“PLUTO” (2023) | Anime Series on Netflix: Beyond the legend of Osamu Tezuka

Pluto, the new series on Netflix, is an adaptation of the critically acclaimed manga of the same name by Naoki Urasawa and Takashi Nagasaki. The series is based on an arc in Osamu Tezuka‘s classic manga Astro Boy, but is a standalone story that can be enjoyed by viewers new to the franchise.

“Pluto” brings us back to the purest tradition of Japanese anime in the subgenre that perhaps has brought it more success: the futuristic dystopia.

Here we have a story that explores the coexistence between humans and robots, who start getting murdered.

Welcome to this dark world of detectives and robots, creators, and above all, many secrets to unveil.

Eight episodes to discover the universe of Naoki Urasawa and the already legendary Osamu Tezuka if you haven’t already.

Welcome to the world of Astro Boy.


Pluto is set in a future where robots live and work alongside humans. The series follows Inspector Gesicht, a human police officer who is assigned to investigate the murders of seven of the world’s most advanced robots. As Gesicht investigates, he uncovers a conspiracy that threatens to destabilize the fragile peace between humans and robots.
