Guro Manga Artist Shintaro Kago

Shintaro Kago’s work has found its way into adult manga magazines, movies and games. He deals with extreme sex, scatology and body modification. For a man not yet 50 years old he has an impressively long list of finished work (though not as impressively long as the penises on some of his characters – nothing could be).

Kago has held a personal movie convention, Shit Film Festival, for which he designed a poster that appears to show a young girl with her pants around her ankles sitting on a lavatory and winking at the viewer. However, a closer look reveals that the “lavatory” is in fact the same girl’s head with a hole cut in the top of it.

This reflects another poster with five people (as far as can be told, one adult male, two young girls and two young boys) each reading a book or manga comic with great attention. The top of the head has been cut away from each of the five people and the brain is sticking out of the top on the end of a long stalk or stem.

These items can be seen on Shintaro Kago’s Japanese website (just look for the artist’s name) which has a number of other items including a picture of five villains including Hitler and Stalin.

To go with the Shit Phone Festival, in 2013 Kago showed his work at the Shintaro KagoUnsanitary Hong Kong Exhibition.

Kago works that guru game enthusiasts may find appropriate to their interests include:

  • Ruggedness Nymphomania
  • Notebook of Murder and Killing – The 13 Cruel Sufferings of the Great Edo
  • Correct Perverted Sexual Desires
  • Notebook of Murder and Killing
  • Doodlebug vs Girl in Pieces
  • Black Theatre: Granny’s Dead Body is Stinky!

His work is well suited to adaptation for interactive games because as an author he likes breaking down the fourth wall and speaking direct to the reader.
