Space, the final frontier, and what a frontier it is. Humans long ago looked up at the stars, and reached out to grasp them. From the words of Captain Kirk, "to boldly go where no man has gone before".

Story: 8

The human race, always moving forward, never looking back. So eager to abandon the cradle of life that raised them. The cause and effect of this ambition are highlighted within the 25 episodes of the show."Planetes" is something truly unique in the Anime scene. This is essentially a SoL (Slice of Life) in space, which alone makes it something different from the norm, but read more

It can be pretty hard to convince people to watch a show about garbage men... IN SPACE. How could a show like that possibly be interesting? Well I'm here today to tell you that this is one of the best anime out there, and something everyone should give a try.

Planetes starts about how you might expect a show with such an odd premise to begin. It's a very quirky show, practically a comedy/sitcom type show. The first 13 episodes or so are all episodic, there's lots of laugh, and the show rarely takes itself too seriously. At this point I would call the show very read more

Recommendations

Both have a somewhat earnest and idealistic female as the leading character who tries to change the world they live in. Both also have a relatively smaller close-knit group of characters. The male lead in each series is shorter than average and have hot-heads. The art styles and character designs deviate from regular anime styles and both these shows have political undertones.
Although the plots are very different, a theme in Planetes seems to be fear of isolation. It's the only other show I can think of besides N.H.K. that seems to have captured a very 'real' quality in its characters' fear, motivations, weaknesses and behaviors. Very complex in terms of not seeming overwrought or artificial and keeping a healthy dose of humor (like N.h.K.) in the show.

Opening Theme

"Dive in the Sky" by Mikio Sakai

Ending Theme

#1: "Wonderful Life" by Mikio Sakai (eps 1-25)
#2: "PLANETES ~Affettuosso~" by Hitomi Kuroishi (ep 26)
