Overview

Naota Nandaba is an ordinary sixth grader living in a city where nothing amazing ever seems to happen. After his brother Tasuku leaves town to play baseball in America, Naota takes it upon himself to look after everything Tasuku left behind—from his top bunk bed to his ex-girlfriend Mamimi Samejima, who hasn't stopped clinging to Naota since Tasuku left. Little does Naota know, however, that his mundane existence is on the verge of being changed forever: enter Haruko Haruhara, a Vespa-riding, bass guitar-wielding, pink-haired psychopath whose first encounter with Naota leaves him with tire tracks on his back and a giant horn on his head. Though all he wants is some peace and quiet, when Haruko takes up residence at his parents' home, Naota finds himself dragged into the heart of the greatest battle for supremacy that Earth—and quite possibly the entire universe—has ever seen.

This is one of my favorite anime works of all time. I love everything about it - from the wounderful heart-melting indie rock soundtrack courtesy of The Pillows, to the overarching themes of becoming an adult and experiencing the world around you, to the amazing animation that oozes talent and creativity. It is a perfect work of art. I reckon that those for whom the presented themes are not relevant may not be into it as much, but you should take it for a spin regardless. It's a short and bittersweet experience for the ages. Watch it.
