    One of the best series ever!
    We curl up on the couch to watch this every Sunday morning.

    From the realism of the training, the fun drama of the interpersonal relationships, abounding nostalgia touchstones and edge of your chair cliff hangers at times, this should be watched by everyone.

    Another phenomenal point of the series is how it is working to give a feeling of wonder, to rekindle the spark for space exploration ...

    The dream and wonder of space exploration for the first time in too long of a time.
    A slight background on myself: I was born in '58 so that makes me 55 now. I grew up with space flight and dreaming of becoming an astronaut for real. I watched us land on the moon on TV and avidly followed the other Apollo and Shuttle missions. I never perused my dream and our country let it go as well. It has always been a disappointment to me that its this way. I am so glad of the progress ...

    Beautiful and high quality animation + lolz
    This is great stuff. Here's why you should watch it:
    - the animation is high quality and can often be quite beautiful
    - the voice actors (especially that of Mutta) are really great
    - Japanese portrayals of the U.S. are hilarious
    - it's hilarious in general, especially if you can appreciate awkwardly self-aware internal dialogue
    - it's not about kids in high school

    This series ...

    Feel good anime about chasing your dreams.
    A feel good Anime meant for an older audience. Not because it's crude or shows stuff they shouldn't show the kiddies. It's a well written drama of everyday life and chasing your dreams. Those dreams you may have left behind as a child. Well you can still work towards making them happen at any age.

    An Absolute Gem! One of the best shows of the season, animated or otherwise.
    I've largely outgrown my interest in anime. This is a great exception. Well written, entertaining, funny, touching, and wonderfully drawn.

    The only fanservice here is that every episode is littered with shots of space, rockets, and astronauts. Characters are relatable and well developed, and the story is will keep you coming back to see what crazy hijinks Mutta gets up to in his quest to chase ...

    Best anime series on air
    I'm not a big anime fan, but this is the kind of show everyone can enjoy. No stupid plots about high school teens. Just a realistic, grounded and inspirational story with great characters and situations. I look forward every week to seeing another episode. If you have any interest in this, check this out.

    Life-Changing Series
    These brothers bring to the world something great that words cannot express. It's full of roller coasters, laughs, and heart wrenching moments. This show teaches you something unique, that can not be learned easily anywhere else. Watching this has to be one of the greatest decisions in my life.

    Space Brothers Is A Must Watch.
    When you watch enough anime, you start to feel like you know what the genre is capable of. Sometimes a show will surprise you, but most fall into a pretty defined categories. What is so amazing about space Brothers is that it goes way outside the normal limits of the genre. There isn't any power-ups, super powers, or under-age girls wearing porn costumes. Instead what you get is an amazingly ...

    WATCH IT!!!! YOU WON'T REGRET IT!!!!!
    This anime is so inspiring it's helped me stay positive in my own journey towards my dream.

    unlike most anime there is nothing extraordinary about this show. It's plain and simple middle aged men trying to get their shit together but thats exactly what makes this anime so perfect. Its imperfections makes it perfect. the characters dont look cool and are messy and they fail all the time just ...

    Scoot over Naruto and Gon, Mutta-san is here
    Other reviewers have mentioned that the characters are very relatable and easy to identify with. I'd say it's more like the author is the Orson Scott Card of anime, which is to say that you will feel as if the writer has really walked a mile in your shoes. I certainly did. There were moments throughout this series that I could identify with so well it was scary. I'm astonished (and relieved) that ...
