Space Brothers episode 02

That’s right, you see what you see. I’ve decided that Space Brothers is the first one amongst the spring anime that I will write about. I found the first two episodes very interesting, so why not? It’s a lot better than those predictable anime where you already know that the main character is going to win pretty much everything.

Anyhow, I once again liked the second episode. Mutta, the older brother and one of the show’s main characters, wanted to find his real self again. I’m not surprised, going from car manufacturing to space travel is a huge change, especially when you’re not getting any younger. It seems that he used to be quite the hard worker and space fanatic, so I wonder where it all went wrong. He used to pick the hardest paths in order to gain an edge on his little brother. To think that such a person, who used to be so successful in his own field, grew up to be like this; a thirty-one year old man that went back to live with his parents. Poor guy…

However, things soon changed when he decided to take that JAXA, the show’s version for NASA, test and passed the first one. He was very happy, and I actually think he deserved it. The second test is what intrigued me the most. It was supposed to be an ordinary interview, but one of those higher-ups decided to sabotage the chair a little bit, just to see what people going to do. Apparently only three people noticed it, one of which is Mutta, but he was the only one that did anything about it. Mutta sat in a strange position during the entire interview, hoping that he would manage to put that loose screw back in there. That was pretty interesting, seriously.

I’m not going to lie; I smiled during that time. I believe his ability, the ability to see these types of structural flaws, is going to help him a long way in his quest to become an astronaut. I’m just happy that he’s not alone. It seems he made some friends, one of which, an interesting woman, he still has to approach. What a fool he is, he got love-struck the moment he laid eyes on her. I hope this won’t affect his performance.

I, just like that higher-up that deliberately sabotaged that chair, have high hopes for Mutta. I can’t wait to see what will happen next. I knew that this show would be interesting! Also, I am very happy to see that one of the more known fansubbers have decided to sub this show, love it!
