The story focuses on the exploits of Mars, a mysterious boy found on the uninhabited island Akinoshima by a news reporter. This classic manga series is by the same genius of Tetsujin 28 and Giant Robo.

"Mars" by Mitsuteru Yokoyama is a short, underappreciated classic.

I will avoid spoilers, but the story starts off slow but gradually gets faster in pace until it gets out of hand before the abrupt, but satisfying, end. Mars' dilemma and the morals all perfectly tie together, and with the ending make it an overall sad, but fun read.

The art is simple, but extremely expressive. Robot design is exactly what to expect from Mitsuteru Yokoyama, rounded and simple, and very shiny. The character design is fun, Mars with his flowing hair, the middle aged reporter, and all the crusty old men villains are pretty good.
