Summary: "Though this series finished its run in seinen magazine Comic Flapper just last year, its simple artwork and wistful tone make its first volume read like an instant classic Though the story's foundation is set firmly in hard sci-fi, it is its heroine's poignant and occasionally whimsical inner life that really defines its voice Hopeful, charming, and tinged with sadness, Twin Spica leaves us wanting more. Highly recommended." -Manga Bookshelf "Twin Spica is told with an uncommonly graceful blend of optimism and melancholy. Kou Yaginuma takes his sci-fi premise seriously, and he treats his characters with warmth and intelligence. Strongly recommended." -MangaReporter "The storytelling is direct and simple without being didactic, filled with the kind of characters that younger readers will recognize and embrace as true to their own experiences. At the same time, however, Twin Spica''s subtexts are rich enough to sustain an adult's interest as the supplemental stories '2015: Fireworks' and 'Asumi' attest A beautiful, thought-provoking book for star gazers of all ages." -The Manga Critic.

In this penultimate volume tragedy strikes the TSS. It was not long since the first class of the astronaut course got to experience great pride when one of their best was selected to join NASA. With those feelings still fresh the academy is then shaken to its core and one member may not be able to return to her duties now that her guiding light has faded.
Born in 1973 in the Iidabashi district of Tokyo, comic artist Kou Yaginuma made his debut with the Twin Spica pilot story The Fireworks of 2015 (originally published in the July 2000 issue of Media Factory's Comic Flapper magazine). That heartfelt story coupled with Yaginuma's warm artwork won the young artist won over many comic fans on his way to becoming the year's biggest new artist. He followed his debut with a follow up mini-series called Asumi focusing on the early childhood of Twin Spica's young heroine Asumi Kamokawa. The Asumi series was such a runaway success Media Factory signed Yaginuma up to pen Twin Spica for Comic Flapper in the Fall of 2001.
Twin Spica is Yagunuma's English language debut.
