Uchuu Kyoudai - Space Brothers


Nanba Mutta, being born on the day called tragedy of Doha, when the whole Japan was saddened by the loss of their soccer team in the World Cup, he was decided that his life would be unlucky and that he would experience many hardships in life. On the other hand, his brother, Nanba Hibito, who was born on the day that Nomo, a baseball player made an accomplishment called no-hitter / shutout, which made the whole Japan cheered for glory. Mutta, was convinced that his brother would be the opposite of him.

In the summer of 2006, They both saw a supposed to be UFO which flied towards the moon. Both amazed and mystified, they decided that they would be astronauts and would step to the moon together. Nineteen years later, Nanba Hibito became a full pledge astronaut and the first Japanese to be assigned to go to the moon, while his brother, Nanaba Mutta, had just been unemployed after headbutting his boss. Desperate about his life, he starts to reminisce about his dream when suddenly one day, he receives a letter from JAXA, saying that he was chosen to be one of the Astronaut candidate. Thus, continuing his dream to reach the moon together with his brother.

Rating: 8 / 10 - Great


I saw this anime, a few months before and because it was tagged as slice of life anime and the style of the drawing looked old style, I didn't really pay any attention, thinking that this would be another boring anime but I was wrong. After watching the first episode, I became really interested and with an added comedy this was surprisingly entertaining.  I personally liked how the story was narrated and the astronaut story was cool, being as a child, I too dreamed of becoming one.

I recommend this anime for people who likes space and had once dreamed of becoming an astronauts or even just people who dreams of achieving their goal in life. This one will certainly be an inspiration.
