About Rocket Girls Blu-ray

Rocket Girls contains episodes 1-12 of the anime from Mook Animation and directed by Hiroshi Aoyama in standard definition on a blu-ray disc.

When Yukari Morita decided to look for her missing father who disappeared in the South Seas, she had no idea how far her journey would take her. Just traveling to the Solomon Islands is a long way for a high school girl to go on her own, but then Yukari runs into an astronaut from the Solomon Space Association, which has been trying to build a rocket powerful enough launch a man into space. Upon meeting the petite Yukari, however, SSA director Nasuda realizes that she's small enough to go up in a less powerful rocket the SSA has already built! So he offers her a deal: if Yukari agrees to become their astronaut, the SSA will help find her missing father! Will Yukari have the right stuff to blast off in the wildest space quest ever? Find out in Rocket Girls!

Special Features: Clean Opening Animation and Clean Closing Animation.

A Very Fun Ride

by

Sure, teenage girls as astronauts is ridiculous. However, this show comes up with a plausible reason (plausible for an anime anyway) for small Asian girls as astronauts. The result is several very fun rides into space.

The Smallest Astronauts

by

In this universe, Japan has its own space program, but they’ve struck a problem. Their latest rocket explodes upon launching; their backers are threatening, and their very reliable older rocket cannot lift a full grown man unless they starve him.

Then the forces of the SSA encounter a short, skinny Japanese high school girl seeking her lost father. Suddenly, during the yelling Yukari dishes out to all concerned afterwards, the man in charge of the SSA realizes that a short, skinny, female teenager might be able to do everything a fully grown man can do WITHOUT blowing the weight limit and gets an idea.

On the promise by Nasuda to start looking for her father, Yukari agrees to be their astronaut. What follows are astronaut training, the assorted weirdos and loons willing to try so hard to achieve Japan’s first manned space program, a couple more short, skinny, teenage girl astronauts, and a couple of space missions that work about as safely…

as Apollo 13 did.
