Best mangaka in existence. Quality artwork, brilliant characters, especially Askeladd. Planetes is a masterpiece. Hopefully he gets more recognition with a vinland saga anime in the future.

Planetes is one of the most enjoyable slice of life series I have seen-Likeable characters, a story actually involving space (not just as a background) which has a cathartic ending, beautiful artwork, I could go on. In addition, Sunrise really did justice to his work with the anime adaptation; great production values, not to mention the soundtrack. It truly is a series that stands the test of time and will be remembered.
