Astro Boy -
The Complete Series (2003)

Anime DVD Review

No expense was spared to create this lavish 2003 'remake' of the classic series, the animation is breathtakingly lush and vivid — easily topping most big-budget features in terms of production value. Some episodes aired on cartoon Network, but this boxed-set contains the complete series of 50 episodes, including 29 never before seen in the US, as well as a featurette "The Making of Astro Boy".
Astro Boy!
Astro Boy is the classic anime story of a permanently youthful robot boy modeled after the son of a research scientist, Dr. Tenma. Originally intended to be kept a secret, the atomic-powered robot becomes a renowned superhero who fights for justice and peace for humans and robots alike.

Astro Boy, Vol. 1
Astro Boy, Vol. 1
Anime DVD Review

Here's where it all began. The anime "rosetta stone", the starting point for everything we know as anime and manga today is contained in this single seminal work. Created by "Manga-no-kamisama", Dr. Osamu Tezuka, this comic book lead to the animated series which became the worldwide phenomenon we all know and adore.

Astroboy: Old school Manga that started it all...Of interest to Tezuka fans is that the book is peppered with commentary by Tezuka (obviously, before his untimely death), as well as translation into English by Fred Schodt (author of Manga Manga! & Dreamland Japan). Young and old alike will enjoy this manga, with art and stories as only the God of Comics himself could tell them. Every anime collection should begin here, because this is where anime was born.

Astro Boy Lighter and ID Case
Anime Goodies Review

Anime.com does not advocate smoking, but this item is just so damn cool, we had to highlight it. Having a lighter, however, is always handy, as you can at least give a light to girl next to you at the dance club. And this piece is a great conversation starter that may get you her number...

Combined with the equally cool ID case (also made from stainless steel), this item is guaranteed to turn heads wherever you flash it. Celebrate your old-skool style with Astro Boy, *the* most recognizable animated character since Mickey Mouse.
