One of the first anime series of all time, Astro Boy is built on a staple of Japanese storytelling: that an inanimate or artificial creature can earn a soul and become truly human through its connection to other human beings. In Astro Boy, a doctor who has lost his own son uses his genius as well as his grief to create a robot boy named Astro. As a robot, Astro is capable of incredible physical feats - but he is also capable of inner strength and growth, as his wild adventures and noble quests will soon prove. With the help of his little dog, Jump, Astro escapes from a robot circus, rescues people in need, and even plays with a robot sister named Uran. ~ Cammila Albertson, Rovi.
