Okakura is a sixteen-year-old boy who wants nothing more than to be an astronaut. He trains in the pool to simulate weightlessness while his childhood friends Mitsuro and Sakiko sit on the sidelines. Together they form an unbreakable bond, but one day Okakura is hit by a car and killed. Guided by the strange creature Pico, the guide for the dead, Okakura is taken up to the stars and shown the reality of space, while his friends try desperately to revive him, just like they've seen on TV!
It's a great one shot. A boy whose dream is to become an astronaut test the death himself and his friends are trying to bring him back. The story was cool, there were some good comic scenes.
