It has been 23 years since Shotaro Ishinomori’s flame went out. Yet 83 years since his birth, his creative works live on! Kamen Rider and Super Sentai are still going in Japan. Cyborg 009 has seen a recent anime release from Discotek. The Gorenger manga collection will be released by Seven Seas Entertainment April 20, 2021. That’s just a small part of what he left behind and yet it persists, entertaining and inspiring people all across the world!
Join me on January 25 as I #CelebrateIshinomori!
January 25 and the following days I will be releasing multiple pieces celebrating all the things I love about the works of Shotaro Ishinomori. I would love to see others contribute by doing something inspired by Ishinomori’s works. Art, podcasts, music, blogs, articles, whatever you want, whatever you got, bring it if you want to join in to celebrate the creative genius of a man from a small fishing village.
Tag your posts with #CelebrateIshinomori and #ShotaroIshinomori so others can follow along. Let’s make a show of it!
