An exploring and dramatic anime with great writing.
21 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

From extraordinary Manga creator, Leiji Matsumoto. Brings you an anime that's a mix of Sci-Fi, Adventure, Action, and Drama. Galaxy Railways takes place in a galaxy where trains are capable of traveling through space like shuttle rockets. Making it easy for people to visit distant planets of the galaxy. However dangerous occurs on the railway system, where engine failure and terrorists happen. To help make the galaxy railways safe for everyone. The SDF was form to help, serve, and protect those who are aboard the galaxy trains.

The whole series is focused on Manabu Yuuki, a new recruit of the SDF. Who's father once served in the same division. It's Manabu's childhood dream to follow the same path like his dad did before him. But there's many choices and situations that Manabu must succeed if he were to make his dream a reality.

This is the first Leiji Matsumoto anime I've ever seen. But I do understand how he's had a history of creating Sci-Fi anime that are being praised for several years. I can see why, cause this anime here is a fine example of his works.

The episodes and stories alike are all Sci-Fi/Fantasy. But they all have a mixture of believable characters and emotions. It's as if you're watching something that's from real life even though it take place in a fictional universe.

Once in a while I like how something that's an Anime can deliver actual emotion and drama like a live action drama would. This anime is highly worth seeing if you like a blend of Sci-Fi/Adventure/Drama/Fantasy.
