I'd like this to get more exposure - it deserves it!
I had only seen this as a picture in a Megami magazine but as a space buff all my life, I bought it and feel it was one of the most enjoyable anime titles I've seen in awhile, ranking it with AMG and "Kaliedo Star". It's literally "Nadia, Secret of Blue Water" meets "The Right Stuff"! It's about a private budding Japanese Space Agency based in the Solomon islands who winds up using teenage girls as astronauts to save weight. Their plan is to be able to repair satellites and ends with them coming to aid NASA.

Breakaway from standard anime schoolgirl fare
I've been looking for quality hard sci-fi since "Planetes". (It seems to be completely absent in American productions.) "Rocket Girls" isn't on that level, but once you get past the schoolgirl show conventions (Japanese school girls are capable of outperforming *anyone* -- even NASA-trained astronauts! -- and will have adventures with a few improbable happenstances along the way), this short series is simply a lot of fun. Watching the main character grow up from an impulsive spaz to a passionate, but thoughtful professional kept me hooked. There's more than a passing nod to scientific accuracy in this show; it's nice to have some light entertainment where my brain can participate, too. (The science isn't *flawless*, but they don't shy away from considering some of the ways space travel is more difficult than, and just plain different from, a lot of other things people do.) I wish there were English voice-overs for people who dislike subtitles. Otherwise, it's hard to find flaws with this set.Read full review
