     The second episode of Towards the Terra  picks up right were the first episode left off, Jomy has just escaped from the testing station with Soldier Blue’s help, and is confronted by the soldiers sent to kill him. When the soldiers open fire on Jomy, he manifests a psychic power that stops the bullets mid-air. Jomy flees on foot, jumps over a fence. and lands on a ship piloted by Leo, who was sent by Soldier Blue. The pair is chased by fighter planes while escaping, after a air battle they make it to the mother-ship.

      After boarding the mother-ship Jomy is greeted by the ship’s captain, and other children his own age whom live on the ship, this seems to be a lot for Jomy to handle. After a bad reaction to the other Mu, Jomy is taken to a classroom where the differences between the Mu and humans are explained to him. It is explained to Jomy that the Mu are born just like everybody else but chosen by (nature?), granted special powers, and decide to gather together. Jomy is still greatly conflicted about who he is, and which side is right, human or Mu. He then meets some Mu children, and then gets into a fight with some older Mu. He then wanders through the ship and runs into a woman named Physis who tells him that Soldier Blue needs his help, this only confuses Jomy more.

     Later, Jomy meets Soldier blue in person and demands to return home, Soldier Blue agrees and tells Leo to take him home. Overall, I think Towards the Terra is developing nicely as a science fiction anime, the story has nice pacing to it, and most of the main players are interesting. The animation is very low key and subdued, the opening and closing music is very well done. This series is very watchable, but don’t expect a high energy level like SiFi anime like Vandred, or Stellvia.
