There we are,

floating peacefully in the sky.

Metro City, the jewel in the crown.

Beautiful, isn't it?

But how did we get here?

A century ago,

the founders of Metro City...

...seeing our world was changing...

...took Mount and lifted it out of the Earth

and into the sky.

...a floating paradise.

We don't really know

what happens in these days...

...on the strange and mysterious surface

we left behind.

But life in Metro City

is better than ever.

Thanks to our friends,

the Robots.

Robots do our shopping.

They cook for us.

They serve our meals.

They take good care of us.

They even do the really

important things like...

...reminding us to call Momma

on her birthday.

What else, raising our children,

building our buildings...

...taking care of our city...

...or making sure

we were all fit and healthy.

For these guys... no job is too big.

Or too small.

First, Robots do a all of things

that frankly,

We didn't just don't wanted

to do anymore.

Oh, no!

No worries, folks.

That street will get cleaned.

The best and brightest are then

get picked for the more exciting tasks.

This lucky guy is starting

his first day at his new job.

And it's all thanks to this man.

Dr. Tenma, head of the Ministry of Science

and father of Modern Robotics.

Thanks to him and

the incredible innovations...

Hey, Toby, isn't that your dad?

- It sure is.


Our friends the Robots helps us.

Thousands are created every day...

...and thousands are disposed of... the great and

never ending cycle that...

...substains life in our great city.

Thanks for everything, guys.

May you rust in peace!

Okay, students.

Ready for our pop quiz?


- No!


I'm so busted!

Yes, Toby?

Is there a problem?

- There's no problem.

I'm just finished and I'd like to leave.

- Finished?

The rocket science

wasn't excatly rocket science.

Well, I don't suppose there's much

point in you staying.

Good luck, guys.

Just like his father.

Hello, Master Toby!

Did you have a good day?

- The best, Orrin.

Thank you, Master Toby.

Very good throw.

Hello, son.

- Hello, sir.

How was school?

- Oh, great!

Mr. Pistachio dropped a

pop quiz on us but...

...I'm pretty sure,

I got a 100 %.

That's good, son.

Very good.

But I don't want you

to become complacent.

It's important to keep studying.

Onward and upward, Toby!

Sure, Dad.

I'm very sad, I'd take you that

symposium on quantum mechanics...

But I'm afraid, I'd have to take

a rain check again.

You... you promised!

I'm sorry, Toby,

but it's unavoidable.

President Stone's work for

the unveiling of the "Peacekeeper".

"The Peacekeeper"?

You gotta be kidding me!

- I never kid.

Goodbye, son.

"The Peacekeeper", huh?

Hey, Orrin, change of plan.

Take me to

the Ministry of Science.

I'm sorry,

Master Toby...

...but you father gave me

strict instructions to...

Stop it!

What are you doing back there?

Hey! Hey!

Next stop, Ministry of Science!

Are you ready to

blow me way today, Tenma?

To make my hairs stand up?

To knock my socks off?

Yes, yes...

Metaphorically speaking.

- Oh, that's the spirit.

Dr. Elefun is an esteem colleague

of mine, Mr. President.

He may be resistant to

having his discoveries used...

...for military purposes.

Oh, you leave Dr. Elefun to me.


Hold it!

- Hold it!

What are you doing here?

I gave Orrin

specific instructions to...

I wanted to see the demonstration.

You're always talking

about "The Peacemaker"...

Really, Toby?

Osamu Tezuka

Osamu Tezuka (Japanese: 手塚 治虫, born 手塚 治, Hepburn: Tezuka Osamu, (1928-11-03)3 November 1928 – 9 February 1989) was a Japanese manga artist, cartoonist, animator, and film producer. Born in Osaka Prefecture, his prolific output, pioneering techniques, and innovative redefinitions of genres earned him such titles as "the father of manga", "the godfather of manga" and "the god of manga." Additionally, he is often considered the Japanese equivalent to Walt Disney, who served as a major inspiration during Tezuka's formative years.Tezuka began what was known as the manga revolution in Japan with his New Treasure Island published in 1947. His legendary output would spawn some of the most influential, successful, and well received manga series including Astro Boy, Kimba the White Lion, Black Jack, and Phoenix, all of which won several awards. Tezuka died of stomach cancer in 1989. His death had an immediate impact on the Japanese public and other cartoonists. A museum was constructed in Takarazuka dedicated to his memory and life works, and Tezuka received many posthumous awards. Several animations were in production at the time of his death along with the final chapters of Phoenix, which were never released. more…
