This has probably been talked about before but about how many eps are we looking at here for Space Brothers? 52 maybe?

They've never announced it. I've just assumed they are going to run it for as long as they can, or at least until they catch up to the manga.

this is a pretty bizarre point to make... but considering how much of an effort the show makes to maintain a sense of realism (especially during the astronaut selection programs and anything that is truly space-related), why do they make the candidates so young? the youngest person ever accepted to be an astronaut by nasa has been 26 (hibito's age, but obviously he would have to have been selected much younger to go through the whole candidate process... one that can take 2 - 3 years.... then not to mention all of the training he has done). realistically, hibito is just too young. heck, even mutta is several years younger than the average astronaut selection age (34), yet he seems to be at the "older" end of the crowd. i don't know why this bothers me so much... i guess it's because i see how much effort they have put in to getting things accurate and realistic (the mars 1 mission and set up is even after nasa's new orion), so why wimp out in that one area?

I agree and expect more realism from this show than most. Especially for plans for going to Mars, such a young astronaut corps does not make sense. I assume they thought the intended audience would relate better to youth than the truth which would be a bunch of mature 40-60 year old married couples going to Mars based upon current studies of compatibility over long space voyages.

Episode 31

Hibito is finally in space. The realization that he finally left . I actually felt like crying at one point ,it was both sad and happy.


Anyway, it is true that Hibito does appear to be a very young astronaut. We do know that he really worked on becoming one since elementary. According to Mutta that he really accelerated a lot while in high school. His co astronaut said its been 5 long years of training and then he said 20 long years before that.,So whatever he did it was all geared towards just one goal in mind.

The show description almost sounded like a recap but it wasn't which is good! Great episode, as Hibito himself said, he is finally in space after all this time. We got to hear the dialog recorded by Hoshide too.

Speaking of realism, for a slow paced show that docking was awfully fast! That would have been a fatal crash. Dockings are painfully slow to watch in real life which is why they didn't take up the whole show for it of course.

The animations for the launch and space scenes were fantastic. Though certain elements were stylized and sped up, overall the accuracy was very well done. I also like how they treated the space animations as if they were filmed: you don't see the stars.

Great episode and one of my favorites in the series. And I've grown to love the OP.

I loved the barf bag...

The OP lyrics are great too. Even the ED is growing on me.

Yaah I was excited to hear Hoshide san too, the actual recorded lines form space , it made me feel like a kid ha ha ha

Episode 32

A Private Place

Woohoo !!! Hibito in Space. !!!

Anyway i sure was hungry when i saw the seafood at the begining damm ....must have shrimp on coctail sauce later .I like this episode . My little chihuahua pug mix was resting on my arm when i was watching this and when i saw Apo lying on Mutta . I sure was happy to see that.

It was afunny scene during the video transmission.Hibito is so cut
e.

WEll I think there indeed was a Pixie Croosroads in Titusville Florida which is located across Meritt Island pretty close to the Max Brewer Memorial Parkwa
y . It is not listed in the Kennedy Space center guide anymore ha ha,if it was they wouldnt use the actual name of the restaurant .

But I now want shrimp coctail

Its been a while since I visited that area to go to the Space center. I did saw a space shuttle launch back then , I was lucky but I didnt have a good camera back then,,, Next time I go to Florida I will definitely go there again and think of Space Brothers ha ha ha

Good episode but not as good as 31. Funny moments, serious ones too with Azuma. Soon, selections will be known at last.

This anime or the manga doesnt bank on the typical story telling style for an anime. Its more like reading a novel. Its the little detail here and there that counts.Its really difficult to judge one episode vs another.

Its a wonderful experience just to watch this anime , it makes me feel good inside and I will completely support this anime when the completed set comes out.

Oh yeah did I say I am really loving the OP song video a lot.

This has been a reliably enjoyable adult anime. I like the way the story is progressing and was surprised by the revelations about Azuma in the most recent episode.

The 'competition for the rare spot' part of the series hasn't been my favorite because it is overused in SF anime/manga (See Star Children / St@rs and many others).

I think it is interesting how the japanese don't see themselves independently launching their own people into space in the future. Seems like everyone has lower expectations.

The real question is whether NASA will be launching anything by the time this show takes place. Might be all private by then with all the government budget cuts... I don't think we'll ever see Orion or Mars fly, just too expensive.
