Storyline

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 Anonymous

Trivia

Whereas the character of Professor Ochanomizu had his name changed to "Dr. Elefun" in most American retellings of the Astro Boy saga, this series instead calls him "O'Shea", a well-known Irish name which happens to sound like an abbreviation of his original Japanese name. See more »

An underrated animated television series that deserves more attention
10 October 2017 | by webberrulesSee all my reviews

Astro Boy Mighty Atom is such an underrated series I have a bit of a soft spot for. I say "a bit" since I watched the English dub of the series in my childhood, and I do not like the English dub that much anymore. The domestic bias is so annoying to the point that the only way to watch the original Japanese version is to either watch it online on KissAnime or order the DVDs from Japan. I am from Australia, so that is why I said it. The animation is not the stereotypical style used in Japanese animation, which is a good thing. The voice acting by Makoto Tsumura as Atom, Hisashi Katsuta as Professor Ochanomizu, Shinya Owada as Doctor Tenma and Shadow, Miki Maruyama as Uran, Banjo Ginga as Officer Tawashi, Koji Ishii as Acetylene Lamp, Kosei Tomita as Higeoyaji, Akiko Kawase as Yuko Kisaragi, Kazuki Yao as Skunk, Hideyuki Tanaka as The Blue Knight, the list goes on, is fantastic. The music by Takashi Yoshimatsu is great and gives that orchestral composition that the English dub lacks, which is generic electronic music. The writing is great, which is a delicate balance of being epic and episodic, which is thanks to Chiaki Konaka, Ai Ohta, Keiichi Hasegawa, Sadayuki Murai, Kenji Konuta, Pamela Hickey, Dennys McCoy, Marc Handler, Hirotoshi Kobayashi, and Larry Biscof cooperating into the production of this series. The American writers must be fluent in Japanese, so much so they wrote the episodes in said language in a studio in Japan.
