The official website for Avex's ravex musical trio has begun streaming a 45-second promotional video for the upcoming Astro Boy (Tetsuwan Atom/Mighty Atom) anime short. An 18-minute Astro Boy anime special will ship with ravex's debut album, trax, at the end of April. Tezuka Production is collaborating on this anime based on the robot boy created by the studio's namesake, manga and anime pioneer Osamu Tezuka.
Set after the end of the original manga, this what-if "Return" story depicts what happens to the title character after his final act to save Earth. Black Jack, the Princess Knight, and other Tezuka characters will appear in this all-new short. This anime short is separate from IMAGI's computer-animated feature film, which will open in North America in October.
