My first kiss with her was interrupted by my brother's rocket. Blargh! Great episode, another funny one that manages to make Yuri cheerful, and develop a relationship I'm sure a lot of people have been waiting for. Waiting for this next seemingly juicy episode ;D

That romance development between hachimaki and Tanabae is going to cause some problems when they get back to the station...this should be interesting to see.

Well well well!

So Hachi and Tanabe are going to get themselves in more awkward situations if they dont confront this! And Yuri seems to have finally put the sadness of his past with his wife fully behind him now! Yey!

It was nice to see Fee with family, and the two managers too! And whats the deal with Edal the temp and her kinky outfit? Damn man, we need to know a little more about her!

All of these episodes have been beyond great.

Nice little romantic development here for Tanabe and Hachi.

That was a pretty enjoyable episode actually. The relationship between Hoshino and Tanabe is turning out pretty nicely, they even almost kissed! A bit random, but still nice. :)

Nice episode, a bit sad about the compass but it seems with that happening he managed to overcome it! Great episode either way!

Yeah . . . Think they are implying that he is moving on, however I probably would have just not quit and remained stuck in the past but at the same time keep the compass, even if it was all broken.

Also, wouldn't shooting rockets like that be illegal for many reasons? A) Dangerous to people around the area, B) Dangerous to ships entering space, C) Becomes space debris once it leaves the atmosphere.

Makes me feel a little depressed and futile that I'm almost 23 years old and I'm very impractical. And Hachi's younger brother is already a gifted little guy at almost 14. Nonetheless this is a great episode with a lot of life's morals.

yea, this seemed very unrealistic in an otherwise fairly grounded sci-fi anime

oh well

What a FANTASTIC episode. And this episode is thanks to Fee. FINALLY Hachi and Tanabe are starting to recognise their feelings. Sheeeit. And then we have Yuri being Yuri.

It's hard to turn the page, especially when you find the thing you vowed to give your life for. But he did it like a champ. Yuri is such a stupidly sexy motherfucker.
He also unknowingly cockblocker Hachi and Ai. Poor them, it will probably take a long time before they get this close again. You could say that it was all about circumstances.

They are spending a vacation on earth. Hachimaki is visiting his parents and Tanabe and Yuri are joining him on that. Tanabe and Hachi are getting pretty close. Contrary to that Hachi doesn't seem to get along with his brother, Kyutaro.

Kyutaro is trying to launch his own rockets but failed so far. With the help from Yuri he is getting better and better.

Really heartwarming to see the other crewmember visiting their family as well.

Kyutaro almost hit the spacecraft with his rocket. That seemed dangerous!

The show has improved a lot from its wretched beginning; that's for sure. I'm not crazy about this utopian no-borders nonsense, but we'll see where they go with it.

I loved this episode so much that I can't even.

Yuri, after long years of searching and mourning, was able to find his wife's memento. Then he felt like he had 'lost' his reason to be in space, but thanks to a meeting he had on Earth he was able to sort his feelings, and move on.

Kyutaro, Hachimaki's younger brother, was really cool! He is trying his best to achieve his dream, he is hardworking, smart, and somehow he attracted Yuri's attention and help. Their blooming friendship was the best part of this. Yuri helped him with his knowledge, and experience, and Kyutaro was able to make his rocket fly in the end, he even helped Yuri to move on by accidentally ruining his compass. He really wasn't a kid though, he saw through Yuri's lies, and knew that he had broken something important, I liked this too. Yuri was full of doubts when he was younger, so maybe Kyutaro's straightforwardness was what caught his attention. I hope he will be able to reach space.

My only nitpick here is with Hachimaki, and Tanabe. Just a episode ago he was calling her weird and didn't even see her as a woman, but now, all of sudden, because of a commentary made by an old friend, he got conscious of her, and almost kissed her. I'm alright with their relationship being developed, but it would've been better if this transition of feelings was more subtle, and progressive instead of coming out of nowhere.

At least they get a vacation now after saving ISPV7

Notice Ai is the one that protects Hachi from the rocket, it not only shows how much she cares for him but how strong and capable she has grown.

During the montage, I wonder what Ai's parents must be thinking seeing Hachi on the screen.

This was by far one of my favorite episodes of the series. I love how Yuri came to terms with lack of boundaries between things we perccive as clear-cut and how he could go beyond his attachment to the compass of his late wife. Truly a heartwarming story!
