About Osamu Tezuka

Osamu Tezuka is the creator of Unico, but his work spans over several decades. He was born on November 3, 1928 in Toyonaka, Osaka Prefecture in Japan. Growing up, Tezuka’s parents exposed him to many creative outlets, including art, animation, comics, theater, and more. As a child, he enjoyed drawing and creating comics.

During WWII, Tezuka’s experience with war changed the way he viewed the world, realizing the fragile preciousness of life. He vowed to become a physician to help others, but ultimately returned to his passion for making comics for the rest of his career.

Known as the “God of Manga,” Tezuka’s works have reached people of all ages and from around the world. Besides Unico, Tezuka is the creator of Astro Boy, Black Jack, Princess Knight, Jungle Emperor Leo/Kimba the White Lion, and many more.

About the Site

Who Runs This Site?

Hello!
This site is run by me, Crystal (aka Xellis)! I’ve been a fan of Unico since the late 80s after my parents rented the first movie, The Fantastic Adventures of Unico, from the video store. I quickly fell in love and it wasn’t until I was much older that I started researching everything about the movies, manga, merchandise, etc. After many years, I’m still discovering so much!

And no, I’m not paid to maintain this site. I’m a fan who simply wants to preserve as much data as I can and share it with others — especially those who do not speak Japanese and want to learn more.

はじめまして!
私の名前はクリスタル(別名:ゼリス)です。このサイトを管理しています。80年代後半、両親がビデオ屋で最初の映画「ファンタスティック・アドベンチャーズ・オブ・ユニコ」を借りてきてから、私はユニコのファンです。すぐに恋に落ち、映画、漫画、グッズなど、あらゆることを調べ始めたのは、もっと大きくなってからでした。何年も経った今でも、たくさんの発見があります!
