Atom: The Beginning...? a prequel to AstroBoy... I recently saw about 15 minutes of a recent film by that name on tv... kid's thing, though there was an undercurrent of rather 'adult' situations.. not that it was really dealt with, but mostly used as a backdrop for further actions to make the 'boy' fight the other robots... reminded me of Pinocchio.... which also could be made rather 'dark', depending upon the targeted audience. I was wondering what audience this 'seinen' project is really targeting.
for me it starts ok but, i would prefer the dark reboot Pluto animated instead -_-
