Firstly, I would recommend to buy this than Ode to Kirihito.
Secondly, if Tezuka replaced the goddess Athena with the Phoenix, there we would have had another chapter of Phoenix.
Thirdly, there idea and concept and story-telling part of this book are brilliant but not perfect. Sometimes it was like the story doesn't flow very smoothly. He could have done it ways better.
Fourthly, the story is a mixing metaphor of the Buddha teaching, the reincarnation set in Phoenix and the Greek myth. Many things for one to think of.
Lastly, whatever, it is still a must-read for Tezuka fans, amongst Phoenix and Buddha.
