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."

All these changes are mainly made because the anime finished when only 30 chapters were released.

Twin Spica made for a solid watch thanks to its focus on Asumi and the various characters that are a part of her life in the girl's dream of wanting to be an astronaut. The anime appears to take place in the near-future considering Japan's astronautical advances have led it to just start appointing younger astronauts for the journey up in space. In this case, Asumi and a number of students her age have enrolled at a space school that recently started up where they are trained in understanding all that is needed to be known about living in space and dealing with differing situations ...
