About our introductory articles


Hello. I'm here talking about "Go! Happy Mania," the women's comic created by An-no Moyoko. It is the 2nd arc of "Happy Mania." An-no Moyoko firstly appeared as a female manga artist in 1989, had serialized "Happy Mania" from 1995 to 2001. It got so popular, went to the TV drama in 1998. The main character was Shigeta Kayoko, the Japanese woman in her 20's. She searched for true happiness, repeated doing it with numberless men. We are hard finding any chastity in her actions.

The story finished in 2001, with the scene she somehow put on her wedding dress. And next year 2002, An-no actually got married with An-no Hideaki, the chief director of Neon Genesis Evangelion. An-no and Shigeta almost together got into marriage life, it means. After 2002, she has constantly released her works like Hataraki Man and Sugar Sugar Rune. But (naturally) Shigeta didn't appear before us for a long time.

In 2017, breaking the long-time silence, Shigeta Kayoko appeared again. An-no released the one-issue manga describing a sequel to "Happy Mania." The manga name was "Go! Happy Mania." Shigeta was in 45 close to An-no at the time. People saw Shigeta again, anyway. And in 2019, An-no officially made a fresh start for the sequel, began to serialize "Go! Happy Mania" on the Monthly Feel Young. Now (2022 January) she's irregularly publishing it, we can find the two volumes at Japanese bookstores.

In the beginning of the sequel, we see Kayoko's husband say they should break up their marriage. Kayoko was surprised. She trusted his deep love to her, kept the marriage for 15 years. And no children for them. Oh, what will they do? It is supposed "Go! Happy Mania" suggests the question "how should usual woman live alone in her midlife?" Around her, it is hard to find any men regarding her as a woman for her age. Then she can pick up no men by screwing. First of all, no men desire to do it with her.

By the way, Go of the title means "after" in Japanese language. After being Happy Mania, Kayoko got into marriage life as mentioned above. After it broke up, what will she do? Why don't you try it if you have interest in the question "how should usual woman live alone in her midlife?"
