    he's the one that's said to have given birth to anime
    the whole big eyes and everything else, one of (if not THE first) to have started it all
    and hi no tori (bird of fire, or phoenix) is a GREAT story, if you've seen Princess Mononoke, then you'll like this, it's in the same vain (not exactly the same, but still great nonetheless)

    not sure about the game though

    Were it not for the fact that it probably uses lots and lots of kanji I don't know (even though I should), I would check this out. Phoenix was a decent manga series, if not somewhat depressing.

    This is beautiful. They're actually doing a musical version I am hoping to get tickets for.

    May I know why there's 3 releases of this Hi no Tori and all of them share the same boxart?

    What the heck is this game about?

    i think it's manga books for on your DS.
    seeing the size of the rom, they made it in 3 because no current DS-card can handle the full size(over 700MB)

    Yeah it's just a manga series.
    The title is
    Read via the DS- Hi no Tori (Phoenix) Osamu Tezuka.

    The box art is similar (not the same, the colors are different) because its three volumes (DS carts) of the same series.

    That said it's one of the most beautiful manga series ever and well worth a read, even if you read it in English. I've read a lot of manga in English and Japanese and outside of maybe his series Buddha, I don't think anything quite captures humanity, its foibles, awfulness, and triumphs, like this.

    Interesting side note, Tezuka was born in Osaka and Kyoto train station is a tribute to him (featuring his characters, including this clock with the Hi no Tori he designed).

    a whole lot of high quality manga scans i guess.

    those can take up quite some space.

    Man, I know we could probably find an English version and read it in ComicBookDS, but this looks really classy and I wish it was in English.
