About Astro Boy Mini Collection 1 DVD

Astro Boy Mini Collection 1 contains episodes 1-25 of the original 1963 anime directed by Osamu Tezuka.

In a future where science fiction is reality, Dr. Boynton creates a super-robot in his deceased son's image. Named Astro Boy, the robot can swim oceans, leap over mountains and even fly into space - but he can't replace the doctor's son. Abandoned and disowned, soon Astro Boy is befriended by Dr. Packadermus J. Elefun of the Institute of Science, and together, they embark upon an amazing adventure. With super strength, rocket-powered flight, a selfless heart and a kind demeanor, Astro Boy fights a never-ending crusade against the forces of evil!

Anime's Cornerstone

by -

If this series seems primitive, unpolished, and too juvenile for you, remember that every TV anime series springs from Astro Boy's vapor trail. Every anime fan should watch at least some of Ozamu Tezuka's seminal series. Have fun tracing the earliest usage of anime tropes (like the sparklies' that shine around a beautiful Sphinx) and characters(like Jake Speed, a Speed Racer prototype).
Historical importance aside, it's fun to watch, and the English dub cast (in the style of Jay Ward's 'Rocky and Bullwinkle') pepper the dialogue with hilarious word-play and characterizations, making it fun for all-ages.
Whatever it is you like about anime, you will see it reflected in this show---check it out!
