Takao Saito’s drawing of his anti-hero. Tellingly, says Saito, the character of Golgo 13 has managed to capture the Japanese imagination without being even slightly easy to like. On Saturday October 10, Japan heaved a collective sigh of relief. The yen remained stable, the stock market did not crash and the country’s finance minister did not fall to a perfectly aimed headshot from the world’s deadliest assassin. He has inspired bestselling business books, advertised countless products and, in his quietly homicidal way, been an everyman eyewitness to five decades of Japanese postwar engagement with the wider world.
