Senya ichiya monogatari

Eiichi Yamamoto Japan, 1969

Scorpio Velvet's rating of the film A Thousand and One Nights

Tezuka created Japan's first "adult" anime feature-film by bending in incredible animation (also cartoon-like), eroticism, humor, adventure, fantasy, and retelling one of the world's most important stories. I had a truly awesome time watching this today - Tezuka still remains Japan's first & true anime godfather. America sure needs to pick up a DVD/Blu-Ray release as well.
