In this second half of Apollo’s Song, Shogo, a young man whose abusive childhood has instilled in him a loathing for love, begins to see the virtues of love as he repeatedly experiences love lost from within the depths of his mind. Throughout the ages, his affections for others would bring him inspiration, strength and ultimately joy, unfortunately having been punished by the Gods each time a senerio appeared to be headed towards an ideal ending he would have love ripped from his heart every time. Shogo loses his heart and his soul in the process, before tragically dealing with the psychological scars of his childhood hatred.
Master storyteller Osamu Tezuka’s Apollo’s Song is a lyrical tour-de-force on the human spirit, the destruction of hate, and the triumph of love.
