So I was willing to give this series a shot mostly due to lack of other options. The series follows a class of pilots in space…I thought the space part would be interesting to watch, but this first episode didn’t really inspire too much. Effectively, the entire episode is devoted into pooling resources to save a transfer student…who ends up not really needing the rescue. Given that the spaceship was destroyed in the operation, the guy didn’t even need an exit strategy. Perhaps it could be said that the episode went a bit over the top for me.
I know I have a pretty strong bias against the slice of life genre (somewhat justified in my mind), but I honestly didn’t find this series too interesting. I’m putting this one pretty low on the list for now…let me know if things change, I guess.
