It has been announced at the annual Annecy international Animation Film Festival that Naoki Urasawa’s manga Pluto will be turned into an anime.
On the French Twitter account of the online streaming service page Crunchyroll they uploaded the poster for the anime.
The poster is very simple and shows the faces of Atom, Uran and the main character, Gesicht. And at the very bottom we can see the logo of Genco, who are known for producing In This Corner of the World (Kono Sekai no Katasumi ni).
Famous Manga Pluto Will Get an Anime
Pluto is a manga drawn by Naoki Urasawa (Master Keaton, 20th Century Boys) and was serialized between 2003-2009 in Big Comic Original.
In Osamu Tezuka’s Astro Boy, there was a certain chapter called ‘Chijou Saidai no Robot’ (The Biggest Robot on Earth). Pluto is based on that story, taking a daring step by switching the main character from Atom to the robot detective Gesicht.
In 2010 there were rumors that Chris Meledandri (Ice Age, Despicable Me) would produce a live action version of Pluto, but nothing followed the rumors.
For the anime adaptation of Pluto, the broadcasting time and other details are still unknown. As the Annecy Film Festival is still going on, maybe there will be more news regarding Pluto coming from there? We only know that we will be looking forward to more information!
