Plot Summary:


The story revolves around a highschool boy named Niwa Makoto. He lives with his aunt’s family since his parents are away on business. It is there where he meets his mysterious cousin of the same age Touwa Erio — who happens to tie a futon mattress around her upper body and is a self-proclaimed alien. Her staple food is pizza. Erio had been missing for half a year and was found floating in the sea. She doesn't remember anything about what happened during that period of time, but she began to think that it was the act of an alien and wanders the neighborhood wrapped in the futon.


My reaction: WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON? Yea, major confusion from the first episode. The direction of this anime is unclear at this moment, and is... Strange. The strange characters, namely Futon-chan (girl above), are the drive of this show so far. Apparently she warns the protagonist, Niwa Makoto, about the Earth being targeted by aliens. She claims to be an alien as well. This episode shows the progression of Niwa Makoto moving from the countryside to the city - where he is told that it's watched by aliens. This being a SHAFT adaption, there's bound to be interesting events.

'I loved the first episode.. The way she chow down on the pizza without having to leave her mattress was splendid. '

Wasn't as bad as I was expecting from SHAFT, but the ED song is absolutely terrible.

I think it has great potential and SHAFT have clearly put their all into it. The music is...odd, but strangely addictive. Futon-chan is adorable.

The first episode really is strange. Strange in a way that makes me want to keep watching it.

I loved how she snarfed that half a pizza like a trout catching a fly. but that there also was a later consequence.

Wow, I donno what to think...Shinbo what on earth did you create this time?

Look familiar? Chin up!


Shouldn't be the only thing, grown up Ami is moe and the school from Clannad also makes a debut. So all is good but just what the heck is going on??? Typical Shaft humour I guess... Still, I will carry on watching at least a couple more eps. Shaft do not let me down.

Also the OP track is horrendous, honestly I could sing better...it feels like they are trying to reproduce something similar to Renai circulation but failing badly.

I really enjoyed it, great visuals - great characters and voices - (i wish Ai Nonaka was my 39-year-old drop dead gorgeous aunt)
I really like the style of humour in this, atleast compared to alot of shows this season which are fairly bland.

Only problem is the OP and ED songs, don't feel anything in them other than something to skip every time they come on.

It was weird, crazy and unexpected.

I LOVED IT especially the girl. She was cute ♥

I someone have a feeling that there is a dark back story hidden somewhere.

All in all, its worth adding to my watch list.

Oh My God.


Now that is stunning beauty right there.


Anyways, I LOVED the first episode.

And also like NoBreyner, anything that SHAFT creates is destined to be great.

AND THOSE LIPS!

I definitely like how the Aunt has the same Voice Actor from one of SHAFTS most famous anime, Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei from the character Kafuka. She fits this cheerful aunt perfectly imo.

I lol'ed how she threw her into the little door.

AND THE PIZZA EATING! Epic.

But I think the biggest thing for me is how the main character is quite observant. Sure he talks aloud when nobody is near him, but I think he is a unique type of main character.

Well this is definitely going to be a unique one. Totally watching it

I'm only moments into watching the first ep for the first time, and I had to replay the first fifteen seconds three times just so I know what the hell was going on. That and I thought her saying beep, beep beep was cute too.

So the aunt is Jojo, or should I say it the way they do and just call her yoyo? The op/ed are pretty good for a weird but fun show. The op is just as bad as Arakawa under the bridge's, but it seems to match the shows theme.
