"The series is surprisingly entertaining an that even though it doesn't have the gundam mecha battles or major conflicts it still becomes an addictive series as you watch it from start to end. The series begins in the future after the earth is almost eradicated of life after a nearby star goes nova and kills about 95% of the human population, after this catastrophe the humans have built massive stations in space with the hope of using advanced technology to stave off another disaster like the one they've to face before. The story also tells of a group of young pilots with the job of helping these stations and other missions on the space stations and one in particular Shima Katase a computer programing genius with growing exceptional piloting skills is the main focus point of the series. The characters are very entertaining both the pilot candidates and their trainers and the commanders as they reach out to one another and form friendships as well as some romantic connections between some of the characters as well. The story for the series while not as dramatic as other sci-fi anime series is still fun to watch and should not put off other anime fans who've never seen the show before, the animation and voice cast are very good for the series and while it's not widescreen the picture leaves no complaints. the extras aren't much just the usual trailers and textless intro/ending songs for the show but for the price I got this for from the seller again no complaints. So if Funimation doesn't re-release the series you can do what I've done and just buy from one of these sellers and again for $40 dollars for the series a definite must get..."
