Synopsis

In 2063, space travel is a common occurrence for humankind. A small group of Caird High School students make a trip to Planetary Camp on the planet McPa. Although they land successfully, they are soon beamed by a strange light that transports them into the void of space, orbiting an unknown planet.

Eventually, the group, known as Group B-5, is able to reach the planet and discover an abandoned spacecraft. Naming it Astra, the kids use this ship to jump to alien planets and gather the necessary resources to make it home, encountering unexpected surprises and revelations throughout their journey.

Background

Astra Lost in Space originated as a manga by Kento Shinohara. It was serialized from May 2016 to December 2017 as an online comic by Shonen Jump. The series has since then been collected into five tankobon volumes and licensed by Viz Media. Studio Lerche is producing an anime series that will premiere in July 2019. Helming the project is director Masaomi Ando who has previously worked on Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse and The Girl Who Leapt Through Space.
