Oh! Edo Rocket - Episode 1 () 24m
This is a serio-comic combination of the legend of Princess Kaguya and the life of the fireworks maker Tamaya Seikichi. Based on a stage play, this story takes place during the Tempo Reforms (1842), where residents of Edo are forbidden to indulge in luxuries of any kind. In order to avoid trouble, our hero sneaks out of the city to test his fireworks. He manages to just avoid being caught, with the help of the motley group of rowhouse tenants he has as friends. Later when he returns home, a beautiful girl is waiting for him, and she wants him to build a very special firework... If that weren't complicated enough, special forces are engaged in a battle with monsters in the forest. And though not immediately noticeable, at least four of our players are not human.
History, drama, comedy, evil officials, secret societies, serial killings, cute girls, a beautiful man, and a very likeable and energetic boy who likes to blow things up... What else could you ask for? How about: spaceships, swing, odd super-pwers, Puffy, aliens, playboy bureaucrats, karakuri mecha, morph machines, the fourth-wall in rubble, and... a little romance... but wait, there's more!) [gdh]
