The comic Astro Boy, which later gave rise to an animated television series with a particular graphic style and is now known by its massively famous term, anime, is well-known among anime veterans. Osamu Tezuka, the guy behind Astro Boy, is sometimes referred to as the “Father of Manga,” the “God of Manga,” and the “Godfather of Manga.”
It should thus come as no surprise that following his demise, restarting the series with a fresh offshoot was not an easy process. Naoki Urasawa, the guy behind the critically acclaimed anime Monster, was the one who effectively reimagined Astro Boy in a fresh narrative and environment.
Following in the footsteps of his biggest influence, Tezuka, and with the approval of his son, Macoto Tezka, Urasawa produced Pluto, an award-winning series that borrowed themes and characters from Astro Boy but told a wholly original tale in his own distinctive way.
The show will join other Netflix original anime like Scott Pilgrim and Gamera-Rebirth. Urasawa also had some help accomplishing the humongous task in the form of series co-author Takashi Nagasaki, who believes:
“Pluto inherits the philosophy of Tezuka and does not merely convey a message of anti-war, but reminds us that there is suffering on both sides… but still, the only remaining answer is peace.”
14 years after the manga series ended, Netflix is now offering an anime version of Pluto. Here is all the information you want on the impending Astro Boy spinoff, Pluto.
Does Pluto Have a Release Date?
Pluto’s premiere date hasn’t been formally announced by Netflix, but it has been confirmed that the Astro Boy spinoff will stream later this year in 2023. Pluto will have every episode accessible to watch on Netflix.
What is the Pluto Anime About?
Pluto by Urasawa and Nagasaki is based on the Astro Boy tale from 1964 known as “The Greatest Robot on Earth” by Tezuka. The manga series, which was promoted by the publication Big Comic Original, lasted from September 2003 to April 2009.
Pluto’s narrative is driven by post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and an anti-war message. It is set in a distant future when humans and sentient machines have developed a peaceful coexistence after many years of violent conflict.
Gesicht, a robot investigator for Europol from Germany and a veteran of war is looking into a string of killings of robots and people that have been happening all over the globe. The victims always have two protruding devices that resemble horns, which are the killer’s distinctive mark.
The evidence leads Gesicht to the conclusion that the murderer is a robot, making this the first instance in the last 8 years when a person has been slain by a robot. Gesicht himself, as well as anyone involved in upholding the International Robot Laws, which accord robots equal rights, are among the seven best robots that mankind has still created. Before time runs out, Gesicht must ascertain who is responsible for these horrible deaths.
“Famous for his military service in the 39th Asian War, the legendary Swiss robot Montblanc is violently murdered. Humans and robots around the world mourn for the beloved celebrity. Montblanc’s popularity only grew in the years following the war, thanks to his dedication to nature conservation and his loving personality.
Once a fellow war veteran, robotic Europol detective Gesicht is sent to investigate Montblanc’s tragic demise. In his pursuit, Gesicht uncovers evidence of a mysterious entity known only as “Pluto.” He also learns of a conspiratorial plot to dismantle the eight specialized robots from around the world who participated in the war. Racing against time to save those who still remain, Gesicht grapples with his memory, morality, and a world full of hate, desperately attempting to defend the fragile coexistence of man and machine.”
Does Pluto Have a Trailer?
Regrettably, no there isn’t a whole trailer for Pluto yet. Netflix did, however, provide a sneak preview of the new anime series, giving viewers a glance at its high-definition graphic style and a preview of some of the main characters.
Gesicht, a humanoid robot inspector who works for Europol, is seen in the teaser on a mission to find a misbehaving robot. His research takes him to the silo home of a veiled robot constructed entirely of nano-robots in the form of insects, which Gesicht expertly repels with minimal difficulty before continuing on with his investigation.
The major antagonist of the series and the show’s namesake, Pluto, first appears at the end of the cave in the form of a gigantic, hulking creature with horns. We also see a peek at the protagonist Astro Boy, or Atom, and his robot sister Uran as the teaser comes to an end.

Will Pluto Have a Second Season?
The Pluto manga by Naoki Urasawa was published in Shogakukan’s Seinen manga magazine Big Comic Original from September 2003 to April 2009. It has 65 action-packed acts, some of which are fairly long. Such a lengthy plot would make it impossible to include all 65 acts into a single season.
Therefore, it is quite probable that Pluto’s anime adaptation on Netflix will have more than one season, but whether or not it does so depends on how well the first season does.
