The story, Tezuka's "life's work", is a collection of short to moderate length episodes, springing back and forth through time, revolving around the eponymous Phoenix. In one episode, the reader may be in ancient Japan during the period of the Heike War , and the next episode the reader would be flung into the far future.
Every story is based on the theme of the search for immortality. The common thread or character that binds all the various stories together is a Phoenix whose blood is believed to grant eternal youth to those who drink it.
