    Magnificent and stunning
    This anime... this anime right here. I must say, with all honesty, i love this show. There are no crazy villains, no superpowers, no over-the-top action battle scenes, nothing unnatural. Just a completely realistic anime with amazing characters and a powerful story to back them up.

    The show is about two brothers, but centers mostly around the big brother, whose dreams are to become astronauts ...

    It's a piece of cake.
    A nice slice of life anime where the main characters don't always win. I really enjoyed the characters, as you can actually relate to them on a human level. I really enjoyed the collaboration with NASA on this one My only complaint is that it ended too soon.

    Keeps you coming back
    This show draws you into the highs, lows, dreams and life-changing moments of its characters like no other I've watched over the past 10+ years.

    Space Brothers is the first anime drama I've truly enjoyed; things that would seem cliché in other shows are presented such in a clever, sensitive and nuanced way that you can't help coming back for more.

    With any luck, in a year or so once the ...

    A Truly Phenomenal Hidden Gem!
    At first glimpse this looks like another cheesy anime. In fact, I pretty much threw this anime out the window when I saw it premiere 2 years ago. It wasn't until the show was 30 episodes in that I finally decided to give it a chance. Boy was I in for a sweet ride and it felt so moon! (Feel So Moon, Opening 1 of Space Brothers)

    This show is about a middle-aged older brother, Nanba Mutta, finally ...

    My favorite anime of all time
    This is one of the best anime of all time! I cannot recommend it enough, it's different from most other shows but it is worth every single minute of your time.

    You come to care about the characters and the story sucks you in. This show has been the highlight of my week, it's that amazing.

    If you are on the edge about watching this, do yourself a favor and give it a try, you won't be ...

    A Staple of My Week for Two Years
    For the past two years, I have been watching this anime. It has brought me along for a ride of both sorrow and elation. I have suffered and watched with joy. This anime follows a cast of likeable characters and does not feel a need to use fan services or over-the-top action pulls to bring in viewers. It treats you like both an adult and a child with dreams at the same time.

    While watching this ...

    Cliffhanger galore! Great anime!
    What first drew me to this anime was the storyline...and the title...and the animation... Everything basically! I did not have any expectations when I watched the first episode but was drawn instantly! The characters are lovable, and you want to cheer for them.

    After reading Chris Hadfield's book, I have realised a lot of the technicalities in this anime are realistic. So that is a plus ...

    Probably the most underrated anime of all time
    The plot is quite simple but really makes you wonder what happens next. Some scenes are utterly inspirational I can't help but feel elated.
    I wouldn't fit this in any genre, it has all the action, comedy and inspiration I need. Never fails to make my day.

    Not your generic run-of-the-mill Anime.
    I'm surprised this show doesn't get more views. Then again, maybe it's a little more slow, and complex than most people can handle when it comes to anime. Your probably not going to find a better written anime series than this one. It's essentially all story driven. There's no 'fan service', monsters, super-over-the-top powered Heros and etc..

    This Anime is really good, the story has real depth ...

    A good balance of reality vs. fiction
    Initially, I was hesitant to watch this anime. It was suggested to me by my younger brother who often watches a mix of mystery/mahou-shoujo shows.

    This is well done. Some of the episodes drag on a little bit, and I understand that it is to build suspense, but there comes a point where I began to lose interest. There was even an unnecessary filler episode which put me off quite a bit. ...
