People and robots
A murder is committed in an orderly world where robots cannot kill people. The robotic Europol detective Gesicht takes on the case, but the mystery deepens when he finds no trace of a human at the scene of the crime. As he searches for the truth, Gesicht uncovers the most evil expression of hatred history has ever seen, one bent on destroying the world…
Astro Boy: The Greatest Robot on Earth won hearts and accolades around the world, including the prestigious Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize. A stage adaptation, which debuted in 2015 and returned by popular demand in 2018, toured Japan and Europe, further cementing Astro Boy’s cultural significance.
