    Steel is my body, and fire is my blood.
    I have created over a thousand blades.
    Unknown to death.
    Nor known to life.
    Have withstood pain to create many weapons.
    Yet, those hands will never hold anything.
    So as I pray, "Unlimited Blade Works."

    You had me freaking reading that article for about an hour. Man was all that interesting. I started with Astro Boy, and ended up with the controversy of Kimba the White Lion (or something) and The Lion King. That was oddly similar. I believe it was a stolen idea!

    Astro Boy is not the oldest anime but rather, its the beginning of the anime.. or you could say that Astro Boy is the one who started anime and manga revolution which make Osamu Tezuka got himself a title "The father of manga"... thats what i know even though i dont know about it exactly

    Gigantor... but no. Astro Boy aired in January 1963 while Gigantor aired on October 1963, so it's second

    Just read the wikipedia link posted by Ichi. It has a timeline table which answers all questions.
