"Irresponsible Captain Taylor with a pink chewbacca instead of the tanuki. Very entertainig and orbital debris is SCARY!"


"Very interesting twist to a life of a garbage man."


"Hmmm... It's a nice art style and an original idea (I mean would write about garbage collectors?) and with nice grammatical subtitles ... all together very cute."


"Plot - pickup junk in space."


"interesting, odd, looks good, need to see more."


"A very funny & touching and successfull show which is a great anime version of 'Quark'"

Michael Eh?

"M.A.S.H. or Barney Miller in space. Odd mix of characters which seem almost in touch with their setting of basement storage of a space station. Characters clashing with each other makes it worth watching. However there seems to be no clear direction as do most 'work place' related dramas in general do. However it allows the writers to explore each episode as a seperate storyline without long term plot lines traping them to standard fare."
