  • Due to a delay in completion of "The Legend of the Forest," which was to be exhibited at the Hiroshima International Animation Festival, this work was quickly produced as a replacement. In a convenient world where vending machines offer just about everything, the hero procures whatever he needs from machines on his journey to see the creator. The story is very simple: he tries to make a replacement purchase of the earth. But the creator declines his request, saying simply that there's no such thing as a brand new earth. The simplicity of the story illustrates the depths of Tezuka Osamu's despair at the earth's degradation, forming the gist of this 4-minute work.
