* The FIRST ARC was serialized in Weekly Shōnen King (Shōnen Gahosha ). It depicts the 009's origin story, the escape from Black Ghost, and running from cyborg assassins. It was briefly ended with the battle with the Mythos
Cyborgs story. * The SECOND ARC called The Underground Empire Yomi Arc appeared in Weekly Shōnen Magazine
Weekly Shōnen Magazine
( Kodansha
) alongside the release of the film version. The story is highly influenced by Edgar Rice Burroughs
Edgar Rice Burroughs
' Earth\'s Core series , including an expedition to the center of the Earth with a drill tank and a reptile race who can use telepathy and grow wings. The story ends with the final battle against Black Ghost. In the final scene, 009 and 002 fall into Earth's atmosphere and are seen as a shooting star by two small children, one who wishes for a toy gun the other for world peace (a scene reminiscent of Ray Bradbury 's Kaleidoscope ). This point was the intended finish for the series; however popular demand necessitated the two heroes be rescued. As such, 001 was able at the last minute of using his telekinetic powers to retrieve 002 and 009 from their plummet before death. * Thus began the THIRD ARC. Serialized in Monthly Bouken-oh ( Adventure
King) ( Akita Shoten ), it contained 6 story arcs, including the Monster Island Arc, the Middle East Arc, and the Angels Arc. The series abruptly ended during the Angels Arc. * The FOURTH ARC, called The Battle of the Gods Arc, was serialized in COM ( Mushi Production ). Ishinomori resumed and retold the interrupted Angels Arc with a new plot, but the series once again ended abruptly. Ishinomori would not resume the series for a few years after this. * The FIFTH ARC was serialized in Shōjo Comic
Shōjo Comic
( Shogakukan
), and included the Wind City Arc, the Snow Carnival Arc, and the Edda Arc. The story deals with legendary and mythical like characters challenging the 00 Number Cyborgs. * The SIXTH ARC connected to the 5th arc. Arcs such as the Deinonychus Arc (appeared in Monthly Shōnen Jump ( Shueisha
)) and Green Hole Arc (appeared in Play Comic ( Akita Shoten )) were depicted, then after a long time the Underwater Pyramid Arc was serialized in Monthly Manga
Shōnen ( Asahi Sonorama ). * The SEVENTH ARC was serialized in Weekly Shōnen Sunday ( Shogakukan
) to go with the revival anime. A long arc consisting of many short arcs, this series dealt with the battle against Neo Black Ghost as well as the emotional trauma of the 00 Number Cyborgs. The story is set approximately 20 years after the Yomi Arc, and the personalities and conduct of the cyborgs are depicted as more adult. * The EIGHTH ARC was serialized in Monthly Comic Nora ( Gakken ). A long arc called People Drifting Through Time and Space Arc, and is a sequel to the Immigration Arc. The Count of St. Germain from the Underwater Pyramid Arc appears, but his design is different. * Ishinomori's death made this the last work of the series, although it is not the final chapter.
