Hi no Tori (1956-57), is Osamu Tezuka's second crack at its concept. When it came time to work on a new series as a follow-up to the very popular Ribbon no Kishi (1953-56), Tezuka decided to return to the story begun in Hi no Tori serialized in Manga Shonen (1954-55)—one that had been abruptly cut short by the sudden demise of the magazine a year earlier. However, instead of simply trying to continue the story from where it had been left hanging, Tezuka decided to reboot the series completely. Drawing, the chapters "Egypt, Greece, and Rome," with its setting in ancient Europe, Again, however, this was never completed.

Hi no Tori is a collection of stories that all have something in common. The Phoenix, whose blood is believed to give an eternal life to one who drinks it. Therefore many seek to kill it, but as the Phoenix of the tale, it's reborn from the ashes. Stories take place in future and the past, where humans fight with each other as always, and everyone is afraid to die. But still, every story teaches a lesson: Life is the beginning of an eternity, an never-ending cycle.
