  1. Planetes en mi opinión mejora mucho con este segundo volumen. La llegada de nuevos personajes como Hakim, Tabate e incluso Leonov dan la oportunidad y el espacio a nuevas “phases”. El punto en común suele ser la madurez personal y psicológica del protagonista Hachimaki, en una labor tan arriesgada como es la de ser astronauta.
