Is it worth watching? I heard mixed things about it plus I was spoiled the ending a time ago.
>is it worth watching?
Sure, it's a pretty fun series, just don't set your expectations too high.
I'm not huge into anime myself but I really like the space setting and I just went along and started watching it since I've heard about it so much. I put it off to the side for some reason but it's not bad imo. It would be a 10/10 (or close to it) for me if they wore flight/space suits of some kind.
Probably one of the most influential anime of the early aughts that lead to anime gaining mainstream popularity in the west along with studio ghibli films of that era. It's good.
It's good albeit very episodic so a lot of it is more or less unconnected from what I guess would be the main storyline. It's also, one of the few animus where the English dup actually isn't god awful.
I heard its popularity overseas eclipsed its popularity at home by a pretty wide margin. That is to say, most Japanese anime fans would probably look to other shows as an example of a highly influential 90s anime.
