Uchuu Kyoudai episode 9 discussion

Episode 8 discussion can be viewed here

As we found out from the preview last week, the letters Hibito had written were wills to his family. It causes Mutta a nightmare where him and Hibito are falling to their deaths because the parachute won't open. Does this mean he wants to go with Hibito to the moon? He's already decided to go to Mars as a way to be ahead, but being with friends and family is also worth a lot. I don't expect the wills to come up again until the time Mutta has to write his own.

Say goodbye to space brothers

The ISS space station passes over Japan which is a great chance for space enthusiasts. It's even better that Serika and Kenji also saw it too. Mutta should be grateful for Kenji instead of despising him for including himself in the moment. I bet many more also witnessed it's orbit that same night.

I noticed the ring in episode 4 and we finally get to see Kenji's wife and daughter. Kenji is a lucky man with such a beautiful wife and cute girl. She might be a messy eater now, but someday she'll be just as beautiful as her mother. Too bad Kenji will miss out on them growing up, but there are always video messages depending where he actually ends up. Considering the static from the space station, Mars is bound to be much worse.

The astronaut candidates meet up again to congratulate all the successful. We all knew Mutta, Serika and Kenji would succeed, but the other two aren't important. Unless they influence the story, I don't plan on learning their names either. It is annoying for the two that refer to him as Hibito's brother. They really are jerks to think it's thanks to Hibito instead of his skills and Apo. Everyone else seems to give him respect so two people don't really matter.

Ka-pe ^_^

She'll have her mother and if she is lucky, she can do video calls with her father.
