Osamu Tezuka, Manga and fire safety

Howdy Toasters,

If you’ve not heard of the retronaut you MUST check it out! It’s a fascinating cultural and historical archive of rarities, forgotten moments, moments we want to forget, the obscure, the beautiful and the surprising from all around the world.  It is genuinely one of my favourite sites.

Recently I discovered an unexpected treat from the Manga master, Osamu Tezuka – one for my anime loving heart. Among many, many other characters and stories Tezuka created Atomu Boy (or AstroBoy as we in the western world know him), Kimba the White Lion, Blackjack and one of my favourite Manga series, Buddha… just to name a few.

It appears he also added to the overall public safety of the Japanese with these Managa fire safety posters.

Manga and Fire Safety

Tezuka by the way is the man who have to thank for the modern day manga culture, he began and cultivated it and should always be remembered for his talent and creativity.
