Fun fact: this anime is supposedly extremely scientifically accurate. It’s also a great character-driven narrative about life in orbit!
I never thought a show about garbage-men in space would affect me this much. Superb anime that deserves all the love.
The best slice of life anime I’ve seen. The fact that it takes place in FRIGGIN’ SPACE makes it all the more worthwhile.
A space driven story that is held together by it’s flesh out world & massive world of characters of all shapes & sizes that try to coexist
A very fun slice-of-life like 1st half that goes away by the 2nd half. I personally wasn’t feeling it but you might like what it has to say.
Considering it’s about space garbage collectors it’s one of the most enjoyable anime I have ever seen
Humanity’s ambition to go where we’ve never gone before accentuates geopolitical disparities on Earth; observed from an orbital perspective.
