Space Brothers episode 04

And here we go again. I feel, by the way things are going right now, that the show will be more about Mutta’s training as an astronaut than anything else. That would be so disappointing. I want to see him and the other three characters overcome many hardships and succeed as astronauts. I don’t want to spend a dozen episodes watching how they get trained and whatnot.

I know I just said that, but it just doesn’t seem like it going to end anytime soon. Several people made it through the second phase of the training, and most of them shall be going to the next phase, which will start in a few months, but when will it end? I like the fact that Mutta is going to meet up with his younger brother and train amongst real astronauts, which should theoretically give him an edge during the remaining tests. However, what about his new comrades? Will we follow their training as well? I really think that this training will take up most of the show. The only thing that keeps my hopes up is the fact that the total amount of episodes isn’t known yet. This anime could get twenty-four episodes for all we know.

Anyway, the second phase is over. I noticed how one of those doctors asking Mutta if he discovered any changes during these past few weeks. That question made me think a little about the current situation. I think that it’s safe to say that Mutta got this far by being who he is. Also, I haven’t seen any drastic changes in his personality during these four episodes, so I think we’re good. I too made a similar mistake in school as a kid, and it ended up changing me. But enough depressing bullsh*t for now.

The episode was once again very amusing, not that I expected anything else from Space Brothers. I will stand by what I said though; I don’t want to watch their training for dozens of episodes. I think episode six or seven should be a nice time to finalize their training. Oh, and I haven’t given up on the possibility of a relationship between Mutta and Serika, even though she seems to be more interested in his little brother. It will really turn ugly if Serika-chan ends up with his younger brother.
