Hi no Tori is a collection of stories that all have something in common. The Phoenix, whose blood is believed to give an eternal life to one who drinks it. Therefore many seek to kill it, but as the Phoenix of the tale, it's reborn from the ashes. Stories take place in future and the past, where humans fight with each other as always, and everyone is afraid to die. But still, every story teaches a lesson: Life is beginning of an eternity, an never-ending cycle. (Source: ANN)

ED1: “Hi no Tori” by Mika Nakashima


Mostly typical Tezuka ham-fisted moral stories, but there were some thought-provoking episodes as well.


Ham-fisted message. Stories vary in quality, with ‘The Sun’ being the standout. Fails to thematically conclude in a satisfactory way.



    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
