Ig Nobel Prize winner Dr. Nakamats writes, on his blog:
I’m looking for the most innovative Manga cartoonist in the world to make my own life story by manga.
This is from The Committee of Sir Making Dr. NakaMats Manga.
On April 18, 2013, Dr. NakaMats announced to make his own Manga, cartoon, about his 80 years of journey of 3,048 inventions, since age 5.
Many people in the world today know about his inventions but not much about his hidden stories and the values. There are many episodes thru the experience during the world war II, lectures based upon physics, chemistry, and medical science. This manga will be very unique and so innovative. And, we are looking for innovative cartoonist / manga-ka in the world who can devote him/herself to create a new manga.
Dr. Nakamats was awarded the 2005 Ig Nobel Prize for nutrition, “for photographing and retrospectively analyzing every meal he has consumed during a period of 34 years (and counting)”.
