About the show:
Makoto Niwa just moved to the city to live with his aunt Meme after his parents were reassigned to
work overseas. He is perfectly fine with that, saying it will give him the chance to live the dream life of an
adolescent boy. He keeps track of the things he does by assigning “points” to them—positive or
negative—and adds them up on a regular basis to grade his adolescent life. And then he discovers Meme
has a secret daughter (and self-proclaimed alien) named Erio. He finds her rolling around by the front
door of Meme’s house wrapped up in a futon. It is then he realizes that his dream adolescent life will not
come true, and begins a life of experiences that are out of this world.

  • If this is the director who did masterworks like Puella Magi and Bakemonogatari, I’ll definitely love it!

  • This was my favorite show of the season at the time that it was airing. Glad to see they’re leaving the original Japanese voices, I’m tired of hearing the same American cast voice every single anime.
