'Astro' set for October release

The feature version of "Astro Boy" is officially back on track for an Oct. 23 release after producer Imagi Entertainment announced it's completed a $25 million financing plan.

Imagi, which temporarily suspended "Astro Boy" production last month, said late Tuesday that the funding means it will also continue active development of the "Gatchaman" and "Tusker" projects.

The company's U.S. prexy, Erin Corbett, told Daily Variety that the company's has already called back all but 23 of its staffers to complete "Astro Boy." About 100 of Imagi's 120 staffers - most of them in Sherman Oaks -- were furloughed last month.

"We are thrilled by the incredible response to 'Astro Boy's' early film footage and stills," Corbett said.

The financing plan for Hong Kong-based Imagi includes raising operating capital both from new investors and from existing shareholders.

Imagi also disclosed that Francis Kao has resigned as chairman to devote more time to his role as chief creative officer. Kao's being succeeded by Richard Witts, who has over 35 years of experience in Asia including management posts with the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, Schroder Securities, United Mok Ying Kie and CLSA.

ISHInoMORI CHARACTERS

I really like the design of these "ISHInoMORI CHARACTERS", the 2d illustration is ok, but the the real figure is very cute. There are tons of cute versions of Kamen Rider, i think this set designed by Panson Works is the best.

Astro Boy anime in the List of Top 100 Animated Series all the Time

Astro Boy is NO.86 in the list of IGN's Top 100 Animated Series of all time.

Though its popularity in Western cultures has waned over the past couple decades, Astro Boy is a cultural icon in Japan. Based on a story by Osamu Tezuka (a.k.a the god of manga), the animated series -- arguably the first "popular" anime TV series -- told the story of Astro, a powerful robot boy created by the head of the Ministry of Science to replace the son he lost in a tragic car accident. Each episode involved Astro using his robot powers to save the day.

The original show aired in black and white, and when American network execs brought it stateside, it became the first anime to be broadcast outside Japan. A 2003 remake of the TV series didn't make waves in the U.S., but the original 1963 series is still considered to be one of the most important forces in comics, animation, and even videogames. The uber-popular Mega Man/Rockman franchise was heavily influenced by Astro Boy's story and character designs.

In 2009, Imagi studios will release a new, "Americanized," CGI incarnation of Astro Boy in a feature film. Fans everywhere are praying that it will do justice to the original, and introduce the beloved franchise to a new generation.


Nebs66 extraxted all anime titles from the list in his blog:
95. FullMetal Alchemist
90. Afro Samurai
86. Astro Boy

78. DragonBall Z

76. Voltron: Defenders of the Universe

73. Mobile Suit Gundam Wing 70. Pokemon
51. Death Note
44. Battle of the Planets
38. Naruto 34. Robotech 29. Speed Racer (1967)
23. Transformers
14. Cowboy Bebop

10. Neon Genesis Evangelion
