Haunted by a space flight accident that claimed the life of his beloved wife, Yuri finds himself six years later as part of a team of debris cleaners on a vessel called the Toy Box charged with clearing space junk from space flight paths. The team consists of Hachimaki, a hot shot debris-man with a sailor’s affinity for the orbital ocean; Fee, a chain-smoking tomboy beauty with an abrasive edge; and Pops, a veteran orbital mechanic whose avuncular presence soothes the stress of the job.
Planetes (ΠΛΑΝΗΤΕΣ, プラネテス Puranetesu) is a Japanese science fiction manga series written and drawn by award-winning manga author Makoto Yukimura. The series was originally published by Kodansha in the manga magazine Weekly Morning from January 1999 to January 2004. Planetes is one of my favorite manga series. “It’s a realistic manga that makes you realize something about yourself, humanity, and the universe we live in.” (mangaupdates.com)
