Dogasu's Backpack | Movies & Specials Guide | Planetarium Show
Satoshi and his friends are visiting PAXA ("Pokémon Aerospace eXploration Agency"), an orgranization that conducts research and development related to outer space on a daily basis. A female astronaut associated with PAXA excites our heroes with stories about the wonders of space and about the probability of the existence of extraterrestial pokemon. She also tells them about the threat being posed by floating space debris and how it's getting worse and worse. Suddenly, a siren goes off! It seems as if the Rocket-Dan has infiltrated PAXA and is planning to rob it! Things are getting intense!
In the middle of all this, the man-made sattelite's control system is malfuctioning! If nothing's done about it then the satellite will collide with the giant space debris out there and add itself to the trash floating out in space!
If the space debris fills up the space around our planet then humanity's road to the stars will be closed off forever.
What can Satoshi and his friends do to overcome the threat of outer space filling up? Work together with your friends and use your bonds to cut your way to the future!
More detailed synopsis / my impressions of the special
This is an original animated story created specifically for the Konica Minolta planetariums. The show is projected on the planetarium's dome-like ceiling and makes full use of the space provided to surround the audience with images and sound.
"PAXA" is an obvious reference to JAXA, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency. A similar reference was made in the Best Wishes! episode "Hiun City! The Fushide Panic!" in which the IXA, the Isshu Exploration Agency, delivered information to Araragi-Hakase.
The show will debut in Tokyo and will then travel to other parts of Japan at a later date.
