A galactic sci-fi interpretation of Jules Verne's ”Two Years' Vacation”. Thirteen children wander through space in the training ship Jainus looking to reunite with their parents whom they were separated with due to the ongoing war between humans and aliens. Designed by Toyoo Ashida and directed by Toshiyuki Kanda, this anime series full of sympathetic characters and emotionally moving drama was met with critical acclaim. The main robot 'Round Vernian' was designed by none other than Kunio Okawara. Will the children be able to reunite with their parents?
