Apparently, this short is supposed to be some sort of parody on the Bible's book of Genesis that depicts the creation of life on Earth, only this short features Eve created first instead of Adam. Unlike other Tezuka experimental works I've sampled, I'm not really sure what Tezuka was trying to emphasize here as the humor fell flat for me. Maybe someone else could fill in the blanks for me with what Genesis is trying to tell. But as it is, this is one of the weaker experimental shorts I've seen from Tezuka thus far.
