The '03 series is the only version where Epsilon's a female, and it's also the least known/popular version. I don't see any way to expect a female.

I honestly didn't really like how Tenma replaced many villains in the 2003 series, compared to the manga where his appearances all seemed justified and developed his character. Now I'll say right now that I read every story in the real publication order, which I'm really glad I did. As you're readin...

I think Tenma's gonna win this thread by a landslide.... I'd say him too. I especially like how mysterious he is in the manga. Each time he shows up, he takes you by surprise, as you slowly learn his motivations. It just made me wish we could see him more often, which was sorta "fixed" in the '03 se...

I believe when this movie comes out, they WON’T focus on Astro in the publicity. I don’t think they’ll call him Astro, I think they’ll call him Atom, and finally the whole world will know the whole history of who the character really is, and where it was set (not some fictio...

I certainly won't hide the similarity. After all, Astro Boy, despite not extremely well known, is at least more well known then the Pluto manga. I won't be suprised if in the trailer they said "from the creator of Astor Boy" or "based of Astro Boy" or something like that. Because Illumination makes...

I wonder if they'll try to "hide" the connection with Astro Boy. Like it's been said already, it's very probable Atom will keep his Japanese name (if he even is in the movie). However, I can sort of imagine that were the movie turn out to be a huge success, we would get tons of new Astro Boy DVD rel...

I propose Skunk should always be introduced in an episode by leaning against a lamp post and lighting a cigarette.


Oh yes... That is pure unadulterated greatness.

I'm pretty sure they only used the name Metro City in the film to make it sound familiar, as the name was used in the 2003 anime. And as far as I know, there were no ruins around the 2003's Metro City. That's true. But it's still nearly impossible to make a robot sci-fi anything nowadays without th...
