The heart of this anime is spectacular, set in a future period of our globe, and examines a civilization coexisting peacefully with humanoid robots.
Pluto | Official Trailer
The new’ Pluto’ trailer jeopardizes the fragile balance between humans and robots. Set in a universe where humans and robots coexist, The new series trailer promises an emotionally packed story ahead of the series premiere on the streamer later this month.
The trailer begins with an introduction to a future where the balance for coexistence between humans and robots is fragile.
In the middle of this, Gesicht, a Europol robot investigator, is searching to find out who is responsible for killing Montblanc, a Swiss robot. In the trailer, Gesicht states, “Whether it’s a robot or a human, there’s a devil inside them.”
The trailer switches between touching and meaningful dialogue and high-octane action sequences, but its conversations hint at an emotional story. Pluto, a mighty robot, is mentioned multiple times; it’s worth watching to understand how it fits into Gesicht’s account.
The show’s themes, fittingly, address the often stormy connections between humans and machines. As a result, the damage watched throughout the trailer is mostly a consequence of humanity’s deeds.
Professor Ochanomizu embraces his robotic “son” Atom (made to replace his departed kid Tobio) in the trailer, revealing Pluto’s more positive interactions.
Urasawa touches on humanity’s tendency for hatred and prejudice and the tragedy of developing thinking robots to be both our heroes and our weapons simultaneously – something that anybody who grew up on Tezuka’s widely read and enormously influential Astro Boy will recognize.
