Product Description

In 2167, the Earth was catastrophically damaged by a nearby supernova that had exploded. The explosion sent an electromagnetic wave of radiation that swept over the Earth. Now 186 year later, another more destructive wave, known as the Second Wave, is on its way to Earth! 15 year-old computer genius Shima Katase has been dreaming of going up into space longer than she can remember. So when given the chance to enter space piloting school she jumps at the chance. However, piloting is a lot more complicated than programming a computer. But what if she were to combine the two? Genius or troublemaker, Shima is certainly going to be making a name for herself among the faculty as the Second Wave approaches...

This is a great animé.A must see for any sci-fi fan who wants more than your usual alien fighting crap.A real original story about surpassing oneself.And it's getting really hard to find too.

HASH(0xa61c3840) out of 5 stars An Entertaining Sci-Fi Series Withouth The Battles Or Robot Mecha Oct. 18 2009
By Rich(アニメとゲームが優先!!) - Published on

The series is surprisingly entertaining an that even though it doesn't have the gundam mecha battles or major conflicts it still becomes an addictive series as you watch it from start to end. The series begins in the future after the earth is almost eradicated of life after a nearby star goes nova and kills about 95% of the human population, after this catastrophe the humans have built massive stations in space with the hope of using advanced technology to stave off another disaster like the one they've to face before. The story also tells of a group of young pilots with the job of helping these stations and other missions on the space stations and one in particular Shima Katase a computer programing genius with growing exceptional piloting skills is the main focus point of the series. The characters are very entertaining both the pilot candidates and their trainers and the commanders as they reach out to one another and form friendships as well as some romantic connections between some of the characters as well. The story for the series while not as dramatic as other sci-fi anime series is still fun to watch and should not put off other anime fans who've never seen the show before, the animation and voice cast are very good for the series and while it's not widescreen the picture leaves no complaints. the extras aren't much just the usual trailers and textless intro/ending songs for the show but for the price I got this for from the seller again no complaints. So if Funimation doesn't re-release the series you can do what I've done and just buy from one of these sellers and again for $40 dollars for the series a definite must get...
HASH(0xa77e0ee8) out of 5 stars Wonderfully Realistic & Subtle May 6 2010
By Snarkhunter - Published on
The trailers for this & animation style led to me to believe that it would be on the order of 7 and up age group, but that is dead wrong. What you get instead is is a space academy, growing up sort of story which perfectly captures teen angst (as far as I can recall those days!). It is perfectly believable, right down to some of the most cruel, cut-em-off-at-the-knees conversations between the 2 leads I have ever seen; the poor guy literally has no chance to speak & has no idea at all what he may have done. The science part is also believable; a lot of concepts get tossed around in a plausible manner, but especially in how people might react to the tech involved and how they would treat it. I found myself getting absorbed early and really pulling for the characters as the series began to reach its end.

Aside from wanting more episodes, my one complaint--very minor--is that I would have liked a little more demonstrative and definite ending. It's clear enough & logical, but I'd like to have *seen* it rather than be told it, as it were. I admit this way is more subtle, though. And I can't tell you more without spoilers!
