That was the live-action movie. There's an anime movie coming out this summer:

Finally started watching this today and damn, it is awesome so far. I am up to episode 8 now and will be continuously watching it until I reach the end (episode 99).

At first, I didn't really like Mutta but he has grown to me now just after these 8 episodes for his determination. I find the relationship between him and his brother to be quite interesting and realistic. As far as the latest episode goes, it seems like he discovered a letter of sorts belonging to his brother that doesn't seem to be very pleasant. I wonder what it's about...

I watched the whole thing just recently, I think it deserves it's popularity (maybe more). The pacing can be a bit strange and it has those three recap episodes but I found it to be fairly consistently enjoyable. I liked the way it gave interesting stories to most of the side characters (it seems like a bad idea but it always works and they usually tie well into the stories of the brothers). The one slight disappointment was that Amanti never really got a proper side story (maybe it'd be later).

It'd be nice if they made more, although I think it works reasonably well as it is.

About the recap episodes (52-54 I think), the first and last couple of minutes are new but I think you can safely skip the rest (unless you really need the recap). You could probably skip the whole episodes but I kind of liked the jokes (especially the exercise routine).

This show is pretty much what us space nuts love. It's near future SF based on real technology with a good story. And what Mutta goes through is pretty realistic. Like you said, he--and all the characters for that matter--grow a lot as the series progresses. Mutta is really the glue that holds everything together. His reactions get better all the time. And just when you think he's a bit of a flake, he does something very thoughtful.

I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy the rest of the series, with the exception of the recap episodes, and the animated Mr. Hibbito.

Damn, what a journey it has been. A friend of mine told me about this show awhile ago but I picked up recently since I don't marathon series much anymore. Yet, after finishing show, I have no regrets.

I really like how the series captures realism and the characters at their fullest through their experiences. And whether they are success or failures, I think they learn a lot about what to expect. I also liked the characterization of not just Mutta and Hibito but as well as other supporting characters. I think some of my favorite episodes are actually the ones focused on them such as Olga, Serika, Vince, Kenji, etc. Of course, Mutta's journey towards becoming an astronaut was also a building foundation of this series. I am somewhat disappointed at not seeing Mutta being on the Moon though or Serika actually working in space. Maybe that will be covered in the future if this show gets another season?

Anyways, it's a great show imo with decent soundtrack as well. I think my favorites were ED song 5 and this one:

Overall rating this 9/10.

Time to read the manga~
