Thanks ChibiGoku, That's awesome.
Awww!, see what I mean, she's so cuuute. :) I have a 2006 Black Jack calender and it's great, lots of pics of Pinoko in it. :lol: What's the new show like? I plan to buy the dvds soon. I already have some older Black Jack dvds from the 90's, but there're only ovas, and don't have any thing to with the manga story, which I think this new show follows pretty well. I'd love to see Pinoko's origin story told in full color anime. :lol:

Not a bad start. It could use some pictures though.

I need a few with transparent backgrounds for the welcome page, but all the others have no need for them.

I have finished the Tezuka Osamu World Actors' browser, but cannot upload it at this time, because the host is doing maintenance. However, I expect to upload it soon. I will keep you posted. Anyway, it is a multi-frame scheme that has a scroll of names on the left, which when a name is clicked, open the page on the right. :lol:

Here is the URL for the Tezuka Osamu World Actors' browser. Note that it uses javascript to load several pages at once (into different frames), a thing that MS Internet Explorer coupled with SP2 might frown upon.

Please report anything that does not wolk. I already know that Shumari fails.

Enjoy!

"Welcome to Astroboy Forever's Tezuka Characters Browser"

Duh... My first thought: "Why would jeffbert name his characters browswer after me?" :unsure:

I'm with Firefox, so everything works well here (except the one you mentioned).

I didn't know Astro's mother ended up as Princess Saphire! :o I was scratching my head wondering where I had seen Notaarin... I think he's the one talking with Inspector Holmes at the beginning of "The Man-Made Solar Sphere". I had also found a little odd to see an identifiable asian in "The Genie From Outer Space" (who is "Tonanshipei"), because actually I would have expected to find a lot more than just one (or maybe two, I think one of Astro's classmate might be as well).

Very good work, jeffbert! Very useful! :D

She did not. You are confusing Mitchy with Sapphire. :D

Anyway, thanks for the compliments. I will fix the defective link today.

Mitchy herself portrayed Atom's mother in the "Astro Boy" series. [...] Moreover, she was not only the prototype for Atom she was also the model for Sapphire, the star of "Princess Knight".[/quote]

Hmm, as many times as I have read Mitchy's page, that just did not sink in. However, it is still a bit stretching the statement that "Mitchy was the model upon whom Sapphire was based," to say "Astro's mother ended up as Princess Saphire!" :lol:

But, I do not want any bad blood between us, so I will withhold any further argument. :D

Well I had never heard of Mitchy and I don't know enough about Saphire and Tezuka's world to have my own opinion, so I just took what was written there. Now, how true is that, I can't judge! ;) I only wanted to point out where I got the information, not put an end to the matter. :(

There would certainly not be any bad blood between us if you want to express another opinion. :huh: Hopefully I don't look like I don't want to hear another point of view without getting mad or frustrated. :unsure: This is a "forum de discussion", as we call it in French, so whoever doesn't want to discuss and hear other point of views has no business writing on one. I also have a lot of respect for you, so there's no reason why I would not want to read what you have to say. It's quite the opposite actually, you made me curious and I want to know! :)
