Astro Boy

As I was passing through Takadanobaba station today on the way to work, I was very pleasantly surprised to hear that they had changed the music that usually plays when a train is about to leave to the theme song of Astro Boy. For those who don’t know, according to the original storyline Astro Boy was “born” April 7th 2003 in Takadanobaba. They will also be launching a new animated series on that date. They showed a preview of the pilot on January 1st, and it was quite good.
