By Osamu Tezuka

Osamu Tezuka’s vaunted storytelling genius, consummate ability at visible expression, and hot humanity blossom totally in his eight-volume epic of Siddhartha’s lifestyles and occasions. Tezuka evidences his profound seize of the topic through contextualizing the Buddha’s principles; the emphasis is on circulate, motion, emotion, and clash because the prince Siddhartha runs clear of domestic, travels throughout India, and questions Hindu practices corresponding to ascetic self-mutilation and caste oppression. instead of suggest resignation and impassivity, Tezuka’s Buddha predicates enlightenment upon spotting the interconnectedness of lifestyles, having compassion for the agony, and ordering one’s existence sensibly. Philosophical segments are threaded into interpersonal occasions with ground-breaking visible dynamism via an artist who makes certain by no means to lose his readers’ attention.Tezuka himself was once a humanist instead of a Buddhist, and his magnum opus isn't an try out at propaganda. Hermann Hesse’s novel or Bertolucci’s movie is analogous during this regard; in reality, Tezuka’s strategy is a bit of irreverent in that it comprises anything that Western commentators usually eschew, specifically, humor.
