    Вот да. В параллельном просмотре аниме по мотивам я немножко потеряла основную линию оригинала - эту трагическую, выносящую безысходность. Один неверный шаг, одна мелкая деталь - и вся жизнь летит под откос. И некого винить, кроме случайности да судьбы. А если хочешь слетать на Юпитер и решить проблему нехватки ресурсов - на пути у тебя обязательно встанет вооруженная оппозиция, которая разбомбит тебя во имя противостояния мега-корпорациям.

Страшно и на Земле, и в космосе, и везде мы одиноки, пускай даже на редкие мгновения позволяем себе поверить, что это не так. Если манга ввергает меня в состояние бесконтрольной грусти, то аниме в противовес обволакивает теплой уверенностью в завтрашнем дне. Каково было мое удивление, когда в манге Танабе появилась отнюдь не сразу (в аниме это с первой серии настоящий slow burn, со всеми раскадровками, нелепыми моментами и прочей шелухой), и все ее взаимодействие с семпаем - скомканное и не внушает никаких надежд. Такое острое и на грани отчаяния. Под стать атмосфере всей книги. На контрасте манги/аниме эта глобальная разница по-своему будоражит. Это как две параллельные вселенные, одна - словно сладкий сон, а вторая - беспощадная, жестокая, но честная. lukk.svbtle

    Do we need to abandon humanity for the sake of progress? One person decided that it's okay to kill hundreds of people for the sake of experimental data. While it raised a worthwhile pondering about how far we should go for the sake of science, the plot itself was rather ridiculous.

How stupid is that?

    4.5 Makoto Yukimura - galaxy brain. I love the themes of this book, they naturally follow “I Vs Space” and “I & Space” from the previous volume, developing into “I am part of the Space and Space is everything around me”. The importance of contact and communication and of forming bonds are shining stronger in this one. I found myself comparing Planetes and Vinland Saga more and more about their core message and character arcs. The paneling is breath-taking.

And I support it.

El ser humano desde tiempos inmemorables ha buscado verse rodeado de personas, en esa búsqueda formó un grupo, una sociedad para poder subsistir y sobrevivir.

El ser humano desde tiempos inmemorables ha buscado verse rodeado de personas, en esa búsqueda formó un grupo, una sociedad para poder subsistir y sobrevivir. En esa búsqueda perdió la soledad, necesitaba compartir sus emociones, manifestaciones humanas de alegría y sufrimiento, contar sus sueños y sentirse amado, hallando así, inevitablemente el amor. No es difícil entender a Hachimaki, ha logrado encontrar una respuesta, la cual ha interpretado a su manera. Para alcanzar su sueño necesita alejarse de toda distracción, amistad o lazo familiar, pues "No puede ser pionero del espacio a menos que pierda el miedo a ser egoísta". Es en este punto donde conoce a Tanabe, una aprendiz de astronauta que mediante una acción poco convencional, llegará a refutar sus ideas: "el espacio es demasiado grande para estar solo". No solo es Tanabe, son las circunstancias y experiencias que le harán reflexionar y replantear su perspectiva. El universo no se trata solo del espacio, también la tierra es parte del universo, no hace falta ir demasiado lejos para encontrarse así mismo.

    I enjoyed this one more than volume 1. The space setting was pleasant again and it was interesting to follow the main character's struggles. The new girl joining the team was a nice addition and leaded to moving moments. I enjoyed this one more than volume 1.

    Sejujurnya amatlah membingungkan melihat sepak terjang organisasi terorisme luar angkasa yang sempat merepotkan Hachimaki. Bayangkan saja, jenis teror yang mereka lakukan adalah meledakkan bom di berbagai fasilitas, infrastruktur, serta wahana luar angkasa. Ini bukannya sama saja dengan bunuh diri secara penuh kesadaran? Padahal para pelakunya digambarkan bukanlah mereka yang siap melakukan teror bom bunuh diri.

    Planetes is a surprisingly refreshing and poignant slice-of-life story set in space. The main characters are a wacky cast of working-class astronauts who are assigned to collect space junk orbiting the earth. I appreciated that this is a very realistic and believable near future astronaut story rather than some out-of-this-world magical science fiction tale.

    Smaller in scope than the first volume, focusing on one character through a 6 story arc. However, for that one character, it did have quite an impact by the end. Very realistically portrayed how high-performance individuals sometimes exhibit self-destructive and reckless behavior.

    Kucoba sampai setengah buku rasanya ogah2an betul.. entah karena jarang baca entah karena ini terasa membosankan. Mungkin karena aku slow starter kalau soal baca buku, jadi ketika aku menemukan pertengahan akhir cerita mulai terasa seru (buat aku) akhirnya aku merasa semangat membaca.

    Not really agreed with some of the philosophy in this book. And Col. Sanders as military leaders felt like a terrible joke.

    Space is big. And dark. And light. And empty. And lonely. But, it turns out, we're all in space. All the time. Even here on Earth! Mind-blowing, isn't it? Hachimaki, the hero of our story, is trying to get on the Jupiter mission so he can come back a hero and make a lot of money so he can buy his own ship. But even as he works to make the cut, those eco-terrorists are at it again. Blowing things up to save er.. something. At least in this volume, it feels like the story is starting to go somewhere.

And, hey, bonus, I learned that John Glenn was not the first person to orbit the Earth. (Could've sworn they told us that in school.) And did you know there was a person in between Yuri Gagarin and John Glenn? Well, probably you did. Because you didn't have the American public school education I did.

    3 stars instead of 4 this time. The reason I knocked a star is due to the story arch about 3/4 of the way through where the US declares war in space. Apparently Col. Sanders is the personification of the American military? The reason for the conflict is barely elaborated on, and juxtaposed in between that is a story about Fee Carmichael's brother who disappeared into the Virginia wild. Then suddenly the book goes back to what Planetes is 95% of the time, the romance between Hachimaki and Tanabe 3 stars instead of 4 this time.

If that section of the book had been cut I could have done 4 stars but it just felt really out of place. Other than that everything that worked in the first book works again here.

    Our protagonist Hachimaki is getting close to achieving his dream. He is on his way to a high-profile mission to Jupiter, which would launch his career as a true astronaut. He could finally say goodbye to cleaning space debris on the orbit. But political conflicts might get in his way when a terrorist attack sabotages the mission. This story doesn't move ahead at full steam, at least not yet, but Makoto Yukimura does amazing work with his characters.

    Planetes en mi opinión mejora mucho con este segundo volumen. La llegada de nuevos personajes como Hakim, Tabate e incluso Leonov dan la oportunidad y el espacio a nuevas "phases". El punto en común suele ser la madurez personal y psicológica del protagonista Hachimaki, en una labor tan arriesgada como es la de ser astronauta. Con aún dos volúmenes por leer y la aventura del posible gran viaje de Hachimaki Planetes por el momento me parece una lectura recomendada tanto para fans del comic/manga c Planetes en mi opinión mejora mucho con este segundo volumen.

    Chapter 9 read like a conventional manga and stood out as just not as good as the rest of the series so far. Chapter 9 has a different tone, more comedic, and some jarring logic, such as the leader of the space terrorists seemingly reforming after seeing someone else get kissed. Thankful, the rest of the book doesn't read like a conventional manga and gets back to the more realistic tone that makes this manga better than the majority.

    Loving the series. Tanabe is annoying me so much though, I just wish she communicated her thoughts differently and not so assertively. She acts as if she runs everything, which was agonizing to read. The character development is great. The authour no longer jumps from time to time so drastically which is nice.

    As Lem wrote in "Solaris", astronauts want to expand the Earth, add Cosmos to it. And that idea is interestingly drawn in "Planetes". As Lem wrote in "Solaris", astronauts want to expand the Earth, add Cosmos to it. And that idea is interestingly drawn in "Planetes".
