In an alternate version of the 1960s, two global superpowers have emerged after a savage war: the Zirnitra Union and the United Kingdom of Arnack. East and West are locked in a fierce race to send the first crewed flight into outer space, leading the Union to develop a secret agenda: the Nosferatu Project, which aims to use vampires as spaceflight test subjects. Similar to humans but feared and reviled, vampires are assumed to make the perfect "guinea pigs" for such a dangerous task. Lev Leps, a Union soldier and aspiring cosmonaut, is tasked with overseeing vampire Irina Luminesk aka N44, who has been chosen for the operation–and he can't quite detach his feelings from the vampire girl as planned. Faced with pressure and peril, will either of them manage to fly into the cosmos?

Preliminary (5/58 eps)
Review based on volume 1 (will update in the future):

This is fluff.
Even pretty good fluff, with a tinge of underdeveloped themes.

This story is not meant to depicture the varying facets of human empathy or the lack of it, nor is it about how a human is shaped by their domestic environment and it also isn't about the life of the people dealing with the post-war situation.
This story is simply about cute Irina and "the ol' reliable" Lev who found themselves in a tragic situation, destined to share the same road to make their dreams come true.

Romanticizing the stars, cosmos, and especially the moon is common ...
