Kids say (1 ):

The six-part series, which is released in Japan as a two-part film, offers a futuristic space adventure that feels relevant in today's digitally-driven world. The young protagonists must rely on their wits, courage, and savvy to survive, especially when facing the dangers of space, failing technology, and machinery that's turning against them. But throughout it all there's a very compelling human narrative. The Orbital Children offers anime fans a solid story, and one that is sure to entertain.
