This show is probably my favorite anime of all time, yeah I said it...
In spite of its inconsistant development both character-wise and pacing, I genuinly loved this anime because unlike the vast majority of tv-shows, Japanese, american or otherwise! These characters felt genuinly relatable and real.

There are no general consensus on the rating of this show so it seems, not a love/hate thing nor is it a matter of anyone leaning towards a positive or more negative spectrum of the evalutation, but one thing seems clear to me and that is that the people who loved this show, watched this show with a passion!

TL;DR - Does anyone have a link to a website that provides infomation as for why this show got cancelled?
Even if it is a matter of money, I'd like to see a source somewhere.
The only thing I can find are angry bloggers.

It's not cancelled, they just ended it since they were catching up to the manga. Plus they plan on doing a movie.

A-1 probably rerouted the funds to help produce the new Fairy Tail season, also.

This is very good news...
I hope it'll be as good as the Haruhi movie.

There were way too many setups that never had their payoffs see the light of day.

Sigh... another generic anime full of tits and mindless action in true Michael Bay style with a japanese edge to it.

Because it is.

I don't mind these kind of shows in fact I quite like them, but there's just... so... many of them.

I like Space Brothers, but I love Fairy Tail. Every other show on my top 10 list is higher quality, but Fairy Tail will always hold a special place in my heart because of the long list of great characters and their camaraderie.

I loooove Space Brothers and miss having new episodes to watch every week.

Last month in the Uchuu Kyoudai/Space Brothers discussion thread someone posted a link to twitter (but the tweet is in Japanese) that pretty much says what others have recapped here--it's on hiatus while they make a movie. Here's that link:

Since that seems to be about all that is known at this time, I'm going to go ahead and close this thread.

If you'd like to discuss Space Brothers further, please post in the discussion thread linked to above. And if you have other questions that call more for information than discussion, you can also post them in The Anime Help Thread--this is especially useful when the questions aren't about a show that we have a discussion thread for.
