The local government of Edo has banned all things that could be considered luxuries amongst the people, including extravagant displays of fireworks. The local police continue harassing the citizens who try to defy the law, and many are shoved into poverty as a result. 
One of the residents of a poor rowhouse in Edo, a boy named Seikichi Tamaya, continues to evade the authorities as he makes and launches fireworks around the city. However, one day, he receives a strange request from a blue-haired, blue-eyed girl named Sora. She asks him to make a rocket capable of sending her to the Moon. Though Seikichi decides to help her out with his neighbors around the rowhouse, he has to contend with several threats: the nosy Inspector Akai, the strange Men In Black, and rumors of mysterious "Sky Beasts" who are draining young girls of their blood.
