Netflix's Pluto Announces Episode Count


The highly anticipated anime adaptation of Pluto, based on the acclaimed manga by Naoki Urasawa, is scheduled to premiere on Netflix on October 26th this year. This long-awaited series brings to life a dark reimagining of Astro Boy, making it a significant event for fans of Urasawa's work. As viewers eagerly await the arrival of this technological dystopia on the small screen, an episode count has been revealed to give them an idea of the immersive journey that awaits.

The anime adaptation of Pluto is a collaboration between Studio Genco, Tezuka Productions, and Studio M2. This partnership marks a significant acquisition for Netflix, as the streaming service continues to expand its repertoire of exclusive anime content. While Urasawa's Monster has already received a beloved anime adaptation, there are still many of his works that have yet to be brought to life on screen.

Pluto's Episode Count

Netflix Japan has officially confirmed that the anime series adaptation of Pluto will consist of eight episodes, with each episode spanning approximately sixty minutes. Although it is not officially stated, this episode count suggests that the series might encompass the entirety of the source material.

As the anime adaptation of Pluto draws near, Naoki Urasawa, the creator of the original manga, shared his thoughts on the upcoming television series. Urasawa expressed his admiration for the team taking on the challenge of bringing Pluto to life in anime form, commending their courage. He eagerly anticipates the debut of this new series, hoping that it will captivate viewers and resonate with their hearts. Urasawa also emphasized the significance of Osamu Tezuka's message, expressing his desire for it to reach a global audience more than ever before.

If you haven't had the chance to explore the original Pluto manga, which was first released in 2003 and concluded in 2009, here is the official description of this dark iteration of Astro Boy: "In an ideal world where man and robots coexist, someone or something has destroyed the powerful Swiss robot Mont Blanc. Elsewhere a key figure in a robot rights group is murdered. The two incidents appear to be unrelated...except for one very conspicuous clue – the bodies of both victims have been fashioned into some sort of bizarre collage complete with makeshift horns placed by the victims' heads. Interpol assigns robot detective Gesicht to this most strange and complex case – and he eventually discovers that he too, as one of the seven great robots of the world, is one of the targets."
