The animated TV series that Osamu Tezuka worked on in his final years! The original idea for "Jungle Emperor" was a white lion that could communicate with humans, but in this TV series, Leo is unable to talk to humans. This series is about the conflict between animals and humans, where they can't communicate with each other as perfectly as they do in the real world. So Leo is not a superhero by any means, but is portrayed as an adolescent boy who is struggling with life and repeatedly asking himself questions.
