of pawnbrokers and turned back the tax officer, saying, "Can Kisama and others understand our life?" It was.When his eldest daughter Naoko (later president of Mizuki Pro) was born the year after her marriage, she seriously considered quitting as a manga artist.Under such circumstances, I came up with the idea of ​​using "Kitaro," which I once drew when I was a picture-story show writer.

1960, From Rabbit ShoboGraveyard KitaroThe first work, "Ghost Family," was published in the rental magazine "Yokiden."It was finished as a gloomy monster similar to the picture-story show era, which is different from Kitaro in later years, but at first it did not sell at all and "Youkiden" was also discontinued in the second issue.However, after the discontinuation, some readers sent a letter requesting the resumption of the serialization, and Rabbit Shobo, who was on the verge of bankruptcy, continued to publish the "Graveyard Kitaro" series with the last hope.[65]..This became a popular work, and when Shigeru Mizuki gradually became known, the name "Kitarou" became known.In later years, Mizuki said, "Whenever I get into trouble, I always appear and save me.KitaroIt was.

From Rabbit Shobo who did not pay the manuscript fee for "Graveyard Kitaro" because his name sold and he became a little bullish.SanyoshaTransferred to and published "Kitarou Night Story"[67].. "Kitarou Night Story" also gained popularity, but Sanyosha'sShoichi NagaiThe president was hospitalized for tuberculosis and the management was confused, so it was discontinued, and the fifth volume "Kame Otoko no Maki" that had already been delivered became a phantom work that the manuscript itself was missing. After the discontinuation of "Kitarou Night Story", it was reconciled with Rabbit Shobo and it was a work of the picture-story show era with Kitaro.Kawado SanpeiWas made into a manga, but in 1962, Rabbit Shobo went bankrupt.After thatSato ProAnd "DevilWas publishedTokoshaHowever, "Akuma-kun" wasn't as popular as I expected, and all five volumes were scheduled to be discontinued in three volumes.[68]..The rental version of "Akuma-kun" is full of radical social satire resulting from financial poverty, and Mizuki's own ideological depiction of "defeating the wrong world and causing a revolution" was made by Mizuki himself at that time. It originated from the sadness and resentment of "a life in which poverty continues even if you work hard"[69]..In this way, the prototype of the youkai manga that Mizuki is good at was formed from the picture-story show to the book rental manga era.

It is said that he saved many youkai that had been lost in the masses.[101], Many people describe Mizuki as a successor to youkai culture.[102]..On the other hand, a youkai of unknown source, whose possibility of creation has been pointed out (JubokkoEtc.) are also drawn[103].

According to Mizuki's book "Neboke Seimei" <new edition>, page 12, "I haven't really investigated my ancestors, but the surname Takera has changed a little, and it sometimes appears in old records. According to the book "Izumo Festival" (Kodansha) that I recently read, there is a village called Takerago in Dogo (the island on the north side of the islands) in the Oki Islands, and it has been here for a long time, once every two years. It seems that the villagers gathered together to hold a festival called "Mura Festival". Oki and Sakai Port are next to each other across the sea, so maybe from around Takera Township, those who couldn't stand hunger came to Sakai Port in search of food. I guess it was my distant ancestor. "
Sengoku periodTakaoka Castle on YumigahamacityThere is a gate called Takera Neighbor SaemonAustralianMizuki thinks that this clan has record-breaking roots.[146].
The area around Sakaiminato at that timeMr. MouriAmakoIt was a place of power struggle, but when Amago's Noto Mamoru Kamei was deceived by the Mori clan, it was reported by his father that it was Takera Neighbor Saemon who guided him.[147].

According to Mizuki's book "Neboke Seimei <New Edition>", page 14, "SakaiminatoTakenouchiThere is a place called Takaoka Castle Toe, and there are three old pine trees. According to "Hoki", this is the trace of Mr. Takera's Tate.According to the theory of Yonago's local historian, the area around the graveyard of my house was where Takerakan was.I don't know which one is true, but it seems likely that there was a clan called Mr. Takera around here long ago, and that it was connected to me. ".

"[154].

Sakai TownI returned to work at a bank this time, but at night I rented a playhouse in the neighborhood and screened a movie, and the bank clerk did not know whether it was the main business or the movie theater.[160].
At one point, a bank robber was rampant, and Ryoichi, who was on duty, was persistent until dawn, but he endured fear and abandoned his duty and went home.[159]..For this reason, he was dismissed from the bank, but he said he was completely okay because he believed in the strange principle of "somehow principle".In addition, although "Bank robbery" is mentioned in "Neboke Seimei <New Edition>", "Mizuki Sun's Theory of Happiness" -Recollection of youkai cartoonist-] Is written as "Jailbreak prisoner".

According to his wife, during the war, even though he was practicing bucket relay in his neighborhood, he didn't participate because he knew it was a losing battle but it was useless.[72]..Also, when Mizuki was a book rental manga artist in Tokyo, he was very worried and recommended, "If the manga is not good, be a lighthouse keeper."He also often sent long letters of concern.If he didn't get a reply, he was even more worried and received a long letter, so Mizuki wrote a reply saying "I'm fine" as soon as the letter came from his mother.Also, so that my mother does not know that I am "poor"Military benefitsWas sent to his parents' house.Also, after Mizuki succeeded as a cartoonist and summoned his parents, he often talked about the story of the manga and became "Kitaro".ShisaIt is said that the reason why it came to appear was because of the strong recommendation of the mother.
