Product Overview

Get ready for the brand new adventures of Astro Boy in this new, 21st-century version of Tezuka Osamu's innovative series. Astro Boy is the atomic-powered boy robot superhero who is a defender of humans and robots alike, an eco-warrior, a gladiator against evildoers and a protector to his robot sister Zoran.

Volume Five contains the final ten episodes plus the exclusive special feature, Remaking Of Astro Boy. In this volume, Astro pays a visit to Princess Abby in Mayura, befriends an undercover police robot, and travels to the new robot nation in the Arctic. When Astro is damaged trying to rescue the Blue Knight, only his original creator, the nefarious Dr. Tenma, can save him. But at what cost?

Editors Note
Note In the 1960s, Osamu Tezuka's ASTRO BOY became the first Japanese manga to be adapted into an anime series. This 2003 version offers a modern sci-fi update while still retaining the original's classic style (as well as incorporating some of the darker elements of the 1980s remake). The series follows a superhero robot named Astro, who fights crime in the "retro-futuristic" Metro City. Originally created by research scientist Dr. Tenma in the image of his deceased son, Astro was discarded with the scientist's realization that his son could never be replaced. Later discovered by the kindly Dr. O'Shay, Astro was revived and given a robot family, while O'Shay served as his mentor in the belief that humans and robots can and should get along with each other. Astro, however, is not like other robots--in addition to his superior strength and jet-rocket arms and legs, his brain is the most advanced in the world and is capable of feeling all human emotions. Astro is a reluctant superhero, fighting to keep the peace between robots and humans, and always coming to the city's rescue against all manner of nefarious evildoers. This collection presents the series' fifth volume of episodes.
