If granny had a child at 18-20 years of age and her daughter also had a child around the same age, it's perfectly possibile that granny is about 80.
And she isn't exactly "in such active condition". Don't you see that she constantly lays in bed and has difficulty walking?

^Hmm normally I'd click on the spoiler without hesitation, but since it's this show I'm not sure if her introduction will be straightforward. I think I'll just wait and be surprised.

In Japan, it is not exactly a miracle for 90 year olds to be alive. And it's not like she's running marathons or anything. It's one of the more realistic parts of the anime really.

epi 8 is brilliant, I loved how it tied all the bits together without me realising that the bits were there in the first place.

have a child at 20, that child has a child when you're 40, then that** child has a child when you're 60.... they're a teenager and you're only in your 70s.
Change the marriage-baby age to 16 and its 16/32/48.

(can't believe I have to actually plot that out)

however, no clue as to the mystery yet.

She looks about Erio's age. . . Is she not?

In the opening, I thought she looked around. . .eight? About that.

On the official page, she also looks quite young... around Erio's age, I'd say.
Does that surprise you?

I can't find any info on spacesuit-girl's age, on the official site, on Japanese Wikipedia, or in the magazine images we've seen. So we're left with just judging by her appearance, which as we all know in anime is not a perfect guide. But I'd expect her to be the same age as Erio, or maybe slightly younger.

In Nishida Asako's twitter, she mentions a new 1/24 plastic model of an itasha (decorated car) featuring Erio.
Spoiler for Erio itasha images:
Spoiler for Erio wallpaper for iPhone:
Nishida-san is also doing illustrations for a spin-off short story, to be written by the show's lead writer, Ayana Yunico, and possibly to be a BD/DVD extra. In her own twitter, Ayana-san praises Asako-neesan to the skies, says she loves her, snd that it is great that she is in this world. She also says she is fascinated by Meme and can't stop thinking of stories to write about her and Makoto.... This may not be one of them, but I do think that is Meme in front.
Spoiler for short-story illustration draft:

Okay it seems like people here still think that there are sci-fi elements in this series. Doesn't the fact that Erio was just a normal human disprove that?

I'm betting there will be some sort of alien twist at the end.
