Astro Boy Book One and Two Volume Edition Review

Astro Boy 1

Astro Boy is written and illustrated by Osamu Tezuka. And published by Kobunsha and Kodansha in Japan. And published in English by Madman Entertainment and Dark Horse Comics.

Astro Boy is a manga series that revolves around a robot built by Dr. Tenma and modeled after his sadly deceased son. At first Tenma is happy with Astro, but for some reason soon comes to despise him. After Tenma kicks him out, and a few other events occur that I won’t mention, Astro goes on fantastic adventures and saves the day on more than one occasion. This volume edition contains several of Tezuka’s original illustrations.

The art was exactly as I expected it to be, amazing. There is a reason why Tezuka’s known as the godfather of manga. However, I did notice a couple of mistakes. For example, sometimes Astro would have his boots, but in the next panel they would disappear. This wasn’t really a problem for me, though, it was just something I noticed.

The storyline was also just as amazing as I expected. There were certain points of the stories that I found particularly creative. For example, there was a torture device in one story that looked like a cube and was filled with balls of polyester. The bad guys would put someone in it and fill the cube with water, thus expanding the balls of polyester and crushing the victim. But, as stated by the bad guys, it’s okay because it’s just a comic strip.

Anyway, I definitely recommend¬†Astro Boy if you haven’t already checked it out. It is really worth the read. And hopefully I’ll get better at reviewing comic books and manga in the future so I’ll have more to say about them.


A List of My Youtube Videos

Alright, so here’s a list of all of my Youtube videos that I have at the moment. Instead of ordering them in the order that I uploaded them, however, I’m going to order them based on their number of views. Anyway, let’s get to the list!

9. Magi – Rubik’s Cube (GIF Challenge)


This is my most recently uploaded video. Both views are from me, one was to make sure the video still looked good after being uploaded, and the other was to get the URL to embed it into this post.

8. Laughing


For whatever reasons this video just hasn’t generated a lot of views. I’m assuming that it’s probably because of my uninformative title.

7. Astro Sound the Bugle Now


This was the first AMV I ever made. Which is why you can see Hypercam pop up at the bottom sometimes.

6. Kingdom Hearts – Silly Shoes


This was a practice video for Windows Live Movie Maker. I had never used Windows Live Movie Maker to make an AMV before, so I decided to make this video to test it out.

5. Yami is Sorry

This was the first time I ever cut a song.

4. The Pharoh and Yugi Sing the Annoying Song


This was supposed to be a ten minute challenge, but, unfortunately, it took too long for ten-minute long videos to save.

3. Yami’s Theme


This was a part for a Character Themes video I was working on. Unfortunately, I couldn’t think of themes for any of the other characters, so this was the only one I made. This was also the second AMV I ever made.

2. Cena Loves His Cereal


I still have no regrets.

1. Shadow and Maria Safe and Sound


This was the first video I posted to Youtube. It is also the AMV that I’m happiest with.

Well, that concludes this list! Please fell free to share any of the videos that you liked, it will really help my channel out.
