#151 Atom All Alone - hitoribochi no Atomu

I need to share pictures from this episode. It stems from he original japanese 60's Astro Boy series.
I will try to summarize the storyline, depending on how far my broken Japanese gets me:

A magician robot named "Pulse" appeared in the city and intended to hypnotise the humans into a happy state of mind, in order of being able to control them all. With the help of Dr. Ochanomizu, who already has been hypnotised, Pulse built a giant hypnotising machine (named "Lucky Machine") for spreading his hypnotising waves across the whole city.
Atom, however, didn't get affected at all by the waves and experienced terrible misunderstanding against his person and got treated like a cast-out, even so by his own parents.
As the story continues, Atom encounters the little boy Takashi, who also remained unaffected by the hypno-waves. Atom was glad to have found someone who still liked him and played with him.
Alongside and with the cooperation of Takashi, Atom eventually succeeded in defeating Pulse.

The pics:
Image
Atom sneaks into the Ministry Of Science to destroy the hypnotising machine, but is caught by Pulse and both Dr. Ochanomizu and Higeoyaji (both already hypnotised).

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
"Wait! Listen to me first!"

Image
Atom first surrendered, but managed to escape a few seconds later.

Image
:cry:

This is where the cut-back moves in. Atom starts to reminisce how this all came to be.

Image
Atom was peacefully strolling around when suddenly robot Pulse was calling his name. "Huh? Who's calling me?"

Image
Pulse wants Atom to join him for controlling the humans, but Atom refuses. "No! No way!"

Image
Pulse keeps insisting.

Image
:lol: While Dr. Ochanomizu assembles the hypno-machine, Higeoyaji distracts himself with a puzzle-toy.
At this point, both Ochanomizu and Higeoyaji already had been hypnotised by Pulse.

Image

Image
Atom confronts Pulse: "What have you done to the professor?"

Image
Ochanomizu wanted to exchange Atom's electronic brain so he'd become receptive for the hypno-waves too.
Luckily, Atom escaped in time.
"What's wrong with the professor?"

It breaks my heart seeing him like this. :cry:

Image
Atom sneaks to his house.

Image
Atom hears his dad ranting what a bad robot he was for not obeying Dr. Ochanomizu.

Image
"Dad doesn't love me anymore!" :cry:

Image

Image
Atom tries to explain to the citizens what's happening to them...

Image
...but nobody wants to listen to him.

Image
:cry:

Atom all alone. I can very well relate to him here.

Image
There isn't much of energy left...

Image
"Huh? A kid's voice!" It's Tawashi-kun, crying for help.

Image

Image

Image
"There!"

Image
"Arigatou!!"

Image
I totally feel the same way as Tawashi here. All day long! :lol:

Image

Atom fighting with the police robots.

Image

Image
"Rats!!"

Image
"I'm out of energy!"

Image

Image
Atom helpless, unable to escape the exchange of his electronic brain.

Image
"What have you done to brother Atom?!"

Image
Takashi doesn't get affected by Pulse's hypnotising waves. It's either because of his hairstyle or for the fact that he's still a kid. I'm not sure here.

"Atom! Get yourself together!"

Image
"Doctor! Please don't exchange my electronic brain!"

Image

Image
"You'll pay for what you've done to brother Atom!!"

Image
"Wait! I'm not allowed to hurt humans!"

Image
Takashi has been jolted unconscious by Pulse's staff

Image
Pulse now realises what he's done.

Image
"Oh no! I did hurt a human child! It's unforgivable!!"

Image
Dr. Ochanomizu and Higeoyaji seeing Pulse in agony over his deed.

Image
The awareness of his wrongdoing was too much to bare for Pulse. With a huge blast he blew up. (can't help of thinking on Monty Python here :D )

Image
Instantly, Higeoyaji...

Image
...and Dr. Ochanomizu were freed from the hypnosis' spell.

Image
"What in the world has happened to us?!"

Image
"...and why is Atom lying on the ground overthere?!"

Image
The story concludes with all the four of them playing together. :lol:
"Bang!"

Image
"Aaaarrghh..!"

Image

Image

Image

Image
Still, Atom felt sorry for Pulse. After all, he was a robot too...
