The Pluto anime was first announced in 2017 at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival in France. It has been in production for 7 years, with Studio M2 founder Masao Maruyama confirming in 2022 that the anime is still in the works.

The Pluto manga is based on Osamu Tezuka’s Astro Boy manga, specifically the “The Greatest Robot on Earth” arc. Pluto was serialized in Shogakukan’s Big Comic Original magazine from September 2003 to April 2009. Viz Media has licensed the manga in English, describing the first volume as:
In an ideal world where man and robots coexist, someone or something has destroyed the powerful Swiss robot Mont Blanc. Elsewhere a key figure in a robot rights group is murdered. The two incidents appear to be unrelated…except for one very conspicuous clue – the bodies of both victims have been fashioned into some sort of bizarre collage complete with makeshift horns placed by the victims’ heads. Interpol assigns robot detective Gesicht to this most strange and complex case – and he eventually discovers that he too, as one of the seven great robots of the world, is one of the targets.
