Uchuu Kyoudai episode 32 discussion

Episode 31 discussion can be viewed here

Being able to see Hibito continue his journey to the moon and how he's recording himself with the other members makes it more realistic to the real world. The camera gives them a nice slice of life feeling and a link back to Earth. The launch would be popular in the news leading up to and after the success of landing on the moon. After that the only reason they'd need screen time is for when they make any relatively important discoveries on the moon.

Linked to Earth

We learn about Azuma's feelings about being an astronaut and why Hibito was allowed to go first. Azuma had already gone into space and if he had wanted to, he would have easily received the place later given to Hibito. Azuma is very reserved and seems to desire a simple life without too much celebrity status. It makes sense that he wouldn't be able to cope with the pressure of making mistakes. He is easily happiest whenever with the ones he loves. All of his answers are simple and to the point as if he wants to escape from them as quickly as possible. He must have known his family would also be included in his fame, but he will always be able to protect them.

Azuma's chance to go to the moon was waste but I guess being with his family and being able to protect them is a lot better.

I agree, being with his family is far better. Giving Hibito a chance instead benefits everyone.

Aww we finally get that Azuma episode. I totally respect his reasons for not going to the moon. I always figured he was that kind of guy. Unfortunately, many people are quick to judge serious looking people. I know a few.

@Cely belly
I know someone like that too. Cold on the outside, but is kind after the initial meeting.
