... One can possibly start by pointing to 1947, when a work that revolutionized manga was published and became a huge best-seller.

The masterpiece, copies of which now fetch more than ¥1 million among collectors, is being reprinted in February in a version true to the original, prompted by numerous manga enthusiasts who have kept debating the secret of the birth of the genre.

The work is the 192-page "Shin-Takarajima" ("New Treasure Island") by the late Osamu Tezuka, which is said to mark the start of story-manga — cartoons that cover hundreds of pages with dramatic drawings and a long, complex and often serious story. In the West these have come to be known as graphic novels.

"I think you can say Japanese story-manga started with 'Shin-Takarajima,' " said Minoru Kotoku, publishing department chief at Tezuka Production, which manages the copyright of Tezuka's works.

"Shin-Takarajima" is believed to have sold 400,000 to 800,000 copies, even though it came out only two years after the end of World War II, which had left the country poverty-stricken. ...
