Pluto Trailer By Netflix
Masayura believes that now is the perfect time for the manga series Pluto to receive an anime adaptation. Despite its critical acclaim among manga readers, the series concluded in 2009 without an anime adaptation.
Masayura argues that today’s technologies, including robotics and artificial intelligence (AI), have advanced to the point where they can effectively portray the intricate machinations depicted in Pluto’s manga.
According to Masayura, the story of Pluto, which explores themes of robotics and AI, has become more relevant and realistic in today’s world. Masayura draws a comparison to Astro Boy, which was introduced more than 60 years ago, and Urasawa’s Pluto, which was introduced more than ten years ago.
Masayura believes that artists like Urasawa possess a visionary quality and are able to anticipate future developments. In this case, Masayura suggests that the current technological advancements have finally caught up with the futuristic elements depicted in Pluto, making it an ideal time for an anime adaptation.
Pluto producer’s thoughts on AI technology and anime
Masayura, the long-time producer, was asked about his thoughts on the rise of AI in anime, particularly in relation to concerns raised by other creators. Some artists, such as Junji Ito, have expressed worries about AI imitating their unique art styles.
Additionally, Samuel Deats, the director of Castlevania, criticized the claim made by studio Corridor Digital that their AI-driven technique “democratized the animation industry.” Deats referred to their method as lazy thievery and a disrespect to the art form.
In response to these concerns, Masayura shared his perspective with Kotaku. He acknowledged the potential benefits of using AI wisely and effectively, seeing it as a tool that can enhance convenience in various aspects.
However, he also expressed a sense of crisis and danger regarding the possibility of humans being overshadowed or controlled by artificial intelligence.
In the midst of these discussions, it was announced that Pluto, the manga series, will premiere as an anime on Netflix on October 26.
