The Mountain of Life is where humanity and nature gained the strength to thrive from, a mysterious land formation powered with energy to bend the very laws of nature it empowers. A tragic plane accident leads to the death of dozens of families, but eight people survived the accident. When the fateful flight crashed into the mountain, it broke apart chunks of stones that channel a life-giving force in them, bringing eight strangers back to life. When confronted with their aberrational existence, a boy and a girl are forced to make a decision that will affect their lives and that of the other reanimated individuals. Being hunted down by the acolytes of the Grim Reaper, these people live a life beyond their natural time on Earth, but they will see the danger of their unnatural existence. Deputized as grim reapers with a specific task, the boy and girl are now posessed and on a mission: track down the other survivors and take their Stones of Life. Osamu Tezuka recasts the face of death as two youngsters, and their targets range from radio hosts and race car drivers to businessmen and even one that might challenge them to abandon their job and master in a chase for love. If you're already living on borrowed time, death will find a way to track you down and fix the problem, especially when you're one of the Dust 8. A short child, Ichitarou, is a bit bullied in his days at school. He crushes on Tomoko, the sweet girl that sits next to him, but he's nicknamed "Stupid Ichi" by everyone, from teachers to the class bully. When Ichi takes a trip and finds a book about hypnotism, he unlocks his innate ability and proceeds to bend the world to his whims. While Ichi is now the one in power, will he use this absurd ability to rule the world... or save it? This short story from Tezuka shows that "Stupid Ichi" might rise to the occasion, despite his short stature.

Amidst the chaos of World War II, two Japanese sailors hear of Zephyrus, an utterly captivating woman in the South Pacific. Many years have since passed, and now Zephyrus has resurfaced in Japan, wielding her mysterious power over all men to exact revenge for their crimes against women since the beginning of time! Gohonmatsu Seki is the only man with the ability to resist her allure, but even he seems ill-equipped to save his gender! Editorial Reviews: "The work is not perfect, I still find the final chapter to be a rushed, anti-climactic mess and the chapter involving a young doctor using Dreamscape-like tactics to cure a woman from her inability to speak is more than a little absurd and out of place. Still, the comic is emotionally draining in some spots, funny in others and Tezuka's view of human society is poignant. Though written in the late 1960s, his depiction of our civilization overcome by greed and power, stepping on or over those who get in the way, rings true today. Definitely one of my favorite comics by Japan's renowned author and illustrator, Swallowing the Earth shouldn't be missed."

Yaketpachi may want to move heaven and Earth to provide a life for Maria, but do teenagers truly know love? Osamu Tezuka brings the battle of the sexes to a paranormal comedy, where Yaketpachi and Maria explore their teenage years in High School, with all the trials and tribulations that come with it.

Tezuka brings a healthy dose of real-world sexual education to the drama of a love that can never be between a man and his sex doll.
