"Ultimately, the manga surprised me. Reading about Twin Spica's lead trying to go into space, I got choked up. It is more sensitive and naturalistic than other space academy manga (even ones I've liked)..."--Ain't It Cool News
"It's easy to see why the series was a smash hit in its native land... The relationship between father and daughter is very moving, and Asumi's interaction with her equally ambitious schoolmates is also compelling stuff... Each page contains more genuine emotion than an entire space fleet's worth of similarly themed stories. Opening with a strong introductory volume, this series shows great promise and bodes well for future installments."--Publishers Weekly

He followed his debut with a follow up mini-series called Asumi focusing on the early childhood of Twin Spica's young heroine Asumi Kamokawa. The Asumi series was such a runaway success Media Factory signed Yaginuma up to pen Twin Spica for Comic Flapper in the Fall of 2001.
