Tezuka Osamu was a pioneer who established the base of manga now known as one of the most influential pop cultures. So far manga has contributed to the development of cultures all over the world, and infiltrated into a wide range of industries as well.
In 1946, Tezuka made a debut as a manga artist though he had a medical degree. He continued to create manga works through his life to establish the realm of so-called Story Manga in postwar Japan.
Furthermore, he conveyed his thoughts for universal but serious themes, such as importance of life, warnings on the destruction of nature, and criticisms against war, to the readers by means of manga, as an accessible and easy way to public.
He was also a productive manga artist. Through his career, he drew 150,000 sheets of manuscripts for 700 manga titles. Such his works are still appealing to a lot of his fans.
Now, “From the Fragments of Tezuka Osamu”, the digital NFT art project based on numerous manga manuscripts by Tezuka Osamu, is finally revealed as the official NFT works authorized by Tezuka Productions.
