>>3441719>Urasawa is a bit hackneyed when it comes to pathos
Yeah, it became quite notorious when Gesicht was killed all of sudden (and by the orphan robot who came out of nowhere no less). Still, it was an enjoyable read. Someone is storytiming the manga on /a/ (is on the 4th volume), so if anyone is interested on it this is a good time to read it and discuss it with other people.>The original manga is decently dark already
Is it? I have to confess I don't know a thing about Atom/Astroboy and always thought it was some kiddy series.>I was ready to quit reading when the orphanage was under threat, believing all the kids would die, thankfully at least this didn't happen.
Funnily enough, I always knew the orphans (outside of the one who is kidnapped) wouldn't die, because Pluto always avoided killing people outside of his target list. He didn't attack Brando's family or North #2's master, and even when he went mad as a robo-hobo he didn't attack Uran.
