Fun and futuristic
4 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

This series takes place in the year 2356, 189 years after a supernova's shock-wave hits the earth and nearly eradicates every living thing. Stellvia is a space station, the 2nd of six "foundations" which are distributed around planets in the solar system with the goal of protecting the planets (including Earth) from a 2nd wave bearing down on them. Later in the series, the second wave also leaves a rip in the universe ('Cosmic Fracture') that the cadets of Stellvia will have to combat along with some UFOs.

The main character, Shima, is a programming genius (and complete klutz). She along with Arisa and her other friends, tough their way through the academy and life as they prepare for the missions.

This series has a marvelous intro and closing song plus a nice mix of animation with CGI that doesn't let the CGI make the series too glossy (like is problematic with series such as IGPX). It's definitely a series for any age...lighthearted and fun.
