  • He debuted as the King of Evil in the early fantasy "Magic House", marshalling various monstrous forms to have a showdown with an army of scientists. Thereafter, he made devilish characters his forte and was continuously active in such roles. The devils drawn by Tezuka Osamu were not given scrawny bodies, in many instances they were like Saturn, big, brawny, muscular men or fascinating women, which reflected the trauma of Tezuka Osamu's youth. To a bullied child, the big guy was muscle personified and appeared to be a formidable devil, whilst to men, enchanting woman always appear to be concealing a satanic snare.
