Le Japon dans un avenir proche souffre d'une catastrophe majeure inexpliquée. Cinq ans plus tard, la reconstruction est bien engagée. Deux jeunes chercheurs d'une université consacrent tous leurs espoirs au développement des robots. Maintenant leur nouvelle interprétation du héros éternel Astro Boy jusqu'à sa naissance est sur le point de commencer!
A bit on the slow side and probably appealing more to Tezuka fans, the first episode felt like a pretty huge info dump and didn't really grab me. There might be some hope for the series though since it's being handled by Xebec, who were behind the recent Yamato 2199 remake and Keijo!!! (and next year's Full Metal Panic sequel)
The plot is pretty thin, but the characterization is not bad -- although it seems to be targeted more toward fans of the original show than a new audience. I might watch it again if the chance came my way.
looks good. i like seeing these classic characters re-interpreted.
