Dororo Volume 1 (v. 1) - Osamu Tezuka I don't know why it is, but something about Tezuka's work really draws me in. This was no exception and while I don't think it's the deepest or best of his manga, the theme of everyone having a weakness within themselves which they can either try to overcome or give in to, as well as the emphasis on the importance of having people you care about for good or ill, really rang with me.Overall, this first volume is pretty heavy on action, unusual for one of Tezuka's manga in my experience, but unlike some later action comics is pretty easy to understand even in the heat of battle. The characters are a little flat, but interesting, and the little dashes of humor and pop culture are amusing. :)
