Masaru Miyazaki to Launch New Tezuka Biographical Manga

The first 2019 issue of Akita Shoten’s Weekly Shōnen Champion magazine has announced that Takeshi Nogami will launch the TV Anime Sōsaku Hika ~Tezuka Osamu to Anime o Tsukutta Wakamono-tachi~ (The Untold Story of the Creation of TV Anime: Osamu Tezuka and the Young People Who Created Anime) manga based on Masaru Miyazaki’s original work in the eighth 2019 issue on January 24, 2019.

The non-fiction manga will tell the story of how Osamu Tezuka and a team of “reckless young people” took on the challenge of producing the first weekly television anime. Tezuka himself helmed the production of the 1963 Astro Boy anime at his Mushi Production studio, and it became Japan’s first half-hour animated series. The show pioneered animation techniques and production methods that gave rise to the earliest aesthetics and styles of television anime.
