The 'father of manga' joins Google's Cultural Institute
One of many (if not the) most influential manga artists ever, Osamu Tezuka, has joined the digital halls of the Google Cultural Institute. If there was no Tezuka, there would have in all probability been no Dragonball, no One Piece… properly, you get the image. The gathering features a Google Road View tour of the museum based in his honor, in addition to a superbly curated choice of photographs, paintings and video clips. It is all been timed to coincide with Atomu’s (Astro Boy) birthday, the robotic boy that is now sixty two years previous– and starred in Japan’s first (sure, first) anime. Whereas the gathering won’t contact the thoughts-blowing seven hundred complete manga titles the artist accomplished in his lifetime, it is a mighty nicely-introduced primer.
