not reading any comments before me :) no spoilers!

this show is so interesting how there's so much exploration involved and we even have a planet that has a plant that acts as the "antagonist" rather than a person.

i think this confirms yunhua isn't a villain? she's way too weak to be one.

☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆


watch nodame cantabile

recommend me anything!

the premise of traveling between planets was an interesting one...and some of the characters are ok... but some stuff, specially the way they found the cure plant, was just too much... and since i need to stop watching so many seasonals at the same time, this is the 1st sacrifice lol

dropped. 4/10

at least my experience with this anime ended with a very pretty song by the chinese girl, will save it as a nice memory from this anime lol

at this point the plot of the show hasn't been revealed so you have no idea whats actually going on it will become more apparent in ep 7 and 8

Great episode, as always. I really like the design of the planet. It was nice to see Yunha get some character development, I hope all of the characters will also get their chance to develop as well. Yunha isn't the most well structured character in existence, but I still like her. The Gruppies were really cute and funny.

That was painful to watch. Some of the writing decisions are really questionable. How does an intelligent group of teens literally fighting for survival on an unknown planet look at what they assume is a plant, surrounded by dead animals no less, spewing black mist and think "haha lemme just breathe that shit in"?

Some more shitty comedy, campy drama, annoying characters and convenient plot points(animals not fleeing the toxic environs, 'medicine mushrooms', wild animals that apparently take 1 second to tame)

But maybe this was the first episode where I liked the visuals. The grainy bleaky world meshed with the colours well, combined with the classic art style to create an old Western cartoon/A Little Prince vibe. Liked the music to go with it too(outside of Hayamin's unfortunate singing that is)

Lmao at Zack in the beginning of the episode, i thought it would be one of those cliche scenes where the girl just slaps the guy but to my surprise it was an improved version.

Yunha's voice is really beautiful-,, her mother is just a shitty parent.
She took her daughter's dream way just to keep her own 'image' and now Yunha is super insecure :/

About the traitor topic, until episode 3 i was beting on Charce but now i find Aries a little more suspicious.
Reason being that it finally hit me she is writing her own log of their 'adventure' back home, but is it for her to keep herself or to show someone else..?

Nah.

Haikyuu is shonen

Fairy Tail is shonen

Kuroko no Basket is shonen

Obviously this is the type of shonen I'm talking about. Do I really have to put a disclaimer every single time so that people would not misinterpret what I said and use it against me?



Haiku is a sports show, same as Kuroko no Basket. Fairy Tail is an action show, but mostly know as battle shonen. All those titles have their own predominant genre, their demographic is the same, teenagers AKA shonen, but that's not the same your previous statement that shonen has to be the run of the mill of mediocrisy some or even most of it's titles are, therefore people should just be conformist and expect the same thing over and over and not complain about it.

And yes, you have to state wich shows you're talking about, you're not some celebrity in order for some of us know all about your history and tendencies

ExplodingGirl said:



Duh. Of course I know. I've been here longer than you.

Also tell that to MAL.


Well thank you for your uncalled insults.


That just means you've been an ignorant far too long and you haven't even wandered off elsewhere to see if what MAL states is aright, wich it doesn't. MAL mixes "genres" with "demographics", where other sites uses "tags" instead of spreading misinformation by claiming that a demographic is the same as a genre. MAL is also being incredibly slow updating characters and synopses this season, wich makes it even less reliable.

Episode was alright. The mushroom thing was interesting. Yunhua got some development after a few bits of teasing in the past episodes.

People seem to like to criticise a shounen for being unrealistic and childish. I don't know what people are expecting out of this.


The problem is some of the unrealistic things are written for convenience.

For example; those characters outside the spaceship (except Astra and YunHua) doesn't even bother to wear spaceshuits, let alone the helmet (understandable, but still risky). They've encountered the weird orb twice which at first time, it literally engulf them in and then spat them out in space. What guaranteed it doesn't happen on this planet?
And without that particular precaution, they unnecessarily got sick because of this mushroom spores, just simply to create tension.

This is no rocket science (which I think Zack could solve), just common sense.

so what is the conclusion of yunhua character development, the end so anticlimatic.

also how the antidote appear? it detect a dying creature for it to pop? or because of the sing?

medical herb pops in case of a dying organism should the plant already have enough nutrition at that point in time

I found this episode to be ridiculous. If the medicine mushrooms had not grown in response to his exposure to the spores and the creature had not carried him back they all would died
her singing while everyone died may have made her feel better but it did not help anyone

I like the concept of this anime I really liked the two first episode but this one is just ridiculous. There is so many stupid things in it that I had to take of my headphone multiple time to be able to not hear what they said or did. Yes when something in an anime is so stupid that it annoys me I take off my headphones and only read the subtitles during the scene in question. It calms me.

I like the robotic sound effect when the glasses dude saw her naked. I expected him to just calmly and emotionlessly close the door, dude just straight up walked in.

Anyway, shy girl is the focus of this planet, I knew she was going to be after that other dude called her useless, and I knew the moment that other dude said she would eat a lot that she would try to leave the ship. Yunhua... no clue how to pronounce that name. Aye, yeah!

Also, I'll never understand why people look for so much logic and reason in a show that delves so far into fantasy but that's just me. I think the mushrooms are a really cool idea.

And the losing streak continues. I think that there are many characters just for 12 episodes. For example, Yunhua seems incredibly misplaced in this type of show.

Besides the unnecessary fanservice from the beginning, to me, that plant is so stupid to produce an antidote.

They should've just kept it simple and make the plant use the antidote as a lure. Instead they thought they were clever by creating a plant that rewards its next meal for perseverance. That's not usually how nature works (yes it's an alien planet but tou can olny stetch things so far before you break the suspension of disbelief.) Instead they wanted to showcase spiky haired protag's "resolve" which relied to heavily on plot armor rather than smarts or even coherent coincidence. And the singing? I guess it gave comfort to those who holding on for dear life but it felt jaring and out of place. Also why did big boob's mom chaste her so? See seemed at least talented enough to exelle at something. Ganguro girl at least had a workaholic parent and they could explain her neglect... I dunno maybe they'll flesh that out soon enough. Right now she seems to have an abusive parent for the sake of having an abusive parent. I could get it if the parent didn't see the use of singing and trued to force her down another path. Either way perhaps we haven't crossed that bridge just yet. The bright and chipper part of the show is getting stale. I'm not looking for Re:Zero edge but I'm also not looking for the Magic schoolbus the anime either.

Oh, look, that giant unknown plant/mushroom is releasing spores! They can't possibly be harmless to humans! Let's keep our helmets off! Gotta breath 'em all!
Maybe they played to much of Mario lol.

Always wanted to hear how'd they do the singing when I read the manga and after hearing it, I'd say it was pretty good

Seriously so many people in this forum are dumb as hell and trying to bring logic into this series like theirs literally a show this season about fire fighters fighting fire with actual fire and no one is questioning that so how is it so hard to understand that this is anime and not everything has to be fucking realistic and not everything needs to be questioned

Astra Lost in Space delivers yet another amazing episode! Our merry band of space adventurers reaches planet Shummoor, and sure enough, they find another trouble in their journey home. While Kanata continues to be the main hero, Yunhua also gets her time in the sun. This episode was heavy on character development for Yunhua, and as a whole, the show has kept a pretty good balance between the main story and the individual character arcs. While traitor subplot takes kind of a backseat, the show manages to be interesting without it. Ultimately, Astra Lost in Space will stand or fall by the strength of its characters and narrative, so I'm hopeful that the show will develop this aspects to their fullest potential show.

We've finally learned a little more about Yun Hua. She had a horrible mother, who is responsible for her shyness, and pessimism. Thankfully, Kanata made her realize that her mother was wrong, and now she's finally breaking out of her shell.

So this is ユンファ's episode? I figured it was coming at some point. The whole thing was overly dramatic to the point of not being believable. I don't think parents would ever talk to their kids that way, and certain things like growing out bangs to cover her face just seemed stupid. Then her redemption of proving herself and helping the others was... wait that didn't even really happen. She just sung a song and that's it. Some redemption. That being said I don't hate her, I actually kind of like her. Unfortunate she lost her glasses though, she looked better with them, hopefully she brings them back. Putting her aside, the rest of the episode, the new planet, the mushroom planet, was pretty cool, I liked it. The creative planets are the highlight of the show for me and this one was particularly interesting because it was rooted in evolution and it wasn't just incoherent designs for the sake of being creative. Average episode overall.

I was secretly thinking Yunhua's singing is gonna cure everyone, which would have been the campiest thing ever. If I were those kids, though, I'd keep my helmet on at all times. You never know what sorts of environmental hazards are present in uncharted planets.

Now I'm pretty sure the traitor is Ulgar.

That is why Kanata opened is helmet? Because that plant just exposes the antidote if something close to her demonstrate symptoms? How that even works? They can measure vital signals? lol xD

Kanata betting on that was.... +_+

Also, taking that into consideration, there is a limit to how many antidotes those mushrooms can produce? Otherwise all poised creatures would get healed by eating the antidotes, and that goes exactly against what those mushrooms want, which is corpses close to them.

Anyway... haha I think I just need to accept all of this and move on? xD

I really liked this episode!! It made me feel like I was watching an episode of star trek. Landing party comprised of Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Scotty, and some random crewman lands on a planet and subsequently ends up in fatal trouble only to find a way out when everything seems lost. Predictable but awesome all the same.
I also liked the thought that went into making the planet world and I can't wait to land on more planets like that.
Most of all, Yunhua's singing voice is brilliant.

Uhh, this was hard to sit through, this show is terrible.

The girl is suffering from low self-esteem, oh my, totally didn't see that coming! Everyone got poisoned, but fortunately there are flowers that will cure everyone.

"Yummy!" turned into Funi's voice
I've been thinking this since episode 1 but Aries is kind of like Akari from Aria.
Wow Yunhua's mother is trashy.
I felt proud of her for finding the cure. A lot rests on her now that even Kanata has fainted. Oh, she sang to cheer everyone up. I wonder if it reached Kanata though, I don't feel it did, but still helped others so that counts. I think she's my favorite character in the series now.

Another good episode, the birds were cute tho, like chocobo's haha.

Hmm it seems, another specialty of the members revealed after a marksman, doctor.craftsman, etc... actually Yunhua wasn't useless at all she is a genius too, that golden voice..
that's great she helped the others with her soothing voice.

I wonder if the ones who sent them were actually jealous of their intellect.....
