In the anime, wasn't Astro Boy created in the year 2001? How come he isn't created yet? (i know, it's just an anime)
My parents like Astro Boy and other old anime, because back then anime looked more realistic. I actually don't really like how it's drawn, i don't think it's anime-ish enough.
I have noticed that Omasu Tezuka(creator of Astro Boy) used a combination of anime (duh, he is known as the Father of Anime) and western cartoons.
i still like it, but it's just not anime-ish enough (for me anyways) compared to animes now.

It has been 35 years since I last saw an image of Astro Boy. I recall my father tossing me up in his arms and playing "Astro Boy" with me. I guess it was around the early 60's when I last saw the cartoon. Thanks for the memories!

Although it is a 4 cool feature project, I think that it will fit 2 courses personally. There are many redundant parts. If you choose episodes involving Dr. Temma and anti-robot organizations, it will be about 20 episodes. There are a lot of times of inflamation such as the appearance of a kaitou and sensational episodes of mob (if it is an episode of the main character ...) etc etc.
The vicinity of the last round was very good. However, it is normal to look at the whole.

OP in the second half
Character's character is Gj
It is getting better from the Showa era
[Bad point]
The balance of the face of Atlas personally seemed to be collapsed everywhere Design was terrible
I wanted CG to skip the full length halfway (Pluto edited only two episodes)
There is no seasonal feeling
[Comprehensive evaluation]
Even though it is a shame but regrettable that the last round and action scenes are not impressive, the character was good

I made remake of the original anime "TV Astro Boy" of TV animation work, and also made Tezuka characters of former years a guest appearance to enhance the charm of the story.

[Bad point]
There were some episodes I want you to animate, though not particularly so I wanted you to broadcast a bit more.

[Comprehensive evaluation]
When this work was aired, "Tetsujin 28" and "Cyborg 009", such as past animation works remade and became a hot topic. "Astro Boy" was also one of them without breaking out. Incidentally, in the case of Astro Boye, the point that I televised in 2003 according to my birth year became a depressing direction and it was even more exciting.

Except for the latter half of the content, I stuck to "complete one episode" and liked it. Even if it says anything, we had a lot of "Star System" which is the biggest feature of Tezuka's work plenty, drawing out the charm of the work. Characters which appeared for the first time, such as "Nanako Ink" and "Magma Ambassador" also made good taste, and spice was effective in the story. In addition to coping with "abuse" and "discrimination" against robots, the copying of Atom struggling among the robots who cause revolts is a thing that can withstand adult viewing well. This is due to the fact that Iron Man No. 28 "Shotaro's boy's suffering when the iron man became disposal of melting furnace due to the trilogy of World War II" or Cyborg 009 "It is made into a cyborg and constantly fought because it wears a special ability It's really worth seeing overlapping with 00 number cyborg's anguish "etc. The theme song is famous for ZONE things but I like Chemistry 's "NOW OR NEVER" and I also purchased a CD. Both images, stories, thematic songs are high quality, so it deserves a "very good" rating.

A deep tale of relationships between humans and robots.
The world view has become more futuristic, the urban areas have improved
The design of the new character was good
[Bad point]
The tempo of the story goes bad
Drawing instability
Overall the action scenes are bad, especially for Ituno Circus of Pluto is disappointing
[Comprehensive evaluation]
The animation technology dramatically improved from around the second term, the work itself was very beautiful with digital technology.
Action scenes and settings etc. are definitely upgraded level. (Though it is a matter of course ...)
Because the remake has come out in twenty years, 2011 will not come out in 2011 even after eight years yet It will be no more than ten years since it is a representative work of Japan I want you to put more power next time

It transforms into a laser gun by deforming the arm instead of the butt machine gun.
Relationship between Atom and Dr. Ochanomizu and Tianma.
A decision of zero.
Shibagaki is better in character than this one.
I was glad that electric light did not die (it will die in Showa version)
I have a secretary named Yoko.
That Mr. Higeyaji was becoming a detective of the core business. (Teacher's homeroom at Showa version)
Both Pluto is accurate.
New friends increased (Genius boy or something)
[Bad point]
I feel that the Blue Knight edition was long. (It's dark!
There are a lot of enemies (like a lamp or skunk or terrible than the Showa version)
Atlas is different from Showa version.
The disturbance just before the last round was sick.

[Comprehensive evaluation]
In the Showa version, the system for robots was already made of 4 episodes, but here it was darker than the Showa edition, as it was long before the last round, such as long coexistence of "robot and human beings" and a heavy story was pushed forward I also feel like.

This was the first time I saw Astro Boy's animation, but in my case I think that it was not a work that left such impressions so much.

However, unlike the picture, the story is quite heavy.

At that time the biped walking robot became fairly prevalent and the attention in that was Astro Boy.

I think that animation is also receiving that wave.

I think that OP was very good, and it attracted viewers.

But the story itself was like an ordinary anime for children.

The picture is beautiful.
The song is good. Especially the opening of ZONE.
The subtleties of Atom 's emotions are drawn firmly.
Where to deal with environmental problems.

[Bad point]
There was no need for power up.

[Comprehensive evaluation]
The monochrome version is more spirited and the tempo is better, I like the stories of one episode more.
This work is too sticky with hints of roughness.

It is the cut which I only see Heisei remake version (now work).

I have fun watching every week.
The late OP (Now or Never) was the best!
Tempo is fast and bad guys (ahead of the destination ahead)
I am astonished and aroused.

Evaluation is the best.

My name is Blue Railroad Public Security Officer who writes in comments on this site for the first time.

The reason why I chose "very good" is because I was interested in the world of the 21st century by my imagination, the second most favorite work in Tezuka's work (the most important is "black jack").
Although I talk about it, I myself watched ATOM after watching the monochrome version (CS) and the Nikko version (terrestrial wave), but I also liked the performance of Mr. Shimizu Mari who plays Atom at the same time.

Ten generalists> I am a blue railway public security officer, nice to meet you.
I think that the last round of Nittere version Astro Boy was as follows as "Atom's first love".
[Range to remember] A girl's robot and Atom become close friends 〓〓〓
However, bombs are set on the girl's body and there is no choice but to dismantle the girl to stop the bomb, the crying Atom and the girl are separated.
From the girl's dismantled parts, Atom exchanges the girl's feet with his feet

Although it was contents like the above, I think that there was a scene that Tezuka sensei himself appeared at the beginning and talked about saying "Atom = a girl" this time.

I saw only the color version of Showa.
Atlas is impressive and Atom can not remember much.
But Pluto's episode was pretty good.
Although I feel like I have stopped seeing it on the back-end program of Ultraman 80.
What was the last round?

Atom was remodeled into Heisei, did not he? I did not know at all. No, I wonder if there are memories that I was doing on TV while drowning? I have never watched it ...

In my case, I entered from the original and I saw the Atom of the Showa color version, is not it? So, the evaluation is for the color version of this Showa.

There is not a bad impression, but if I say that I liked it, it looks like it was not that much ...
I love the original and I have a memory I was looking forward to so much that animation starts.

There is a memorable thing that the drawing was very beautiful, but there are not many impressions of the episode left.
Has the image of the original been too strong and the memory was overwritten?
I remember early in the beginning ... but it was sold to the circus from birth, taken over by Dr. Ochanomizu,
The series of flows that go to school and are bullied by classmates are memorable.

I wonder if I could not keep up with the story of Atlas? Over there, it was too bad, or too heavy Atlas was poorly poor, and the endless story was too hard to watch. But I remember thinking I was thinking "What's up with you ~!" With the adult's appearance restored.
Did not he treat the Atlas too much?

I have only seen Astro Boy Astro Boy, but it is the best masterpiece even if I do it only for one year. Robotania edition at the end of the story is already the best. It is regrettable that the original author is not alive at this time. I would like you to do original video or movie someday in this 2003 edition.

Although I love manga (although it is said that although the difference between made and unlikely is intense)
The color animated version is a level that neither the old work nor the current work can be admitted. The stupidity of the production side that places the Atlas and the Blue Knight as the main to forcibly pass the axis to the Atom's scenario originally written like an omnibus. Mr. Tezuka, I liked Blue Knight who wrote Muryeyari in editing, I hated it.
Atlas was also originally omega circuit talking about small neta, but what I need to deal with so big is that it is the results that preceded only the circumstances of the creator trying to set the theme.
As a masterpiece with a child level idea, it is the ultimate slumming that dwarfs the world of Atom rather. I'd like to apologize to Professor Tezuka on Daisukeza.

An impression of the Astro Boy version

Although it was full of various tsukkomi from the first time, the excitement of No. 1 was the place where there was a robot with human thought besides Atom.
It seems to me that Rovita had a heart even though he thought of it ..

I am the one who watched it in the same time zone. Although I was recording this time, I did not even see what I had recorded before.

Since the Atom of the black and white era has not seen in real time indeed,
I was watching things after becoming color.

I'd like to see a recent remake version, but I can not find a rental, so I'm lonely "I wonder if it was not really popular." Even if I borrow it for the time, it is a thing before remake.

Recent children think that Aime has been raised only by Pokemon? Well, the rest is Yu-Gi-Oh, Conan or Hika Go.

The Gundam is also in the center of the generations of over teenagers to thirties who are making noise about "not seeing"
I also understand that "You have to show the recent child like an atom".

Atom who finished without being made noises as much as I thought even if remaking it with great care.
Whether it can be said that the times have changed.

It was kind of ordinary animation.
It seems that the audience rating is higher than that of Digi Charat, but it is because people do not know so much at all.
Absolutely this is interesting.

The original is very interesting. The evaluation is close to the highest, but remake version animation is too bad. People who have never read the original should read it. It is really interesting. It is not simply a battle of a robot but a place to seriously grasp the relationship between humans and robots, a passing of emotions between humans and robots, how humans change for robots, how to live, environmental problems, etc. It is drawn on various deep themes. If you read Atom, the current manga artist knows how influenced the Tezuka cartoon, and you can easily understand the deterioration of the quality of comics now.

Remake version was also fun and fun.
I think that the design of the robot was also modern and cool.

But if you read the original, the idea will change ...

"Astro Boy, Astro Boy" is a Gaelicatic work like "Atom's Old Story."
I saw it halfway but "Robot Ball" and "Bear" were good. Especially the robot ball is cute Astro Boy, the impression that made a story carefully stretching the hint of the back with chitin.
On the other hand, the opening of the robot circus did not close the mouth. It is abnormal that the members of the last circus stop running away and start a show, but I do not understand why Atom is doing a generator. I do not fight anything Atomu! It seems she can not see how strangely Atom interpretation deciding as if to harbor the power you have is bad as it is transparent.
After watching about half, I did not see it (because it was so painful because it was painful), but I have been watching it for about two weeks now. Especially for now. . . . . Well it's still on its way.
The only thing I think is that you have not withdrawn from the old work (manga version or monochrome version) that included children's elements and adult elements miscellaneously in the world of adult interpretation. Then I do not know what is the bank image of Arm Cannon only. It is enviable as far as monochrome fans have little use of banks, why only that?

When I was looking for a voice actor of Atom, I wrote "a person who can sing a song", but after all, did the voice actor doing something sing song? I wonder if I will sing from now.

Is it that only "Astro Boy" is the subject of all successive works?
That would be the evaluation for the monochrome version I saw most. . . .
The first year is still in the experimental stage, but it is wonderful from the second year when the production position has been set to some extent and it has shifted to the original animation route. Taking full advantage of the neutral setting, I can not get bored with variations and ideas far beyond the original making the story with Tezuka alone.
At "Ghost Ship" and "Dream Machine", Atom is drawn as a strong existence of the human complex more than the original, and the theme which is not only bright and fun is expressed in "Raflescia", "Report from the future", "Alps angel" etc. doing. "The last day of the earth" "Snow Lion (the universe leopard)" "Star of Me〓〓 (Iwan no stupid)" further up the original work and flowered. Many fantasy colorful works also.
But when it comes to the second half, the design of the character is often seen as easy (using), and also because it began to rely on outsourcing for drawing, 'when it is time for him to say' Atom! It seems that the television has been on the long term but it is short of breath in the second term.
Even so, no matter how the authors say, this is unmistakably masterpiece in the masterpiece.

My father who knows old anime said that he saw a remake and said that "the story is too heavy for children to see."
I myself ... I was watching the first one ... but the picture is beautiful.
By the way I like the movie version "Metropolis".
