** spoiler alert ** Space is big and empty and cosmic and junk. And if you got on a picnic in your spacesuit for days and days and somehow don't completely run out of oxygen, even though you should've, you'll hallucinate a cosmic white cat. Who'll be all mysterious and and mystical and stuff.

And then, one of your few female crewmates will try to fix your crazy self by getting naked. For pages and pages. Making the manga embarrassing to read on the bus. Though miraculously, those pages weren't torn out of the library book.

Oh yea, and you're totally in love with that chick from volume 2. Or something. So let's get married.

Meanwhile, where did the plot go? Not to Jupiter. That's for sure.

Then there's an extra about the main character's father when the main character's mother was pregnant with him. And the father's on Mars and playing baseball, while the mother's in premature labor. And maybe baseball's a metaphor or something. I have no idea.

Oh, and there's hints that the girl is an alien. Guess we'll find out in volume 4. And... other volume 4.
