Yes, there's a whole re-telling of the robot circus story in volume 7. Actually, it's more of a fleshing-out of the brief mention of it in volume 1, and was written 8 years earlier. There a few differences from the 60s and 80s retelling of it, especially in the characters. I won't spoil ...

I've only seen two episodes in B&W so I can comment even less on that. I have to agree the The Robot Vikings had the funniest bits in the colour series. The bit at the start where the television falls on the robot's head, then a picture of a head appears on the television screen was a classi...

There were a lot of characters that appeared in The Robot Stuntman that I'm sure I didn't pick. I know they ran past Dracula, but there are so many others that are obviously cameos. One of them was a man made of gold with flowing hair. His name is Magma, and Tezuka made an entire manga serie...

Good stuff. I started the same thing a couple of years ago, but so far it's only comprehensive for the 80s series. Perhaps when I've collected the information I need from the mangas and 60s series we can compare work. Actually the lack of consistency amongst versions of Astroboy used to frus...

When I was little, I remember thinking Astro's machine guns were just funny. Other kids at school thought the same thing. No one ever thought they were rude or demeaning in any way. As for VCRs, NTSC support is a standard feature in Australia. However, a cheap television (like a 34cm / 14" set) ...

We're all too shocked. ;-) Astro gets refuelled the same way by his dad in issue 10, page 63. And then on page 70 Astro shoots up with a drug called Yellow Horse. Man, they wouldn't get away with that today! BTW, most Australian VCRs sold in the last 10 years or so have NTSC support, alt...

Ok, I see it. It is cool. I only recently became interested in Osama, and now I see him unmasked in this video. Was this really in the series. Yes, in episode 36: The Time Machine. There were lots of appearances of Osamu's other characters in this episode, and the evil magician Gore turned out ...

I've done a search on "AMV Hosting" (Anime Music Video), and it looks like a lot of people have problems getting hosting for AMVs. The big problem being bandwidth. :-( I hope to make a better quality version when I can get all the Astroboy episodes on DVD, perhaps by then I will have come up wit...

That's odd ... I read the terms of service very thoroughly and I couldn't find anything to indicate there would be a problem. Stayed under the storage limit, didn't use direct links, etc. They've sent me no e-mails about it either. If you're not getting video, jeffbert, it probab...
