FAN will reveal the secret of the anime popularity

On June 6, the FAN TV channel, a part of Digital Television Russia, will tell about the legend of Japanese animation - Osamu Tezuka within the framework of Hinode Power Japan festival, the first time in the history being held online.

Osamu Tezuka is a Japanese manga artist, cartoonist, and animator. His prolific output, pioneering techniques, and innovative redefinitions of genres earned him such titles as "the Father of Manga", "the Godfather of Manga" and "the God of Manga". Additionally, he is often considered the Japanese equivalent to Walt Disney, who served as a major inspiration during Tezuka's formative years. Though this phrase praises the quality of his early manga works for children and animations, it also blurs the significant influence of his later, more literary, gekiga works.

The speaker of the FAN channel Lamara Karchava will tell about how Tezuka became an artist, what inspired the great master, about his key works and colossal impact on the industry.
