Anime Lunch - Episode 1 - Astro Boy (1963)

Welcome to Anime Lunch, an exploration and celebration of 20th century Japanese animation – and in our inaugural show we’re going back to where it all began for the US – Astro Boy!

Based on the 1950s manga “Mighty Atom” by the legendary Osamu Tezuka, the animated show first premiered on Fuji TV on New Year’s Day, 1963 and is considered by many as the first popular series to embody the aesthetic that would soon become familiar worldwide as anime.
