Space Brothers is one of a handful of April season anime additions that looks like it has a ton of potential. Based on the manga by Chūya Koyama, the series follows two brothers, Mutta and Hibito, who vow to become astronauts. While only Hibito makes it, Mutta’s life ends up changing on one fateful day, as well.
The anime adaptation, set to premiere in Japan on April 1, is directed by Ayumu Watanabe, a veteran of various Doraemon projects. If you want an early look, the official Space Brothers website has a new promo up, which you can also watch below.
