I recently saw the Astro Boy movie and decided to watch the series, which I saw growing up as a kid in the 80's. I'm a bit disappointed. This seems to be a newer version of the series...

Don't bother watching this if you treasured the wonderful original Astroboy animations. This new Astroboy does not have the same charm or other lovable supporting characters. It is mainly about flashy Pokemon style effects and didn't need to be made.
