After watching one of the greatest shows in the later years, and knowing how overlooked it was due various reasons: the simultaneous arrival of new potentially more appealing series like Claymore or Lucky Star, the possibly not so appealing genre, and the unique art style; I felt compelled to right a review on Terra e.... A show that consistently climbed the ladder of my top shows the season, and that finally ended up in my top 3 of all time.
The review will be long, since the series deserve it, and since I'll try to look at it in detail (yet keeping it spoiler free).

This anime shocked me in many ways. Firstly, it's a freaking 1977 manga story which already leaves a big generation gap between us. Secondly, it's omg science fiction which I have never liked before. Thirdly, what's with that weird drawing.

Little did I know that all the above factors matter not at all. The superbly crafted storyline coupled with that awesome character development easily let this anime to be one of my top favourites.

Gotta mention too that the opening and ending songs for this series were well-chosen and fitted the story nicely. It's therefore very hard not to let your emotions be tugged along. read more

Towards the Terra Review

Space operas are a type of show that is hard to pull off. They usually have too many characters, areas and concepts to be explore them properly. Only a few manage to be executed properly and luckily Towards the Terra is one of them.


The story take place in the future where Earth is now uninhabitable due to pollution and humans are living on colonized planets. Evolution has resulted in the birth of people with extraordinary powers is called Mu. The humans, who became a bunch of xenophobics, try eliminating the Mu by isolating themselves in a society where everything is controlled read more

Both set in space with plenty of space battles. They are set around a "race" seeking recognition of their existence in the universe. Both revolve around themes of xenophobia, acceptance, existence and return to the homeland.

It has a similar storyline (judging by the first episodes)... a boy who gets out of his home town or planet and goes to another place with 'strange' people and wants to go back home but finally takes the role he is destinated to have 
Epic. high quality space opera with an awesome cast of characters and epic choral pieces. 
The beginning of the story is the same and Sion resembles to Jomy Marcus Shin. 
Similar settings (humans fighting übermench), both have great character cast and are generally well-produced sci-fi series with action, drama and political intrigues. Main difference is that Gundam has mecha. 
Their main protagonist are forced into an unfamiliar world and are forced to adapt, in order to one day lead their respective people. Terra e... is more of a sci-fi series, whist Juuni Kokuki is a historical fantasy.
