We’ve got a special treat for you all today. We’re teaming up with You’re Welcome Scans (go check out their website if you haven’t already) to bring you a new series which tells the origin story of Tetsuwan Atom (Known to English-speaking territories as Astro Boy).
The series is being adapted from a concept originally laid-out by Osamu Tezuka, himself. The writing team is headed up by Masami Yuki, who is known for his work on Mobile Police Patlabor, as well as Tetsuwan Birdy (“Birdy the Mighty” in English). Assisting him is Makoto Tezuka (Osamu Tezuka’s son), who is one of the owners of Tezuka Productions and has had a hand in releasing much of his father’s unreleased work, as well as serving as director on anime adaptations of many of his father’s series.
Art is being handled by Tetsuro Kasahara, who is best known for the manga series RideBack, and is currently working as the artist on Full Metal Panic! 0.
Anyway, that’s enough out of me. You can find the download link below, hope you all enjoy!
