Now that the whole series is subed and available, I just stated watching it today. The first two episodes were good, and I'm looking forward to the rest of it.

One minor gripe about the otherwise excellent fansub. I really hate it when subbers "invert" Japanese names. Its bad enough when its done in a dub, but at least in the dub you don't hear a character say "Morita Yukari-san" when the sub reads "Yukari Morita-san".

Heh. Translating from or to a culture with an inverted name order is problematic for the translators, I guess.

Rocket Girls vs Stratos 4

The question was posed whether this was a copy of Stratos 4 or whether Stratos 4 was a copy of this. Putting aside the difference in plot; Stratos 4 came out in 2003 thereabouts. Rocket Girls came out in 2007. Draw your own conclusions.

This is much better than Stratos 4 imo, I couldn't even finish 1 eps of Stratos 4 before dropping it.

The two Rocket Girls light novels came out in 1995, according to the first post in this thread. Stratos 4 was an original anime in 2003, according to ANN and ja.Wikipedia.

Stratos 4 vs Rocket Girls

Rocket Girls book came in 1995 eh? Guess I stand somewhat corrected. I stand firm however on the difference in plots.

Well, I finished the series up last night and I really enjoyed it. From the breif descriptions I read of the series before hand, and especially from the pictures of the "rocket girls" in their skin-tight space suits I had thought this was going to be a fan-service comedy, but it was actually an enjoyable adventure series with some interesting characters and a fairly realistic real life space exploration background.

Well worth watching, in my opinion.

Question Song Lyrics

In the 3rd episode, one sees Matsuri singing a song called "Amasalaya". It is a very beautiful tune. Is it a real song and, if so, what are the lyrics?

That's the primary inventor, Dava Newman, on the right. Looks like she'd fit right in with the gang in the Solomons. The complete gallery is here.

Following up on my last post, Rocket Girls has been named Best of the Moon 2008 in the "Youth High Frontier Fiction" category at OutOfTheCradle.net. You can see the entire list here:

(And if you scroll down to the "Youth Moon Fiction" category, you'll see that the winner there is a book by yours truly... )

I'm guessing you're the author of the "adventure tale for the young lasses" as the commentator put it. I see Amazon is down to two copies of your book with a promise to get more, and both the Amazon reviewers are quite positive. Kudos!

The Rocket Girls novel is coming to America!

A release date of July 20. How appropriate!
