Part of what makes this so special to me is the story which takes place on a Earth where aliens are commonplace, and neko girls (cat girls) are considered to be just as much a part of everyday life as the aliens. It is within this world that Kazuto Tokino decides to run his late grandfather's bathhouse despite protests from his parents and sister who consider it to be a "money pit". One night when working in the bathhouse an alien named Princess Valkyrie, who is running from a marriage her parents arranged for her, destroys the bathhouse when her spaceship crashes into it. She also mortally wounds Kazuto, however, she is able to save his life with a magical kiss that gives him half of her soul, and turns her into an 8 year old child. She can return to her adult form by kissing Kazuto, but it only lasts for a short time, and is mostly done when there is a need to protect Kazuto.
Princess Valkyrie is then stranded on Earth in the form of an 8 year old child with the mind of one too, unable to look after herself even though the entire solar system is out searching for her.Read more ›
The universe in this anime is a cross between sci-fi and fantasy, you'll see aliens, spaceships and fantasy based creatures like; catgirls, sheep women, fairies and demons. They live and act as normal people do and sometimes get into mischief. I really liked the concept here, but it was poorly
executed. By making the alien and fantasy creatures act and live
like regular human, it detracts from novelty of having these unique creatures living among humans. There are twelve episodes over three volumes (discs), contains comedy and nudity. Even though there is no sex in the show, I cannot recommend it to people under 16 years of age because of the fan service. However the mindless nature of the show will repel older viewers and the anime savy. I don't think it's worth a purchase, but makes a good rental. I recommend the animes called "Oh, My Goddess" and "Video Girl Ai".
The anime has some excellent music from Melocure as well.
The strange thing that the fist episode seems to take place later on and the second episode goes back and seems to actually be what one would consider the first episode. Still, it is worth watching as it is a very well done anime.
