Another Urasawa masterpiece!

Honestly one of the most perfect mangas ever made. The theme, the characters, the epic ideas and the personal emotions -- it's brilliant. I mean, everyone knows that Urasawa-sensei's a genius, but this manga proves it.

I'll admit it... I'm one of those nerds that used to be addicted to Asimov when I was, like, twelve years old. I've grown up obsessed with robotics, and by the existential and moral questions raised by the Three Laws. To see Urasawa-sensei handle my favorite theme was like -- like -- man, I can't even express it! So wonderful. smile

The fact that the main character's a robot.... is beyond perfect. Seriously. I'd frame every page of this manga and hang it on my walls, if my apartment weren't so small!

This is manga is sooooooo good. I will never understand why some titles get licensed and others don't. This is would be so popular in the US.

alright, so I wasnt going into it with high expectations. but I was proven wrong. manga is anything but bad. the story, the art, emotions portrayed, incredible detail of human psyche.. The questions that rise. Starting to wonder about very core of humanity itself, what makes a human being human. recommended.

This is an excellent manga, don't get me wrong. But I'm kind of growing tired of Urasawa's manga. In seinen, it is after all very mainstream.
His writing is top notch (as long as he knows when to call it quits), but sort of lacking edgyness. Of course, that isn't a "must" for everyone; but because of that I can't call his stuff an absolute favorite of mine.
Mind you, this is really only nitpicking. Pluto is right up there with Monster and 20th Century Boys.

Urasawa never fails. He's put an original and entertaining spin on the Greatest Robot arc of Astro Boy. Sheer brilliance.
