Tezuka's first venture into x-rated anime, A Thousand & One Nights blends wacky humour, eroticism and adventure as we follow Aldin’s journey from poor market boy to the richest man in the world.

Before Ralph Bakshi introduced us to to his X-rated animated feature Fritz the Cat, Astro Boy’s creator and master animator, Osamu Tezuka broke new ground with 1969’s A Thousand & One Nights, the first outing of his new adult oriented animation studio.

Through Tezuka’s mad, psychedelic lines we follow Aldin’s journey from poor market boy to richest man in the world, as he chases love through a vibrant reimagining of the classic Middle Eastern folk tales, encountering sailors, sultans and sirens Aldin eventually finds himself learning much more about life and the world than he ever expected.

Expect the pairing of Tezuka’s innovative animation style and Isao Tomita’s pioneering space music synthscape to transport you to a land far far away.
