“I don’t like it when people write off Robin Hood as a bad or just an okay movie because it reuses a lot of animation from prior movies. The budget wasn’t that great and animation is hard, I don’t blame the studio for cutting a couple corners in this case. It’s fine if people don’t like Robin Hood for the story or the characters, but I wish it would get more recognition.”
When three aliens, disguised as escaped human convicts, descend upon unsuspecting manga artist, Osamu Tezuka, and devour his brain, they expect to acquire all his thoughts and knowledge. Instead, all they get is a sudden, unrelenting feeling of the pressure of a impending deadline hanging over their heads… which only gets worse when the editors of his many manga publications start calling.
This peek behind the scenes of Tezuka’s life comes courtesy of his sci-fi series exploring the human mind, The Crater (1969-70).
