    I see that Astroboy the series is out. $50 CDN at BestBuy, 50 episodes. No Japanese soundtrack however!

    The box says it has 20 episodes or so never seen before - well, that doesn't sound reassuring - are there more episodes?

    And is the original Japanese version available? I have a feeling these are heavily edited episodes...

    I did see this series on TV as a kid - but I would like the original versions if they exist.

    I assume this version of Astroboy was given the Battle of the Planets treatment - story altered and edited for us dumb North Americans! :p

    Any comments on this release?

    Ok. So it is probably completely different eh? I saw it back in the very early 80's (1983?).

    Damn.

    There have been three different versions of Astro Boy throughout the years. The first came in the 60's, the next in the 80's (the one you likely remember) and then this newest incarnation from 2004.
