Atom: The Beginning Chapter Discussions

Postby _n0iro_ » 3 months ago

Atom: The Beginning is a manga prequel to Osamu Tezuka's Astro Boy series illustrated by Tetsuro Kasahara and written with the support of Masami Yuki and Makoto Tezuka, Osamu Tezukas son. It began serialization in Hero's Inc.'s Monthly Hero's magazine on December 1, 2014.

Japan in the near future suffers an unexplained major disaster. Five years later, reconstruction is well underway. Umataro Tenma and Hiroshi Ochanomizu are two genius graduate students studying robotics and have recently completed a robot called A106 that features their experimental "Bewusstsein" AI. They pin all their hope on robot development while both of them have different ideas on what robots should be. Tenma wants to create a god, while Ochanomizu wants create a friend. What and who will their creation A106 be?

Since the manga is on-going I though it would be cool to have a thread where can discuss current chapters and volumes.

There was an Anime based on this manga that ran for a single 'season'. I think it might still be available on Crunchy Roll.
BTW A106 is a Japanese play on words that means "Atom"

The new chapter 85 is out:

The newest chapter is always free for two weeks (until the next gets released).

The manga is getting more and more tragic, especially compared to how light hearted it started. I feel like the arc might come to a dramatic conclusion soon.
