Space Brothers episode 07

I was planning on posting about Acchi Kocchi first, but that anime seems to be arriving later every week. I don’t know what’s going on with that show. Perhaps the fansubbers are losing interest? Either way, it is interfering with my schedule, and I can’t allow that. I think I’m moving Acchi Kocchi to Monday permanently.

Anyway, moving on to this week’s Space Brothers. There are a lot of things I could say about this week’s episode, and all of it would be spot-on, but I won’t. I’ll keep it simple and direct. Mutta has been working very hard on becoming an astronaut. He faced many hardships and it might all have been for nothing, because the higher-ups at JAXA are seriously considering on dropping him from the program. They have to make a choice, because only the best of the best are allowed to stay. This led to Mutta falling back to his old “rolling Mutta” ways. I’m actually fine with that. The guy needs to have a way to relieve himself of that stress.

It all revolves around that one incident with Mutta’s old boss. So he head butted the guy because he was making fun of his younger brother, who cares? I would have done the same thing if I were in his shoes. You have to uphold a certain morale code as a boss. Talking about one’s family is a definite no-no. Masa agrees with that, probably, which is why he tried everything to help out Mutta. It’s those other JAXA higher-ups that are the problem. They claim that they don’t want any personal emotions involved when picking the best candidates, but it seems like some of them have something against Mutta, which means that their votes are based on their personal preferences as well.

But something always comes up. Mutta has been so depressed and scared of what might happen that he couldn’t even see what was right in front of him; opportunities further than the eye could see. He has faced many problems, but he finally got a chance to make things right, to tip the scales back to his favour. All he has to do is apprehend that criminal with the fire extinguisher and become a local hero.

I don’t know for sure, but I honestly think that the next episode is going to be epic. Mutta has one hell of a fine memory, so he probably memorized the inside of that restaurant already, allowing him to move freely without being able to see clearly. All he has to do now is catch that guy and hand him over to the authorities to become a local hero. Go afro-man, go!
