But if he has some of the same genes as his brother, his odds will go up. Twin brothers Mark and Scott Kelly are both astronauts, for example.

Opportunity is the right word here. The gene is not that much of an issue.

The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

Fair enough! And you would obviously know better than me ^_^

Wasn't expecting much when I found this anime. Man am I glad I watched the whole first episode through.

It really has the potential to be one of/the best anime for the season.

My 1st anime of the season & I got to say:A very good start.
This seinen slice of life is very interesting :).The soundtrack is very relaxing.We got Sanji's VA doing the MC,so thumbs up.

Oh & Space Brothers is still the best anime ever,in my opinion.Even when competing with Attack on Titan.

Good start. A bit cliche' but I can live with it. I do hope his engineering was one of the deciding factor, that's shows a lot of intelligence.

Have to say, I loved this.

I share so many similarities with the brothers so this anime hit it right at home with me.

5/5 ep. One of my favs this season for sure.

This episode was amazing, and this is definitely my favorite this season thus far. To think I almost let it slip past. It's also the only show that I found myself relating to, with Muta's field of study and the sibling and employment situations.

Very, very impressed with this first episode.
It's been a while since I've watched something like this, and it really surprised me.
I'm really looking forward to more, I hope this show fail at the end though.
I almost never read discussions after I made my post, if you want to reply PM me or post on my profile page.

Wow ... can't believe I'm so late in starting this! I LOVED this episode! The OP and ED were both really cool but I think I like the OP more.
The beginning part gave me SHIVERS it was so amazing. LOVED how the music fit. Also pretty funny in the circumstances of the brothers' births XD So awesome ... I definitely wanted to go to space ... kind of still do, actually! :P
Poor Mutta ... fired from his job while Hibito is successful ... but loved the ending! Ooh, he'll be going to be an astronaut too, if all goes well?! I'm wishing him the absolute best ... it's good that he had his passion re-inspired (lol) from listening to that tape ... "I'll stay one step ahead and go to Mars!" Amazing! :D
I've only downloaded two episodes so far ... I think that's probably a good thing or I'd watch this whole thing MUCH too quickly! ;P

Interesting premise. Art is a bit wacky, but this might be pretty good.
Your mean should be an even bell curve only if you watch every show that comes out. Having a high-slung mean doesn't mean you're rating improperly. It can also mean you're selecting shows well to watch mostly things you enjoy.

Wow, I've found myself a gem of an anime. Great narration, pacing, and very fitting music. Also, I like the comedy. I almost cried near the end. Great start. I love the un-expectancy of this show.

Time to catch up.


watch nodame cantabile

recommend me anything!

Lol, they included Zidane's infamous headbutt into this. Awesome sauce. Too bad Mutta got blacklisted by a lot of companies.

Mutta is pretty awesome so far. I like his personality quite a bit. The setup of this episode was also beautifully presented with realism. Finally picked up this show and I'm glad I did.

Someone suggested this to me, and I'm glad I checked it out. This glimmers with potential.

I think the births set the tone well for Mutta's outlook on life, or at least his feelings of inferiority. The headbutt helped establish what kind of guy he is as well as acting as a source of humor. (The comedy is pretty low key, which I like.) The situation seems quite realistic overall. I'm already enjoying the brother dynamic.

I also like the art. Moe and highly stylized anime has never bothered me, but the more distinctive and somewhat more realistic art style is fitting. The animation was good too- my only (minor) gripe would be that they repeated the UFO scene a bit more than I cared for.

Solid first episode. We can only go up from here, if you know what I mean. ;)

Fantastic start!
Mutta headbutting his superior a la Zidane was hilarious, bad lucks keeps following him
The parent and Hibito helping him out was just sweet

Involving the real history of soccer to the story was great
Off next with Sharon and Serika appearing

I have been recommended to watch this a few times already, but I never got into it due to the lenght of this series
Something similar to "Planetes" is what I had in mind initially
Seriko appearing next looks like Nodame and I have to say to me Space Brother is like the spiritual sequel of "Nodame Cantible" in terms of pace, maturity and chasing goals

Recently I've been watching about a dozen dubbed when ED5 was played and that song is the best I've heard along with this first OP
The Arc was great as well, since I don't want to reveal much I have to say it was certainly ahead of time with the worldwide hype this Summer
There are a lot of Flashbacks like Naruto though which isn't that annoying with the slow pace

Time to catch up till the end

Unicorn - Feel So Moon, full lenght vevo, OP1

Unicorn x Space Brothers 'Feel So Moon' the making of

Looks interesting but I'm hoping the whole alien thing doesn't affect it negatively if they do end up encountering anything.

I'm think I'm gonna love this series. First episode was very good. Both funny and kind of sad. ;)

Episode 01 - Little Brother Hibito and Big Brother Mutta:

The intro says that Hibito was destined to greatness and Mutta doesn't.

Year 2025 Hibito was selected for a mission to the moon with the objective of the Moon colonization and Mutta lost his work from a automobile manufacturer because he headbutt his supervisor (like zidane)

Interesting start, although i think the anime will waste a lot of time on useless stuff like any other Slice of Life, except this time it looks more mature.

Good episode.

Good start! Excited for the future. I wonder what the whole ufo thing is about and if the show is gonna be sci fi.

A pretty interesting first episode. I have mixed feelings about the constant time skipping around but it worked out in the end. I'm gonna keep watching. I wanna see where this goes.
