Happy Birthday, Osamu Tezuka

On this day, November 3rd, in 1928, a child who would eventually be known as the God of Manga was born. Were he still alive today, he'd be 81.

Even after running this blog for more than one year, I am still reading new things about him that amaze me. He truly was one of the greatest people to ever walk the planet. I have no doubts that he'd have been thrilled to have his likeness appear in the Astro Boy movie.

These past 12 months have been a year long celebration in Japan, paying respect the life and work of Osamu Tezuka to commemorate the 80th anniversary of his birth. Well, here on Astro Boy World, the celebration never stops! There is just so much more to talk about, and so much more that we can all learn from this incredible man.

Happy Birthday, Osamu Tezuka. You've been an inspiration to me, and a hero overall. The movie inspired by your work is excellent - aside from the political crap (damn you Hollywood!) I wish it had done better at the box office - but in any case, you are a shining star. Thanks for your wonderful work, God of Manga.
