“Pluto: Urasawa x Tezuka, Volume 006” by Naoki Urasawa and Takashi Nagasaki is the sixth book in an eight-book science fiction manga series Pluto. The whole series is based on “The Greatest Robot on Earth,” the most popular story arc in Astro Boy series written by a legendary manga master Osamu Tezuka.

Five out of the seven great robots of the world are destroyed, but the mysterious villain and his motive are still unknown. Despite his compromised physical condition and shaken me

End begins to draw near with "Pluto," and the sixth volume of the total eight reflects that. There is a sense of imminent finality present, and all the numerous divergent plot lines begin to merge and move forward at an escalating speed. The roller coaster ride has started, but the quiet, lyrical and deeply observant approach hasn't gone anywhere.
3.5 stars: As the hunt for the serial murderer of the greatest robots of the world continues, Europol's top robot detective Gesicht races around the globe to catch the criminal. Parallel to his search for the relentless robot killer and its creator, Gesicht searches for the truth about his past and arrives at a horrifying realization about himself that leads into the the climax for this volume. After all, he too, as one of the seven greatest robots in the world, is a target. The mysterious figur ...more

Naoki Urasawa continues to create an amazing epic from a beloved Mighty Atom (aka Astro Boy) story, as Volume Six hits a climax of sorts, revealing the identity of the villain and culminating in a finale that, until I checked online to see that at least two more volumes were due to be released, seemed like it might have been the end of the series. I'm relieved to see that there's more, as "Pluto" has been fantastic.

Urasawa is, without a doubt in my mind, the finest comic book creator working tod

Osamu Tezuka is a genius. Naoki Urasawa is a genius. Pluto is a child of the marriage of their geniuses . . . you really should read it. That is all you need to know.


I see you're obstinate and thus must have your review, so here it goes.

This book takes its premise from THE most famous story in the Tetsuwan Atom pantheon. Astroboy for you non-manga readers. While the original source material was intended for Japanese Children in the 1950's, I make the distinction clear for two reasons
Oh so he was Astro Boy. Yes it took me until now to realize it. Interesting. Maybe that explains how little I understand overall?
But this was a good volume and once again took a nice satisfying step forward, overall-plot-wise.
via NYPL - terrific stuff.
This volume was just incredible. Every time I think I'm getting to the point I see what's coming, or that I just can't care about these characters and be hurt by what happens to them anymore, something else happens and it breaks my heart a little bit more, but in the best way.

If you are of a mind to give manga a chance, you owe it to yourself to try this. Seriously.
I felt as though this volume hit the right storytelling notes through out, and was well balanced. Old questions answered, new questions asked, and the appropriate shocks and emotional pulls littered through out.

Though you feel like you're getting closer to some real answers, you still feel like you're wading through a deep mist.
A great series. Read the whole book, in a couple of days. It is a reworking of the core concepts of Astro Boy, but with darker, grittier and more philosophical. It questions what it means to be human, and what it means for robots to be "perfect". The pacing is great, the characters likeable, and the art amazing. A great read.
Tomo centrado casi por completo a la investigación de Gesicht, y por lo tanto, más tranquilo en casi todo su transcurrir. Y aunque simplemente sea la investigación, sigue enganchando sin remedio, y sigue mostrando imágenes desoladoras de este futuro distópico pasado en el mundo creado por Osamu Tezuka en Astroboy.
The grand finale to this 'reimagining' of Astro boy is a mix of political thriller and big summer action movie.

Along with all the robot fights and strong political allegory, is a decent, likable cast and a strong emotional core.

A brilliant 'remake' that would make a great movie.
Joo todos mueren :(
I read the forth volume of Pluto ages ago but I could not find the fifth. I decided to read this volume because I was too curious to wait further and I will read the following volumes pretty soon.

This is a very good series.
Outstanding. Pluto just keeps getting better. I tore through the last few volumes yesterday (Yay being back in the US). I am amazed how Urasawa continues to top himself, especially considering he started at such a high level.

While reading this volume I was really trying to figure out how this series could go on for two more volumes... everything seemed to be all wrapped up in a neat little package.. but by the end I was like "oh shit!"
Brought this down some because I couldn't help the feeling that the revelations were sort of falling into Gesicht's lap, and the dialogue is a bit clunkier than the previous volumes.
sweet pea
great series. in this volume Gesicht starts to put the pieces together. we learn a lot, but still don't have the final picture. love how this series slowly reveals the plot points.
So, I know there are more volumes to go, but seriously, there aren't many characters left! I'm still fascinated by this series, probably because I'm not sure where it's headed.

This volume broke my heart a little. And I loved it even more for that.
Chris Haley
Each volume of this book continues to amaze me. The only downside to this volume was that it was so engrossing I felt like it only took a few minutes read.
Things move along nicely in this one. I enjoyed some of the new revelations about Pluto. I have no idea where this story is going to go next.
