Prequel is set to stream on select outlets and head to home video
Sentai Filmworks has more Space Brothers anime on the way with the license of the Space Brothers #0 anime film. The feature-length prequel to the TV anime is coming to home video with both the theatrical and Chuya Koyama special edition cuts of the film, and it will also be available to stream on select outlets at a later date.
Ayumu Watanabe (Ace Attorney) returns to direct, with original creator Chuya Koyama on the screenplay. Here's how Sentai describes it:
Set four years before the events of the Space Brothers TV series, Space Brothers #0 tells the story of two brothers on disparate paths. Hibito Namba is a rookie astronaut in training while his brother, Mutta, has found his own ambitions at a disappointing standstill. When Hibito is selected to train for a coveted NASA space mission, it sets in motion a series of events that takes the brothers to the crossroads of destiny and dreams.
