I've only read the first 2 parts and I've not seen the any of the Rintaro OVAs yet; part 1 was kinda alright story-wise but worth reading for the inventive drawings & paneling alone and part 2 might be the most thought provoking writing I've seen from Tezuka so far. His other stuff can be clever in various ways, like using allegories to give people a fresh look at real-world issues (ex. robot president arc in Astro Boy, the Strongest Robot arc) but Phoenix v2 actually made me think about my general views of existence itself and that's fucking amazing for a shonen manga with Popeye inspired designs and silly comedy like this in it.

It also perfectly embodies the "melancholic but optimistic" feeling I got from Omega Factor.
