Naughty New Book of Tezuka Drawings

We all know Osamu Tezuka from his creations like Astro Boy, Black Jack, and Princess Knight, but those of us who have really looked into the history of anime and manga know that the scope of his work stretches far beyond that. Far, far beyond!

As if to prove this very point, a new book has been released in Japan collecting 1000 pages of Tezuka's manga that feature erotic adult content. It's called "Tezuka Osamu Eros 1000 Page", and you'll probably want to keep this one out of reach of children!

What's really, shall I say... interesting about this collection is that it's been edited by Osamu Tezuka's own daughter Rumiko. Wow, talk about awkward.

You can read more about this book, as well as see the uncensored cover image, at Anime Vice.

Dude, I agree with what Manetoys says. This is completely unexpected o_o;

Well, it's not as if it's all one erotic comic, it's just a collection of pages from different series that have this sort of content. It's pretty well known that he did this sort of stuff in series like MW and so forth. But he did so as part of a larger story and not just to make smut.
