Osamu Tezuka’s Buddha: The Great Departure (2011)

Chapra and Tatta aren’t exactly two of the most charming, or memorable, characters in the manga universe. Cramming those pesky fictitious bunch into this truncated 1 hour 45 minutes brawl and blood very fictionalized story of Siddharta Gautama’s early life clearly don’t add much values and gravitas. Even the artwork only bears so little resemblance to Tezuka’s original style. And if you try seeing it as a light entertainment, in the end, this isn’t very entertaining.

My Rating: 3/10
