Huh, this could be really interesting. I'm always interested in prequels, because they have the luxury of telling a story that doesn't need to have a happy ending. I find it opens up interesting possibilities and allows the creators to take greater creative risks. I'll be keeping an eye on this one.

I know right!

One of - if not the greatest - manga of all time, and the anime could be one of the greatest anime shows ever made.

This will be a must watch. Here is my MU review of the manga, to gain a bit of perspective:

Pluto is it you? (8,5/10)
Masami Yuuki wrote the highly recommendable combo of Ja Ja Uma Grooming UP! (8,5/10) and more importantly Kidou Keisatsu Patlabor (8,5/10), which have similar slice of life roots. Kasahara´s comparable RideBack (9/10) is a quality tale too and both creators need more international love. It thus should come as no surprise that i can recommend Atom - The Beginning to basically anyone as Osamu´s creation is hugely important to the medium and the series is an official prequel overseen by his son. The art and especially designs are great, the story is intriguing from the start and all the famous characters are also fun and intriguing in these vastly younger forms. If you like the similar and much darker reimagining Pluto (10/10) that this origin tale is for you too even if the manga is only one volume "old" as of now. This is going to be a fun ride and i look forward to more, even if a translation of any kind has still to establish itself.

Can we get an actual Tezuka anime (TV series) again for once ... also would prefer not Astro Boy or Black jack ... There's so much other stuff they could take ...
