I added the cover of MAGIUS Rocket Girl RPG light novel to my previous post.

Thanks for AnimeNewsService for providing the cover.

Some info about the anime :)

From AnimeNfo:


A high school girl Morita Yukari visits Axia of the Solomon Islands in order to look for her father who became lost during his honeymoon trip. There, she meets a man named Nasuda of Solomon Space Agency, and she is hired to work part-time. That job is an astronaut. She is chosen as one of the crews of the first Japanese manned spaceship only because she is little and light. Where is her future going to?
Genre: Seinen/Shounen, Sci-fi

Will this be romance as well, or not?

Looks like I'm not the only one who thought Stratos 4, especially this picture:

I thought it was also Stratos 4 ...

Vexx 2006-10-20 23:17

How can I *not* at least take a look at a title called "Rocket Girls"? :)
(Even if it is derivative)

Apparently, the opening single is going to be ICHIKO's 3rd single RISE and the ending is going to be Ashita no Iki no Bus ni Notte by misae. Also, an insert song called Rocket Girl is mentioned (along with the rest) here.

Those were my first thoughts upon seeing the pictures, but now that I have read the preliminary synopsis I am reflecting upon the whole story.

Maybe it is going to follow the theme of it-is-my-dream-to-go-traveling-into-space like Twin Spica did.

LoweGear 2007-02-18 10:21

Judging from the initial synopsis though, I don't think that'll be the case. I'm baffled on how you can be a part-time astronaut (well, anything's possible as far as anime goes), and looks like our heroine will unwillingly have to adjust to her new life in space somewhat ^^;;

The title and theme certainly got my interest, being a space nut and all that XD

Kensuke 2007-02-18 13:59

I guess if you want realism you go for Moonlight Mile instead of this, but that is just gut feeling. Just three days before first episode airs...

eggplant 2007-02-21 11:17

Saw episode 1.
Spoiler for Episode 1:

NeoSam 2007-02-21 11:44

Hopefully someone will fansub this :) a loli fest show shouldn't be ignored :heh:

Anyway, I updated the first post of this thread with the new shounen light novel series Rocket Girl (published under the shounen label Fujimi Fantasia Bunko), in which the first volume of it got released on October 2006.

Even if they tried to make it a kids' show it won't be a kids show, its broadcasted at midnight afterall.

Screenshot for Episode 1:

So why not use a monkey instead of a budding teenage girls when the requirement for the "part time job" can be fulfilled by a monkey? Obviously, hardly anyone would want to watch a show if its main feature is monkey fan-service. I've thoroughly enjoyed the episode. It was funny when........

Spoiler for episode 1:

Animation-wise, I think it's better not to expect much from the series as it is evident from the CG used in the first episode. Looking forward to the next.
