Astro Boy A Japanese Citizen?

posted on by Isaac Alexander
Niiza City in Saitama prefecture will register "Tetsuwan Atom" as an actual resident of the city on April 7th, 2003. This is the date of his "birth" in the manga by Osamu Tezuka. Niiza City is going to prepare a special registration form with a printed picture of Atom's face. The address to be written in the form will have the address of the Tezuka Production Company: 4-4-14, Nobidome, Niiza-shi, and the "head of the household" is Professor Ochanomizu.
