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

Recommendations

Art style is *very* Similar to Stratos 4 as is the technical detail. The story is pretty straightforward, but you feel for the main character as she realizes what she wants to do with her life. A big recommendation here!
