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.Read more ›
graphics are great, really astounding actually, and the story was pretty good.
So I searched and searched for more of that same really high edged ultra cool graphics that Appleseed ExMachina has, and I found this. What I liked about this set is that the series succeeds in keeping my interest peeked, the episodes have pretty good story lines, and the graphics are very high quality, none of that usual washed out looking graphics that most anime seems to always have.
The setting is in space, in the not so distant future and is realistically centered around a few of earth's space stations, a small moon colony, things that aren't so far fetched or absurdly depicted like intergalactic warp drive Sci Fi nonsense.
The plot is very humorous a lot of times, and there are plenty of everyday examples of "real" heroism, when scared people just do their jobs, going that extra distance to cope with everyday hardships that come up as they always will, and that comes with this territory.
This is the complete set of the first year I believe. It is the best set available. i know as I ordered the same episodes by mistake
( I thought they were the second season episodes but they weren't ) and that set cost more money and didn't look as good nor was it organized as well.Read more ›
The real shame, however, is that only the first season was licensed here, initially, in '07, by ADV Films, but acquired by FUNimation in '08 in the wake of ADV's demise, and at this remove it seems unlikely that FUN is going to get season 2 (far as I know they've never finished up an incomplete series acquired from another US distributor), unless of course they get enough requests for it...
But anyway, it's time for me to sign off and get back to identifying the last four clip shows in Transformers Victory (gad, an anime researcher's work is never done--thank goodness!)
One more thing; if you like this sort of thing, I highly recommend Mighty Space Miners and Planetes (both available via Amazon, I believe, plug, plug).
This was literally the best anime ever to watch with my bros. We watched it and felt like someone had decided to make a show specifically for the 25-40 crowd who enjoys drinking, carousing, and unprofessional behavior.
Had delayed reviewing because we went through the first 5 or 6 episodes and had a great time, but we haven't come back to finish it (other life responsibilities intervened).
We were all inspired to reach a little higher and to loosen our ties a bit and relax, and wholeheartedly enjoyed the crass sense of humor.
The plot and characters are ridiculous (although not quite gaogaigar level) and the situations we saw pretty direct. Was worth it for us.
But definitely don't watch this around kids! It is definitely not appropriate as the protagonists are hot blooded, confident men and there's enough drinking and carousing and pursuing the ladies for an Alexander Dumas novel. The first episode will give you exactly the right impression as to what's in store.

Loved the anime, think "planetes" when you go to purchase this but as a precurser to the state of space development in the anime planetes.Published on January 29, 2011 by Munkyfst
