This first season of Moonlight Mile is a relatively realistic look into the future development of alternative international space programs, as experienced through two main characters/friends who share an ambition to reach the moon. Conveniently, these friends tread largely independent paths, thus allowing insight into multiple space organizations.

Both friends are keen of mind and also keen on sexual conquest. The former provides many entertaining moments whether it be American ace pilot Lostman deftly aiming a space shuttle or his friend--the Japanese construction specialist extraordinaire Goro--intuiting the best route for saving a trapped construction worker. The "conquest" issue, however, drags down both the characters and the maturity quotient. The issue certainly isn't that they are sexually active as such, but the tangential explicit inclusion of most of these sex scenes comes off as crass. Almost like self-sabotaging an otherwise mature work to appeal to those who don't quite get what "mature" entails.

This also leads to issues with the translation. The English voice acting is superb here but the script itself sadly adds an extra layer of immaturity that actually isn't present in the subtitles. One scene really made this difference stand out in particular. In the English dub, Lostman speaks to his latest temp girlfriend like a cheap trick, foul language placed where none was before. In the subtitles, the script and va intonation comes off much more respectful, and no foul language.

Overall, the series was well-produced if uneven in episode quality. The show could have benefited from more Lostman-focused episodes.

Had you asked me just last week to identify a legitimate alternative to BanDai's impeccable space drama, Planetes, I would have been hard pressed to comply. Now, having just completed my tour of Funimation's Moonlight Mile Complete First Season DVD set, the choice is clear. Coming seemingly out of nowhere, the complete first season of the show comprises two discs for a total of 12 episodes packaged in the thin pack format (within a cardboard slip box).

To begin this review, I suppose the best way to describe it in terms of feel and style and would be to go ahead and compare it directly to Planetes (see my full review of that DVD set if that comparison means little to you). The action in Moonlight Mile starts literally within the fist scene of the first episode with a lunar-surface sequence that hints to a whole lot of realistic action to come. Like Planetes, Moonlight Mile combines (nearly flawlessly) a drab pallet of realistically proportioned characters with ultra-rich textured CGI sequences. However, despite a near identical look and a common affinity for extremely realistic space physics and facts, the similarities between the two shows end there. Where Planetes used the backdrop of space to weave a tale of innocence, the enthusiasm of youth, and the consequences of man's interaction with the cosmos, Moonlight Mile is dark, gritty, and often unforgiving in its prose. In a lesser-crafted anime work, some of these traits may be construed as flaws but Mile builds upon these elements to get its point across quite nicely.

The story centers on two lead characters; an American Naval aviator call sign Lost Man and a Japanese building inspector/ construction worker named Goro Saruwatari.

Are you done watching bubblegum neon-tint high school kids superhero their way beyond the impossible? Are you weary of huger than huge breasted moe teenage girls magicking their way through life's problems? Are you tired of fifteen year old samurai supermen drowning their doubts about their sexual orientation in lakes of blood? Are you just tired of Japan's self-emasculation and fascination of women-men? Then step right up.

After reading past reviews of this, and analyzing them, I knew that I was in for a good story, and I wasn't disappointed. Sometimes, you don't need some bashing over the head about the agonizing of a bishie seventeen year old who can pilot a supertech giant robot plane like he was born to it but can't decide whether to get it on with the hot superglam pop star or the 14 going on 12 underclassgirl nascent savior of the galaxy. You know which story I'm talking about. And I'm not even scratching the surface of the really embarrassing stuff out there.

This story is about two dudes who go for it. They drink and screw their way through life, but hey, whatever: Who's really going to take serious advice on morality from otakus? There's some good old sinister gummint plotting, some storytelling about what a new energy source would mean for global politics and interstate maneovering, and there is plenty of room to grow. It's not too complicated, but you know, I get plenty of complication in my day job. This hits the spot.
