Year 2080, finally they've arrive at Jupiter
Hachimaki delivers his speech after arriving at Jupiter, and satisfied with what he has now

*I learned that I could't stop loving people*

P.S What a nice ending and still a lot to show but I think this is the end of Planetes, I hope to see part 2 or even one-shot manga that he returned and meet with his old crew

and a bit of the future article

Really good ending. Surprised at just how different the manga and anime are.

this final chapter made me contemplate becoming a christian again but then i had to stop myself and realize that this is a work of fiction. this is probably the most realistic manga i have ever read i just wish Yukimura made just one more chapter.

Wow. I just finished this. It's so different from the anime. The manga is much more about asking some of the big questions in life. What are we doing in this world? What do we do with our lives? And to it, Yukimura came up with what is perhaps a predictable yet maybe the only answer and that is to love each other.

Yukimura is one great mangaka. I hope that he writes many more great stories like this one.

there is an extra chapter, that was released in volume 3, so maybe that was included in the chapter count

Definitely one of the best manga I've ever read.

Some great things here, others not so great...

Fee in particular was an awesome character which an intriguing personality and backstory and I like the philosophical questions scattered throughout but I didn't enjoy anything else in this manga past that.

Volume 2 was such a mess man (omnibus) volume one was was great and i will always remember this series because of it, but like seriously, half of volume two couldve been completely removed, i bought it off amazon and caught a glimpse of a review saying "Starts strong, goes out with a whimper" and i was hoping that it just his personal opinion but he was right, still it was worth the read just because of how great volume one was.

Man, this blew me away from beginning to end. I can only hope we're competent enough to get there by 2080.

I read the last chapter, thinking that there would be a next one, so the ending definitely caught me off guard. The ending was still touching when I had to go back to read it again lol

My favorite part of this was the character development, especially with Hachimaki and Fee, especially considering that this manga was so short.

Props to the book for diversity too (but I suppose it's a given, considering this is a manga about space). It's really nice how a Japanese author touched on discrimination in America, and it would've probably been around the ~2040s (considering fee is about forty at the end of the book?). I'm really glad that he actually acknowledges it and doesn't brush off discrimination as nonexistent after the civil rights era.

I feel like they're going to get stuck inside the Von Braun for more than seven years lol

How cool would it have been the hear Louis Armstrong in an anime.
Hachi and Ai both taught each other something. It’s been a really great read. I was annoyed by the fact the earliest chapters didn’t seem to be in order, that being said I really like the chapters where a character’s past contrasts with their present. I like that more characters get focus more than just once or not at all.

So the journey to Jupiter chapters interlaced with what happens when Hachi's away (an actual space war and eccentric crewmember Baron).
