Where were you when the first International Space Station was scrapped and dropped into Earth's atmosphere? It was Asumi's first day in space school, and she promised Lion she wouldn't cry or be homesick as she will be leaving her quiet seaside town for the big city.
Waiting for her in Tokyo will be a lot of work. She's going to have to go through the rigors of space exploration training at the Tokyo Space School. After hours, Asumi will focus her efforts on homework when not earning her tuition at the neighborhood Denny's. With all of the work she and her classmates are putting in, why does space still feel so far away?
