Pluto is it you?

Masami Yuuki wrote the highly recommendable combo of Ja Ja Uma Grooming UP! (8,5/10) and more importantly Kidou Keisatsu Patlabor (8,5/10), which have similar slice of life roots. Kasahara´s comparable RideBack (9/10) is a quality tale too and both creators need more international love. It thus should come as no surprise that i can recommend Atom - The Beginning to basically anyone as Osamu´s creation is hugely important to the medium and the series is an official prequel overseen by his son. The art and especially designs are great, the story is intriguing from the start, and all the famous characters are also fun and intriguing in these vastly younger forms.
The much darker re-imagining Pluto (10/10) lastly turned out to be a more similar tale than first expected, due to the increasing philosophical bend of this tale.
