    1. Oda Kirihitu , prva manga koju je Osamu Tezuka namijenio starijoj publici, kompleksna je pri a koju je autor iskoristio za eksperimentiranje Kad mladi lije nik Kirihitu Osanai krene istra ivati nepoznatu Monmowu bolest oti i e u udaljeno mjesto gdje se ona pojavljuje Bez slutnje da iza njegovog posjeta stoje nekakvi drugi motivi, Krihitu e nastojati ispuniti svoju du nost Bolest koja ljude degradira u primitivnije oblike ivota zanima ga i na profesionalnoj i na ljudskoj razini Teorije oko njenog [...]

    2. An absolute masterpiece by the master of manga Osamu Tezuka.The main character is turned into an animal by a mysterious disease, or at least he looks like one Yet he is human than most people he meets He is shunned, persecuted, abused as a freakshow and betrayed by his friends His life is made into even of a hell when the woman he loves, the only one that excepts him as he is, is killed Kirihito s best friend is so plagued by his own psychosis that he commits suicide to prevent himself from ra [...]

    3. I liked this volume MUCH than the first one It was a bit dramatic with a lot of crazy things happening Once again, I really really appreciate the realness of this story and how it showcases true human emotion, both the bad and the good, without a filter I suppose some of the topics in this manga could be considered touchy, probably especially at the time, but the intensity and the human reactions, I think, were spot on I always respect truthful, in your face honesty, so I can really dig Tezuka [...]

    4. Because Tezuka had been trained to be a doctor before giving up that career to do what he wanted, to create graphic novels and comics, I presume this is the reason he lists Kirohito as his favorite work, as medical as it is, but it is one of the darkest, and in my opinion, though we see elements that reveal he is a storytelling master, this one doesn t interest me, and as we sometimes see in Tezuka, rape occurs in ways that is than ordinarily disturbing ways.

    5. What a mix Part Odyssey, part Island of Doctor Moreau, with a dash of House, we get this sci fi manga about humans turning into dog like creatures Unexpected twists, quirky plots, and neurotic doctors It s all good stuff.

    6. second half of ode to kirihito the language translation is still sometimes stilted, and some of the plot elements still don t quite make sense but it s a fun read.
