I don't read mangas to identify myself to some character, I read mangas because there's imagination there, no boundaries at all
Zehahaha have you tried reading Kingdom ?
I like the idea of the anonymous hero: even the man who sells cigarrettes in the corner could be a hero of a remarkable and secret story. I guess, in the beginning is just a matter of the images that appear in the cover page of a comic, of a film, etc.... But if you take the time to look closer you can find more heroes than those that you can watch a first sight. So yes, that's a matter of preferences but not about what you want to see, but where you want to search...
...the philosophic outburst...
I'm busy this week, so I'll catch up in week 2. Once I get some free time 26 chapters will be easy....

Comment on chapter 11
I've been pretty busy.. could only read the first 4 chapters, but I'm liking the tone of the manga, it has a very realistic feel and that's the last thing you expect from a space story. Off course chapter 3 was an outlier, since it was't very realistic and had more of a gag atmosphere, with Fee strugling to smoke
I'll probably catch up on the weekend
I found it weird that Hakimu stopped too... From what I understood, they seem to be tired of this stuff
It seems the SDF (Space Defense Front) are losing support, they can no longer keep up with this... So I guess they got tired of this already
Yes, that's weird. Even after ceasing their activities, it was extrange that Hakimu had cared about Hashimaki and had stopped him when he was going to take the elevator, if on the other hand he was hurting and killing civilians with their bombs.
Where did you see SDF was losing support?

I see that I was not alone to find this part weird. It's like the author didn't know how to handle the terrorist part of the story and decided to abandon it.
So far I must say that it is the first chapters I have enjoyed the most.
I see that in the story there is a tension between what I would call the ant creed, represented by the chief of the whole mission, which consist in the fact that the colony and the objectives of the colony are more important than the particular lives of some ants --some people could be sacrifaced in order to eb succesful in a project that concerns all of the humany--, and the care creed, represented by Tanabe, who clearly cares for a single live, disaprove the ant ideology and cheers for love and compassion. Hahismahi is in the middle of those poles. And the idea of "the space is everywhere", and "there is no limits" seems to be the solution to the tension between the poles. Hashimashi's parents seems to understand it. (But I don't get it yet).
Btw, Hashimahis' mother line: "You're right. Think about it, because you are not too smart" is just beautiful!!!.

ok, I just finished the first 2 volumes
to be honest, at first I was expecting the story to be around Yuri.. I think that was the author intention too
I'm curious with what physics the author will come up for this Jupiter mission, I mean, Jupiter is a gas planet
I didn't like how the terrorist thing ended... it was too much "power of love" for my taste
I thought that the art looked a lot with Vinland saga, especially face expressions then I looked it up and it's the same mangaka... I didn't know
