Well, there's Kimba the White Lion, which ironically is only used now in conversation of whether Lion King is plagiarized or not. Although considering the people who stirs the pot only ever use the anime series as fuel, Tezuka's name probably don't get bandied around to those who listen.

His art, yeah. His content? Buddha and Adolf, to name a few, are timeless. If he wrote them in prose instead of in comic form, no one would be saying it's a "hallmark for their time". Let alone some posthumous spinoffs, the fact that Dororo is getting an anime next year pretty much proves people of the present can still enjoy his works.

It was 90 years since his birth at November 3rd and there are still several exhibitions going on. Saw one myself just yesterday.

I think it's more disgusting that we still judge people and say it's disgusting for what they do or don't know in this day and age...

You know it's like people telling others what they should or shouldn't like.

Even if something is a timeless classic that doesn't mean it offers the same enjoyment as something else. It's a medium for entertainment so I think people judging people for not knowing (for their enjoyment) irrelevant information is rather arrogant.

I always felt that his greatest impact was not his manga work but him turning down Kubrick's offer to work on 2001: A Space Odyssey. Japanese media would be seen much differently had he found a way to take the offer.

He was a good mangaka, no doubt. But to idolize him or even name him "inventor of manga" -> no way
In the same time period you can find also lots of other names which also have lots of influences, sometimes even each other.
Just few came quickly to mind: Akira Matsumoto, Mitsuteru Yokoyama, Sampei Shirato, Shigeru Mizuki,Yoshiharu Tsuge, Fukushima Tetsuji, Sōji Yamakawa just to name few.

For me i couldn't find the proper answer in the poll, so maybe a sarcastic "who?" would be the most fitting answer.

First anime I ever saw was one of the Unico films based on his mangas. It was 1989 or 1990.

Disney's The Lion King was definitely a ripoff of his Kimba the White Lion.

His best suff imo was Blackjack.
