Well there goes my Mimi theory, I guess. Unless it's not talking about her.

Also, I managed to look up the particular kanji that the translator rendered as "year after next" (再来年 – sarainen), and according to Jisho, that is indeed what it means. Hopefully it's just a miscommunication, though.

Yeah, I'm not quite sure what to believe right now. The Google Translation is pretty bad. Since it's not from Shibuya Productions themself, I'm inclined to not totally believe it. I'll change the thread title for now, but I'd rather get confirmation from the people actually working on it.

I do know some people who live and are fluent in a Japanese language. I will try and ask them to translate the page.

That would definitely help. :)

From what I can understand from the poor Japanese translation sites, Astro will be living in the house of the woman doctor character (perhaps his "mom"?) and (hopefully not) this article says that the series will be coming out the "year after next", which means another delay.

I really do hope there isn't another delay... But nonetheless, I'm surprised that the doctor lady really COULD be Atom's adopted mother. I was suspecting so, she seemed to be what Ochanomizu was in the past series. If Uran or Cobalt ever appear, she may be the one to build them. Or maybe Atom has human siblings, too?

And I think(Although I can't be sure) that the article was saying that LAB(The new series) was going to be aired the year after the next(2018). I sure hope so.

If this information is good, then it probably won't be long before an English article picks up on it. I hope so, anyways. The info about the second LAB series was good, so...

I got in touch with a user called, ‘Coffee-Pot’ on DA who said this:

“Astro boy is a young boy, at elementary age. The remake is aimed for adults. Tezuka (?) productions has partnered with Asian animations.

EUUUUGH too much kanji.

I think, they're making a remake of Astro Boy, except it’s in Kanji and I would assume it would be katakana, but then I can only read a bit of this. I usually ask my colleagues to help. If you actually want to translate it there is the app jisho or jishou, I don't have my phone. It’s quite good at guessing what words you're after.

I think they're making a new Astro Boy, or already have, and want to break the American market. Or foreign market. But, I mean, I don't need points. I'm pretty much guessing, comparing the words to the translation and trying to figure it out.

The problem is Japanese tends to omit a bunch of stuff, we would say "I think x" but Japanese just say yappari "think"... so it’s hard guessing.

Also there are particles like GA which means they don't know. It’s just, confusing. I can order food and do small talk. The rest I ask my friends ;A;

Don't give me points, lol, you probably gathered that much via Google translate. And also I thought it was a paragraph but its loads. I can't read all that ;A;

I hate kanji.”

I just read the paragraph (translated of course), and it's definitely talking about the Little Astro Boy series when it says "Year after next." I have a Japanese friend that may be able to help translate this as well.

여성 박사의 집에 사는 소년 로봇이 악당과 싸운다는 내용으로 내후년 이후 선진국을 시작으로 순차적으로 방영한다.

Okay, this is the korean version of Google Translate. I figured maybe since Korean and Japanese have closer roots it'd be better. Plus I can understand it :) Anyhow, according to my bilingual brain, it says:

The show will be aired to developed countries in order the year after the next and it will be about a boy robot that fights villains and lives in a female doctor's home.

I don't know what "aired to developed countries in order the year after the next" means. Does that mean it gets released in France and/or Japan in 2017 and then worldwide in 2018? Or is the whole series pushed off another year?

This was the only important chunk about the reboot, the rest it just about copyrights of story and reveals about the movie(2019, 3 years later) and new LAB series(2018, year after the next) and how the children's section of the Japanese animation industry has shrunk. There's also a part that reads:

일본의 해외 용 애니메이션은 더빙이 많은 리메이크 버전은 적다. 원작자의 동의를 얻기가 어렵 기 때문이다. 테즈카 프로는 "데즈카 오사무 씨의 정신을 해치지 않는 범위라면 원작의 수정을 유연하게 인정"(저작권 사업국 ;) 라고한다.

There isn't a big number of Japanese International animations with dubbing. It's because it's difficult to get the original creator's permission. Tezuka Productions says "If it does not harm Mr. Tezuka Osamu's mindset then we flexibly allow changes to the original"(Copyright Business Bureau).
