Awwww, brotherhood and determination are beautiful. Apo is awesome.

Sometimes I got stunned when realizing how similar Uchuu Kyoudai's character design is to Urasawa Naoki's.

"You're supposed to be my rival. You're no fun now." Oww, that was harsh.
Anyway, it's good that they cleared things up at the end. Mutta is ready to compete with his brother again though the last bit of the episode seems to indicate some obstacles to come...

And the dog is really cute!

Great episode again! I can't believe I even like Apo -_-'

The dog is my favorite character in this anime!!! I f*cking love Appo! So cute and funny, i wanna hug him! Jesus! It's a dog! xD

Totally love the brothers' relationship with each other. And we had a little fanservise xD.

And nice episode. Gotta love Hibito... I kinda laughed at his English, especially compared to Mutta's. That pug chasing Mutta was win. XD

This show is so lax and funny.

I love that Mutta's a perfectionist. I'm the same, except I would like a plant in my room... but... I can't even raise cacti. >>

One of my favorites this season. <3

5/5

This episode went beyond my expectations in they way their brotherly interaction was portrayed.
And to echo everyone else, Apo is the cutest thing.

like the intro to this ep was cute and funny, and to see hibito and mutta together again was awesome and seeing the whole big brother.little bro rivalry was quite funny, but you can still see hibito looking up to mutta and wanting mutta and him to be on the same grounds and achieve their Dream which is great. hope they dont really cut mutta he been working so hard cut the other guy

10/10

No NASA, but more characterization for Mutta, so I'm happy.

Great episode.
Lol That Apo sure is something. Glad to see that Mutta got his spirit back though and plans to strive for his goal and be a worthy rival for his brother, but man they don't leave room for suspense at the end! lol The guy flat out says he immediately wants to cut Mutta from the program!
Can't wait for next week!
Touch me, you filthy casual~

I'm not a fan of pugs, but at least he was a good distraction from Mutta being such a downer for most of the episode. At least at the end he got himself back on track.

And that reminds me - I need to go water my plants.

This episode was a great representation of how I feel about this series. I like it, I don't know why I like it or why I even care about the next episode, but I'm pretty excited for the next episode. Each week, I kinda wait a bit after I download this to watch it, unlike my other shows where I'll usually watch immediately after I download, because I'm thinking, "meh, I won't like this". And then I watch it and I'm enjoying it. I don't even know. This was a good episode, but I'm waiting for Mutta to get back so he can go be an astronaut with the girl (forgot her damned name) and bring in some romance. As was stated previously, I don't think he'll get cut, I mean, it's Space Brothers, not Space Brother.

I do that too with some shows.

And yea there's no way he'll be cut. It's just there to add tension to the plot. He'll be accepted one way or another.

That was a nice ep. Didn't like it as much as some of the earlier episodes but it was still nice and I can see where it's going.

I'm pretty sure Mutta read through most or the entire training manual while Hibito was out. I don't think Mutta would've wasted an entire day just being stubborn/lazy.

I also think the episode was also hinting that Mutta has that something Hibito doesn't. Hibito "has a screw loose", is missing that something, which is apparently his attention to detail.

Mutta has that attention to fine detail. It clearly showed it this episode and also that one time during the interview where he noticed the loose screw in the chair and tried screwing it in the entire episode. Pretty sure his attention to fine detail will ensure him to pass the exams and eventually become an astronaut, I mean that's a really good trait to have.

Cliffhanger was all like hinting that Mutta is going to be cut, but watch like RIGHT at the start of the next episode, an instructor is going to be like WAIT I LIKE HIM. XD

Anyways 4/5. My two cents. :)

Oh, no, I hope he doesn't get cut, not from a shitty recommendation. That boss had it coming anyway. >.<

Maaaan, Hibito's toned! =^^=

I really love Mutta and Hibito's relationship. They're always raggin on each other about this and that. They're both cocky in their own way, but the best part is their competition. Can't wait to see them both at the space center tomorrow with all the hands-on training. ^^=

Because everyone in America speaks in Japanese. Lawl.
I want to get a pug just so I can name it Apo <3

Edit: at the end it shows Mutta's birth year as 1993... Mutta is younger than me O_O;

Apo has a hearth on the side, nice detail.
Was some sort of introduction imo, previous episodes were better.
Next episode seems to be very story-centered, I'm looking forward to it.
I almost never read discussions after I made my post, if you want to reply PM me or post on my profile page.

Good episode Apo chase scene was funny as hell xD
This series keeps on being good (:
Cliffhanger for the next episode so hopefully Mutta can prove a way to show that he had a reason for doing that because the boss insulted his dreams and his brother.

"Every day that Hibito spent alone, certain that you would join him was a day of missing for him." T___T

The scene at the hot dog stand with the old couple was wonderful. I am so happy I read a tweet mentioning this show and decided to pick it up. Even if I feel down, the brothers always manage to give me a smile. :D

Another amazingly beautiful episode ♥ I love this show so much! :3
Haha wtf that dog XD Apo IS kind of a weird name ... :P I LOVED how Mutta came and instantly saw things about Hibito like the cactus and the curtain ring ahahaha XD Love that kind of thing ;P
Mm, I guess Hibito still isn't that good at English XD Mutta is better than him in the end ... that note was SUPER cute though :3
I love their childhood flashbacks. Tricky Mutta ... distracting Hibito with the scenery so you could get ahead! :P I guess you can't do that now ... you have to catch up to him first before passing him! ;P Loved the thing with his thumb ... ah, it IS rather fun to do that huh?
Glad he got his inspiration back with that old couple (kind of). What they said about Hibito missing him was SO sweet T_T Y U GIVE ME SO MANY FEELZ D; Hibito noticed him looking at the training manuals too huh ...
Well crap, next episode doesn't look too good for Mutta ... the interviewer doesn't like him and his former boss gave them a call wtf D: Noooo, don't give up! Hang in there :(

Apo was annoying for all of three seconds before becoming hilarious. It didn't take much to win me over. ♥

I feel bad for Hibito. It seems like he misses having Mutta around.

It felt a little weird seeing an American suburb in an anime, but that was interesting. Unless it's an expat neighborhood, though, it seems unusual that the neighbors would speak Japanese.

Nice episode overall.

Well, Mutta has to get through for the sake of the plot, right? Well, maybe the anime will surprise me. Who knows.
