Reference to award

What about adding something about the award that carries his name ?
Lvr 16:57, 27 Apr 2004 (UTC)

You mean 手塚賞, an award given from a Japanese publisher or another?
Unfortunately Tezuka Award redirects to Osamu Tezuka Culture Award -- two separate awards. A-giau 03:49, 5 Oct 2004 (UTC)

RACISM Tezuka is not racist (at least based on what we know of the man via-a-vis his work) saying that some pictures are a cartoon depiction and therefore he can be accused of racism is beyond childish. Section should be removed. Signed an angry Prussian. :-) —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:11, 20 November 2007 (UTC)


I didn't see anything about his death. I would add it myself but I am not sure of the exact date, only that he died in February 1989. I also had rumors that Tezuka's death caused a stronger national mourning than Hirohito's who died shortly before, can someone confirm that? Fafner 07:54, 17 Jan 2005 (UTC)

his home town of Kyoto

What means the caption? Tezuka was born in Toyonaka, Osaka prefecture and grew up in Takarazuka. Kyoto is not his home town IIRC. KIZU 07:10, 26 May 2004 (UTC)

There is some sort of Tezuka Museum in Kyoto, anyway, including a library of his Manga...

Should this page be at "Osamu Tezuka"?

This page should be at "Osamu Tezuka" - his name is better known under that order. WhisperToMe 06:55, 26 Jun 2004 (UTC)

On his death

>I also had rumors that Tezuka's death caused a stronger national mourning than Hirohito's who >died shortly before, can someone confirm that?

For being a Japanese, I may be a right person to comment on this. I was a university student at that time, and to me and to many of my friends, his death was as shocking as Hirohito's. But, my parents did not seem to be shocked so much.

So we could say Osamu Tezuka was important only for your generation, your parents' generation probably didn't know him the same way, or maybe considered him unimportant? Or on the other hand, you parents' generation was more attached than your own generation to Hirohito, who had been emperor since a very long time? Fafner 12:49, 23 July 2005 (UTC)

He is well known to all the generations of Japanese. But, my parents' generation don't care for Manga itself. Hence, the death of 'God of Manga' was nothing for them, while Hirohito's was something.

What he died of

Didn't Tezuka Osamu die of stomach cancer? Everything I've read about him says that was what he died from, including the official site. Doinkies 03:43, 8 April 2006 (UTC)


There are no references for any of the facts cited in this article. There are a few external site links, but there need to be references for all of the facts. ···日本穣? · Talk to Nihonjoe 20:01, 29 August 2006 (UTC)

One of the special features in Metropolis mentions these facts, but I don't own it so I can't really cite precisely. --SeizureDog 23:56, 6 September 2006 (UTC)
Use Manga! Manga! for the references... the page count, etc comes from there anyhow. So someone just needs to pull that reference and add it. --Hitsuji Kinno 09:31, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

Bander Book?

I can´t find anything here about this Anime about a redhaired prince lost in time and space, that I used to enjoy as a kid. Although I´m quite sure it is by Osamu Tezuka. 18:56, 8 December 2006 (UTC)

I believe you're talking about Phoenix. If I am wrong, please search around in Google or something, and let us know when you find something in. Thanks. Dooly00000 (talk · contribs · count)

A Picture of Him

A biographical article about such a prolific and influential talent deserves a picture of the man. That picture of the clock can be moved to another section where it would be more relevant. -UberMan5000 20:34, 21 December 2006 (UTC)

A medical reference

Yasuzumi, G., Tanaka, H., & Tezuka, O. (1960). Spermatogenesis in animals as revealed by electron microscopy: VIII. Relation between the nutritive cells and the developing spermatids in a pond snail, Cipangopaludina malleata Reeve. The Journal of Cell Biology, 7, 499-503. (The Journal of Cell Biology) I talked about this paper in the article of Osamu Teduka in Japanese Wikipedia. As you may know, he has a Medicinae & Philosophiae Doctor and left many medical drawings. There is a drawing in p. 4 of this paper, possibly sketched by Tezuka. I've not read it carefully yet, so I'm not sure who sketched it. If we identify the drawer as Tezuka, this paper would be worth mentioning in this article. What do you think of it? 23:11, 9 January 2007 (UTC) (revised by 23:53, 9 January 2007 (UTC))


Osamu wrote and drew the Adolf series. This big of info should be added. I am not adding it because I know nothing about Osamu or his work other then he made this graphical novel. --Joel M. 01:15, 6 April 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:ReallyKimbaTheWhiteLion.jpg

Image:ReallyKimbaTheWhiteLion.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page.

Every time I remove this site from the external links, somebody adds it again!!!

This site is NOT A VALID SOURCE!!!!!!

It's just a stupid website, where people go to argue about garbage on their tiny little forums.-- 21:29, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

Also, this guy is stalking me and harassing me, and he keeps adding the link again.-- 21:31, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

It's not harrassment. If you keep removing this link I keep putting it back, it's that simple. If you consider it is not a valid source, then why the other non-official links would be valid sources? Fafner 13:28, 4 September 2007 (UTC)
Stalking people is not okay.-- 15:20, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

It seems you take offense either at the fact that I qualified your edit as vandalism, or the fact that I consider you as Metropolis forever. The fact is that unregistered users remove links here and there without justification, and your unexplained edit looked like those, that are considered vandalism.

Because of an intuition, I contacted some moderators at forums, and they confirmed to me that your IP is the exact one that has been used by Metropolis forever, a controversial member who is very knowledgeable but sometimes behaves as a jerk. As a result, he/she was banned from this forum, as well as the one at forum. This reinforced my idea that it was vandalism.

If you aren't Metropolis forever, I apologize (although I still think you are, but I can't be sure). If you are genuinely thinking that this link should be removed, I apologize once more. But it isn't the point: your edit still isn't acceptable to me, as is in my opinion a valid source, at least not more or less that the non-official websites pointed by the other links that you didn't remove.

Continuing this edit war until one of us give up is even less acceptable, so we will probably have to call for someone to decide. What do you think about that?

PS: I was about to revert (again) your edit, as I consider that in case of a contestation such as this one the article should remain as it was before the edit war, but I decided not to do it in order to avoid making things worse. Fafner 19:29, 4 September 2007 (UTC)
