but apparently not, hence remedying that now.Our universe is vast, probably much bigger than we perceive it to be We may be the only form of life in our solar system, but who knows what lies out beyond ours Why are we here For what purpose do we exist for our particular solar system to consume to explore to live All these questions are constantly questioned throughout this omnibus But essentially its a story about exploring the human existence and why we strive to beand even seek out the all consuming answer of why are we here It is the year 2070 and space is being explored evenso than before Not saying this is Star Wars or Star Trek levels of space livelihood but the precursor of such sci fi tales Our story centers around the ambitious Hachimaki, the forlorn Yuri and the mysterious Fee as they operate as a space garbage crew Let s face it, we humans make a lot of garbage, even in space with debris such as dead satellites and other junk either broken off from spacecrafts or by other means Even coffins but through all that, the story tackles and cycles through our three main characters before focusing largely on Hachimaki for various reasons Each have their own concerns and thoughts while in space And they all come from somewhere on Earth.The correlations between Earth and space, and the human existence crisis becomes an apparent topic of discussion as ideals clash, even dealing with space terrorists within their own ranks as the story expands to include the space stations and the rest of the interplanetary public Various cultures, races, ideals, beliefs andclash here yet at the same time hold a common factor space.If I was to get intodepth and focus in terms of the characters, all three illustrate different perspectives of what you may encounter in space ambition, loss, and reality.For Hachimaki, space has always been something he dreamed of being a part of his father is a astronaut too, and a damn good one too from the sound of things the reality of it is debatable however in comedic terms rofl It is through him that we see the paralyzing ideals and wonders about space and the human existential crisis I see explored through different means and perspectives as he clashes with other characters.Yuri, he deals with the aspect of loss Very early on in the story, like within the first few pages you see a peek into his past and what he s lost An accident into space steals the life of his wife, causing him to deal with the grief in an isolated way Always looking for any trace of her, hence taking the job of being on the space garbage crew Through the process, we see that grief transcends earth and space It s always there no matter where we go or how we get there, but the resulting realization and reasoning behind it is an interesting angle to the human existential crisis that pervades the majority of this story.Lastly Fee, oh Fee She s a firecracker of sorts While her story is barely touched upon, you do see sides of what she had to do to adapt to living in space, and being away from her family on earth for long periods of time and her inner struggles and responsibility to her crew she acts at their communicator and guide, while Hachimaki and Yuri do the dirty work personally Also, she illustrates an interesting aspect in the terms of living in space such as the limits and persistence of humanity She surpasses it for her own selfish reasons, but it s a treat and awe to see it unfold.Overall, the weight of this story is only encompassedso by the weight of this tome I feel as though it being in omnibus format is better for this kind of series that the regular volume format I hope to read the remaining books because I m definitely left wanting , especially with the developments linked to the space terrorists, which reminds me I should touch on that aspect briefly.The space terrorists that I refer to is the reasoning behind their efforts believing humanity is spreading its pollution and self destructive behaviour beyond Earth s atmosphere It s an interesting look into environmental issues that we have even today And they won t stop there, environmental issues will continue to affect us well into the future and generations upon generations It s not global warming, but climate change and we re adapting the best we can The interplanetary travel exploration is the same thing, adaptive survival on other worlds, and expanding our own universe and understanding the beyond One of my fave examples of this is the Lunarian question, and how can humans exist and hope to be born on other planets where gravity and other means are drastically different I wish they explored this aspectbut alas, it ll be something that will continue to haunt my thoughts when reading other sci fi books for sure This is the series that convinced me that graphic novels and manga was a worthy storytelling medium Along with Y The Last Man, Vol 1 Unmanned, this is my favorite graphic novel series of all time Back when it was published in the turn of the millennium and picked up two Seiun Awards, Japan s highest honor for science fiction , it also kindled a love for hard sci fi that has since grown into an obsession If you love novels and movies that go heavy on the realistic science, such as The Mart This is the series that convinced me that graphic novels and manga was a worthy storytelling medium Along with Y The Last Man, Vol 1 Unmanned, this is my favorite graphic novel series of all time Back when it was published in the turn of the millennium and picked up two Seiun Awards, Japan s highest honor for science fiction , it also kindled a love for hard sci fi that has since grown into an obsession If you love novels and movies that go heavy on the realistic science, such as The Martian or Interstellar, I promise you ll love this series.I was given an ARC by Dark Horse before this was published, but I ve also read the original run some decades ago and reread it many times since then I m very picky about my manga, since so much of the genre is bloated with formulaic plot devices Unlike the popular stuff your little brother reads, Planetes is mature and nuanced, with deep characterization and subtle questions about the nature of humanity and our collective self destructive drive to explore the unknown, at all costs.Even though it first ran over 15 years ago, Planetes doesn t feel dated, and the art doesn t have that distinctive 90s manga style that so many people including myself love to hate Yukimura takes full advantage of his medium, using the panels to alternatively illustrate the harsh and lifeless limitlessness of space and contrast it with the claustrophobic interiors of space shuttles.Really, I can t wax enough praise for this series I m so pleased to finally see it finally reissued so that I can finally replace my extremely well loved set I bought over ten years ago In the s, increased interplanetary travel has led to

A pretty good sci fi slice of life story It is pretty interesting and the art is pretty good as well It s slightly older but overall a good story for sci fi fans Hachi s growth should be interesting to see.
