Although those who read this blog, know my obsessions with pop French and British culture from the 40's to the 60's, I also have a passion for Japan via early to mid 20th Century. "Astro Boy" strikes as a perfect example of what Japan was going through after the war. They just released a DVD package of the early Astro Boy cartoons. Some of these early anime episodes were considered lost or destroyed, so it's nice to see this package here as an example of Osamu Tezuka's genius at work.

If you ever go to Osaka or planning to go, I strongly recommend the Tezuka Museum. It is a fantastic place, where the Museum is actually an amine rocket. It's really really beautiful.
