Descriptions

  • July 7, 1974 to March 19, 1978
    Appeared serially in "Weekly Shonen Magazine" (Kodansha Ltd.)

    This is a work that Tezuka Osamu wrote for "Weekly Shonen Magazine" after 19 years with that publication and, along with "Black Jack" (published in "Weekly Shonen Champion") is counted among his major works of the 1970s.
    At first, this work appeared as an independent episode on a monthly basis, but was later changed to a weekly. As "Weekly Shonen Magazine" at that time relied heavily on such story Manga as "Ore-wa-Teppei (I'm Teppei)" by Chiba Tetsuya and "Yakyukyo no Uta (Poem of the Baseball Craze)" by Mizushima Shinji, Tezuka Osamu's unique style came as a refreshing surprise to readers.
    Although "Weekly Shonen Magazine" was a boys' magazine, the appeal of the character Sharaku Hohsuke captured the attention of many female readers, as was also the case with "Black Jack."
