Astroboy Coming to a Theater near our Japanese correspondents!


Aya Ueto, Koji Yakusho attend world premiere of ‘Astro Boy’ in Tokyo

Ueto said: “It’s a sad story but an excellent movie. I did my best so as to not upset all the Astro Boy fans out there.”

Ray’s Take: I vaguely remember the manga and the old anime. Direct and appealing mostly for kids because it didn’t present any non-sensible twists but shows issues without sugar-coating it. Too many of today’s anime have to sugar coat hard to watch issues with fan service, moe, and other stuff.

I'm a hardcore Anime Fan and I'm proud of it. I know so many things and I've acquired so much knowledge you wouldn't believe. But my love is anime. I've been drifting in this world for so long that I don't even know what an anchor means. I've seen so many shows that I've lost count. The only thing I'm sure of myself is that I care for the lowly and disenfranchised. I hate the rich and powerful and I love what I do, or what I can do. I like anime and I don't mind watching different types of shows. I have experience in different types of Japanese animation. I would be called an "expert" in a bizzaro world. One day, I'd like to start a revolution. I love the US, pizza, beer, sashimi, Chinese food, and steak. But I love freshly baked bread more than a well-aged steak. In reality, if I were born Japanese I'd be a real, hardcore Otaku. I love to love and I can hate strongly. I'm passionate in nature and I don't mind shedding tears.

  1. It was Tezuka’s commercial title (practically the ‘mickey mouse’ of Japan almost but not really) but it was what cemented many of the kind to come. It was also fairly dark considering.
    Tezuka keeps it real! …and batshit insane!

    1. @ smashingtofu – bat shit crazy, eh? Maybe I need to find the old stuff sometime and watch it! I vaguely remember the new version isn’t crazy much.
