Golgo 13 Kowloon Assignment
The character was portrayed by Ken Takakura in the 1973 live-action film version of Golgo 13 and by Sonny Chiba in its 1977 sequel, Assignment Kowloon.
The character was voiced by Tetsuro Sagawa in The Professional and Akio Ohtsuka in Queen Bee.
Duke is voiced by Hiroshi Tachi in the 2008 television series.
It is also believed by some that Golgo 13 is actually Goro Serizawa, the sole survivor of the "Serizawa Family Murders". In 1986, Lead Publishing Company released four Golgo 13 trade paperbacks translated by Patrick Connolly.
The stories are picked from Golgo 13's forty-year history, and do not necessarily represent the original's order of publication.
The volumes are advertised under the moniker "13 volumes of Golgo 13's greatest hits." The first volume is entitled Golgo 13: Supergun.
In 1976, the manga won the 21st Shogakukan Manga Award for general manga.
But fuck the code name, his real name, or at least the alias he’s living under, is “Duke Togo.” I mean why would you even want people to call you Golgo 13 if you’re normally called Duke Togo?
Just stick with the one awesome name, in my opinion. This is a great role for Chiba because he’s just full of larger than life swagger.
In addition, the title character has appeared in a number of TV commercials in Japan, including NEC and Lotte Black Black.
Five video games have been released: Golgo 13: Top Secret Episode, The Mafat Conspiracy and three Japan-exclusive arcade games very similar to the Silent Scope series, using either the same or an incredibly similar cabinet.
