Jetter Mars

Story

  • Unlike Astro Boy, who is a superhero robot with seven different powers, this is a story of a robot that has his worries and grows up just like a human child. Mars is a boy named after the god of war in Roman Mythology. Dr. Yamanoue, who created Mars's body, tries to use the robot in military affairs while Dr. Kawashimo, creator of Mars's artificial intelligence, strongly opposes that idea. So this is a story of an android that is torn between its "body for fighting" and "heart for loving." The concept of conflict between two different fundamentals within one person is one of Tezuka Osamu's prominent themes.
