Trivia

According to translator Matt Thorn, in the revised edition of the manga, it is implied that there are female cadets, but that Tada's group is an all male group. In the original, it was implied that the academy accepted only males. Moto Hagio made this change for rather obvious reasons. See more »

Beautiful story of friendship and love
19 May 1999 | by (Miyazaki, Japan) – See all my reviews

Anime based on Hagio Moto's Comic. As a final examination of Space University, 10 exzminate were sent to an old spaceship. But when they got to the spaceship, they found they were eleven. Who's the uninvited guest? And what's his intention? Soon unexpected explosions occurred and causes the change in the course of the ship to the burning sun... It's a beautiful story of friendship and love, well conserved the mood of the original comic.
