Episode 1: Light, Seven Flashes


Episode 2: Nebula Soldiers

Planet With Episodes 1 and 2 Review: A Cat Sensei and an Amnesiac Hero

In Planet With episode 1 (Light, Seven Flashes) and episode 2 (Nebula Soldiers), Souya Kuroi has a terrifying dream in which he watches his friends fly off in strange flying armor to engage what appears to be an unbeatable foe. When he wakes up, his circumstance is much less dire, though no less strange. He finds he’s living with Ginko Kuroi, a green-haired maid, and (even more unusual) a bipedal cat named Sensei that’s as tall as he is! To make matters even more unsettling, some strange — and I mean very strange — flying ships begin appearing all over the world. What’s Souya’s relationship to Sensei and the flying ships? Why does he have a maid? And what’s with the seven heroes who all have mech gear?

What’s our hero’s past? Who can he trust? And most importantly, where he ever get to eat meat again? Capture from the Crunchyroll stream.
