Here is another "grown up" Pinoko image. This one is from Episode #3 "Thieving Dog".
Here Pinoko imagines an anniversary with her husband (BJ).
Next here is an image where Hosuke Sharaku wants to role play as Atom.
So count this as yet another Astro reference in BlackJack.
Just watched the Young Black Jack film today. Man, it was such an amazing movie. Black Jack's actor was great and I liked how Nagisa drew a picture book about Pinoko and BJ. That was cute. I sure hope they make another film someday. (Though my stupid brother, who hates anything Tezuka keeps being negative and says they won't. )
Anyways, it was an excellent film, and who knows? Maybe another one will come out in the future. I do hope so! ^^!
I just watched it on youtube. It was good, and I liked the way they even managed to have Pinoko (as a drawing) and Hyotantsugi (as a little statue) in it!
