Every elementary school distributes chores that students don't want, like cleaning up the coat room or monitoring the hallways, but Yuri Otani has a chore that gives her real cause for complaint: rounding up aliens. Put on the Anti-Alien Team of her sixth-grade class, Yuri has to wear a special alien on her head to protect her while she battles newly arriving aliens every day. With all of the added danger of being on the Anti-Alien Team, Yuri hopes she at least gets extra credit. ~ Cammila Albertson, All Movie Guide

A trend setter... by tommyk November 25, 2011 - 11:27 AM PST
It's good. I don't like "middle school girl" anime, usually. While it's got some standard stuff, it's like no other before or since. But, it just ends like a toilet flush and leaves you totally confused about several things. If you follow the manga to figure out what is going on here, that also ends with another flush, although you get a little more story, but you will be even more confused. Finally, be warned: no one in this has a nose. They may have a dot, but no actual nose.

Worth watching but depressing by manuelvillanueva October 23, 2004 - 12:45 PM PDT

A bit morose. The main character becomes traumatized after assuming the responsibility of defending her school from aliens, especially since she's scared of aliens and has to wear one on her head! Unfortunately, we don't get to see how her unpleasant situation unfolds as this is the only DVD made so far. It reminded me of Lain: cerebral and depressing.

good, but be warned by SeijinZero July 3, 2004 - 9:41 PM PDT

very fun anime series. cute, but still has action, adventure, and a lil gore. kinda short, and doesn't have an ending. it's kinda an introduction to the Manga, and you'll have to read it to find out what happens.
