To be fair, I like that Leo has blue eyes, not because it is more pleasing to me aesthetically- even though it kind of is- but because it makes more sense. Leo is a white lion. Most purely white animals like that have blue eyes- or red eyes... Of course, the decision was made before white lions were confirmed to be an actual thing... Not only do they not live in the part of Africa that Leo supposedly hails from, but they are not albino, as was the seeming assumption about them when the show was made (you can see a bit of pink on his eyelids, and his eyes are blue, so...). White lions are, in fact, leucistic, and can have more "normal" colored eyes, in addition to, yes, blue. One thing that has bothered me about many interpretations of Leo is the brown eyes, however: no lion has eyes that color, so far as I know, white or otherwise...

Anyways, getting off topic... Atom's colors were probably chosen to match his outfit better. Or something. I still like it, though. Black hair with green eyes seems an unusual combination... if you're not Harry Potter, anyway.

Actually, his hair is blue. I know it's dark enough that it might occasionally be mistaken for black, but it is definitely blue.

I think it's bc I'm apparently good about color that I noticed that. (Only if I stare at it long enough, though; but I am fairly certain that in the show at least, it is a very, very dark blue. It's not presented the same way that most black-haired characters are.)

I looked at the poster, and something just hit me:

What if the flower girl on the left isn't Akino or Fubuki, but Mimi from the 2003 series?

Maybe the flower she's standing next to could be something related to the Robot Farm or something similar to it ...?

That's an interesting theory. The giant rose would definitely make more sense if the flower girl was based on Mimi!

Mm, I don't really think so. It sounds more like they're going to do like they did with the movie, and mostly surround him with new characters, with a few of the more important series mainstays scattered throughout- there are more of them this time, it seems; but this still seems to be the case. Although basing a character off of someone else isn't impossible, I don't suppose... and who knows if the other characters' names are even final. They only seem to be mentioned at all in one place...

As Astro flies through the city in the reboot trailer, it seems to me that there are no other inhabitants in said city. Tenmaluminati confirmed. :tenma:

This was posted like 2 years ago on Facebook, but I still found it really neat that they have all the Astro Boys throughout the years on the back(The 2003 one is kinda hard to see but you can see creepy chicken man:tenma :) . Maybe that means we have a fair chance of seeing reoccurring characters from all over?
