Why did Osamu Tezuka give such a little robot an intense name of Atom?
Although humans have obtained the ability to create energy through nuclear power and the convenient life of dazzling abundance, they have also experienced irremediable wounds and fears through nuclear weapons.
Through Atom, Osamu Tezuka delivered a strong message that violence is never justified and to persuade by dialogue rather than overpowering and dominating the enemy.
Blitzway analyzed Atom and Osamu Tezuka’s message in animations and comic books, and was able to determine the direction of our statue production.
With formidable power hidden behind the cute and sleek appearance, we wanted to express what may look cute at a glance, but is strong with nuclear power
Lightly press the heart-shaped mechanism to make the heart start beating and glow red. Nuclear fusion of the two legs begins to pulsate slowly. Staring at reality, Atom’s eyes gaze with a cold and blue stare.
Atom’s warm heart in his cold metal body begins to beat.
