It had been years since I saw the 80's Astro Boy. Old shonen seemed to be 90% emotional storytelling and 10% badass fights.

Tezuka was a master, you cant just mass produce his work.

They were always bros, and they always had different perspectives on the future of robots.

The New anime should explain how Dr. Tenma hooked up with his wife Hoshie (astro boys "mother")
>>
>>156063804
They were never friends they just worked together for a little while.
This new anime is nothing but fanfiction

Animation for the 80's version is impressive as shit, they really did a terrific job.
>>
What should I watch first, the original black and white version or the color remake?

Nope.

Osamu Tezuka died over 25 years ago, so anything building on his universe is hard to define.

This is like post-Roddenberry Star Trek. He died but his fictional universe and characters lived on in both sequels and prequels.

Tezuka was flexible with the use of his characters and admitted the animated remakes were better than his original manga (his original Dr. Tenma was a horrible man and he liked the 1980 version best).
>>
>>156064223

1980 version is my favorite. It was a reboot of the franchise endorsed by the original author. Watch it for the awesome 80s anime shading, if for no other reason.
>>
>>156061578
I've only watched 2003 version. Is the old one better?
>>
My favorite robot in the 1980 series was Gerhardt the robot police detective. His fight with the "robot serial killer" was fun.

Reminds me of Nick Valentine from fallout 4.

The bugs bunny attack. Good way to get underneath a force field.

>Splits him in half by pulling his horns appart

Wha?
>>
>>156066013
Maybe the electricity made him magnetic and he couldn't let go?
>>
>>156066013

It was silly, but up to that point every other robot who touched those horns was obliterated instantly. They wanted to give kids watching the false hope that the goodguy would win at last.

Gerhardt suddenly being torn in half was their hopes and dreams being dashed.
>>
>>156065193
That must have been the version I watched as a kid

Swimming through dirt is an old astroboy tradition.
>>
The 1980 version's quality was high at times and low at times, but you could really tell when the animators gave a fuck for a particular sequence.
>>
Bakabt is offline down right now, any link to torrents of the 1980 version which aren't the reencode version from nyaa?

How was the 2003 Astro Boy series?

Astro Boy: in the time it took you to post that, you could have simply googled "astro boy gba", it's a great game.

The goddamn Treasure one!

After beating it on hard mode, I swore to never challenge it ever again.
>>
>>156061578
Well, it is Tezuka's. Like Black Jack, "Feels, The Manga"
>>
>>156069881

I think thats just how it was back then. Manga authors and the audience were more interested in why they were fighting, the badguys inner conflict and tragic past, etc. Side stories were more often tragic than fun.

The hero failing to save someone was also a big thing back then. What we call "forced drama" these days was just standard shonen plot progression.

Despite that over half the episode was still slapstick comedy. Like warner brothers bugsbunny antics.
>>
>>156061578
If you didn't know, that show has the same director as Legend of the Galactic Heroes, Macross, and Space Battleship Yamato.
Noburo Ishiguro is fucking great at sci-fi.
>>
Nosegrab was cute
>>
>>156077315

I am hoping this new show will deliver what robotics note failed at.
>>
>>156079533
Which was what?
>>
>>156064223
80s and 2003 are the good ones, very different in tone.
>>
>>156065587
Yo is this what inspired that part of Pluto?
>>
So Should I watch this prequal first and then the 1980 remake? Or is their a better order
>>
>>156080575
Pluto is based on that arc as a whole
>>
>>156080407
>Which was what?

Not be a clusterfuck like chaos:head.
>>
>>156080685
Prequel first.
