By Osamu Tezuka

Philosophical segments are threaded into interpersonal events with ground-breaking visible dynamism by means of an artist who makes certain by no means to lose his readers’ attention.Tezuka himself used to be a humanist instead of a Buddhist, and his magnum opus isn't really an try at propaganda. Hermann Hesse’s novel or Bertolucci’s movie is similar during this regard; in truth, Tezuka’s technique is a bit irreverent in that it comprises anything that Western commentators frequently eschew, specifically, humor.
