Some DVD players can be hacked to do multi-region. I have an Oppo-video DVD player that is set to play all regions. All I had to do was enter a 'cheat code' via the remote control. (https://itstillworks.com/make-oppo-dvd- ... 80937.html) If you can find a used Oppo DVD player, you can set it to play any DVD.

I've checked the website, and it's still available, but I don't have a Japanese account or any money to pay for it. Besides, I'm only 15, and I don't think my mother will let me have one yet... And I don't even live in Japan either... :(

If you want the dubbed episodes and you can play region 4 discs, this set on eBay is a steal: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Astro-Boy-Delu ... 3712444222

Ouch, shipping costs are outrageous.
I got mine from 'the rite stuff'.

Ah, it's showing up as free shipping for me. It didn't occur to me that it would be different for other people.

The robot in this picture looks quite similar to a robot from the 1980's version of Tetsujin-28/The New Adventures of Gigantor, though I don't know if he had a name.

In #175, I said that this robot reminded me of my sister's SNO-CONE maker. It was in the shape of a snow man; you put an ice cube in the top, smooshed it down with his hat, turned a crank in the back, & crushed ice came out though the belly. :p

This is my favorite part of the whole recap!
