Anime DVD Review

Anime often succeeds at hard-SF where live action fails. Gundam, Terra He and Royal Space Force were all stunning examples of true, literary-quality Sci-Fi. Here comes Planetes, which will join the ranks of these stellar anime to be one of the best SF series you'll get to experience in your lifetime.

Set in the near future, it's a blue-collar spaceworker tale of cleaning up orbital debris that is a hazard to navigation. The series does an outstanding job of realistically portraying life and travel in space, and the interesting characters and situations never let it get dull. For hardcore Sci-Fi fans or avid space nuts, this is the anime series to have!

Below: Planetes explores the life of your everday working class folks who toil away in outer space.
