The setting of this anime/manga takes place in a universe where humans, aliens, and robots live together. Though there are many “cosmoses”, the Sakura Cosmos is the main cosmos where most events take place initially. The world-building is intricate and mindblowing, as proven by the fact that most of the planets have just the right combination of futurism and fantasy.
