Osamu Tezuka, ao ser apresentado por estar terras ocidentais, sempre é comparado a um Walt Disney do Japão - esteve na vanguarda do mangá e do anime, contribuido na construção de uma estética e de uma difusão antes inexistentes dessa arte, além de ter construido uma carreira prolífica e de inúmeros sucessos. Em suma, cunhou uma indústria. Porém, excetuando sua igual abordagem a temas universais como em Disney, mergulhou em águas bem mais profundas, sem pudor em relação a temas políticos, sexuais ...more

Cat de cat decent.
Tot nu se ridica la nivelul unei lecturi de calitate in primul rand datorita lipsei de veridicitate a evenimentelor si personajelor reale si, in al doilea rand, datorita multiplelor hiatusuri in evolutia povetii.
Ca sa nu mai spun ca sunt o gramada de replici de-a dreptul stupide...
Mare pacat de grafica.. mare pacat...

Osamu Tezukan laadukkaan sarjakuvan neljännessä osassa keskeisenä teemana ovat nationalistisen ajattelutavan ja militarismin nurjat puoli. Fiktio sekoittuu entistä voimakkaammin faktaan: aikaisemmista osista tuttujen henkilöiden tiet risteävät muun muassa neuvostoliittolaisten laskuun vakoilleen Richard Sorgen kanssa, joka lähettämillään tiedoilla oli omalta osaltaan aiheuttamassa natsi-Saksan tappioita. Adolf Kauffman joutuu puolestaan tekemisiin Hitleriä vastaan suunnattun salaliiton kanssa ka ...more

I had sincerely thought that third volume of Adolf was absolute peak of this piece. Now, after finishing fourth volume I have to correct myself. Tezuka Osamu proves once again that he is master of gradation. While he keeps narrating the story of three Adolfs he manages to implements romantic story which resembles Pierre et Luce by Romain Rolland.

I love how distinctive style of Mr. Tezuka can present emotions.

Al momento el tomo que mas me ha gustado, creo que el autor, con ciertas licencias artísticas para remarcar personajes, narra de manera muy interesante el desarrollo de la segunda guerra mundial. La trama se complica y hay escenarios muy buenos, por ejemplo la guerra psicológica dentro de un submarino, que es clave para el desarrollo de la historia.

Cerita di jilid kali ini sebenarnya kelanjutan dari pencarian Sachi Honda di jilid 3 yang sayangnya berujung tragis dan agak menggantung. Kemudian cerita berlanjut ke kembali bertemunya Nyonya Kauffman & Touge dan bagaimana kelanjutan kisah Adolff Kauffman di Jerman. Somehow dua cerita tadi, yang mungkin kita ngga akan duga, jadi nyambung di akhir cerita.

I started with the fourth book in the series and even though it could be read alone I went back to the beginning. I was impressed like everyone else. I've never read a manga book and reading this series was not a disappointed.

Started with this book without realizing it was the fourth in the series. Liked it, but set it aside around page 64 until I could get ahold of the first three.

Un manga intelligent et bouleversant sur l'absurdité qu'est la guerre, sur la folie humaine mais aussi une ode au courage. Grandiose

The thrilling story paces nicely towards the conclusion. This like the rest of Adolf is a most read for manga lovers.
