Space Brothers Episode 55

Finally the recaps are done…and the survival training is done too. Now, it’s time to make a rover…fun fun. I dunno about you guys, but I’m hoping Mutta’s team makes a ball-shaped rover that yells “SPAAAAAAACE” when it goes around. Kinda fitting for a show like this, right?

Anyway, I’m sure they’re going to find out that Pico was actually some sort of genius or something…then he’ll “turn his switch on” and they’ll end up making something amazing with his help. Seems like pretty standard stuff. And I guess Mutta gets no break from what Amanti saw.

Space Brothers Episode 52

[Commie] Space Brothers - 52 [077D1A27].mkv_snapshot_01.06_[2013.04.09_07.43.45]

Sometimes in life, a show has been running long enough that they decide you’ve forgotten what has happened. When this happens, the stork brings along a recap episode…and everyone just skips through it. It doesn’t even make it to the second exam…I’m getting worried that there will be much more.

At least the recap episode brought along a new opening and ending…I wasn’t a real fan of the old ones. I like the new opening…the new ending is alright too (I can see it growing on me because of its style). Next week…a flashback for the Hibito side? Looks like a boring couple of weeks.

Space Brothers Episode 51

[Commie] Space Brothers - 51 [397BC251].mkv_snapshot_19.00_[2013.04.03_14.52.59]

I guess that’s it for Nitta’s little aside. I’m surprised they never actually talked to each other…the little brother doesn’t even try again with the call. He’s just okay now and they never talk. I guess Nitta’s too cool for teary conversations with his brother.

What’s going on in the preview? Is next week basically all flashbacks? Because the scenes all look familiar and they’re not in the desert. Are they going to be last place? And now Mutta’s back on Amanti’s prediction…what exactly is it related to? I’m mostly curious because it’s probably something nowhere near as bad as Mutta thinks.

Space Brothers Episode 50

[Commie] Space Brothers - 50 [747FF14C].mkv_snapshot_10.30_[2013.03.25_09.57.29]

Mutta and Nitta finally have their bonding moment after all this time together. That guy’s been a mystery for a while now…though the little brother thing became more obvious when Amanti made her prediction. I’m a bit surprised Nitta missed the call, but I guess there’s still more to the story, so he needs to tell it to Mutta before they talk.

Next week seems pretty straightforward to me…they’ll talk about the little brother a bit more and he’ll try to call again. Somehow realizing on his own that he doesn’t resent his older brother or something. Then everyone will be a happy family again…

Space Brothers Episode 49

So they gave Mutta the gun, huh? He’s the most observant of the group, so it’s probably for the best. The question is whether he can accurately shoot it…of course, the more important question is whether he will actually need it. I’m actually surprised they weren’t all equipped with knives or something…seems like standard stuff for survival.

Anyway, I guess Nitta dropped his phone when Mutta tackled him earlier. I guess the call from who I presume is his younger brother is pretty important to him if he wants to drop all progress for the day to backtrack. I knew there had to be a reason for that scene of Mutta knocking him down…anyway, I guess next week Mutta will go back with him to try and help. Shouldn’t the leader stay with the group, though?

Space Brothers Episode 48

[Commie] Space Brothers - 48 [9BF00FF6].mkv_snapshot_14.28_[2013.03.11_07.24.53]

The survival training has begun. And it’s a race through the desert. They’re really trying to milk this fortune teller thing by putting Amanti in the same group…now Mutta will continue to agonize over the prediction. Looks like the important part of this training exercise is the leadership stuff.

I wonder if Kenji realizes how strong of a leader he is…and is trying to give the team a good start. He’s probably not like that…just wants to get ahead. Next week is Nitta’s turn…which looks like it will be rough. His behavior seems somewhat similar to Bold based on the preview. Looks like we might find out more about the little brother situation…wonder if the group will find out as Mutta attacks him.

Space Brothers Episode 47

I swear all supermarkets look like this to me.
I swear all supermarkets look like this to me. Just a bunch of colors.

Well, I figured it was something like from Murasaki…there are so many astronaut candidates that not all of them can remain. But I wonder if this is just something to cause more worry for Mutta or if they are actually suggesting that someone in their group can drop. Nitta’s phone conversation this week was very suspicious, after all. He’s very closed to the rest of them, so he seems vulnerable.

Mutta’s not gonna be too obsessive about the fortune telling, right? It could just suggest hardship in his future, but an overall good result. Knowing him, though…oh well. Next week, the military training beginnings. Looks like fun…

Space Brothers Episode 46

[Commie] Space Brothers - 46 [72B20B0E].mkv_snapshot_20.10_[2013.02.25_06.52.31]

Vincent Bold…tries to do things quickly and efficiently like I do, but for a different reason. My simple motivation is giving myself less work to do so that I can maximize my free time. I don’t very much care for getting things done…just that I have fewer things to do.

Anyway…everyone’s in Houston ready for their training. Mutta is pranked again…this guy’s hopeless. What was Kenji trying to say to Mutta? Maybe he assumed that Murasaki said was another one of his pranks, so he kept it to himself? Does it have something to do with Bold?
