The Story of Tezuka Osamu

We found this wonderful website featuring the Life and Times of Tezuka Osamu, creator of Astroboy, Kimba the White Lion, and Black Jack. He is also known as the "Godfather of Anime." The website is in English with plenty of photos and facts covering not only his illustrious career in manga and anime, but his childhood upbringing and influences upon modern day animation. It's a great site if you are doing research on him. To check it out for yourself...
There also flash games available, but those are in Japanese. With some careful scrutiny, you should be able to figure out the rules for each. The game BANG! is a card matching game.  A card is drawn for you and you must match it with one of the face down cards above. You only have a few seconds to match as many as you can. It's a little more challenging than you may think.
