Talk about all things Astro Boy!
I've just watched the episode recently, and I have to say, it's pretty emotional! And while the episode's ending wasn't as much of a downer as I originally thought, it still is quite tear-jerking. Mars is released from the Ministry of Science, leaving him free to live with Miri and Dr. Kamashiro, but he lost his creator Dr. Yamanoue. And just as their relationship was starting to improve too! Losing someone you love, especially if it's your father, is truly a terrible, terrible thing to go through!
I remember feeling really shocked when I saw this episode, at the time I hard a hard time imagining a character who had very comedic moments (which Dr. Y had a lot of them) ever getting killed off in a cartoon, that was usually reserved for more serious characters in my experience at the time.
