Tezuka Awards Winners

The Osamu Tezuka Cultural Awards were presented last week. Some beautiful looking books I look forward to seeing. Check out the full list here (in Japanese but I’m sure you can navigate through the book covers).

What I’m more interested in though, is the recipient of the special achievement award: manga critic Yoshihiro Yonezawa. Most notably the author of a three-part history of post-war genre manga (addressing shojo, Sci-Fi and gag manga), Seirinkogeisha (publishers of Axe) has just released a posthumous edition of his last historiograph:

Post-war erotic manga.
