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.

This show is a pretty solid worth Owning.

Overall Rating 8/10
The show is about Tamaya Seikichi, a famous fireworks maker from Japanese history. A rather fictitious account with aliens, ninjas, and a plan to reach the moon with fireworks.

If I remember right, that was the plan… The animation style is a bit odd but don’t let that hold you back. The show has some solid comedy and quite the cast of unusual characters. The old guy in the wheelchair really has a funny surprise. This show seems to have always been available very cheap. Do yourself ...

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.

Preliminary (2/26 eps)
My patience wears thin. I'm sure that 3 years ago or something, I would have watched at least 6 episodes, and perhaps 5-8 years ago, I would have watched the entire thing.
Oh! Edo Rocket is a show made in 2007, but it really feels like it was made in 1995 for how crappy the animation is. It feels like I'm watching Orphen, but instead of a crappy formulaic adventure magic show, it's instead a crappy formulaic comedy action show.
I don't really care what genre it is, or when it was made, the show should have some sort of structure and pacing. Oh! Edo Rocket ...
