Simply Incredible, 14 March 2002
Author: Fredrik Malmquist ( from Härnösand, Sweden

This is the best anime I have ever seen!

It is hard to describe it really. It takes place in the future, and some colonists have gone out in the universe and settled down. The men and the women got separated, so they live on different planets with prejudices against one another. Then some female pirates gets stranded 263 days from their home planet, with 3 males. Hibiki, the main character. Bart, the wimp and Duero, the doctor. When I began seeing it I thought that it would be the worst feminist anime ever, but it was actually quite incredible. One character, Dita, is the most beautiful anime character that I have ever seen. She is so totally adorable and innocent, and only has eyes for Hibiki, whom tries to ignore her. If you have the opertunity to watch it, don't hesitate.
