Its focus is on the adventures of the titular "Astro Boy" (or simply "Astro"), a powerful robot created by the head of the Ministry of Science Doctor Tenma to replace his son Tobio, who died in a car accident, Dr. Tenma built Astro in Tobio's image and treated him as lovingly as if he were the real Tobio, but soon realized that the little android could not fill the void of his lost son, especially since Astro could not grow or express human aesthetics (in one set of panels, Astro is shown preferring the mechanical shapes of cubes over the organic shapes of flowers). In the original 1960 edition, Tenma rejected Astro and sold him to a cruel circus owner, Hamegg, who abused the performers.
While Astro languished in Hamegg's circus, Professor Ochanomizu, the new head of the Ministry of Science, noticed Astro Boy performing in the circus. He managed to make Hamegg turn Astro over to him. He brought Astro along and treated him gently and warmly, becoming his legal guardian. He soon realized that Astro was gifted with superior powers and skills, as well as the ability to experience human emotions.

Before he can explain his error, a beautiful goddess named Belldandy (Japanese transliteration of the Norse Ver?andi) materializes in his room. She tells him that her agency has received a system request from him, and has sent her to grant him one wish. Keiichi is skeptical, thinking it more plausible that his dormmates are playing some manner of practical joke on him. He seeks to defuse the prank by asking Belldandy to stay with h
