Well drawn, Nice!

Technically wouldn't today be Atom's anniversary not his birthday? It's the anniversary of his citizenship. His birthday would either be the date that Tezuka set for his creation (which probably varies according to which version of the Manga or Anime you refer to), or the date that Tezuka first drew him.

April 7th is his birthday. His citizenship was kind of like a present to honor his given birth date. So, in a sense, it's actually both his anniversary and his birthday.

Today (April 7th) is the day that Astro was "activated" or born according to Tezuka's manga and anime. The year have been changed depending upon the version of the story you are reading/watching . . . but the original date was given as April 7, 2003.

So, if our dear Astro had actually come to exist on his original birthday, he'd be 10 years old today . . . or, I suppose, the equivalent of a 20 year old Tobio Tenma (who was supposedly 9 when he died - and it took a year to build Astro). :cool:

Happy Birthday to my favorite fictional character :astro: :wub:

It makes sense that they picked his birth date to honor him with citizenship.

Yeah. My friend thought it was wierd, but I think it's cute!

It's pretty amazing how one character can have such a big impact on the culture of an entire country.
