Welcome to Edo, a town where the finer things in life are strictly forbidden. You can’t have fun, you can’t earn money, and you certainly can’t strap a princess to a rocket and blast her into space – but none of that will stop Seikichi. Making things explode is his calling, and if the little man with the big rocket can send his lady to the moon, the city of Edo just might become bearable again.

This show is a pretty solid worth Owning.
Overall Rating 4/5
The show is about Tamaya Seikichi, a famous fireworks maker from Japanese history. A rather fictitious account with aliens, ninjas, and a plan to reach the moon with fireworks.
If I remember right, that was the plan… The animation style is a bit odd but don’t let that hold you back. The show has some solid comedy and quite the cast of unusual characters. The old guy in the wheelchair really has a funny surprise. This show seems to have always been available very cheap. Do yourself a favor and pick it up.
Theme Songs 4/5
This series has some catchy uniquely odd and good music. I never skipped the opening or ending
NO spoilers, the end was well done. When you saw where it was headed, you wondered how they would wrap it up. I liked the ending for this one.
When I first saw advertisements for this show, I thought it looked kind of fun, but I wasn't really interested in it. But when I read a review for it on ANN that praised it and its excellent dub, I thought I'd give it a shot (I prefer to watch anime in Japanese, but I always appreciate a good dub). I watched the first episode online to check it out and it was suitably funny, so I picked up the set to watch with my sisters. We all enjoyed it greatly. The characters are awesomely wacky, the setting excellent, and the plot moves along at a good pace. The dub really is excellent, and I don't think that the series would have been quite as good in Japanese. We did watch a little of it in Japanese to compare, and while the voice acting for the Japanese dub was quite good, the humor was lacking. The English dub adds quite a few jokes and adapts the humor to a more western style. I think that they managed to make it much more enjoyable to western viewers while still preserving the spirit of the original.
If you enjoy wacky humor (for example Kodocha: The First Season,Sgt. Frog: Season One) then you should be sure to give Oh! Edo Rocket a try. It is a solid, humorous, and entertaining show. (Oh, and did I mention there are aliens?)
Even if you're not into anime, give this one a try. You won't be sorry.
It tells the story of firework maker Seikichi and the eccentric residents of Fuari row-house as they band together to help the strange and beautiful alien girl Sora return to the moon.
