Getting Ready For Adventures: Tezuka Osamu's Jumping

I don't know too much about Tezuka Osamu, other than some theoretical academic stuff on his interest in ambivalent or hyper illustrations of gender. Tezuka, a Japanese animator, is known for using hermaphroditism and gender reversal in manga. 

I really like this short animation, though it doesn't deal with gender at all. It feels especially appropriate as we prepare to take off on a complex adventure, which will surely be filled with mundane events that, with surreal qualities and memorable imagery, should equal the conventional, glittering spectacles.
