Butaru Makeru (Star)
Butaru Makeru, recognizable by his paunch and puffy white mustache, is another of Tezuka’s scientist and doctor characters, appearing in many series from his debut in Dr. Mars in 1947 to fourteen appearances in Black Jack. Unlike Dr. Ochanomizu and Dr. Hanamaru who always have the good of science and mankind in mind, Butaru Makeru is frequently a conspirator, an ally of bad people, a taker of bribes, or simply pigheadedly wrong, and while he is rarely the source of any intentional evil, he is frequently responsible for it.
