Re: The confessions of a returning watcher.

I don't remember the episode name, but in it Kenichi (?) takes Kimba to Paris, and they go into a museum. There is an exhibit of future technology, including a number of robots. As the 'camera' pans to the left, showing each of the robots, I knew what the last one would be! https://www.astroboy-onli...

Re: The confessions of a returning watcher.

There WAS one episode of the 1963 anime that was shot in a primitive color similar to what Max Fleischer did with Betty Boop (Cinderella). I think the title was the "last days on earth". The episode is available on one of the DVD collections.

Re: The Grand theory of Artificial Idiocy

Religion has it's down sides. Just how many wars have been started in the name of a god? How many people have been slaughtered because they didn't believe in the god of an enemy? Ironically, the same god whose laws were to treat others as you would want to be treated, had his name used to inspire mu...

Re: The confessions of a returning watcher.

I suspect you were first introduced to Astro via the post Tezuka Animes (2009 movie and 2003 anime series). For the older crowd here, it was the other way, we first saw the 1963 or 1980 anime series, then discovered the manga. There was also the Jetter Mars anime done in the 70's. Mars was a 'clone'...

2. After being in the air for many hours, the aircraft set down on a dirt runway in the middle of a desert. The pilot opened the forward hatch, and lowered the gangway stairs so his three passengers could exit the aircraft. Pinoko carefully made her way down the narrow gangway to the dusty surface ...

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. After being confined home (sort of) for several months, I thought of a Michael Crichton novel (and film) whose plot is rather similar to current events. So here is the beginning of a cross over between it and Dr. Blackjack. I'll leave you guessing about whi...

Re: Paidon, manga made by Tezuka AI, gets official English translation

One of the policemen in a panel on page 12 looks like Tezuka.
And there's a character on page 13 with Astro's hair spikes.

Re: Astro Boy Inspired Episode of The Ducktales Reboot

I downloaded all 16 parts from Youtube. I wanted to combine them all into one file, but they were posted up on youtube in 3 different AV formats! VLC does play all of them, so I created a playlist that stitches all 16 parts into a single play (but with a few millisecond gaps between each). Astro B.O...

First Contact

I was digging though the files in my computer and found a story I'd started some years ago. It's a cross over with Star Trek, based on a 'Next Generation' movie. I'm up loading here the only two chapters I created. If I get enough encouragement, I might try to finish this tale First Contact 1 . Ast...
