By Osamu Tezuka

Osamu Tezuka’s vaunted storytelling genius, consummate ability at visible expression, and hot humanity blossom absolutely in his eight-volume epic of Siddhartha’s existence and occasions. Tezuka evidences his profound take hold of of the topic by way of contextualizing the Buddha’s rules; the emphasis is on move, motion, emotion, and clash because the prince Siddhartha runs clear of domestic, travels throughout India, and questions Hindu practices resembling ascetic self-mutilation and caste oppression. instead of suggest resignation and impassivity, Tezuka’s Buddha predicates enlightenment upon spotting the interconnectedness of lifestyles, having compassion for the pain, and ordering one’s existence sensibly. Philosophical segments are threaded into interpersonal occasions with ground-breaking visible dynamism through an artist who makes convinced by no means to lose his readers’ attention.Tezuka himself used to be a humanist instead of a Buddhist, and his magnum opus isn't really an try out at propaganda. Hermann Hesse’s novel or Bertolucci’s movie is similar during this regard; in truth, Tezuka’s procedure is a little bit irreverent in that it accommodates whatever that Western commentators usually eschew, particularly, humor.
