RELATED: Go Nagai Wonderland Museum in Ishikawa Reported Burned Down After Earthquake "I am shocked and heartbroken by the gap between the images of my hometown, Wajima, which have been reported daily, and the scenery that I remember in my mind," Nagai — who was born in Wajima City in 1945 — said in the statement. "I have learned that Wajima City and the Go Nagai Wonderland Museum were also affected by the earthquake, and I have been receiving warm words of support daily from people concerned about my situation. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all. I really appreciate it. "As for the museum, many of the exhibits were probably damaged. But I am still an active manga artist, so even if they were lost, I believe I can draw and create again as much as I want. So, the damage itself is not a big deal. Rather, right now, I am hoping to be of some help to those affected by the disaster in Wajima and other areas so that they can get their lives back to normal as soon as possible. We may not be able to think about the future just yet, but let's do our best to get through this!" Dynamic Production's official Twitter account also confirmed they have not yet obtained definitive information on the damage to the museum, adding, "We will let you know when we are informed of the situation, and we hope you will wait for that time."
