Timeless Legacy of "Golgo 13": Artist Saito Takao Drawing on Human Nature

Celebrated manga artist Saito Takao died aged 84 in September. His "Golgo 13" series runs to more than 200 volumes; a Guinness World Record. He established the "gekiga" style of realistic manga that appeals to adult readers. "Golgo 13" storylines featured forward-looking subjects, such as a nuclear plant accident and a deadly virus outbreak, long before they became reality. We take a look at what Saito wanted to express in his work as well as the secret that enables the series to keep going even after his death.
