    1. WHAT IS IT ABOUT?“Pluto: Urasawa x Tezuka, Volume 002” by Naoki Urasawa and Takashi Nagasaki is the second book in an eight-book science fiction manga series Pluto. The whole series is based on “The Greatest Robot on Earth,” the most popular story arc in Astro Boy series by a legendary manga master Osamu Tezuka.After realizing that the mysterious killer is after the seven great robots of the world, detective Gesicht sets on a mission to warn each of the targets personally. When Gesicht m [...]

    2. Pluto remains one of the most interesting and well written series I've read in awhile. This volume decides to focus on more Robots. So we get a little bit into Hercules and Atom. Hercules is a fighter and Atom is a young boy looking robot and they begin to piece together the crimes that are happening to their friends along with detective Gesicht. However, when the creature/robot/monster is back and takes on another one of their companions things start to get darker for our heroes. Who is this th [...]

    3. Atom, or "Astroboy" as the West knows him, makes his first appearance at the end of volume one and propels this volume forward. Atom is given by Naoki Urasawa the appearance of a real boy who gets excited seeing the latest new, cool toy and likes ice cream like any other boy, but doesn't know why and shrugs it off like any other, to the amazement of Gesicht who knows Atom is the most advanced robot out there.Urasawa even takes Atom a little further, adding an underlying maturity and understandin [...]

    4. Any doubts I had after the first volume have been blown away. More info about the mystery, more heroic sacrifice, quality time with Atom (LOVE HIM), and a creepy teddy bear that I may have nightmares about tonight. Yay for manga that totally suck me in.

    5. omg wow! Naoki knows how to write the most amazingly interesting politically driven story plots. Its almost scary how hard this story hits home. It has so much in common with current world politics. This second book is just delving deeper and deeper into the story and the cliff hanger at the end of this book is cray! I love that we are introduced to new characters and just wehen things are being revealed we are given more questions. I for one am so glad I own the entire series because I have a f [...]

    6. This story has gotten better. Volume 2 allows us to get to know Atom a bit. He is far more than he appears, which is to say, he appears to be a little boy. He is also a robot, but he is so realistic that he often fools/confuses other robots. He has many of the same natural longings as any other kid. There is such a seem less, if not disconcerting blending of robot and human vharacternistics in this tale it is difficult for me to keep it straight, to remember who is real and who is not a real hum [...]

    7. Atom, a boy robot whose sophisticated AI programming seamlessly blurs the distinction between man and machine, starts his own investigation into the serial murders of the great robots of the world. When he discovers that the killer’s motives may be connected with the geopolitical events of the recent past, he realizes that the case is far larger than anyone could have ever imagined. Am I the only one that sometimes reads comics and is totally like, "I'm not really sure what's going on but I li [...]

    8. I'm completely caught up in this reimagining of the world of Astro Boy. I came to the series with only a slight knowledge of the source material, but that hasn't harmed my enjoyment of Pluto at all. I've started reading Astro Boy, too. If anything, it shows what an achievement Urasawa has made with his new take on the material.

    9. Rebooted Astro Boy (Atom) and Professor Ochanomizu gave me goosebumps. Brando was not very smart, if you ask me. We get a first, blurry look at Pluto. Something's the matter with Gesicht's memory.

    10. The series “Pluto” by Urasawa and Tezuka is a series (1-8) revolving around a mystery with robots. It is told in 3rd person as you can see other people's thoughts. The format of the book is like a Japanese manga in which you have to read the book from right to left. It takes place in the far future where Robots live in human society and have AI that meets or exceeds humans. AI also have basic rights and can get jobs, get married, and have children. They are originally used as weapons of mass [...]

    11. Me voy a leer ésta obra a razón de tomo diario, estoy convencido (aunque por aquí sólo vengan un par a la semana) y es que me está atrapando más de lo que lo hizo la primera vez que me la leí.Éste segundo tomo sigue girando en torno al misterioso enemigo que está acabando con los robots más poderosos del mundo, aquellos que son considerados armas de destrucción masiva y tuvieron un papel destacado durante la última gran guerra. Pero gira en torno a ello sin olvidarse de contarnos las [...]

    12. Most of the time a second volume tends to decline just a bit in comparison to the first volume. It seems to be a trend, which is especially prominent in Shonen manga. Yet here with this, it only climbs. Considering my last review of the first volume, I gave it a 5. In comparison, this volume should get a minimum of 6.5/5. It is that good. I'm a sucker for robotics, mech, and other things similar to this genre, so it is more than likely my bias, but at least I can say without a doubt, this could [...]

    13. The mystery of the killer leaving horns behind with every victim intensifies as it claims another victim. Gesicht and Atom start working together to try and get some idea of what was going on. Yet another of the 7 most powerful robots die, leaving 4, and they are still no closer to finding out who the killer is.

    14. The second volume continues with the great pacing and artwork, and fleshes out more of the worldbuilding. It contains some powerful scenes, and throws the main character, Gesicht, into self-doubt and worry. Still really good.

    15. Stuff I Read – Pluto Vol 2So the second volume picks up right where the first one ended, with Gesicht meeting Atom, the Astro Boy character of this series based on an Astro Boy story. And the volume does an all right job of introducing the character but maintaining the darker tone that has dominated the story thus far. Instead of making this about Atom, the focus stays on Gesicht, and on the other robots that are being targeted by this Pluto. At the same time, Atom is starting to play a larger [...]

    16. Bien après la lecture du premier tome de la série qui m'avait laissé une impression mitigée, j'ai décidé de donner une deuxième chance à ce manga. Bien m’en a pris car ce second tome change la donne. J'avais été un peu déçu par le personnage principal du récit qui avait, selon moi, un charisme proche de celui de l'inspecteur Derrick. C'est encore un peu vrai mais, en le découvrant un peu mieux, on parvient à s'y attacher et même à ressentir de l'empathie. Au dela de ce personn [...]

    17. I am loving this series so much! It's an emotionally-charged, thought-provoking story with interesting characters and a huge mystery to uncover. I'm actually going to stop reading PLUTO now because I realize I need to go back and read Astro Boy in order to better appreciate this. I'll check back in on this review after I've read the source material and am re-reading this series.

    18. Avec ce tome, l'intrigue gagne en densité. Quelques indices apparaissent bien, mais ils ne font que complexifier la chose. Quant au passé, il s'entremêle de plus en plus à l'enquête, intriguant le lecteur. Et avec les nouvelles morts qui surviennent, la tension est à son comble. Pour compliquer l'aventure, une autre intrigue s'esquisse à peine, celle-là liée au personnage de Gesicht et touchant à ses rêves et souvenirs. De nouveaux éléments bien alléchants, qui donnent envie de voi [...]

    19. Atom is such a perfectly believable character. He owned every scene he was in- it's a bit weird to have a celebrity in a manga, but even the scenes when he and Gesicht (my fav cahracter by a wide margin) were talking I found it hard to focus on anything other than Atom.I found the bit with Brando heavy-handed, but, I always dismiss family scenes so no one is surprised ever.The one thing that they didn't quite pull off was when Brando announced that he had defeated the mysterious enemy. In the As [...]

    20. wonderful comics, special and thrilling i love the way and the temp the information is given and i enjoyed the art this volume, geseicht meets atom- "astro boy", and the detective shares information with him that changes his attitude. they talk about things like the difference between robots and humans, and what makes them speciel in spite of the other robots. i dont remember exactly every thing but i recommend this manga so much, it just draws you and you can't stop reading it, every thing is p [...]

    21. Pluto is a consistent and slow burn kind of story so my review will be short. Astro boy is a really compelling character, although then again, Pluto is full of great characters. I love the way the mystery builds and builds in this book. That is what a good mystery should do. Pluto is definitely a series that will tug at your heart and this volume is no exception. Urasawa's art really is fantastic and he makes a lot of people talking look interesting which is not easy to do. I haven't had a lot o [...]

    22. I did NOT realize this was the second in the series, so I'm definitely going back to read the first (and then ones after) but HOLY CRAP I STILL LOVED THIS SO MUCH. The art, god, the art is fucking beautiful. It's a black and white color palette mostly, (with the first few pages colored? anyone know why that is? The whole book colored would be gorgeous as hell), with manga-style characters and backgrounds but the interesting angles and simple but effective character and scenery design just makes [...]

    23. In volume 2 of Urasawa's Pluto, the plot barrels forward and the stakes of the conflict are raised. Urasawa utilizes both Gesicht and Tetsuwan Atom (Astro Boy) as point of view characters. Urasawa confines himself to the overarching narrative in this volume, rather than focusing on a North #2 style digression that would be so familiar to Urasawa's plot construction in Monster. The art is of the consistently high quality fans would have come to expect throughout the volume. Additionally, Urasawa [...]

    24. I am really loving this series. The art is simply fantastic and the story is so far masterful. As the second volume concludes, I found myself sad at the overall despair for most of the characters. I love the fact that the robots have emotional weight. It echoes something along the lines of gender and race issues. You don't see them as being morally different from humans. In fact, they seem to have the most humanity out of any of the characters in the series thus far. I am sold on this series and [...]

    25. The mystery of the robot killer widens in this second volume from Urasawa. We are introduced to Atom, otherwise known as Astro Boy, who joins Gesicht in his investigation of the murders of the great robots of the world. We also meet Hercules and Brando, the remaining living targets of Pluto.Urasawa does a wonderful job of representing and interpreting Osamu Tezuka's world. He draws us in with subplots and shows the uneasy balance between humans and robots and the internal conflicts that robots t [...]
