(WARNING: BE WARY OF SPOILERS- READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!)

Personally, I'm a sucker for any and all shows with nerdy characters involved, so when I read about this show's premise I figured it was worth a shot. I watched all 12 episodes and what do you know, it was a pretty fun ride. Before you start to make judgements about the brevity of the series, just realize that this series isn't really supposed to be a grandiose journey with incredible twists and turns... it's just a fun ride that lets you rekindle your faith in love and friendship (as corny as that sounds).

The premise is simple: Narue (pronounced Narr-oo-ae) is a young girl who is, incidentally, half-alien. Her alien father was sent to investigate our planet many years ago and married a human woman. I don't want to really spoil anything, but the reasons behind their coming together weren't exactly under the best of circumstances. From time to time, the Galaxy Federation checks in on Narue and her father to make sure they aren't revealing any confidential information to mankind.

The second biggest character is Kazuto, or "Kazu", as Narue refers to him. As an otaku (anime-lover, for those uninclined to such terms), Kazu isn't exactly the most impressive, striking guy in middle school. He's caring and sensitive, so naturally, he falls for the mysterious pretty girl named Narue. The two begin to go out together, and Kazuto learns he's not just dating any girl; he's dating a half-alien hybrid!

Other characters show up, like Yagi, the alien-obsessed purple-haired girl; Maruo, the bald-headed, flamboyant pal of Kazuto; and Kanaka, the older-yet-younger sister of Narue (it's a bit complicated; I understood it instantly, since I have read about it, but some people might not get it at first).

The World of Narue has an alien girl trying to fit Earth society. The trouble is that the story really does not focus that much on the alien part, allowing Narue to truly overcome all barriers with ease. Well, they had to move fast with only 12 episodes. That, and maybe a tad too much fan services, is the only real complains I can say about the anime.
The artwork is great, the development of the characters is touching and brings real warmth to the events, and they have cute combat scenes. Well, they do. Combat bunny girl robots!
The story touches on everything from the first date, cosplay, bikinis, the science behind traveling at light speed. you name it! A real gem.
I don't think I know any of the voice actors, which is good but sad. Good because now I have more people to look up and see what other work they have done. Sad because many people, not knowing them, may not end up picking up this series.

He was married once before and had girl. His first wife split from him. He married 2 wife and had his other girl. In short
both girl meet. Thing got interesting. It good for kids who are old enough to understand.
