    To be fair, I don’t recommend the 1963 Astroboy anime because the animation is awful. I simply can’t watch it. Also, the writing isn’t very good either. The manga is a masterpiece, the anime is clunky at best. The anime wants to hit all the key themes of the manga but 26 minutes doesn’t give it the time to develop the stories and characters as richly as the manga. So often when I’m watching the anime I’m thinking how much better the original manga story was. It hurts my soul to see Tezuka butcher is own writing so badly.
