When Kamogawa Asumi was just a baby, her mother was grievously injured when a rocket crashed to the ground. Five years later, having been in a coma all the time, Asumi's mother finally dies, and the little girl struggles to come to terms with the death of a mother she barely remembers. In the midst of her turmoil, she meets "Lion-san," a strange figure wearing a lion mask and claiming to be a ghost. Lion-san helps Asumi to bury her mother's ashes, and finally, Asumi reaches her own decision: "When I grow up, I'm going to be a rocket pilot."

Twin Spica is a pretty good anime for young viewers. I say that because there are alot of morals and good values taught in this show. If you don't mind most of that stuff im sure anyone would enjoy this show. The show evolves a young girl named Asumi Kamogawa whos dream is to become an astronaut. The story starts off as a very young Asumi and then progresses forward from there. Although Asumi is a very engeretic and smart little girl, theres more than enough tragic stories in this show to last a lifetime. Which is another point. Even though you will be convinced read more

Futatsu no Spica is great on being something. There are many intertwined connections between characters, extensive backstories and great character moments. But the biggest thing, that is missing, is the conclusion.

Futatsu no Spica covers the first 25 chapters of the manga in 20 episodes. This is roughly 28% of the material, and, thusly, leave many unanswered questions in the end. Not to mention that, especially in the later episodes, some key parts are changed to fit into the anime format. All these changes are mainly made because the anime finished when only 30 chapters were released.

But this wasn't the only issue. As being a drama read more

Twin Spica is about a group of friends that want to become astronauts. However, unlike Stelliva of the Universe, it is more of a slice of life anime and down to earth. For the most part Twin Spica is character driven focusing mainly on Asumi and later on Marika. What differentiates Asumi from other leads in other "HS space dramas" is that she is a very strong willed and determined character despite her diminutive stature. She has gone through a lot and yet has never whined or cried. We are later introduced to her friends when she goes to the read more

I loved this anime.

Story: The storyline is simple, sweet, and straight forward. You can not help getting caught up with it. I do wish they had of carried the story on longer, but the end they chose feels right. The bit in there about the clone I did not really understand its significance; but all and all very enjoyable.

Artwork: I actually really liked the art work for this one. The 'washed' out feel of the backgrounds lend to the slow pace of the story. There is not a lot read more
