Descriptions

  • July 15, 1962 to December 23, 1962
    Appeared serially in "Weekly Shonen Sunday" (Shogakukan, Inc.)

    (The Heibonsha World Encyclopedia defines the Ainu as a "minority aboriginal tribe of Hokkaido, Japan.")
    Although the central character of "Brave DAN" is an Ainu boy, the contents are pure fantasy. Here, Tezuka Osamu lets his prolific imagination run free, and the story, set in the vast wilderness of Hokkaido, reflects his lifelong love of nature and animals.
