A few weeks ago on Twitter, there was a discussion about Osamu Tezuka’s manga and whether he deserves the title “God of Manga”, and it got me thinking. I have to admit, back before I started writing about manga, I was kind of in agreement with animealmanac. I’d never read any of Tezuka’s manga before. I was familiar with Osamu Tezuka, mostly by reputation, and by the cartoon Kimba the White Lion. I have very found memories of Kimba, but never took Tezuka too seriously because of that. I knew he was called the “God of Manga”, but never understood why. And then I started writing reviews and receiving review copies.
