Review of 'Astro Boy: Greatest Astro Adventures'

astro_boy_greatest_astro_adventures.jpg This DVD of a few of the best Astro Boy, the boy robot hero, episodes ever: “Birth of Astro”, “Robio and Robiette”, “Liar Robot”, “Greatest Robot in the World Part 1”, “Uran's Twin”, “The Robots Nobody Wanted “and “Astro's First Love.” This collection certainly brought back memories to me from when I watched these stories as a child and this certainly is an animation intended for children. I was a bit disappointed that they did not include the conclusion of “Greatest Robot in the World” but the inclusion of “Birth of Astro” and “Astro's First Love” was pretty much a given. Very nostalgic but not something for someone who has never watched Astro Boy before. Here's hoping a more complete collection is released in the future.
