Pluto Anime

Pluto is a manga created by Urasawa and producer Takashi Nagasaki, offering a captivating reimagining of Osamu Tezuka’s renowned work, Astro Boy. Serialized in Shogakukan’s Big Comic Original magazine from 2003 to 2009, this seinen drama spans eight compelling volumes. Translated and published in 20 countries, including France and the United States, Viz Media presents a gripping narrative:

In a distant future, where humanoid robots indistinguishable from humans exist, a mysterious force threatens to annihilate the world’s seven great robots. Assigned to unravel these enigmatic robot serial murders, Gesicht, Europol’s esteemed detective, faces a startling revelation – he is among the seven targets.

Back in 2010, Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment secured the film rights from Tezuka Productions, envisioning a live-action/CG hybrid adaptation of Pluto. The forthcoming anime adaptation will comprise eight meticulously crafted 60-minute episodes. Sources: Animation Business Journal (Tadashi Sudo), Netflix Japan’s Twitter account.
