Kenta Shinohara’s Astra Lost in Space launched in Shueisha’s Shonen Jump+ in May 2016. The series, which ran through December 30, 2017, spans five compiled volumes.
Viz Media holds the rights to the title, which they describe as:
What starts as a pleasant class trip to a planet five light-years away from Earth becomes a nightmare survival trip back home from 5,000 light-years away.
It’s the year 2063, and interstellar space travel has become the norm. Eight students from Caird High School and one child set out on a routine planet camp excursion. While there, the students are mysteriously transported 5,000 light-years away to the middle of nowhere! Will they ever make it back to Earth?!
It’s the first day of Planet Camp, and Aries Spring couldn’t be more excited! She, along with eight other strangers, leave for Planet McPa for a weeklong excursion. Soon after they arrive, however, a mysterious orb appears and transports them into the depths of space where an unknown spaceship awaits them.
