Synopsis

When Kamogawa Asumi was just a baby, her mother was grievously injured when a rocket crashed to the ground. Five years later, having been in a coma all the time, Asumi's mother finally dies, and the little girl struggles to come to terms with the death of a mother she barely remembers. In the midst of her turmoil, she meets "Lion-san," a strange figure wearing a lion mask and claiming to be a ghost. Lion-san helps Asumi to bury her mother's ashes, and finally, Asumi reaches her own decision: "When I grow up, I'm going to be a rocket pilot."

Twin Spica is a pretty good anime for young viewers. I say that because there are alot of morals and good values taught in this show. If you don't mind most of that stuff im sure anyone would enjoy this show. The show evolves a young girl named Asumi Kamogawa whos dream is to become an astronaut. The story starts off as a very young Asumi and then progresses forward from there. Although Asumi is a very engeretic and smart little girl, theres more than enough tragic stories in this show to last a lifetime. Which is another point. Even though you will be convinced read more

Twin Spica is about a group of friends that want to become astronauts. However, unlike Stelliva of the Universe, it is more of a slice of life anime and down to earth. For the most part Twin Spica is character driven focusing mainly on Asumi and later on Marika. What differentiates Asumi from other leads in other "HS space dramas" is that she is a very strong willed and determined character despite her diminutive stature. She has gone through a lot and yet has never whined or cried. We are later introduced to her friends when she goes to the read more

The most apparent similarity is their focus on astronomy. Sora no Manimani explores the beauty of the night sky, while Twin Spica delves into the lure of space and space travel. Beyond that though, there is a gentle dignity to both series -- in the day-to-day life, troubles and challenges, interpersonal relationships, and romance. Energy comes from small, spunky girls who do not allow challenges to get in the way of their love for astronomy. Quietly supporting them are male childhood friends -- with a touch of sweet, understated romance.

Both Planetes and Twin Spica deal with astronauts, although in Twin Spica's case, they are astronauts-in-training. Both are serious dramas involving the emotional growth of the main characters, but Planetes offers far more in the way of comic relief. Twin Spica, on the other hand, is a fairly intense emotional drama with little in the way of comic relief. Fans of the more serious moments of Planetes will probably find much to enjoy in the oftentimes sad tale of Twin Spica.
