What were your first thoughts when you heard about the title name? Well, my first thought was "this is lame title for a series, so I\'m guessing its gonna be a pretty lame series." Well... I can tell you, I was wrong, really wrong and I don\'t regret being wrong because it\'s one of the best random title\'s I\'ve ever picked up.

The story focuses on the adventures of 3 main characters, Yukari Morita, Matsuri and Akane Miura who comes in later in the series. Although, their dreams of becoming astronauts wasn\'t intentional, it just sort of happen when Yukari wanted to find some answers read more

Add two points to the score if you're a girl between 10 and 13. The first half of this is series is pretty enjoyable; after episode five I'd have given it at least a 8. The story is far fetched but the characters are fun and the writing is crisp but after that the story goes from far fetched to ridiculous to absurd. Major characters vanish from sight, others are introduced but add nothing and the lead character turns into just another plucky girl adventurer. It's rare to see a series self destruct as quickly as this. Rocket Girls is to science fiction as Scooby read more

What they can build is a smaller tried-and-tested rocket which can get a high school girl into space. After some convincing, our main protagonist Morita Yukari joins the SSA as the first high schooler to become an astronaut.

The series examines some of the foundational principles of space flight in a very entertaining manner. For instance, Morita becomes rather concerned when read more

Rocket Girls

I've tried writing a review for this at least 4 times now and I just can't gather my words to make sense. I picked up Rocket Girls expecting a cute slice of life about cuties who do things with rockets..... What I ended up watching was an amazing and incredible anime about becoming astronauts.

Rocket Girls takes place on Solomon Island where we have three girls, Yukari, Matsuri and Akane as our mega cute astronauts. At first, the story seems to be very slice of life, but within the first 10 minutes, there is clearly something more at work here. Yukari is trying read more
