Kobayashi Yoshinori debuted in 1976.
Kobayashi Yoshinori is famous for being a right-wing cartoonist. He publishes a magazine called “WASHISM," and prides himself on being a straight-talking populist who stands up to bad guys and says what the politicians are afraid to say. He’s like Rush Limbaugh – a friendly, funny guy crusading for justice , (making his opponents seem weak-minded, illogical, and humorless). But unlike some populists, Kobayashi tries to be very logical and well-reasoned in his approach. His comics are a deliberate mix of reasoned argument, self-righteous thunder, and self-mockery/bad puns. He’s been doing comics for over 20 years, but he’s no shy OTAKU – he does public speaking and debating with other politically-minded showbiz people. He also travels to other countries, mostly third-world Asian countries, and talks to the people there.
