90 Hours of Astro Boy to Celebrate Tezuka’s 90th on Nico Nico

astro boyStreaming platform Nico Nico has one heck of a way to commemorate what would have been God of Manga Osamu Tezuka’s 90th birthday. Starting Halloween night at 6:00pm Japan Time, viewers can look forward to a 90-hour marathon of classic Astro Boy anime.

A talking ATOM robot will be on hand to make comments throughout the marathon, and it will read audience comments aloud once the marathon ends. There will also be a special featuring interviews with guests connected to Tezuka’s works, as well as screenings of select Princess Knight, Dororo, Kimba the White Lion, and Black Jack episodes.
