Planetes is getting better, in my opinion, episodes 3 and 4. Episode 3 was dark because they were already talking about their final wills. A lot of people disliked her in this episode because she was emotional. They didn't like how she treated Hoshino or how she kidnapped his body. Tanabe's actions didn't bother me due to the episode's resolution. Episode 4 was excellent. A rich person was on board for this episode and he was the epitome of a spoiled brat. While he was tolerable at the beginning of the episode, he became increasingly intolerable as the episode wore on. That was hard to watch as the rich kid chucked everything at the crew. It was painful to watch the older men in the crew suck up to this kid. I liked how the crew at the end of the episode stood up for themselves.
