Makoto Tezuka (手塚 眞, Tezuka Makoto, born 11 August 1961), also known as Macoto Tezka, is a Japanese film and anime director, born in Tokyo. He partially owns Tezuka Productions and helped in releasing the posthumous works of his father, Osamu Tezuka. He also runs his own company, Neontetra. He is married to manga artist Reiko Okano. Tezuka is a descendent of Hattori Hanzō,[1] a famous ninja and samurai who faithfully served Tokugawa Ieyasu during the Sengoku period in Japan. He supervised Naoki Urasawa's Pluto manga series, as it adopts a story arc of his father's own manga Astro Boy.
