I first started watching the first four episodes of this anime at AX (Anime Expo 2012) with no hopes for this anime but oh boy... I was proved wrong. Throughout my life I always watched shoujo, shounen, mecha, adventure etc.
From the fact that I only considering watching those genres it came to my judgement when it I was watching Uchuu Kyoudai at AX.
As human beings, everybody
DO NOT JUDGE A BOOK BY IT'S COVER! ~Lesson learned~ -.-
Uchuu Kyoudai (Space Brothers in English) was obviously not one of those animes that wasn't involved with "destruction of the world" but it was about Mutta (protagonist) keeping his promise to his younger brother, Hibito, in becoming a astronaut like Hibito and go to Mars.
Story/ Plot OVERALL: 10
The story is really inspiring, and heart warming. The main protagonist, Mutta, is just a average man with talent that recognized in his profession as a car builder but later because of his boss insult to his younger brother, Hibito, Mutta now was living with his parents with no job.
Realizing that he was jobless he sets out to find another job. Hearing from his parents what happen to Mutta, Hibito reached out to Mutta by suggesting that Mutta should keep his promise to his younger brother and enter the astronaut training program. With many fail attempts, Mutta finally take his brother's advice and sets out to the astronaut training program and this is when the story begins...
Characters OVERALL: 10
Perfect! There are various types of characters that you get to see in this anime.
A snotty genius, a quiet thinker, a bright positive leader, etc. Each character makes this anime quite fulfilling.
Each character that Mutta meets has a big significance to the story and it gives that slight tingling feeling of curiosity whose going to achieve their goals. As Mutta met other characters in the story it gives him more motivation in passing the astronaut training program but as he meets more characters he, sometimes, doubts himself and ask himself "Do I have what it takes to become a astronaut? Do I have the right to become an astronaut?" as he goes along with the astronaut training program he becomes more determine and to realization that he wants this dream to become an reality.
Music/ Sound OVERALL: 10
It is well done. The soundtracks plays a major role of the anime that gives the scenes the tension and passion that it needs! Well done!
Art OVERALL: 10
Reasonable. I'm glad that this anime does not have any characters that has pink hair with green eyes or women with huge over-sized breasts. To be honest, I'm sick of it... get real.
I cannot explain what my thoughts are of this art. :)
To wrap this review:
I would like to say that so far (as the episodes will come) I am glad that my little sister dragged me to watch this anime at AX. It is very enjoyable and inspiring. I would highly recommend it to anyone.
It is a joy to watch! read more
