Planetes, Uchuu Kyoudai Recommendations
Featuring the journey to space, Planetes and Uchuu Kyoudai (Space Brothers) have distinct realism in their perspective stories. The characters are also relatable with genuine sense of humor and inspiration to make their dream into a reality. The stories of both series indeed also have great development along with its characters. I recommend both series for anyone interested in an insightful and well crafted story with credible characters.
Space themed with in-depth, believable characters. Interesting stories, and also very informative about space exploration.
Neither of these anime try to do too much in each episode; they do well in fitting meaningful storytelling into each episode without making you watch a 3-episode arc about a single character's motivations.
The settings are diverse; the subject matter is interesting. Uchuu Kyoudai is less fanciful, both in the sense that it's realistic, rather than truly sci-fi, and in the sense that the characters feel more like real, if eccentric people, but for both space geeks and fans of genuine, interesting and slow-burning drama it's a must.
If you love the space you gonna like to go up, and if you don't love it you gonna love it. Nearly futurist, realist and more human than a lot of animes. (sorry if I made a misstake, I'm not god with english but I hope you enjoy :)
Both anime is quite similar that the main character trying to achieve his dreams that going to other planet
