Nope

I am a collection of impluses.

Most of them unpleasant.

Although he almost never gets credit for it in the English-speaking world, Osamu Tezuka did a lot of very solid graphic design work.  He spent a great deal of time and effort in creating logos that graphically represented and resonated with his work.
We’ll start with three works many English-speaking fans will be familiar with: Phoenix [火の鳥] (1967-88), Dororo [どろろ] (1967-69), and Barbara [ばるぼら] (1973-74). Each of them is a very different series, and this clearly comes through in their logo designs. In his logo design for Phoenix [火の鳥], Tezuka conveys a sense of grandeur and majesty befitting his generation-spanning masterpiece, while Dororo's [どろろ] nearly oozes with the eeriness of a samurai-era ghost story.  On the other hand, Barbara's [ばるぼら] logo, without a single straight edge or angle, clearly demonstrates the organic and “rolling along” nature of the story, without falling into the trap of being overly whimsical.

Next up, take a look at the logos for Swallowing the Earth [地球を呑む] (1968-69), Buddha [ブッダ] (1972-83), and Ayako [奇子] (1972-73).
Again, three very different stories reflected in their logos. Swallowing the Earth [地球を呑む] portrays the feeling of frantic energy being barely contained, while the austerity and seriousness of Tezuka’s Buddha [ブッダ] almost feels chiseled out of the stone. Finally, the tight, thin but untidy lines of Ayako [奇子] exemplifies the corrupt underbelly of a family trying to save face.

Finally, let’s consider the logos for Apollo’s Song [アポロの歌] (1970), Ode to Kirihito [きりひと讃歌] (1970-71), and The Book of Human Insects [人間昆虫記] (1970-71).
The sharp straight lines and round balls of Apollo’s Song [アポロの歌] give it a very sci-fi feeling, something you can see being appealing to the story’s Queen Sigma.  While the plain, yet elegant lines of Ode to Kirihito [きりひと讃歌] make it almost feel like it was written on a medical chart. However, I think The Book of Human Insects [人間昆虫記] is actually the most interesting of the bunch.  Although some versions of this logo are slightly more organic or “insect-like”, here Tezuka stacks the characters in an almost harsh manner.  Visually it makes the reader climb, almost like using a ladder, to the top of the pile before it can be read. In a way, it reflects Toshiko Tomura’s insatiable need to reach the top of the social/corporate ladder.

“A promise, is a promise. I’m here to trade places with you.”
“What?! B-but… y-you’re…”
The Buddhist monk, Sanzo, pays popular manga artist Osamu Tezuka a visit and tells him that if HE thinks it’s so easy to lead Son Goku and his friends on a journey to India to recover sacred Buddhist texts, then HE should try it for a while.  Tezuka soon learns it’s a lot easier to draw manga than to star in it.
From My Son-Goku (1952-59), Osamu Tezuka’s take on the traditional Chinese classic piece of literature, Journey to the West.

Next up, logos for three of Osamu Tezuka’s most well-known series: Astro Boy [鉄腕アトム] (1952-68), Princess Knight [リボンの騎士] (1963-66), and Black Jack [ブラック・ジャック] (1973-83).
Again, the tone and style of each of these very different series is clearly evident from the graphic design of logos.

I just realized that “pun intended” is a pun on “unintended” and I’m literally about to gouge my eyes out I’m so angry

oh my fucking god

this is beautiful and i am so mad

No no no I’m really happy this makes me so happy

I realised this when trying to come up with a “pun unintended” pun and realised it was always there. Like an old flame from the war waiting for you by the pier every Sunday evening. You promised you would find her again, when the madness was over, but…
