In Edo in the mid-1800's, fireworks maker Seikichi Tamaya and his friends struggle to live under the harsh morality laws imposed by the strict city councilor, which ban all luxuries, including fireworks. One day, a strange girl stops by Sekichi's shop with an equally strange request: she wants Sekichi to build a firework that can reach the moon.

Mixed Feelings
Now that helpful votes don't exist anymore, I'm completely untethered and can review the most obscure anime possible without feeling any pressure to review seasonal stuff. What better way to kick off the new MAL than with Oh Edo Rocket, an anime that you've never heard of, and nobody cares about.

Oh Edo Rocket was based on a stage play that heavily relies on political satire. It apparently used the Edo period as a metaphor for the Japanese politics of the 1990s and the reactionary policies that accompanied the lost decade.

*Insert synopsis here*

The show doesn't take itself very seriously at all. The show is heavy with humour, and is quite fond of self-reference, as well as some pop culture (Such as the very apt 'Men in Black'). It also has no problems breaking the fourth wall (ie. admitting it's fictional), and you'll regularly see modern conveniences, such as the TVs used to show some flashbacks.
The humour is well executed, and despite the numerous comedy series I've seen, I never really felt this series' ...
