The memorial museum for Go Nagai, the manga artist who created Mazinger Z , Devilman , Cutie Honey and other popular works, opened in Wajima City, Ishikawa Prefecture in 2009. Go Nagai was born in Wajima City in 1945. The statement reads, "We have received concerns about the Go Nagai Wonderland Museum in Wajima City, Ishikawa Prefecture, and Go Nagai. In light of the situation in Wajima City, we consider the safety of local residents and the measures being taken there our top priority and have refrained from actively contacting Wajima City to confirm the status of the museum. We will let you know as soon as we know more about the situation, so we hope you will understand and wait quietly. "Go Nagai is in Tokyo, and he is deeply concerned about the situation in Wajima and other disaster-stricken areas that he has been hearing about in news reports and other media." Meanwhile, the official website for Hokkoku Shimbun, a local newspaper in Ishikawa Prefecture, reported on January 2 that the museum burned down due to the fire. Additionally, Asahi Shimbun's photo article about the earthquake shows a picture of the burned-down museum. Damage to the museum's interior, which housed Nagai's original manga art and other materials, is still unknown. A 7.6 magnitude earthquake struck the Noto Peninsula of Ishikawa Prefecture on January 1 in Japan. The earthquake caused a large fire in Kawai-cho, located in the center of Wajima City, Ishikawa, around "Asaichi Street," a well-known tourist attraction where the museum was located. As of January 2, 62 people are confirmed dead in Ishikawa Prefecture in relation to the earthquake, according to the NHK . We want to express our sincerest condolences to those affected by the disaster. Sources: Dynamic Production official Twitter , Hokkoku Shimbun , Asahi Shimbun
