    By the same mastermind mangaka that brought us the marvels

    20th Century Boys
    Monster
    Happy!
    Master Keaton

    The one and only, Naoki Urasawa.

    This manga is a collab with the legendary Osamu Tezuka for his manga "astro Boy". I know it might sound strange at first, for the simple fact that the god of manga and anime passed away more than ten years ago. However, Urasawa is offering a remake for the story, from the eyes of the villian, PLUTO.

    A breif synposis:-

    Inspector Gesicht d' Europol inquires into a series of murder made on robots and personalities well-known for their participation in the installation of the laws of equality and freedom of the robots. But the robots disappeared are not any, in fact the robots seven more powerful was ever built and all had become benefactors of humanity by putting a term at a conflict in the Central Asia. Its way will carry out it until Atom (Astro) the little boy robot who also made him party of these seven famous robots.

    It's being scanlated by my fav group, mangascreener , you can get it via their IRC channel, located at
    #mangascreener on irc.highwah.net

    I cant use IRC, since the computers in univeristy do not allow me to install any programs, so for those with IRC, if you can provide us with the scanlated chapters, it would be greatly apperciated ^.^

    I'll just edit this post as I upload more. I'm watching episodes of HnG while it uploads, so there may be a bit of a wait.

    Pluto- Chapter 01

    Edit: Bad timing I guess, looks like the site is down at the moment :p

    Anything by [Blocked Domain] is brilliant, but my god!!!! spoiler's sister is in it too? This is incredible! You have no idea how ridiclously joyful I am right now! Urasawa is a genius, you cannot argue that fact. Who else would've been able to create such a thing: creating his own unique plotline yet sticking to the origins if the masterpiece. God I love that man.

    EDIT;
    chapter 12, I feel teary now, the figth between
    Spoiler:
    Pluto and Brando[/spoiler was so moving, when Brando was sendign the memories of his family...he was sad that wont see them again :( he couldnt think clearly, the very last moment of the existance of his robotic mind was his family, his robotic family


    Im depressed now.

    TELL ME ABOUT IT!!!

    Spoiler:
    A KKK clan against robots? and Gesicht kiled the man's brother? This is probabily the reason why the police chief tampered with his memories three years ago. This leads to the theory that ALL 7 robots who were involved in the training and the war have killed before. The greatest scientific creations going against the no.1 rule in robotics...
    this is so damn good! and its only the first 2 volumes! I bow to Urasawa. All other mangakas are garbage compared to him

    I know. He manages to convey such powerful emotions in his work. I never feel this way when I read other mangas beside his.

    Dude you are talking to the music mod :p going offtopic and ranting about music is my trademark XD.

    I have to agree though, its one hell of an album, I heard it twice only. I intend to purchase it asap.

    but back to Pluto. How many volumes do you think it will be? Things are happenign at such a rapid pace. But knowing Urasawa it cant be less than 5 volumes (his shortest work was a 1 volume one-shot, it's name evades my memory atm)

    Also, what other titles have you read by Urasawa?

    I wondering.. if the series are suppose to be from the POV of Pluto, then why hasn't it started with Pluto? I understand that these chapters were suppose to be a re-introduction to the world of Atom and that it's setting up the points that will be revelant later in the series. But couldn't it have done the same with the POV of pluto as well?

    Or is that we'll find out that Pluto is actually the inspector.

    hmmm.

    Well thatis my fault actually. What I meant was the series will focus mostly on Pluto, not pluto's POV. But you never know, Urasawa is unconventinal, he might do that ;]

    Well just started the manga... already up to chapter 17. Guess I'll have to wait for a while till the next chapter.

    Quite an interesting manga.
    Spoiler:
    I like that the main character is a robot instead of a human. Not much of a spoiler...probably revealed in the 3rd page or something. The memory thing is interesting...though those KR clan members reminds me of a certain...'group'...kind of funny...
