Space Brothers: Collection 6 (2014/Sentai Blu-ray)

Picture: A+ Sound: B+ Extras: B- Episodes: B+

Mutto dreams of going to the moon following the foot steps of his little brother Hibitom but ever ever since their mentor, Sharon diagnosed she had ALS, he begins to worry and lose concentration on the training program. As Mutto continues his training, he is tested and challenged, but will he make the Astronaut program or will he fail and live forever in the shadow of his little brother?

In Space Brothers: Collection 6 (2014), Mutto had always lived in the shadow of his little brother, Hibito. Hibito was the first Japanese to set foot on the moon and has became the hero of the nation. As Mutto follows in his little brother's foot steps he realizes his path will be become a very different one from his little brother. Now that Muto is in the NASA Astronaut training program, he has the lowest scoring among all the astronaut trainees, but there is one thing he will not lose in, he will not lose to anyone in spirit of an astronaut.

This series remains semi-realistic about the astronaut program as it explores not only it's excitement but some of the challenges and dangers astronauts face. It is set somewhat in the near future with the idea that one day mankind will begin setting up a moonbase. In this season, it focuses more on the training programs than actual space travels.

The high quality picture & sound are in line with the best releases in this series (reviewed elsewhere on this site), while extras include clean opening and closing animation animation and trailers.
