Astro Boy(1963)


  • This is one of Tezuka Osamu's monumental works that brought an epic-making change in the history of Japanese animation. This first animated TV series in Japan formed the basis for a long lasting and flourishing culture of Japanese animation. At the same time, the success of "Astro Boy" also clarified for television stations the fact that animation could make money even with tight budgets, which in turn produced a negative situation in which animators were constantly forced to work too hard with low wages. In those days, no sponsor would show any interest in "animated series" unless you were willing to "produce your work within a tight budget."

    The boy robot of the story, with 100,000 horsepower, beats villains using his seven powers. He caused a great sensation among children at that time.
