Great, a flashback episode of the two least interesting characters… Why bother? I had so much hope… Space Brothers was slowly improving again, so I’m kind of bummed to have seen this episode to be very honest.
The start wasn’t that bad. I witnessed as Mutta didn’t even flinch when Vincent decided to give another one of his stupid speed-tests. It was funny when Mutta didn’t flinch, seeing as he experienced something a lot rougher on the day Hibito finally took off. Now that’s decent comedy that people can laugh at.
I’m a little disappointed in Mutta again though. He wasn’t really worried because he experienced something worse? Dude, you used to design cars, how could anyone that designs cars possibly be afraid of them? He knows how fast they go, so is it because he didn’t trust his life in that old man’s hands? I don’t know…
The rest was kind of an anti-climax. It wasn’t very amusing, it wasn’t really helpful to the story and it was barely entertaining. The only thing that changed was my opinion of Vincent, and that only changed slightly. I, too, would’ve turned out as a tight-ass if all the people around me told me I should aim low and give up on my dreams. I mean, teachers doing that is bad in itself, you need to shoot those teachers on the spot, but it’s quite terrible when their own parents tell them to aim low as well. You’d think that a parent would want nothing more than for their offspring to aim for the top, right? Shame…Read More
It’s really about time the story works itself back up again. It had gotten rather dull and uninteresting lately, so it’s kind of refreshing to see it so lively again. It would be nice to see a few more episodes like this one before they start to bring back recap episodes and/or episodes with crappy comedy in them.
It was nice to see that Mutta, after all this time, landed in a situation that gave him a little edge over everyone else. All of the other astronauts had no idea on how to build a rover. They just went along with it and created a basic model, but it was different in Mutta’s case. He has a history in vehicle manufacturing, which is why he got quite the edge. He came up with an idea that shocked even Pico, a veteran engineer. He decided to use sponge to create their rover’s wheels. Its lighter, reduces some of the impact when landing, plus it’s cheaper. It’s about time that he gets some well-deserved glory instead of more “accidental success”.
Mutta is the reason why Pico actually decided to help out a little bit after all. Mind you, if it were me I would’ve refused no matter what. I’m very stubborn and wouldn’t have allowed that old fart to contribute even it meant failing in the end. If you decide not to be a part of my team then that decision is pretty much permanent.
Even Vincent, or sergeant tight-ass as I would like to call him, got interested in Mutta. I doubt he’s changed his mind about Mutta not being suited to become an astronaut, but at least he shows some interesting now. He’s probably going to do another one of his lets-test-this-poor-fool-out-during-high-speed-driving-test. We’ll see…Read More
I’d like to see more of these episodes. There’s room for improvement, but at least I’m not bored out of my tiny little mind. I’m actually thinking about future events again, which is something I haven’t been doing for quite some time when it comes to Space Brothers.
We all remember that drunk bastard, Pico. He refuses to help Mutta and his team by giving them advice on how to build their own rover. He just gets drunk all day, eats and plays with peanuts. It’s a good thing that Mutta is level-header, because it’s thanks to him that they’re probably going to succeed without the help of that pathetic engineer.
It’s a good thing that Mutta’s so level-header nowadays, plus the fact that he has experience when it comes to designing and building vehicles. This should give them that little push they so desperately need now that they’re stuck with an engineer that doesn’t even want to help out. I wonder… Is that guy getting paid for this?
Let’s quickly focus on Pico; he’s a pathetic drunk with no future. He’s stuck in the past and thinks that it’s his fault that Brian, that famous astronaut, died during his trip back to earth. He was supposed to be the engineer to build him a working parachute system, yet they decided to go with someone else when he made a small mistake during his test. Is that his fault? I don’t think so. His higher-ups were the ones that decided to go with the cheapest method available, right?
Now, I’ve said this before, but I really do think that they focus a bit too much on Mutta’s road to become an astronaut. They’ve made everything harder for him and his team ever since the show began. The only thing that keeps my head up now is the fact that Hibito will soon be coming back to earth using the same method as Brian did. That should prove to be interesting!Read More
Not one of the better episodes so far, but I’m glad we’re finally past all those recap episodes. I mean, why in the hell would they air so many recap episodes after another? To this day I still don’t know why. I guess I’ll never know…
I’m slightly disappointed by the way the story resumed, only slightly. We left off when Mutta and the rest went back to look for Reiji’s cell phone, because he was expecting a call from his NEET brother. That’s when, soon after finding Reiji’s phone, Mutta got knocked out of the ring (so to speak) by a nasty fever. Sure, he got Serika-chan to took care of him, which made him ever so happy, but why now? We had to endure so many recap episodes for this. At least make it more interesting. Don’t put the main character in bed right away, what’s the point?
It’s not all that bad though, we got to meet a new character, probably related to Vincent, that cocky instructor. He, ‘coincidently’, became Mutta’s team engineer. The guy is lazy, annoying and very full of himself. He even had the audacity to fart in front of people whom he had just met, which goes to prove that he’s definitely not Japanese.
I don’t know what to think of that. He seems like he might have some serious skills, but his rotten personality gets in the way of progress. Yet another difficult trial that Mutta will have to conquer, I see… Oh well, I’m pretty sure he’s used to it by now.Read More
Good job on raping Space Brothers even more. I had faith in you, Japan. Last week’s episode was bad, really bad, but I simply knew that you could do worse. I believed in you! Was I right? Of course I was, just look at how crappy this episode turned out to be.
Let’s face it guys; we just spent weeks and weeks watching Mutta’s training, including the many episodes where Hibito prepared himself for his first space mission. We spent weeks on this, people. It’s been only a few weeks, so those memories are still fresh inside our heads. That’s why I can’t understand why they’re airing this many recap episodes.
The manga is far ahead. Hell, it’s out of sight compared to the anime adaption. One recap episode I would’ve understood, but three or more? No way. That’s just horrible. I’ll wait till next week before I start thinking about dropping Space Brothers.Read More
Why don’t you just get it over with and kill me? I feel like I wasted my time with Space Brothers. It’s been nothing but worthless episodes lately, especially with these recap-episodes. Wouldn’t it just be faster to put a gun against my head?
Anyway, it was boring. They expected me to spend 20 minutes watching something I’ve seen only a few weeks ago. We all remember what happened on the moon when. We all remember how Hibito survived and saved his colleague for an untimely death. Seriously, we remember. So my question being; was it really necessary to show it to us again?
I would almost call it insulting. This is nothing short than a waste of time, which is why I skipped through it in under two minutes. I was damned to spend more than two minutes on this episode, period. Better luck next time, Space Brothers. Oh, and don’t you dare to start off another episode with a black dude working out. It wasn’t necessary to focus that much on his bulge, dammit.Read More
What a terrible filler. It was like watching a duplicate episode. It feels as though I’ve wasted a lot time these past few months. My god, Space Brothers is really getting worse. Mark my words, it will soon be cancelled if it goes on like this.
Remember how we spent months and months watching Mutta’s march up the astronaut ladder? We saw how and why he did what he did, only to find out that we have to watch it once more. When is it enough? When will they get rid of the dry, pointless comedy and start taking this a little bit more seriously? I can’t remember the last time I laughed at one of the jokes in this show, they are simply that bad. Things are going downhill really fast. It’s a good thing that they’re still training, because it’s been a pain in the ass lately, especially with that NEET in the picture now.Read More
These past two episodes have been disasters, haven’t they? I can’t believe how little interest I have in Reiji’s little brother. Just get it over with. I can’t stand to watch many more of these episodes with those two in it.
We spent yet another episode watching Reiji’s little brother. What is their angle? Is this supposed to be dramatic? I don’t want to watch a NEET stalk his brother by reading up on latest events via the internet. Nor did I want to watch Reiji, Mutta and everyone to turn back so that Reiji could find his damned phone.
Rather, I don’t understand why Reiji was allowed a phone in the first place. The fact that his brother is a NEET that refuses to leave his room is no excuse to be allowed a phone during survival training. I’m amazed that sergeant dumbass hasn’t reprimanded Reiji for it, providing he wasn’t the one that allowed it in the first place. Please, let next week be different…Read More
