Synopsis:

Dr. Tenma is obsessed with creating a robot with a soul, so much that he forgot to care for his own son Toby; and when Toby is killed in a car crash, Dr. Tenma is overcome with grief and models his next robot, who has a soul, after his dead son. Things quickly take a turn for the worse as Toby is not accepted into society; and Dr. Tenma, angry with the fact that Toby is a robot who can't replace his son, drives Toby into the clutches of the evil owner of a robot circus, the place where he earns the name Astroboy. Astroboy is rescued by Dr. Elefun, Dr. Tenma’s successor, after his disappearance. From then on Astroboy has to struggle to be accepted into a society that views robots as inferior to humans, while fighting to protect them in turn. With the help of Dr. Elefun, Astroboy has to find his place on Earth and gain confidence in his own powers – all to become the greatest hero ever.

If you liked Astroboy, Ryuusei no Rockman is for you. Both of the main characters are futuristic heroes, and are searching for their pasts. They both have superhuman abilities along with a pure heart as all kind humans have,  but they are also robotic and save everyone else from danger.

Foop

Things really can't get more alike than this. Megaman and Astroboy are about superhuman boys who fight evil and usually succeed. Since they are so similar, I think they can be counted as a single show that won't be complete until you see them both.

Metropolis

Metropolis
  • Movie (1 ep x 109 min)
  • 2001

Metropolis is a grand high-tech city-state populated by humans and robots alike. It is in these streets that Detective Shunsaku Ban and his sidekick Kenichi search for the rebel scientist Dr. Laughton who unbenounced to them, is developing a super android named Tima as a tool for the Duke of Metropolis. What starts out as a normal case turns into mayhem as the scientist is murdered, and the true plans of the Duke are finally revealed...

StudioGirlKoi

Both being made by Ozamu Tezuka, both work's worlds deal with the interactions of humans and robots. And just like one another, Tima and Astro were brought into a world that could have easily ended for them or continued in tragedy due to the cruelty of people who injusticed against them due to their own wants of domination.

Plawres Sanshiro

Aznmonster

First off both these animes are made in the same decade,so the animation is alot alike.These animes are both about fighting robots,whoose chalenges always get biggger the more they defeat their foes.Astro of Astro and Sanshiro of Plawres Sanshiro become more popular in there battles so there is ALWAYS a bigger oppenet.
