This manga, published in 1982 as “My Computer God – The Story of Bill Gates” (マイコンの神さま ビル・ゲイツ物語), in KoroKoro Comic, is a fascinating piece of history, and quite amusing to boot. As a piece of history, it harkens back to a time when Bill Gates was the Larry Page or Sergey Brin of his day, a dynamic entrepreneur in charge of an up and coming venture company, a far cry from the monolithic titan of corporate America Microsoft would later become. The entire story is translated below.
I left the format in right to left reading, and the original Japanese scans are available below.
As a historical aside, the manga does not use the term “PC” (or pasokon), instead opting for “My Computer”, or maikon.
Great credit goes to the original source for digging a thirty year old magazine out from some forgotten archive and taking the trouble to scan it.
