Moonlight Mile is a series about these bros who are the manliest men ever. They casually climb on mount Everest without extra oxygen (they would have done it without clothes too, but were too bored to take them off), pilot fighter jets, master everything they do, touch or hear about, fuck every (hot) girl around and become the coolest and most popular pair in town no matter where they go. Then they be like fuck this isn't enough and decide to become astronauts.

That's pretty much it.

They do bang a lot and there is no censored version available. It's nipples or GTFO. The characters read more

Moonlight Mile is focused on two mountain climbers who meet one another during a climb up Mount Everest and make a challenge to one another to see who can make it onto the moon first. The series then focuses on the different journeys both men make to accomplish their goal of trying to land upon the moon first with Gorou being a Japanese engineer and Woodbridge being among the ranks of the American military. The biggest gripe I have with this series as a whole is that I could care less for both Gorou and Woodbridge as characters. Gorou gets quite a bit of focus read more

Moonlight Mile follows the seperate stories of Goro Saruwatari and Jack F. Woodbridge a.k.a. Lostman as they try to get into space after both conquer Mount Everest.

The show is very mature and uses persistent strong language as well as some really unnecessary sex scenes, although considering the manga it's based on, there was definitely going to be some sex scenes.

Story: I don't find the story very original this is a show that generally follows the format of Best friends climb mountain together, and then best friends make a pact to go into space. How many times has that been done, at times it feels as read more
