Astro Boy tells the story of a youthful robot boy - Astro - modeled after the deceased son of a research scientist, Dr. Tenma. Originally intended to be kept a secret, the atomic-powered robot becomes a reluctant superhero who fights for justice and peace for humans and robots alike. Created in Metro City, he lives among a 'retro-futuristic' society populated by humans and robots. His creator Dr. Tenma, head of the Ministry of Science, builds Astro in his son's image. Astro never can fill the void that Dr. Tenma feels over the loss of his son. Tenma shuts down Astro, burns down the Ministry of Science and flees. Some time later, Astro is discovered by Dr. O'Shay, the new head of the Ministry. Dr. O'Shay takes in Astro and serves as his mentor. Driven by the belief that robots and humans should be friends, Dr. O'Shay is Astro's greatest ally. He provides Astro with a home, enrolls him in school and creates a robot family for him. Astro possesses superb strength, including jet-rocket ... Written by
Besides Dr. Oshey, the only character to have a name change is Zoran. In the English version of the 1960s TV series, she was called Astrogirl, and Uran in the Japanese version. She was called Uran in the 1980s both English and Japanese versions as well. See more »
i personally rate this series 9/10. I have never seen the first ones but i think the sound and graphics are pioneering, like those of star wars in the 70s and 80s. The backgrounds could beat poke'mons in two seconds, and i love the way that the animation rolls nicely. The characters i am undecided on. For two reasons, one, some i hate utterly, and two, some i really like. The robot astroboy himself certainly is a great character, but his voice reminds me of a squeaky ballerina. I expected more of a gruff voice. Tenma certainly is well played, and while some of the plots deserve to be stuck onto he first doctors plots in the sixties, others are unbelievable but fit well. Skunk, the criminal, certainly contains good villain style. Id recommend this cartoon to any body who likes good anime shows, or robots and technology.
