Twin Spica is told with an uncommonly graceful blend of optimism and melancholy. Artist Kou Yaginuma takes his sci-fi premise seriously, and he treats his characters with warmth and intelligence. Strongly recommended.”–David Welsh, The Manga Curmudgeon

“I found Twin Spica to be a surprisingly compelling read, darting in and out its broad character types and standard set pieces with a light touch, offering up just enough that’s different and comparably off to the side to hold my attention. Creator Kou Yaginuma displays a wonderful sense of when to push forward with his narratives and when to let them rest against the broad spectrum of character experience and odder-than-usual social themes against which any and all immediate dramas are played out. There’s a cogency to the final package that has a good chance of carrying it through to the final volume with some of what I like about this book surviving the trip.”–Tom Spurgeon, The Comics Reporter

is grounded in realism, and takes slow, purposeful steps in laying out its story, illustrated in a classic style that avoids both outrageousness and cutesiness. Because the work is a natural charmer with a protagonist you care about deeply shortly after the outset, this first volume gets you hooked in no time; the remaining 15 can’t come out fast enough.”–Rod Lott, BookGasm

“Required reading. There’s a lot of heartfelt emotion balanced with space-based science in this tale of a young girl’s desire to visit the stars. Asumi’s single-minded dedication to her childhood dream is admirable, with a promising ending to this introductory volume. As soon as I finished this book, I found myself already longing to read more.”–Lorena Nava Ruggero,  i ♥ manga!
