Wow, here I started to write a review of this Anime I have found on Crunchy Roll, I stumble onto the fact that this show, which naturally has it’s origin in a Manga, was also made into a live action film which came out May 5th, 2012.
Anyway, I am here to talk about the anime. This series is set to have approximately 77 episodes and it follows a couple of brothers. One, the younger Hibito, has successfully followed his dream of being an astronaut. The other, Mutta also had dreamed to become an astronaut, has fallen behind on that dream, but as fate would have it, and the help of his younger brother, we explore the events of Mutta joining JAXA and catching up with Hibito.
I particularly took interest in this show as besides being an anime fan, I also work on the Space Track at Dragon Con. Any show that helps encourage people to dream about space is very welcome.
The show is very pleasant and enjoyable as well as realistic. Even NASA has cooperated with the show, but I noted in the credits it has a disclaimer, “The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA’s) cooperation and assistance does not reflect an endorsement of the contents of the film or the treatment of the characters therein.
As for the animation, it is pretty standard, and nothing really out of the ordinary.
I highly recommend it for anyone who loves space! 🙂
