Bagi, the Monster of Mighty Nature

Story

  • The 7th special animated program for a 24-hour broadcast program is set up neither in space nor in the future, but in the present. Moreover, a special technique is used to improve the story's reality; the story synchronizes with actual time, as in the old "A Duel at Midday" or the recent "Nick of Time." There is no guest appearance of Tezuka Osamu's popular characters as before. Here, Tezuka Osamu concentrates on depicting a "crisis of the present." Tezuka Osamu's zeal is apparent in his participation in nine roles, including original plan, story line, rendition, character design, animation director, original pictures, motion pictures and color design. The "present crisis" involves the gene recombination crisis. This film was produced in 1984, when the Japanese government formally approved gene recombination experiments.
