Biopic Miniseries on Shigeru Mizuki

Posted by on March 2nd, 2010 at 6:44 PM

Ge Ge Ge no Nyobo (The Wife of Ge Ge Ge) is a biography based on a memoir written by Mizuki’s wife, Fumie Iida. She’s Ge Ge Ge’s wife because “Ge Ge Ge Kitaro” is Mizuki’s most famous manga/anime creation. So, now NHK is running a mini-series biopic based on this memoir.

Strange to see attractive young actors portraying manga artists. Don’t ask me why. It just, seems… wrong. NHK (The Japanese PBS) will probably do right by the story, but the ads for this thing look pretty saccharine, and Mizuki’s life was anything but.

[Editorial note: Apparently the biopic hasn’t started airing yet (starts 3/29/10). Not too late to get your buddies in Japan to record it!]
