:lol: Okay so maybe those answers don't hold water! :lol:


And neither do Astro's boots, from the sounds of it.

The main reason I don't post is because the only Astro Boy I'm familiar with is the 1980 series and the GBA Omega Factor game. If I had seen more, read more, played more, fed more, I would post more. That being as it is, I don't think this forum is necessarily "dead." You want a dead forum? Try any ...

Hey, I hope you don't mind me double-posting, but I just realized I had a question about Omega Factor that I forgot to ask and I wanted this topic bumped so people would see it: How closely does Omega Factor follow the 2003 series? Is the game at all a retelling of the 2003 series, or is it totally ...

My favorite part is when astro dies and is reborn I think at this point, we should mark this topic as containing spoilers... But yea, that part totally amazed me. The world gets blown up, and I was already thinking there must be a twist... ... ... ... ... ... But it blew my mind when the "twist" tu...

I've never played the PS2 game (my PS2 broke and I don't like Sony enough to have it replaced).

Question for those who liked the GBA game: What did you like best?

Personally I was really won over by how practically every character Osamu Tezuka ever invented appears in the game.

Omega Factor for GBA

So, who else has played this game? I love it. It's a perfect Astro Boy game--even if it is loosely based on the 2003 series, it works as a solid platformer, a good representation of Astro Boy and Tezuka's writing--the game's story and characters are very much Tezukan in style and personality--and fi...

To answer the topic question, here's the pros and cons of both sets: The R1 set by Manga: PRO : Every episode can be watched either in English or in Japanese with English subtitles. Any footage missing from these episodes is in the deleted scenes on the last disc. Can be gotten for less than $30 (in...

You can get cheap DVD players ($40 or less) that will do regionless as well as NTSC-to-PAL conversion and vice-versa. At least, I know this is true in the US, but I would imagine its true in the UK as well. Also, PC DVD-ROM drives can have their region changed and computers can display any type of v...

Plastic Skin

I've been watching my 80s DVDs again, and something kinda bugs me. Okay, its revealed in "The Birth of Astroboy" that his "skin" is a plastic suit that Dr. Tenma put on him after completing him. I assume this is true of all the other robots as well. What I don't get is, if this is the case, then why...

Now, during my first anime craze back in 1998, I had really wanted to see Astro Boy but never got the chance. No stores sold tapes, and I didn't know jack about ordering online back then. Sometime last year (or maybe it was earlier this year, I forget) I was in an anime mood, but I have a very limit...
