bad history, liberal fantasy, great man nonsense, essentially the exact same ideology as the civilization games, and ultimately kinda boring. Boichi's art is pretty good tho, though he was better in sun-ken rock. Kind of a shit manga, but I get why people really liked it.
Great concept ruined by paper thin characters and half baked philosophical themes rooted in liberal ideology. The lack of any serious conflict ruins the last arc. What the fuck man, getting to space should've been the hypest part. Really feels like Boichi is speedrunning the story just to get it over with.
Boichi was just the artist, it was written by Inagaki.

I just couldn't care about a story that's going to have cop-out scifi story progression, while the rest was filler. If I wanted accuracy on real life I'd watch a documentary on killer orcas, a how-to-video on house-building, and the diary of a guy that decided to live in the woods for 2 years. Did I miss any cool battles? Or can I just reread Hitman Reborn, Jojo and Bleach for the umpteenth time to remind me good manga do exist?
