Tezuka's most famous work, Astro Boy (Tetsuwan Atom) ran
in the manga magazine Shonen from 1951-2. The anime debuted in weekly
30-minute segments from 1963, to great public and critical acclaim.
Astroboy is a robot boy - very strong, and can fly using rocket
propulsion. Under the guidance of Dr. Ochanomizu, his mentor, and
head of the science ministry, and along with his sister Astrogirl
whom Dr Ochanomizu has created, Astroboy embarks on adventures,
and fights threats to mankind.
Presumably to coincide with Astro Boy's birthday, who was born
on April 7, 2003, all-new episodes of the series have been created
and debuted, and will soon be shown here.
When Madman Entertainment started releasing Astro Boy on video
in Australia this was their promo flyer.
