Astro Boy Episodes 23 & 24: The Greatest Robot In The World

Hello Dwellers and Welcome to The Basement! On this week's edition of 'Talking Anime', I'm going over two episodes of Astro Boy, the two-parter 'The Greatest Robot In The World', granted only one of those episodes was included on the Astro Boy: Greatest Astro Adventures DVD.


 Part 1

Part 2

  • It boggles the mind that part two is not on the Astro Boy: Greatest Astro Adventures DVD that I have, thankfully part two was posted on YouTube!
  • Uran stepping up and willing to go up against Bruton to protect Astro is pretty damn cool, and if you were to look at her and Astro, outside of the hair styles, they are pretty similar... if you ignore the fact Uran is shorter
  • Bruton's battles with the other robots are old gruesome with perfect use of 'making you imagine' whats happening, except in the case where he uses his horns to RIP THE ROBOT DETECTIVE IN HALF!
  • The moral of 'you can't win just by strength alone' is a good one... as a big part of it is Astro worrying how is he going to fight Bruton how has a millions horse power
  • The Sultan weeping over the fallen Bruton is interesting the more I think about it, that he took pride in how powerful the robot was, and it was his own ambition that lead to Bruton's destruction. (wish I talked about that in the video lol)
