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.
That's what I was looking for. Thank you, YJ_Doodle. It's good to have a person like you be a member on ABO.
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?
Shibuya said a while back that ABR would air in France and the United States first, followed by Japan and other countries. My guess is that it will premiere in 2018 in France and the United States first based on the wording in the Nikkei article. I don't know what they mean by "developed countries" or "in order", but "the year after the next" tells me that we'll see ABR in 2018 at the earliest.
Until we get confirmation from Shibuya Productions themself, I'll change the thread title to "Astro Boy Reboot (2018 Series)". At this point, I'm not surprised if they decided to delay ABR again.
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) [...]
Ah, so it says that the movie will come out in 2019, not after 2019. Thanks for the clarification on that.
