It originated as a manga comic series started in 1952 by Osamu Tezuka, who is known as the "god of manga".

Plot summary

Astro Boy Volume 1, English version
Astro Boy Volume 1, English version

Astro Boy is a science fiction series set in a future where androids co-exist with humans. Its focus is on the adventures of the titular "Astro Boy", a powerful robot created by the head of the Ministry of Science Dr. Tenma (Dr. Boyton in the first series English anime, Dr. Balfus in the Canadian dub of the second series) in order to replace his son Tobio, or Astor Boyton III in the first series English anime, Toby in the remake of the first series English anime. After Tobio died in a car accident, Dr. Tenma built Astro in Tobio's image and treated him as lovingly as if he were the real Tobio, but soon came to the fact that the little android could not fill the void of his lost son, especially due to the fact that he wouldn't grow. In the original 1960 edition, Tenma rejected Astro and sold him to a cruel circus owner, Hamegg (also known as Cachatore), who abused the performers. In the 1980 edition, Astro naïvely signed himself away to the circus owner.

English version

For the English version, the producers, NBC Enterprises, were forced to abandon a literal translation of the name "Mighty Atom" due to potential legal threats from DC Comics, who already had a superhero comic by that name. They settled ultimately on "Astro Boy." Of the 193 episodes created in the series, 104 were adapted into the English version by Fred Ladd. The manga was not translated into English until Dark Horse Comics published it in the 2000s, although Gold Key Comics published an unauthorized version in the United States.[5] DC Comics is one of the largest American companies in comic book and related media publishing. ...

The Right Stuf International has released an 11-disc DVD collection of the first half of the series' run, with a second collection due later in 2006. The video and audio quality varies widely since the company was forced to make do with the best available sources they could find. This is due to the fact that the original masters were destroyed in 1975. According to Ladd, the masters were destroyed by NBC after the network had attempted to return them to Mushi Productions. Mushi, going through bankruptcy at the time, pleaded inability to take them, and so they were burned by NBC. Due to this, the show as currently seen consists of the English version (even in Japan, where it is shown with Japanese subtitles) supplemented with copies of some episodes taken from the masters, including the first episode, found in private archival collections.

Soon, there was no signal and no food supply, I knew it was about to be the end. But soon, I saw some frozen air melting and I was able to breathe. The trees on this asteroid bares fruit when they grow by day, but when night comes, the trees die. I wasn't the only one on this asteroid, for I met a wonderful robot name Kris Kinkle. Soon, we began working and working. Kris is a good robot even though he's not smart, but understanding. I later learned that the course to Earth will later be in the Year 2000.
