Space Brothers episode 61
Another decent episode this week, how very nice! Space Brothers needs to keep this up, otherwise the anime might actually get cancelled if the ratings drop too much. Just look at what happened to the Beelzebub anime.
I must say that they finally did the comedy right this time. The comedy was still a bit dull at some points, but it wasn’t too bad. It was very subtle and quite funny, which his very hard to do when Mutta’s parents are involved. Her mother’s the problem if you ask me. That character gets really annoying if you see and hear too much of her.
I’m also pleased by the current pace. It’s going very smoothly and they didn’t even end the episode with an annoying cliff-hanger this time. No, they did it quite right. Mutta got a few minutes in the spotlight, his parents, that ugly dog and, of course, Hibito, who walks amongst earthlings once more now that he’s back on earth again.
I started watching Space Brothers because it was an interesting story, I kept watching and writing because you learn a lot about outer space, astronauts and everything else that involves space travel. You could very well say that that’s the reason why I didn’t drop Space Brothers during those last few boring episodes. It may have been dull and boring at times, but the show always tried to teach you a thing or two, and that is why I continue to watch. I can only hope that they can find a proper balance between Mutta and Hibito this time, instead of focussing primarily on Mutta all the time. Would you like to know a bit more about Hibito as well? I’m looking forward to it!
