Description
Apollo’s Song follows the tragic journey of Shogo, a young man whose abusive childhood has instilled in him a loathing for love so profound he finds himself compelled to acts of violence when he is witness to any act of intimacy or affection whether by human or beast. His hate is such that the gods intervene, cursing Shogo to experience love throughout the ages ultimately to have it ripped from his heart every time. From the Nazi atrocities of World War II to a dystopian future of human cloning, Shogo loses his heart, in so doing, healing the psychic scars of his childhood hatred.

to lost your love over and over and over again....how sad can it be? i thought, i thought there will be a happy ending, but the penalty of hating love is ever so high. even with this simplistic art, tezuka is masterful in wringing out the emotions from the readers, i cannot help but spill my tears with this pair of star-crossed lovers.
though it is depressing, it is a good kind of depression brought out by incredible, moving plot and highly developed characterization. please read this.

This is another great comic by Osamu Tezuka. It's got beutiful pictures and a great story. This comic is really thick, maybe about 500 or 600 pages long, but it has much less words then the other really thick one volume comics Vertical publishes, like Ode to Kirihito and MW. It is also much more in the shonen style of drawing. Pretty miuch anything by Osamu Tezuka is awesome.
