Space Brothers episode 83
Good episode. Good, but very aggravating. I kind of already had this feeling that it would come to this. In fact, it pretty much played out like I thought it would. Disappointment thy name will probably be forever Mutta.
So that guy finally told Mutta and Kenji about what was really going on. He told them that only one of them gets to go to the moon (this time). Now, what do you think happened, know that both of them have their own important reasons to go up there? It’s only natural that things would become awkward between them.
Mutta couldn’t even look at him. Communication basically came to a standstill and for a minute there it seemed as though they were going to fight when Kenji suggested that they were to give up on building that telescope, which happens to be the primarily reason why Mutta wants to go to the moon right now.
It was a very difficult episode. But, and I already foresaw this, Mutta acted like a coward once more. He kept coming up with stupid ideas that might persuade Kenji to underperform. But that was only at the beginning, the rest of the time he couldn’t stop thinking about giving up. He was so sure that Kenji was the one to get picked at the end of the day.
The real question being; can we blame him? No. We cannot. Kenji is pretty good at what he does and he makes difficult decisions without giving in to pressure. He was willing to sacrifice his friendship with Mutta in order to be the one to succeed this time. The guy is really determined. There is nothing wrong with that at all.
