Am I the only one who felt this episode went no where? I mean, ok we learned about Kenchii but the rest of it seemed really "placeholder" to me.

Meh anyways, the only reason Mutta hasn't asked Serika out is because 1.) he's too much of a puss, and 2.) she's obviously not as important to him as becoming an astronaut. We all prioritize shiz in our life. Guess what his is? And to be fair, hers is probably the same.

I don't know what JAXA's policy of intra-workplace relationships entails (or if they even have a policy), but becoming an astronaut and dating someone are not mutually exclusive. As in, Mutta and Serika could do both. Sure, the examination process is taking up a lot of time and emotional energy, but that doesn't mean that they can't date if they wanted to.

Yeah, felt that way when I read these chapters in the manga. But I guess it was just a way for Koyama to do some research for future chapters and give some more background info etc..
But all in all, this episode was still pretty good!

I got a shock at Burger King today when a woman who looked almost exactly like Serika was in the queue behind me. It wasn't cosplay, she just happened to look like Serika's three-dimensional twin sister. Except, well, this girl is Caucasian, but then Serika (like most Anime characters) doesn't look Japanese either. Anyway, this girl had the same hairstyle (though her hair colour was a touch darker and her bangs were slightly longer), same face, same jaw, even the same smile. And she was wearing a puffy jacket which invoked the vest Serika wore in the most recent episode (hey, it's just coming out of Winter here).

So yeah, I thought that was pretty weird. And awesome. Reminds me of the time I saw a young mother in the library who resembled the glasses-wearing girl from Cat Planet Cuties. Gosh she was cute.



(And yeah, so what if I was checking her out? She was cute, that's reason enough.)

^what anime characters look like depends on where you're from... hehehe

Japanese say Japanese... White people say white...

Sort of how every race thinks Jesus is their race.

Or what you're used to reading. American comics train readers to expect Asian people to look a certain way, which doesn't really match reality either...

Anyway, caught up on #22/#23. I really liked Teshima's side story. And yeah, #22 in particular was mostly a recap episode, but that means when I recommend this show to people, I can now tell them to start there if trying to catch up from the beginning is too much.

I've been looking more closely at the crowd scenes in the opener lately, and I see a couple guys in there who are dead ringers for the performers doing the opening theme. Second crowd shot, over at the left.

I was just thinking how nice it was to watch a show that has an episode about Christmas without making it into a huge plot point about who's going on the big date or somesuch. I don't think I've ever seen a show that managed to resist the temptation before.

Then I remembered spoiler[Mutta's going to be seeing the other astronaut candidates again in February... so are we getting a big awkward Valentine's Day-related episode instead?]

Episode 25

spoiler[Hibito's problems with Azuma.
It was actually kinda sad for Azuma.
Being there before Hibito and getting skipped for the moon landing.
That totally sucks.
Mutta really admires his brother.
Just one last interview left.
Mutta training really hard, that was a surprise.]

Anyone have a guess as to who or what the Spider vehicle is named for? Armstrong is obvious, Gibson is obvious in the context of the other rock references, and I'm pretty sure the astronaut Azuma is named for Hideo Azuma.

Best guess I can make is the reasonably well-known sf author Spider Robinson, but I don't know if any of his work is known in Japan.

Episode 26

spoiler[So mom & dad came to visit their sons.
The final interview is here!
Mutta was a victim of a practical joke again...
His reaction to the whole chair thing was just weird.
The interview itself was nothing special though.
Seems like the party/dinner was the real test.]
