The adaptation of producer Takashi Nagasaki’s Pluto manga recreates the world depicted in Osamu Tezuka’s Astro Boy manga. The series ran in Shogakukan’s Big Comic Original magazine from 2003 to 2009, and it has eight compiled volumes.
In a distant future where sentient cyborgs replace humans, someone or something will destroy the world’s seven great robots. Europol’s top detective, Gesicht, is tasked with investigating these mysterious serial murders – the only notable thing being that he himself is one of the seven targets.
Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment purchased the film rights from Tezuka Productions for a planned live-action/computer graphics (CG) film about Pluto in 2010.
