My Personal Thoughts
I think this anime is good but sad thing is this anime ends in this season only concept was good and story line was ok and animation quality was also good. Character of Kanata (lead hero) is shown brave and bold in this anime. And he is very humble and sweet friend and a good captain and other character are also shown good. In this anime all character development is done very nicely. And this anime shows friendship matters everything even whatever happened never leave your friends. After long time finally a space anime came u may remember a boy name Astra boy anime quite popular sound like similar. But both of these anime are different prospective and quality. I can say we cant compare both of anime. Astra in Space is also a survivor type of anime how to stay calm after so many shocks. It makes learn how to use your brain in this situation and stay alive. Their are many types of survivor anime which tells how to be strong and stay alive. I can say this anime is good but the bad part for you people this season ends in 1 part only. Lets hope may be their would be a next season with same people or different story and it make me remember of anime DARLING IN FRANX which dressing sense quite same and that also ends in 1 season. But DARLING IN FRANX will be having a season 2 with different story because we got a hint by director. Although anime still makes us laugh, sad, happy, emotional, and many more this series contain all aspects of emotions in it.
