Hey! I just scanned and uploaded a collection of Genpei Akasegawa's left wing political cartoons from the 1970s. You can find it here:

https://archive.org/details/sakura-illustrated-collection

It contains Concerned Theatre Japan's English translation of the special issue. Although I didn't realize it was already on mangadex:

https://mangadex.org/title/43800/sakura-illustrated/comments/

More information about both Genpei Akasegawa's manga/illustration work as well as Concerned Theatre Japan:

Here's a neat little sequence. Apologies for the lazy color correction. I'm not sure if anyone's willing to translate, but this stuff is too cool not to share.

Lastly, here's a book about art during the 1960s/1970s protest cycle in Japan; it talks about Akasegawa's more well known counterfeit (anti-)art hijinks.

Good job m8.

Amazing stuff, Anon! Thank you for sharing this.

This is really cool, and good work posting those indeed.

>Japanese Left

Never sure what to make of the Japanese New Leftists. ThEy seem to embody both the worst and the best things of the New Left generation. Regardless, their history seems very interesting, so there should be more posted about that here, if it's not off topic to do so.

Wish I could help with the translating, but I can't. :-(

You are most welcome! Again I hope scanlators will pick it up at some point; do please share it with other people.

Yeah, scholarship on Japanese Old/New Left movements are pretty scarce. Aside from Gavin Walker and Patricia G. Steinhoff, there are few contemporary English-speaking scholars who're actually talking about them. From a cursory glance, New Left schisms from the JCP seem very similar to the Trotskyist splinter sects from CPUSA just a few decades prior only much, much more violent. I'm sure a Paul Le Blanc type figure could write a multi-volume series on them alone. Gavin Walker actually has a new book that came out recently; it contains translations of essays on the "Japanese '68"—here's an epub.

What's that second picture supposed to mean?

I wish I could tell you.

Bumping for interest.
