Itʼs the first day of Planet Camp, and Aries Spring couldnʼt be more excited! She, along with eight other strangers, leave for Planet McPa for a weeklong excursion. Soon after they arrive, however, a mysterious orb appears and transports them into the depths of space, where they find an empty floating spaceship…
STORY: 8/10 Set in the future, a group of nine teenage students set out on an outer space "camping" adventure to planet McPa. However, they suddenly find themselves transported far away by some mysterious sphere. Thus begins the journey of finding their way back home, if only it through a series of trials and tribulations, adversity, and some unexpected surprises. There have been a couple of interesting plot twists so far. It's fun, humorous, and engaging enough to look forward to the newest episode every week. The surprises in episode six, damn! ANIMATION: 6/10 The art and animation are not top quality, but they aren't at the bottom either. Artistically, Lerche did a decent job if adding in some pleasant colors to what are more simple character and background designs. In terms of animation, it is fluent and smooth looking. However, the most annoying thing is the fluctuations between aspect ratios that happen throughout each episode at various times. It does add some additional dramatic elements, but it's an overall annoyance more than anything. SOUND: 7/10 OP and ED are fine. The music and sound effects during the episodes are above average. CHARACTERS: 8/10 There development is coming along nicely without anything feeling rushed. The crew is a diverse cast coming from all different backgrounds and fields of study. The relationships that they are building with each other grows stronger and more intertwined through each new episode. However, I wonder it will continue since the anime is scheduled to have only 12 episodes. OVERALL: 42/50 So far, so good, especially for any one who likes Outer Space, Sci-Fi themed anime. The anime reminds me a little bit of the older live-action TV series Lost In Space. I enjoyed the show as a kid so that's a good thing. ENTERTAINMENT SCORE: 9/10 ACHIEVEMENT SCORE (thus far): +4 TO OVERALL Moderate - Slightly Above My expectations were Moderate, and it delivered Above those expectations.

A coming-of-age story set in a science fiction setting. This is the true identity of the show. Few anime possess the charm like Astra Lost In Space has, and even fewer possess a much rewarding conclusion like this show has. This show is not perfect. Like all pieces of art, it has flaws, but it is a goddamn delicious treat. With a solid story from start to finish, the episodes do not feel boring at all. Although, this show cheats me into looking forward to the next episode due to its constant cliffhangers. Nevertheless, the series becomes better as it goes on, unraveling many deep twists and touching a bunch of subjects you'd never thought they will. The flaws of this show is that it gives a "sci-fi lite" vibe. The science fiction aspects were never discussed deeply, but it never feels lacking either thus you can pretty much fill in the gaps using inference. Overall, this show is among the most unique in the massive pool of anime series that have released over the years. With consistently good art, soundtrack and a cinematic-like experience, this will entertain you.
Beautiful artwork, great soundtrack, and deeply touching character backstories and relations. An excellent balance of comedy, drama, and excitement. It never gets boring. The conspiracy bit seems like it's shoehorned in to add extra motivation for the crew to return home and while it feels entirely unnecessary throughout most of the story, ultimately serves that purpose. I think that it could have been handled better, though. I recommend this to anyone even if you aren't into the whole space exploration thing. That's just the setting for this anime that has so much more to offer in every other regard. The ending is satisfying and leaves little for want. Not an easy feat. Overall 9/10. Will watch again.
