The cat's name seems to be "Astro Kitty"(Basically Atomcat) and there are two professors- "Dr. Brant" who has a profession with animals, and "Dr. Serena" who has a profession with plants.


Thank you for the additional info! So that disproves the "ginger Tenma" speculation. I'm actually pretty relieved about that.

Also, it seems like we've been getting to see a little more of Dr. Ochanomizu's family in recent official Astro Boy material, from Ran in Atom: The Beginning to his granddaughter in this version. Now I'd like to know who Ochanomizu married and who his own children are!

Well, he did have a wife(deceased) and grandson in PLUTO....

I've always enjoyed the idea of Ochanomizu having a family, it fits his fatherly character so well.

That's Astro Cat in the background - he and Astro have never appeared in an anime or manga together because Astro was depicted as a fictional character in the ASTRO CAT manga!

What good news. Ochanomizu having a family is a concept that just makes me really happy. He seems like he'd be a great dad/grandpa.
It's a magical day!

Oh he'd totally be a doting grandpa. Just look at how he was in the 2003 version, with no known family beyond the robokids. I bet he spoils his grandkids.

As mentioned in the Astro Boy Reboot thread, Ochanomizu's granddaughter's name is Suzu:

What's with the pink headed girls these days? Seems like a trend in recent Astro Boy adaptations... XD

He's officially considered a baby in this? Interesting

Oops, I must've assumed because it was reddish at a glance. The general redhead thing is reoccurring, though. :unsure:
