Storyline

Adventurous Yukari Morita embarks on a quest to find her birth father Hiroshi, an astronaut who abandoned her mother on his wedding night. She tracks him down in the Solomon Islands, at the SSA (Solomon Space Agency). She meets the base director, Nasuda Isao, who is in a predicament: the SSA is in danger of closing down due to continuous failures at launching full-size spacecraft into orbit. The only alternative for the base is to utilize a small spacecraft, but the problem is that it's much too small for adults to ride. Isao offers Yukari a deal: he will help her find Hiroshi, and in return she must take a job at the base. Yukari starts out with the simple job of pressing buttons... but soon Isao talks her and her friends, her stepsister Matsuri and the shy geek Akane Miura, into becoming Japan's youngest ever astronauts!

They are all completely bonkers…
15 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

There isn't really a lot to say about 'Rocket Girls'… but there are some things that need to be said.

One could sum up the whole series as being the punchline of a (rather inappropriate) joke that started with "Have you heard, Japan has it's own space program now.", and that's also the beauty of it.

It's writing is surprisingly clever, to an extent that even explains the crewing of the Space Program with 16 year old schoolgirls. I'm also surprised with the utter lack of of floating emotes and other cliché stuff that's usually making me dislike Japanese cartoons.

Bottom line is, the series is educational, cleverly written and at times awesomely funny - something I'd recommend to everyone with at least a basic interest in space flight.
