Second volume of the Japanese anime series. In the near future, mankind now regularly travels among the stars. But with an increase in space travel, there is an increase in space junk, and it's up to the Debris Collecting Service to keep the space routes clear. Hachirota 'Hachimaki' Hoshino and new recruit Ai Tanabe work around the clock, keeping themselves going with dreams of owning their own spaceship. In this volume, Hachimaki meets an old astronaut and begins to question whether man is meant to travel in space at all. Episodes are: 'Lunar Flying Squirrel'; 'Space Girl'; 'Place to Stay'; and 'Regret'.
