The Interview of Dr. Hiroshi Ishiguro (石黒浩), a robot scientist

“It is interesting that the story is more realistic than the original one. Atom has a self. This is a point to think deeply as a robot scientist. Especially Atom is drawn as a strong robot and he is perplexed by the fact of his strength for he is a kind personality. Is it possible to balance the unrivaled strength and a kind personality? If it possible, what is the reason? So this anime is more interesting than the original as it make me think about such a point.”
