Storm Fairy is a collection of three shojo manga tales that Tezuka penned in 1957. The first and lengthiest, coming in at just under a hundred pages, is the titular "Storm Fairy" which is a samurai-era romance. The next feature leaps into the (then) present with "Kokeshi Detective Agency", which is actually a strung together series of short stories featuring Pako, a precocious – and fearless – third-grader and her older, but fearful, brother Taro. Each short story solves a mystery, wIth Pako always in the lead – and sometimes by herself. It's a bit like a darker, more action-packed version of the Little Lulu and Tubbie stories by John Stanley that were coming out in the USA at the same time. The third and final tale is a major league mash-up. "Pink Angel" is a mix of pretty much every kind of manga: a princess, tough guys, fairy tale magic, big business, talking animals, crime, romance, espionage, an artist's garret, jet fighters... you name it.
