Toby/Astros mom

Postby Nora » 11 years ago

the manga nor the episodes really talked much about Toby or Astros mom. I just got finished at AWAcon where they had a panel for Astro Boy...and I asked the question and even the panelist didn't know much about her as a matter of fact he knew nothing.

I am aware that Astro had a robot mom and dad, but nothing is ever really said about the parents and the 1980s nor the 2003 shows scratched along the lines of Cobalt either so I donno much about him either. *Shrugges.*

Can anyone shed some light on this for me?

I was just looking at Tezuka in English and came across this page

Hopefully this will be a good start.

I admit I haven't seen the 60's series or read any of the old manga, maybe someone who has seen them can shed more light on this.

Oh wow...so her name was Hoshie...but nothing is still known about what had happened to her. There was some references that she had died giving birth to Toby and another that she had left him because of Tenma's infatuation for his work rather then his family. I guess we'll never really know.

She only appears in the Chronicles of Astro Boy, found in vols 6-8 of the manga. I thought the page I made was rather thorough. Oops, that page link above is for Atom's robot Mama. It does have a link to Hoshie's page, though.

Actually, she very briefly appears in Jetter Mars #26 (in Tenma's flashback), Ataru Moroboshi has provided a translation of the Spanish version somewhere on this forum. Here is the link: http://www.astroboy-online.com/forums/showthread.php?p=88288&highlight=misjudged+simple+matter+calculation#post88288

Oops ^^' I was close, but I had no idea that she had her own page. I guessed the tiny reference to her on the page was all that there would be about her.
Who knows, we might even see her come back somewhere in the movie (although it is highly doubtful)

I'm still not to thrilled with Tenma...*Glares at him.* But then again he must have missed Toby to go off and create a robot of him.

To be clear, in the JM version, Tenma had nothing to do with creating the robot (Mars).
