In the year G.C. 0051, humans have obtained super light-speed navigation technology and formed a commonwealth of planets with other species. In-debt freelance reporter Robby Yarge has had a streak of bad luck; losing his job, his girlfriend, and was nearly killed in a traffic accident. When his bag is stolen, Robby meets 18-year-old Hatchi Kita, who apprehends the thief and return his property. The two part ways soon after, but Hatchi eventually turns up in Robby's life again, this time as a debt collector working for a loan shark named Yan. A cat-and-mouse chase begins, and Robby tries to elude Hatchi and escape to space while shaking off Yan's group - only to discover Hatchi hiding inside his spaceship. The two decide to travel across the galaxy together in search of Isekandar, a distant and legendary planet in the Milky Way that is said to bring happiness to those who go there.
Story: Basically a smart guy with limited real world experiences and a former rich kid with bad luck and a ton of debt end up in space together running away from a crazy debt collector and his minions. It's episodic, kind of like a planet of the week thing. Every episode they end up on a different planet, either in our solar system or made up, with a different crazy tourist attraction or issue. It's got a touch of mecha anime to it since they do have a giant (mostly useless) robot. It’s got aliens. It’s got space. It’s got jokes. Granted, the comedy is so so in some episodes. The plot is fairly weak, even for a show like this. Though the overarching plot of a journey to this cool place and escaping this crazy guy is solid enough, there’s a lot of stuff thrown in that nothing really comes of and ends up being sort of loose ends. It doesn’t really stand out or go above and beyond but that’s okay. It’s not bad for what it is. If you want something simple and easy while you’re tired, it’s good enough. 6/10 Animation: I really liked the animation. It's bright. It's colorful. It's smooth. Some characters look really wild but hey, no matter how tired you are, you can’t possibly mix up who is who. They all have their own very unique style. The animation suits the nature of the show very well and it's probably one of the things that kept me watching. 9/10 Sound: Pretty good. I never have much to say about sound unless it's really bad, and it's definitely not here. I was too tired to watch subbed when I started but the dub voices seemed to fit the characters decently. They weren't cringey or anything that I noticed and sound effects were fine. That silly commercial song might make you want to sigh by the 5th episode though if you binge watch. We get it. We want to go to isekandar. Shut up. 9/10 Characters: I have to admit my first impression of the main characters was not impressed. They are a bit weak for main characters. Even in the end, they just weren’t the best. There was some development at least but it did feel rather shallow and even a tad forced or out of the blue at times. And some stuff just felt like it was being thrown in like random spices into a dish which ultimately didn’t do the dish any favors in the end. I found myself a bit more interested in some of the side characters tbh. So I’d give characters a 5/10. Not awful but not great either. Overall, it’s a decent show. It’s kind of just in the middle. If you got nothing better to do, want to waste some time, and or are too tired for anything else, it’s a good show. It will probably give you a few laughs. 6.5 out of 10
"Cute" is the best way to describe this show. Stars align, and two men from vastly different backgrounds wind up on a adventure through the galaxy together, whether that's observing bizarre cultures, ditching bloodthirsty loansharks, or just trying not to kill one another. It has a fairly straight forward story, with much of the humor stemming from the chemistry between the two protags, and the way they interact with the planets they land on. An anime that's neither mind blowing nor bland, it's a perfectly decent show to kill some time with.
