Synopsis

The year is AD 2225. Kouji Aiba and Aoi Housen are serving as astronauts in-training in Liebe Delta which is located on the edge of the Geduld Sea. When saboteurs with unknown intents suddenly strike during a routine dive procedure, the space station plummets into the Geduld, a plasma field that links all the planets like a nervous system and crushes any ship that strays too far into it. With all the adults onboard killed, the young astronauts will have to survive this long journey home in midst of the growing tension amongst each other. Meanwhile the organizers of the sabotage look on and prepare to attack once more.

oOoOoOo
Infinite Ryvius is essentially "Lord of the Flies" on a spaceship, although with students old enough to be in high school (surprise, surprise). Once the students are stranded without their teachers, in various hostile situations, the anime becomes a microcosm for the problem of governance. We have the authoritarians, we have the democrats, and everyone in-between. Most striking for me, about this series, was the slow descent from happy-go-lucky "let's try our best at being space heroes" to chaos, mob-rule, and abuse of power. Having gone to teachers college, I'd hazard that many students would do well to watch this anime, read more

I've seen a lot of overrated and over-hyped animes here, but this has to be one of the few who's underrated, and one that should really be in the Top10 of Top100.

Strange but this anime seems to be the only one that all the people who rated it liked and respect it, even the ones that gave it an average 7 think this is a really good anime, but just gets dragged down by animation and the really depressive story, in their opinion, i happen to like the animation and the story.

Recommendations

Another sci-fi story set in a futuristic society. Students aboard a ship end up having to assume control of it, and although there are some different spins on it, there are staggering amounts of similarities. I think if you enjoy one you'll enjoy the other. Because it is a longer series than Starship Operators they take the time to deal with the nitty gritty like food and water problems and other aspects of life that would be difficult to organize on your own with a bunch of amateurs.
I've been passing this recommendation around in my head for a while and I figured why not put it out there. The similarities might not hit you right off the back, they are structured completely differently, Bokurano is based around small arc for each of the pilots, while Infinite Ryvius focuses on the whole plot, but once you get underneath, they both are very similar.

Both shows present a large cast of unique children placed in a perilous situation against their will or better judgment. But mainly they share the same themes, responsibility, loss of innocence, power, and politics. You get many different ideas on each topic, which is very nice because I can't think of any of the hundreds of characters in either series that are similar.

On an interesting note, you can overlay the music for one on to the other one's OP and they sync pretty well.
