Shigeru Mizuki 1922-2015

War veteran aged 22, sole survivor of his platoon, amputee, brother of a war criminal.

Cinema projectionist, kamishibai artist, manga creator.

Scholar, field anthropologist, folklore historian.

Man with the heart of a child and the ability to make others see the magical and terrible truths of the world.

May he rest in the peace he never ceased to fight for.
