The year is 2061, when space travel is now possible and commercially viable, and the students of Caird High School embark on their Planet Camp.

But soon after Group B5 arrived at their planetary camp site, a mysterious and unforeseen sentient light sphere warps its 9 members into outer space, stranding them 5012 light years away from their home planet.

With the discovery of an old, unmanned spaceship nearby, the students must stay strong, manage their limited resources and remain united in the darkness of space, so that all of them can survive their long and likely perilous trek back home aboard the Astra.

Kanata no Astra is something that easily go under radar because of the dull poster, unattractive plot with generic shounen characters that has personalities that everyone can deduce. However, it is something done damn right.

It has a simple beginning. Everyone is lost in space, with only a deserted spaceship. It was, literally in the middle of nowhere and the studio excels in showing this scenario. With the blend of shivering tracks and chocking atmosphere, the main-shounen genre has slipped in yet another sub-thriller inside to send chills down your spine. The set up of ambience is elevated accordingly as the events unfold one after another, read more

Okay, my first ever review. Simple yet effective introduction, Kanata no Astra throws you into the survival styled environment straight away. Art is consistent and the story's pacing varies, which is good as it helps important scenes stand out more. You could argue that some of the characters are very cliche such as the tanned girl or the girl with glasses, but it helps balance the cast as the other characters are very complex, mainly Aries as she is quite meticulous. Oh yeah, MC is also very likable even though he looks like Yo Shindo (earthquake guy from MHA) with a scar on his nose. read more

Now, This will be my first ever review so please bear with me here.

Kanata no Astra is anime that has been overshadowed by the typical cliche seasonal isekai anime that get churned out every season like butter. which, in turn, has made it go unnoticed by most viewers this term. But, I must admit, that isn't the only reason why it might go unnoticed. when I had originally seen the trailer for this anime I was slightly interested in it but had no strong desire to watch it. The concept seemed interesting but not enough for me to be pulled in.

However, when I read more

For now, 7 eps watched, I would go for a 9 everywhere. The anime seems a bit dumb at first with absolutely horrible physic's law bendings etc, but It quickly proves itself to be really really nice. Maybe I'll rate it 10 when finished, but for now I want to see if it keeps everything fine.
I usually write long reviews, but I prefer staying short so you don't read too much and go see it.

Story : Well, there is a 10 to put here, at least for originality, and because story is quite well done and coherent with itself, while being OMG twisted.
