Thoroughbred of Perverts in Heisei
We have finished Nippon Derby, a festival of Japanese horse racing, this year. Thoroughbreds are built for winning the race, beyond a lot of hybridization and curtailment. Thoroughbreds mean, as you know, a perfect kind born after a lot of betterment. Now you must have used the word outside the horse racing world.
“Crayon Shin-chan” is a Japanese manga written and illustrated by a late manga artist, Usui Yoshito, whose main character is Nohara Shin-nosuke. He is rightly a thoroughbred of perverts in Japanese manga fields.
Nohara Shin-nosuke is 5 years old and the Noharas live in Kasukabe city of Saitama prefecture. When his father and mother are making love together, Shin-nosuke jumps into the room saying “Let me join playing pro wrestlers.” He sees through countless adult principles with his unique childlike view. How great!
He also takes off his wear anywhere, but is so far away from infamous crimes because Shin-nosuke is just 5 years old. That looks like nothing but a crown. Awesome child is he!
Numberless pervert characters were there and gone in Showa era, you know, before Shin-nosuke was made. The bygone stars left their traces. At the end, in Heisei era, “Crayon Shin-chan” was built up as an ultimate pervert.
For example, Shin-nosuke’s high performance like being all nude in company is evidence of succession to “Gakideka” written and illustrated by Yamagami Tatsuhiko in Showa era. But Shin-nosuke is also a brand-new type of pervert characters.
“Crayon Shin-chan” has become TV game software, TV animation and animated movies until today. Over 20 countries, they say they have sold over 100,000,000 books about “Crayon Shin-chan.” No error that he is a thoroughbred.
Usui Yoshito was gone and “Crayon Shin-chan” stopped its evolution. But I believe somewhere a new pervert thoroughbred would be born again after analyzing and hybridizing “Crayon Shin-chan.”
