If you like Japanese manga and anime, then you will know that Osamu Tezuka, the “God of manga”, was one of the early pioneers of this exciting Japanese art form. Astro Boy, perhaps his most well known manga has been hugely popular in Japan since its inception in 1952 and often cited as the character that bought manga and anime to the mainstream. It is so popular that Astro Boy was even made into a computer animated Hollywood film in 2009!
