Late at night, while camping out in the hillsides of their hometown, brothers, Hibito and Mutta Nanba, spot what they think is a UFO whizzing its way to the moon. Awestruck, Hibito and Mutta vow to, one day, become astronauts and travel to the moon together themselves. Fast forward 20 years later and Hibito, the younger brother, is well on his way to achieving that dream. Mutta, meanwhile, is chronically unemployed. But could some meddling on the part of his parents, who send his resume to the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), be about to change all that? Space Brothers, which first aired in 2012, is a feel-good anime about two brothers supporting and encouraging each other to achieve their shared dream, overcoming the many obstacles that stand in their way. If my synopsis wasn’t enough to convince you to watch this hidden gem, I hope that my review (which you’ll find below) is!
