I think that the anime is much better than the manga
>The romance drags a bit, as so the office hijinks
So like 75% of the Anime? I can see why people like Planetes, but I wasn't such a fan of space trashmen.
Don't worry, some interesting political conflicts will become more important, and shit gets really cathartic in the last 8 episodes or so. Also, the character development is unreal.
Tanabe pissed me off at the beginning, especially the whole funeral thing.
And fuck the ninja episode, by the way.
Anime is generally trash. Moeshit, haremshit, and shonenshit is dumb and pandering. There's at best one good show a season and everything else can be discarded. You can't pretend to know anything about anime if you haven't watched the mainstream stuff like Ghiblis.
I really enjoyed that the romance was an actual romance between two relatively functional adults, and that it was centrally involved in the show's central themes and main conflict. A lot of the second half of the show is Hachimaki realizing that throwing away everything in his life other than ambition is not only stupid but completely unsustainable. Hence the whole "every ship needs a harbor" thing.

>moe and shounen are genres
>all harems are bad
Opinion disregarded. It's not even unpopular, it's just uninformed and a stupid generalization.
I think lifeforms are an anomly in the universe that shouldn't exist.
