Today is the birthday of the “father of manga”, as he was known to be.
Osamu Tezuka would have been 88 years old today had he not passed away in 1989.
I don’t need to go into a lot of detail to remind you who he is; the man created Astro Boy!
If you want to see a nice story of his life in flash animation form, head over to this site and check it out, it’s pretty cool.
The man truly was the Father of Manga, and it’s important to never forget what he accomplished for the entertainment industry in Japan and the rest of the world.
