I'm sometimes scared at how bad my memory is. Watching the first two episodes, I realized I remember pretty much nothing from the manga... but the good thing is that I get to experience it for the first time all over again!

These episodes were fantastic. It's like Monster set in Astro Boy's universe.

Got to episode 5. It feels like a mix between Astroboy and Ghost in the Shell. Urusawa's designs seem like a similar style Tezuka used to pull as there is a bluehaired Johan from Monster with the same voice

Yes, the studio vibe as such here is very Production I.G. for me. I mean, if I were watching it without knowing that would have been my guess over, say, vintage Madhouse (which would be more expected).

Finished it. It's a masterpiece.

The animation was perhaps not the best, but the pacing, voice acting, and music were perfect. And the writing is of course incredible, even if there are several elements that require suspension of disbelief. Pluto feels like a product of its time with the obvious parallels to the war in Irak, yet at the same time its themes remain timeless.

Very curious to know what Fubram thought of the rest of the story. I'd personally rank Epsilon's story above North 2's. And Gesicht's several levels above that.

I was confused at first, but then I realized you're talking about the English dub. Funny they got the same person.

That Dr. Tenma is the creator of Astro Boy ("Atom") and appears in Tezuka's original work. (I just started watching the colored remake of Tetsuwan Atom from 1980.) I wonder if Urasawa borrowed the name for his character in Monster.

Pretty much every major character in here appeared in Astro Boy in Tezuka's style.

Also, the shadow of Dr. Black Jack is suspected for the guest appearance for treating the young music composer.

And finished Pluto. Really liked it enough to try Astroboy.

It was definitely him, he was voiced by Akio Ōtsuka who voices Black Jack in various modern versions.
