The Savannah College of Art and Design offered comics art in 1992 as an elective to a handful of students. Tezuka was a leader in developing the studio system by creating a special code that keyed his staff to knowing how they were to complete his drawings for him.

A very short story in full color about the memories of walking along the path with blossoming cosmos. Much-discussed in recent years has been the unacknowledged and uncompensated origin of Disney's The Lion King in Tezuka's manga and anime creation, Kimba the White Lion.
