Product Description

A research scientist models a secret, atomic-powered robot boy on his deceased son. After jolting to life, Astro Boy tirelessly fights for justice. Includes 50 episodes on 5 DVD's, with 29 never before seen tin the USA.

When Osamu Tezuka created Tetsuwan Atom (literally Iron-arm Atom) a.k.a. Astro Boy, he set his birthdate as April 7, 2003--51 years after the initial manga and 40 years after the groundbreaking television series debuted. Sony produced this third incarnation in 2003, and a few episodes aired on American TV in 2004. A combination of drawn and computer-generated animation, the new version is far more lavish than the initial black-and-white series or the 1980 color remake. The artists strive to preserve Tezuka's drawing style, keeping Astro's outsized eyes and Dr. O'Shay's pickle nose. Spaceships and other robots float effortlessly by, but Astro's legs shoot old-fashioned rocket flairs.

The newly born Astro is a complete innocent, but as he explores various aspects of the world, he develops a strong sense of purpose, aiding those in need. His state-of-the-art brain includes kokoro, which can be translated as "heart," "spirit," or "will," which makes him more human. The conflict between humans and robots--which some critics have interpreted as a metaphor for racism distinguishes--escalates into a battle at the city of Robotonia in Antarctica. Astro strives to make peace between the hostile factions, although many of the conflicts were sparked by Dr. Tenma, who originally created him. Although visually appealing, this lush reinterpretation lacks the gritty charm of Tezuka's low-budget original. The only extra is a short "remaking of"; the dialogue is dubbed in English, Spanish, and Portuguese--but not Japanese. (Unrated, suitable for ages 8 and older: cartoon violence) --Charles Solomon

Format: DVD
I saw the theatrical movie the day it came out and loved it, so went and bought the 1980s color remake version DVD set and this 2003 version DVD set. I gave this product 4 stars because the series itself is great and I would highly recommend purchasing it, but there are a few flaws with this DVD set that made it so I could not give it 5 stars.

1. My primary problem with this set is it does not have the option of Japanese with English translation subtitles that I prefer having while watching anime (the 1980s set did though).

2. My next concern is there are several scenes missing throughout the episodes. Also most of the episodes are out of order, but that didn't bother me as much as the lack of Japanese language option and the missing scenes.
--Many of the missing scenes I don't understand why they cut, like the scene in the second episode that explains why Astro sleeps even though he's a robot.
--A couple more examples are: 1)the missing scenes of how Tobio died, Dr. Tenma finding Tobio after the car accident, and crying over his dead son (there's no blood/gore) in a couple episodes; 2)in the first episode when Astro is flying for the first time they cut some cute parts of his interactions with robots and humans (including a man and his daughter who you see later in the episode and other episodes).
--In this DVD set Atlas is said to have always been a robot and is just remade, but in the uncut he was actually the man's son who died in an accident and Dr. Tenma agrees to make the robot with the boy's memories (like he did with Tobio).
--Also, the episodes are originally in widescreen.

Format: DVD
to reduce confusion of Astro Boy DVD series, please note that there have been 3 series so far: the Black and White 1963 series, the 1980 First Color version, and the 2003 Color version with different stories.

The black and white 1963 version has 193 episodes.

The 1980 version has 52 episodes for the Japanese version, with the first and second episodes merged and cut into 1 episode as the US version. The birth of the character Atlas is removed in the US version. As a result, the US version only has 51 episodes.

The 2003 version has 50 episodes. This version once again has one more episode in the Japanese version. The US version has 1 episode less, which is replaced by a "clip show episode". (probably meaning frame by frame). Personally, I think the 1980 version is slightly cuter than the 2003 version. The 2003 version is more lavish.

More information can be found on Wikipedia: use the keyword Astro Boy, and then try Astro Boy 1980 and Astro Boy 2003

Astro, the beginning of all the world's anime. This young robot boy with the ability to think and feel like a human is truly a joy to have in anyone's anime collection. When the series aired on KTLA and later on Cartoon Network, I was impressed and astonished. Superb, top quality anime in all its glory, that is Astro Boy! Too bad both networks cut the series out of their line-ups shortly after it started. Their loss.

The DVD collection comes in a 5-CD set, with 10 episodes each. According to the box, 29 of these 50 episodes were not aired in the U.S. and I would have to agree. Some of these I have never seen before and I know Cartoon Network aired more episodes than KTLA, so if I didn't seen them on T.V., they must not have been planned on being released here. As for the anime itself, all I can say is "Wow." They did a superb job revamping the first anime in history into this masterpiece.

The visual quality is incredible. Everything from electricity to circuit boards to explosions to Astro's arm cannon attack, they all please the eyes. Voice acting is also very well-done, each character sounds exactly as they look. There are Spanish and Portuguese versions of the episodes, but no Japanese sadly and neither have subtitles. That's okay though, it doesn't make the anime less enjoyable. Plus, these two languages sound pretty good on the anime, especially if you're a pro in understanding either.

The only thing I can say that is off about this great collection is that the episode order is a bit misplaced. They first show you Astro's sister Zoran on Disc 2, but she actually is officially introduced on Disc 3. Also, flashbacks are shown in one episode, but they are of scenes that happen in future episodes. A slight mistake they have made, but I won't hold it against them.
