Interesting point about the interior of the Astra. Although it is equipped with futuristic stuff like a faster-than-light drive, a gravity generator, a deflector shield and a (broken) water recycler, its other facilities like the infirmary and pantry aren't as high tech.
 
Man, makes me wish I've got the Volumes. At least one of them includes schematics for the Astra.

Chapter 36, sooner than predicted
 
I hope we get to keep the Luca Javelin
Also, if anyone asks, no Kanata can't wear his anti-gravity shoes alongside his crust suit
 
And credits to a zoom-in on the Japanese side, the ID tag roughly reads:
 
Glenn (Glen?) (something)
2012.12.17
Blood Type A
Seattle W.A.

Chapter 37

Also, contrary to what I had posted before in spoiler tags, it is supposed to be "3 months" not "4 months", as Shinohara had clarified on Twitter. I passed that link on to the Viz team myself.


 

Also, sorry for the smaller pictures this time, will have bigger ones next week

Also, Shinohara said on Twitter that he only noticed this after the fact: Paulina looks just like Sasuko

So...  An asteroid was due to hit, the continents are slightly different shapes, and Asia has a gigantic hole in it.

 

Yeah.

I'm trying to get a confirmation with Viz on whether "Galem" is the official spelling for the Planet #5.

 

In the meantime, I look forward to Ch 39 raws tomorrow

And before anyone fusses over it, Shinohara had answered on Twitter that the Easter Egg of this chapter is but an Easter Egg

The translator has been doing a decent enough job, but if there's one thing I must complain about, it's their "consistency" when translating certain terms

Someone in the Viz comments did actually speculate Charce was the clone of the King himself, so bravo.
And you were definitely right about the killer being Charce.

 

I cannot understand his motives.  Once the plot failed, he had no more reason to continue it.  Why is he working to defend a king he hates?  Going home is obviously a death sentence, but there's no reason he has to.  He could have stranded them all on Vilavurs and he at least would have been better off.

Supposedly Viz have no switched over to simultaneous release for Astra Lost in Space

I'm not sure if we've now moved onto Saturday instead, but for now, here's Chapter 42:

The only thing I can think of is that since Seira could very well still be alive, she's been held hostage in order to coerce Charce into being the hired gun.

 

Based on Ch 34, the originals envision Charce dying in the process. So even if Charce does succeed in returning alone to Planet Astra, it should still be something deemed unacceptable, therefore pointless.

Maybe the minimal requirement is for everyone else to be dead, and he's hoping that's enough to spare him and Seira?

Oh. Oh dear... I think I have it.

If they're smart, they'll put Charce in cryo-freeze.

[edit]

If they were smart... They'd have been using cryo-freeze all along. Less mouths to feed, less water needed, longer space-hops.
