Ayako (2010)

review 1: This is a very heavy socio political drama that challenges taboos. The story is somewhat bland at times because there is so much that we as Americans are unfamiliar with since they were things that occurred in Japan post war that we never learned about. The story spans almost 3 ...

review 1: The illustration is nostalgic. I've always wondered if the exaggerated features on the characters were representative of anything (kind of like in Peking Opera where a red painted face is symbolic of a misunderstood hero). The storytelling is good too. I like the notion of a rene...

review 1: You’ve probably heard the rumour that Hitler was part-Jewish thanks to a distant relative – the shock, the irony! etc. The rumour’s long been debunked but comics legend Osamu Tezuka took the idea and ran with it in his massive 1300+ page book, Message to Adolf, with Part 1 clocki...

review 1: This isn't my favorite of Tezuka's manga, but that really doesn't mean much. The story, about a princess with the heart of both a boy and a girl that disguises herself as a prince, is interesting and pretty unpredictable, and it's cool to see where so many of today's shoujo arche...

review 1: This was an odd mixture of enjoyment and alienation for me. I'm not a huge Tezuka aficionado, so it was a new experience to read his stuff, especially the more "adult" driven work. It feels weird to read: there are big themes and interesting characters, but a cartoony sensibility...

review 1: Well this is my second manga and I'm loving it, maybe it has something to do with it being medical and I can feel related to the cases and diseases. Despite the big flaws like transplanting part of a liver right away from one person to another with no tests or what so ever :D amo...

review 1: I think, like all other of Tezuka's books, that the story was very intriguing, unique, and appealing to audiences of all ages (although more inclined towards younger readers since the story is a little too fairy tale centered). There is action, suspense, and many twists that make...

review 1: This was one of the first mangas I physically bought (as opposed to reading online), and I loved it! The medical facts and realistic rational storyline really puts things in perspective that can relate to the adult as well as young reader, so this applies to all ages. My brother ...
