Tezuka Osamu

Often called the "God of Manga," Tezuka Osamu (1928-1989) was Japan's most prolific and popular twentieth-century manga and anime creator. He received a degree in medicine from Osaka University after World War II, but he turned away from the medical profession to break new ground as a career manga artist instead. His first production company was formed in 1961 under the name Mushi Productions; he later started Tezuka Productions. After great success with manga, he made his TV anime debut with Tetsuwan Atomu (known as Astro Boy in English) in 1963. In April 1994, the Osamu Tezuka Manga Museum was opened in his hometown of Takarazuka. With his works read internationally as well as domestically today, Tezuka has become a legend. The Tezuka Award and Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize are awarded to distinguished and promising manga artists.
