Astro Boy (1980)

Story

  • Although this is a remake of the earlier work, the content of each episode is arranged to suit the present. This work includes nine episodes of "Atom vs. Atlas," a series of confrontations between good and evil, much to Tezuka Osamu's taste. In other words, his intention was to let us see that both good and evil have their own weaknesses, through a depiction of the confrontation between these two in nine consecutive episodes.
