>>121847875 >magical girl genre Not sure about it. After Cutie Honey, magical girls were still slice-of-life with some magic. Sailor Moon switched the genre to fighting evil on skimpy suits and Takeuchi didn't seem especially fond of uncle Go.
>>121847875 What about his contribution to BL? Kawoshin wouldn't exist without these guys, or at least it'd be very diferent. Aparently Grendizer was a big influence on BL back in the 70s and uncle Go's main contribution was to include Kouji on every episode, what make him the "heroine" de facto.
>>121848036 Whether or not people want them doesn't matter; the point is he played a huge role in shaping the industry into the way it is today & barely gets recognition for it.
>>121848047 Sailor Moon might've revolutionized it, but Cutie Honey started it. Also, it's blatantly obvious Sailor Moon was influenced by it as well based on the visual aesthetics, regardless of what the author says.
>>121848213 As much credit as I give to Sailor Moon for mahou shoujo, I have to admit Cutie Honey went that direction LONG before, but for whatever reason those elements didn't stick with the genre till Takeuchi.
Part of that might have to do with Honey being an android with Fixed Air Elements system or whatever which was more Sci-Fi than magic and she was a solo heroin rather than a group sentai.
You cannot argue the female naked transformation into a specific evil-fighting alter-ego wasn't Nagai's pioneering.
>>121848322 The current state of the industry was caused by the Japanese recession. All the problems with modern anime are related to the economy. Japan see its economy not as a tool for having a better life but as the main reason to feel proud of being Japanese. The entire nation lost its shit with the bubble burst
>>121849178 To be fair I think this filled SM time-slot after the last season aired, it was one of the many clones that tried to reproducer the magical girl sentai genre unsuccessful until PreCure started.
What a sad world we live in where Japanese people equate all magical girls with Pretty Cure schema.
>>121848831 Sailor Moon's birth is a little complicated. Originally, Takeuchi's editor had the idea of the sailor suit because he had a huge sailor fetish and that's how Sailor V born. Then another meddling happened when someone had the idea of making a heroine team. Takeuchi was already a sentaifag so she wanted to do it with more sci-fi and violence but the editor didn't allow it, so Sailor Moon was born. Then Junichi Satou was put in charge of the 90s anime and he bring a weird-looking young man called Kunihiko Ikuhara and both did their own thing with little relation with the manga.
>>121847875 >Pioneer. This. A lot of his works are straigh up classics of their respective genres.
That said, i don't really like the endless amount of remakes, reboots, sequels, crossovers and parallel series he's done. There are like 5 to 10 manga series about any given major SuperRobot each, 5 or so of Devilman and so on.
>>121849484 I like some of the retellings. I know Devilman get very controversial after the original manga but I love all the universe, even Akira and Ryo's excellent adventures aka Shin Devilman. Some are better than others but they're enjoyable. Maybe it's because I really like these characters Miki not so much
Neo Devilman was made decades after the original Devilman but I almost cry reading it

>Takeuchi's editor had the idea of the sailor suit because he had a huge sailor fetish and that's how Sailor V born.
Osa-P is a gentlemen and also thats not true, or at least thats not the official story. Takeuchi has said many times that she indeed wanted a female sentai team, but she chose Sailor fuku because she wanted the heroines to be a symbol of universal empowerment to Japanese girls. The sailor suit was perfect for this because every Jap girl has to wear it so it had instant relate-ability. The fan-service aspect of it was just an added bonus.
>>121849359 Well, pretty much all art is a mish-mash derivative of an earlier piece. Rather than focus on similarities to earlier works, its better comment on what was new.
>>121849359 Nagai loves parodies. Kekko Kamen born as a parody of Gekko Kamen, even her theme song is a clear rip-off because Nagai thought it sound funny. The thing is that Gekko Kamen was filmed on black-and-white and his battle suit was white so he looked naked.
I seriously doubt Takeuchi even know who Kekko Kamen is but I find hilarious that her head kinda looks like Usagi's odanko.
