Treating Tezuka Fans Like an Emperor

Jungle Emperor Leo illustration

In Japan package design is very influenced by the idea of gift giving — and as an otaku I’ve always love the fact that attention to detail and inclusion of little goodies tends to find its way into DVD packaging. The above illustration is for the DVD set Kimba the White Lion: The Courage to Begin a New Future. Of course Kimba is quite an old lion of anime at this point, but I love how the studio has the courage to play with a new look and take a chance with the illustration. But as if that wasn’t enough the package itself is a mini collection of all sorts of goodies:
