Uchuu Kyoudai 5 ~ there are so many better possible names
May 2, 2012
Episode 5 of Uchuu Kyoudai (Space Brothers) sees Mutta Nanba reunited with his brother Hibito in Houstan Texas, USA. Instead of going to the NASA space center, Mutta takes the first day off. A lot could be said about the interactions between the brothers, but one thing stuck with me: that stack of training manuals. I think something was being said when Hibito stared at them. My best guess is that he can tell that they have been shifted about. Further, my guess is that one reason, though he doesn’t say it, that Mutta didn’t go in to the Space Center is because he was reading the training manuals. I wonder if this will play a role later on. Mutta is a stickler for details. That was established earlier, and was stressed in this episode. Perhaps Mutta will whip out some knowledge he received by reading the manuals during his visit to the Space Center.
