Astro Forever did it for the 1980 series.
Strange Wings did it for the 2003 series.
Since it's now available on DVD, how about I do it for the 2014 series?
I'd like to keep this thread separate from the general Little Astro Boy 2014 discussion thread due to the large amount of images it will contain.
Also, I'll be covering the English version of the series, since that version came before the Japanese version.
Without further ado, let's begin.
- Episode 1: Astro Becomes a Racer!
- Episode 2: Recycling Gone Wild
- Episode 3: Astro Goes to Space
- Episode 4: We Love Cleaning
- Episode 5: Fly! Mitchy
- Episode 6: Heart on Fire
- Episode 7: I'm Moler, You See?
- Episode 8: Astro and the 5 Adventures
Astro Becomes a Racer!
Every episode of 2014 Little Astro Boy starts with a kid-friendly-sounding rap, rapped by Ken (the blue-haired boy with the headband) and Astro, while everyone does some dance moves. This episode has the longest rap, since it introduces most of the characters in this show.
The rap goes as follows:
"Having fun, we're the best of friends!"
Ken and Astro:
"Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!"
"Friendly, smartly, calmly and cool! Everyone get down for the Robo Town kids!"
"I'm a robot, Astro's my name! I'll roll, I'll spin, I'll show you my game!"
"Not so easy! I've got the cool steps!"
"Pikko and Mitchy, we've got the hot steps!"
"Mitchy and I have the coolest of all steps!"
"I'll sing la-la-lee when you bring me your things, I'll invent anything, Reggie's the name!"
"(Can't understand what he's saying here.) Bring your sweets to me! I'm all about snacks! That's me, Tac!"
The following images in this post accompany the rap song:
^ Here, you can see pretty much the main cast of the show.
^ Our first shot of Robo Town, the setting for 2014 Little Astro Boy. Definitely a departure from Tokyo in the older Astro Boy anime series and Metro City in the 2003 series. The bright, vibrant colors are a staple of the show.
^ This pink-and-purple haired young lass is Mitchy. She'll get her own episode later on in the series.
^ The little egg-shaped character is Pikko. She's sort of a Jiminy Cricket to Astro and the other characters, often trying to explain something or make sense of something.
^ This is Reggie, who is a handy-dandy robot who can invent and build things.
^ As you can see here, he can be a bit clumsy at times.
^ This stout young fellow here is Tac. He LOVES to eat snacks.
