Manga ends current arc; returns with new arc in fall
The 100th chapter of Tetsuro Kasahara‘s Atom The Beginning manga revealed last Friday that the manga will go on hiatus until fall, when the manga will enter its new “Tobio Arc.” The 100th chapter ended the manga’s current arc.
Atom The Beginning‘s story takes place in Japan after a great calamity. There were two geniuses who dreamed of the future. One was Umatarō Tenma. The other was Hiroshi Ochanomizu. The two labored day and night in robot research — Tenma to create a “god,” and Ochanomizu to create a “friend.” Thus a robot, A106, was born from their collaborative friendship. Would A106 really become a god, or a friend? The manga and anime tell a prequel story leading up to the birth of Astro Boy.
