American movies tend to have eroticism, gags and action as three critical elements of amusement. Surely, we could hardly deny these elements let most of watchers enjoy it.

Now, what manga author can turn the three elements to account in the field of Japanese manga at the maximum? It must be Nagai Go although some of his works include profundity, like Devilman, Violence Jack and so on.

No need to have the pragmatic theme. Purely want to enjoy eroticism, gags and action. If you said so, you'd better choose Kekko Kamen written by Nagai Go.


The stage is a boarding school in Nagano, called the Sparta Academy. They isolate all their students from families and society, for grinding away. And the teachers give some special leading to female students who get an average mark of less than ninety, for intensifying advancement rate. They actually assault the girls sexually, however.

Hearing only that setting, you would think it is kind of satirical because its outstanding main character still hides in that explanation.

A heroine suddenly appears in order to help the oppressed students. Her name is Kekko Kamen. She is a slender woman whose face is masked but whose body is all naked. It can't be! If the character were male, it is certain for everybody to regard him as a crazy pervert.

Concealing her true character, she keeps fighting with enemies one by one. The enemies come with interesting direction. For example, Nanairo Kamen is a old Japanese SFX hero. In Kekko Kamen, appears Nana-ero Kamen as an enemy. Nagai Go had studied under Ishinomori Shotaro whose major work example is Cyborg 009 and Saiho-bu 009 comes out in Kekko Kamen. By the way, saiho-bu means a sewing club in Japanese.


Great is her special move. A naked woman leaps to the air, spreads her legs openly and crashes to the face of her enemies. They had their eyes glued to her naked private parts and become unable to dodge the move that is so formidable in a lot of different ways.

Nagai Go said he felt eroticism from pictures by Tezuka Osamu. But also very fascinating is woman illustrated by Nagai Go. He must have utilized his touch particularly and created Kekko Kemen.

What you learn from the manga is nothing. It is just very interesting.
