Toshio Kawaguchi is the director of the Japanese anime action-adventure series “Pluto,” which has aspects of cyberpunk. The show is based on the Japanese manga series of the same name, written and illustrated by Naoki Urasawa. The manga series itself is an adaptation of “Greatest Robot on Earth,” a story by Osamu Tezuka, from the comic series “Astroboy.” Robotic police detective Gesicht in the anime version looks for the truth behind a string of murders, both human and robot, that seem to be connected. Gesicht finds out there is a plot to end the world as he delves more into the intricate network of crimes, intentions, and human emotions. Here is all the information you need to know about “Pluto’s” conclusion if you’re wondering if the issue is resolved and there is peace in this bizarre planet where people and robots live side by side. AHEAD OF SPOILERS!
Pluto Plot Synopsis
“Pluto” centres around Gesicht, a sophisticated robot that serves as an investigator for Europol. When Gesicht finds out that Mont Blanc, one of the world’s seven strongest robots who fought in the 39th Central Asian War, has died, he is assigned to look into the death of a robot rights activist. Gesicht later finds out about the murder of a police robot in Germany. Gesicht is unable to identify whether the murders were carried out by a robot or a person based on the evidence uncovered in the countries of Germany and Switzerland, where Mont Blanc was killed. However, as robots are incapable of feeling hatred—an emotion required for murder—they are unable to carry out murders according to the robot laws.
North 2, a butler to a blind musician in Scotland who also fought in the 39th Central Asian War, is slain inexplicably in the interim. Gesicht is therefore certain that the assassin is going after the top seven robots in the world. Consequently, he sets off for Japan, where he encounters Atom, a sophisticated robot that resembles a little child. Subsequently, Gesicht alerts Hercules and Brando about the seven robots that are the strongest and serve as robot grapplers. But Mont Blanc’s close buddy Brando lures the murderer and tries to take on the threat alone, only to lose his life in the process.
In the meantime, Gesicht learns that all of the people being assassinated have ties to the Bora fact-finding trip, which took place just before the 39th Central Asian War. Atom talks with Professor Ochanomizu, the group’s leader, and his sister, Uran’s designer, after learning about the Bora survey team. Finding proof of rumours that the Kingdom of Persia had robots capable of wreaking havoc on the entire planet was the primary goal of the Bora fact-finding mission, according to Professor Ochanomizu. The 39th Central Asian War began when the United States of Thracia invaded Persia in the face of overwhelming evidence to support their claims.
Gesicht eventually learns that Pluto, the God of War, is alluded to by the horns left at the crime locations. Later on, it is disclosed that Pluto is the name of Professor Abullah’s extremely sophisticated robot. In another scene, Hercules is joined by Epsilon, a photon-powered robot who was one of the seven strongest robots that abstained from fighting the war due to his pacifist beliefs. When Hercules is slain in the battle, Epsilon’s perspective is altered. Subsequently, Professor Tenma, Atom’s creator, is forced to come out of his self-imposed retirement after Atom is attacked and killed.
Gesicht finds out that Sahad, a peaceful robot in the Netherlands, provided the AI that Professor Abullah used to develop Pluto. Gesicht is slain, nevertheless, before he can discover the whole truth about the killings. In the meantime, Epsilon defeats Pluto in combat and discovers a greater danger known as “Bora.” But before he can find out more about Bora, Pluto strikes Epsilon, and in order to save the kids he adopted, Epsilon gives his life. The globe is consequently helpless to stop Pluto’s menace. However, by reintroducing Gesicht’s fragments into Atom’s awareness, Professor Tenma is able to successfully bring him back to life.
Pluto Ending: How Does Atom Stop Pluto and Bora?
When Professor Abullah unleashes Bora, a robot stronger than Pluto and created out of sheer malice, in the climax, his grand scheme is finally exposed. Professor Abullah hated the world since his family was killed in a conflict that was initiated unfairly. Professor Abullah killed the seven strongest robots to prevent them from thwarting his plan, and as a result, he built Bora to destroy the world. Bora is designed to blow out the earth’s core and release a magma explosion, which will kill off all but 10% of humanity. But Professor Abullah has no idea that Atom has been resurrected and has come to confront Pluto.
Atom almost gives in to his hatred during his battle with Pluto because of the grief he has from having Gesicht’s memories implanted in him. But Gesicht’s last moments, in which the investigative robot begs Atom not to succumb to hatred, flash before his eyes. Consequently, Atom gathers his courage, sees through Pluto, and establishes a connection with Sahad, who is fighting to break free from the body that makes him kill people. When Atom returns to Earth’s surface to battle Bora after decommissioning Pluto, he is shocked to discover that Pluto has changed his mind.
Pluto gives his life in battle to atone for the horrors he has done, and he and Atom are able to stop Bora before the planet is destroyed. Atom is saved by Professor Ochanomizu at the end of the series, and he pays respects to his fallen allies. Since Atom was involved in a similar situation during the 39th Central Asian War, the conclusion serves to further support the belief that he is the world’s ray of hope and peace. But throughout the course of the episode, Atom transitions from pretending to feel human emotions to truly going through them, including the ability of hatred to motivate people to carry out horrifying crimes like war and genocide.
Is Professor Abullah Dead?
It is Professor Abullah who has let monsters like Pluto and Bora loose on the world. The idea of exacting retribution for the passing of his family drives him. In order to carry out his last act of rebellion, Professor Abullah kidnaps Professor Tenma after launching Bora to destroy the globe as the last stage in his plot. Tenma is to transplant his consciousness into a robot in order to escape the apocalyptic world that Professor Abullah has unleashed. But when Professor Abullah finds out that he’s already a robot, he’s astonished. Tenma discloses that the actual Professor Abullah urged Tenma to transfer his consciousness into a robot in his last moments before dying in the conflict. As a result, the Professor Abullah we see throughout the series is a robot duplicate of the real one, so overcome with wrath and sorrow that he ends up destroying both humans and robots. In the end, Professor Abullah’s AI is unable to process the information and soon perishes.
Who Is the Teddy Bear?
A teddy bear by the name of Dr. Roosevelt is shown to be the president of the United States of Thracia’s counsellor throughout the series, but particularly in the last several episodes. In the end, though, it becomes clear that the plush toy is actually a potent, sentient supercomputer. Dr. Roosevelt is the puppet master who manipulates world affairs from behind closed doors, driving humans into a conflict with robotics. Despite the lack of proof that Persia possessed robots capable of wreaking massive havoc, Dr. Roosevelt orchestrated the plans that culminated in the invasion of that country by the Thracians. Dr. Roosevelt had been methodically taking advantage of the prejudice against robots and advocating for an all-out war between factions ever since the robots were granted equal human rights.
Dr. Roosevelt’s real intention is to exterminate humans and replace the years of enslavement robots endured at the hands of humans with robots as the de facto ruling class. In the end, Atom finds out about Dr. Roosevelt’s scheme and assigns Brau 1589, a robot imprisoned for murder, to handle the matter. Brau 1589 makes an appearance at Dr. Roosevelt’s bunker in the closing minutes, killing the supercomputer and removing Dr. Roosevelt’s power over global affairs. Dr. Roosevelt’s passing, together with Atom halting Bora, opens the door to international peace and sows the seeds for a future inclusive society and improved human-robot cooperation.
