Mizuno Hideko 水野英子

[born: 29 Oct 1939, Yamaguchi-prefecture, Shimonoseki; bloodtype: B]

Mizuno made her debut in 1956 with "Akakke Pony". She worked under Tezuka as a resident of the Tokiwasou apartment building together with Ishinomori Shoutarou and Akatsuka Fujio. Mizuno became one of the leading shoujo-mangaka of the 60's and early 70's. Many of her titles were inspired by Scandinavian mythology and western films. {DHI}

"A long saga of a rock and roll singer in the American counterculture, including sex, drugs, death and disillusionment... Fire! was sharply realistic, but at the same time true to its genre as it contained pages of poetry." {002}

This manga was the first shoujo manga to have a boy as the leading character.

From the perspective of today, this 1969-71 classic may seem unbelievably corny, but Mizuno's art is fantastic. Sure, it's outdated, but even looking at it today you can see how technically talented she was. There are certain panels and pages that should be used in textbooks for would-be manga artists. It should be in every serious shoujo manga fan's library. {018}
