No thread for this great series? There's one now.
_One night in 2006, when they were young, the two brothers Mutta (born 1993) and Hibito (born 1996) saw what appeared to be a UFO heading for the moon. They decided that night to both become astronauts and travel out into space.
In 2025, Hibito has become an astronaut, and he's going to go to the moon. Mutta ended up following a more traditional career path with an auto development company. However, Mutta just ruined his career through a violent altercation with his boss. Now, not only has he lost his job, he appears to be blacklisted in the entire industry. Maybe this is a rare opportunity for Mutta to once again chase his childhood dream and become an astronaut like his little brother!_
So here's why I created the thread and realized how much I enjoy this series.
! So I saw the anime episode where Mutta was accepted into JAXA and became an astronaut trainee. I never really cry when reading/watching manga/anime, but I do get slightly teary eyed/cold shivers during real emotional scenes. This was one of them. I really enjoyed watching his journey and watching him achieve that goal was the icing on the cake.
! Then the manga chapter came out for it. I gave them a quick read, but then that scene came up again and I still got those chills. It's really a great moment, one of the best/most defining I can recall in awhile.
I just wanted to suggest this/express my enjoyment/give a place for people to talk about this series.
