Retailers, fans and collectors outside of Japan have long desired a central source for getting the fabulous merchandise based on the titles from Tezuka Osamu, whose substantial output and innovative techniques earned him the revered reputation as the “father of the manga format”.

Now, Tezuka Productions, the company formed to cherish Tezuka’s spirit and promote his works, has chosen Diamond Comic Distributors as a preferred partner for distribution of its products to worldwide markets outside of Japan.

Starting in Diamond’s December Previews catalog, retailers and fans can look forward to a wide variety of Tezuka products, including toys, action figures, vinyl and resin figurines, playsets, busts, t-shirts, prints, comics, and other collectible products.

“Tezuka Osamu often said that manga and animation were just like the international auxiliary language of Esperanto, which increases understanding of peoples around the world, “said Mr. Yoshihiro Shimizu, Tezuka Productions’ General Manager. “Now his words and stories can be more broadly known as  Tezuka and fans around the world can connect with and enjoy their beloved characters more easily. I take off my hat to the skilled Asian craftsmen who make such excellent Japanese pop-culture goods and encourage retailers and fans to obtain those products through the thousands of stores in Diamond Comic Distributors’ global network.”
