    Biography

    Osamu Tezuka was a Japanese cartoonist, manga artist, and animator. Born in Osaka Prefecture, his prolific output, pioneering techniques, and innovative redefinitions of genres earned him such titles as "the God of Manga" (マンガの神様, Manga no Kami-sama), "the Father of Manga" (マンガの父, Manga no Chichi), and "the Godfather of Manga" (マンガの教父, Manga no Kyōfu). Additionally, he is often considered the Japanese equivalent to Walt Disney, who served as a major inspiration during Tezuka's formative years. Though this phrase praises the quality of his early comic works for children and animations, it also blurs the significant influence of his later, more literary, gekiga works.
