The official anime adaptation of PLUTO manga series is all set to release on Netflix on October 26.
The final official trailer of the anime series dropped yesterday (October 3) on Netflix’s YouTube channel and the visual looks awesome.
The anime series will have eight episodes, each 60 minutes long, and covering the story of eight volumes of the original manga series.
PLUTO is a manga series written and illustrated by Naoki Urasawa. It’s actually a reimagining of a story from the classic Astro Boy by Osamu Tezuka (also known as Tetsuwan Atom in Japan). PLUTO takes a darker and more mature approach to the source material.
The story is set in a future where robots and humans coexist. It follows Gesicht, a robot detective, as he investigates a series of murders of prominent robots. These murders are committed by a mysterious and powerful figure known as Pluto. As Gesicht dives deeper into the case, he uncovers complex themes of identity, morality, and the nature of humanity.
PLUTO is known for its deep and thought-provoking storytelling and complex characters. The story is super deep and makes you think about big questions like “What does it mean to be alive?” and “How do we define our humanity?”. It explores the blurred lines between humans and robots.
