Machiko Hasegawa (長谷川町子)

Refer to Machiko Hasegawa, who is the first female Manga Artist.
Machiko Hasegawa (長谷川町子 Hasegawa Machiko, January 30, 1920 – May 27, 1992, in Taku, Saga Prefecture) was one of the first female Manga Artists.

She started her own comic strip, Sazae-san, in 1946. It reached national circulation via the Asahi Shimbun in 1949 and ran daily until Hasegawa decided to retire in February 1974. All of her comics were printed in Japan in digests of comic book form; by the mid-1990s, Hasegawa's estate had sold over 60 million copies in Japan alone.

(Sazae-san was borne when Machiko Hasegawa had been assigned to Fukunichi Shinbun, Japanese Local Media)

Her comic strip was turned into a dramatic radio series in 1955 and a weekly animated series in 1969, which is still running as of 2009.

Selected comics were translated into English, under the title The Wonderful World of Sazae-san.
She received People's Honor Award in 1992.

 

Sazae-san (サザエさん) is a Japanese comic strip created by Machiko Hasegawa.
Sazae-san series might be able to obtain in USA via Amazon or so.


SAZAE SAN (TV Anime)


Sazae-san was first published in Hasegawa's local paper, the Fukunichi Shimbun (フクニチ新聞), on April 22, 1946. When the Asahi Shimbun (朝日新聞) wished to have Hasegawa draw the comic strip for their paper, she moved to Tokyo in 1949 with the explanation that the main characters had moved from Kyūshū to Tokyo as well. The comic dealt with contemporary situations in Tokyo until Hasegawa retired and ended the comic on February 21, 1974. As one of Japan's longest running and oldest comic strips and animations, the series is known to nearly every Japanese person, young and old.
