After reading the synopsis for Stellvia of the Universe (Uchuu no Stellvia in Japanese) I immediately had to find and watch it. I love storylines about mankind being brought to near extinction by something that could realistically happen, which in the case of Stellvia is a gamma ray burst from a nearby star going supernova. Surprisingly however, the plot premise was the last thing that drew me into Stellvia while I watched it. At first glance Stellvia doesn't look anything like the post apocalyptic anime it advertises itself as, in fact the Earth and the people on it all look pretty damn good considering 99% read more

I LOVED this anime. It had a very unique storyline that kept me interested until the end. There was very few fillers, and the characters are realistic (being that they don't have out of proportion body parts, random personalities).

It has romance, action, unexpected twists, I think it is definitely worth watching but the first episode explains everything so it might be a little boring for some people.

And for those who love space, pretty images of the universe, you'll get a huge dose of it :)

When I first saw the picture and plot line of Uchuu no Stelllvia I though that they didn't match at anything at all and the story was going to be boring and childish. Oh boy,how I was wrong.
Story : 9/10
The plot is simple: mankind is about to be extincted by a huge electromagnetic wave and humanity should stop it by all means possible. Katase Shima,the main character, is a new student at the Stellvia station that must face the challenges of becoming a pilot and at same time,help humanity in this important mission.
What it was only a cliche story about a hero saving mankind became read more
