posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins

Rakuten's Infoseek news website and the Anime! Anime! news website both briefly published an article on Saturday that listed the staff and spring 2017 premiere on NHK for the anime adaptation of Tetsuro Kasahara's Atom The Beginning manga. While the URLs for both sites now link to a different news article, caches of both articles with the Atom The Beginning information are still available.

The manga's official website doesn't currently list any anime staff or premiere date.

The staff listed in the previous article was:

The cache of both websites also feature a key visual.

Kasahara (Ride Back) launched Atom The Beginning in Shogakukan's Monthly Hero's magazine in December 2014 as a prequel of Osamu Tezuka's Astro Boy manga. Tezuka's son Makoto Tezuka handles the editorial supervision of the manga, and the series is in collaboration with Tezuka Productions. Masami Yuuki (Patlabor the Mobile Police, Birdy the Mighty creator) is credited with "concept works" for the series. Shogakukan shipped the third compiled volume of the manga on June 3, and will ship the fourth volume on December 5.

The manga tells the story of what happens up until the birth of Astro Boy, and is considered an "episode zero" story.
