This is not personal, I just don't think anyone is listening. For the
Barrel appears to have NOTHING to do with Nagano! The first page of
the Newtype site has credits, and those credits are:

Character Designer:
Shigeto Koyama

Junji Ohkubo

Masaki Apsy

Gichi Ohtsuka

Now, I hate to overstress this, but as it has been pointed out a few
times now, none of these names are Mamuro Nagano. I do agree that it
looks indicative of his art, but he had nothing to do with it if the
credits are to be believed.
