I’m a journalist, writer, photographer, video producer, social media manager and above all a storyteller. I’m located on the east coast of the United States but travel the world with the love of my life. I’ve been a nerd since birth with a love of history and science. I fell in love with anime, watching ROBOTECH and Venus Wars in the 80s when our only source was secondhand VHS dubs. A crazy new thing called the internet changed that, giving me access to new and amazing anime every day. I love to write for work and pleasure. I’m living the dream of every kid, getting paid to watch anime and loving every subtitled line.

21 Best Alien Anime Series & Movies (Ranked)

Anime featuring aliens are a wacky bunch. And no, not the inaccuracies of our human-centric bias in their character designs.

Oddly enough, these anime seem to have embedded themselves into every nook and cranny of the otaku culture. Even sometimes perfectly slipping away from the science fiction genre it’s supposed to be founded on.

And so for this list, let’s dive into some pretty cool anime series with ETs and aliens.

As always, a couple of rules before we begin:

  • Science fiction doesn’t need to be the focus genre
  • Doesn’t need to take place in space
  • Story complexity will not be as important of a criterion for this list
  • Alien characters do not need to be identified, just their existence confirmed
  • The aliens still need to be important enough to the story though
  • Humans branching into different lifeforms don’t count
  • Evolved humans from far, far, distant futures also a no-no

And now, recommendations!

 

21. Rinne no Lagrange 2nd Season (2011)

An alien anime with somewhat weird mixed genres here, it manages to keep itself engaging and entertaining by focusing on its characters and interactions.

Particularly alien-to-human interactions, which is probably the only reason why this anime is included in this list.

The second season’s greatest strength is simply putting more emphasis on what made the first season interesting: purpose-driven conflicts.

The overall plot can still get a little bit too underdeveloped though, for such an interesting premise, so do be mindful of your expectations.

 

20. Haiyore! Nyaruko-san (2010)

Haiyore! Nyaruko-san screenshot

Another one tailing on the far end of our list is a comedic series that happens to be focused on extra-terrestrial entities… with very questionable obsessions.

It’s not even the best comedy anime out there, mind you.

But the formula that Nyaruko creates provides good entertainment at the sheer ridiculousness and stupidity of each of the episode’s plot developments.

It’s essentially the light-hearted anime of otherworldly pursuits.

 

19. Ano Natsu de Matteru (2012)

Ano Natsu de Matteru Alien Anime

The spiritual (and literal?!) successor to Onegai Sense, this series opens up as your standard slice-of-life genre that’s pre-set with typical teenage drama and youthful romances.

The odd mix of science fiction elements doesn’t really manage to change the down-to-earth tone of the series, but instead it’s used for simple world-building foundations.

Most of the time at least.

Individual decisions of these characters can be a bit mind boggling at times. But you might simply write it off as the “misadventures of the inexperienced youth.”

 

18. Iriya no Sora, UFO no Natsu OVA (2005)

Anime boy and girl in Iriya no Sora

A very odd anime that delves on the stereotype of a dense protagonist, forced into a situation where he needs to take care of a strange and mysterious girl.

The aliens are not exactly shown in the series, just mentioned or reported.

But their existence serves as an important plot device for the series.

As the story is quite short, viewers might be left with some questions unanswered.

But it’s still quite an intriguing short series to check out, even just episode 1.

 

17. Kidou Senkan Nadeshiko (1996)

Funny boy and girl Anime characters

Does the combined genre of comedy and space war sound odd?

If not, then this classic might be your cup of tea.

For the most part, the setting here, the locations, and technologies are built as a serious storytelling foundations.

But the character profiles are where the fun begins.

From the questionable credentials of Nadeshico’s crew, to the inane antics inside the ship, there’s always something for watchers to poke fun at.

 

16. Knights of Sidonia (2015)

Knights of Sidonia Anime

Before you write this off as yet another “humans versus unintelligible aliens” sci-fi anime, think about the core of the setting first.

We already lost. Our heroes are thrown into a far future setting, in a timeline where the audience already knows was dominated by the main antagonists.

The details you fill in within its timeline, while writing a logical drama that depicts how life on some long-term generation ship might be, makes watching this series very worthwhile.

And I’m not even talking about the more gruesome(?) details yet.

 

15. Captain Herlock: Outside Legend – The Endless Odyssey (2002)

Captain Herlock screenshot

Out of all the Captain Herlock media out there, this is probably my personal pick as the “alien” anime recommendation.

Endless Odyssey properly returns the franchise to its proper form, being an official sequel that is set directly after the 1978 adaptation.

Harlock is as spanky as ever as the space western hero, amplified further by the “dire” setting at the beginning of the series.

As for the aliens in this show, to quote a certain Super alien: “alien is relative, it’s a big universe out there”.

 

14. Hoshi no Koe (2002)

Slain alien by Anime girl

A rather simple story abruptly cut short by the very limited run time.

Don’t let this deter you from enjoying this one though.

Aliens, for the most part function similarly as with Iriya no Sora, UFO no Natsu. The conflict in this one seems a bit less concerning, given that both of them had access to the solution when given the chance.

But the long-distance interactions are something that holds this 25-minute special quite well, and makes the story somewhat realistic in the face of its super fantastic setting.

 

13. Outlaw Star (1998)

Bounty hunters in Outlaw Star Anime

Space western/bounty hunting isn’t the most unique of premises, as some very popular classics prove.

But it’s quite a balanced template for adventures nonetheless.

For Outlaw Star, there’s a specific addition of interacting with alien races, which makes the variety of characters quite wackier.

This is especially notable since it’s actually high fantasy, not sci-fi, that inspires most of their designs.

As for how interesting its badass protagonist really is, well you might want to ask the eponymous ship’s propulsion system instead.

 

12. Space Dandy (2014)

Man running in Space Dandy

If there’s anything that Space Dandy definitively proved, it’s that the randomness of space may perhaps be the most efficient comedic tool for writing.

Couple that with a despicable but somehow delightful protagonist, wacky western adventure tropes, and modern cultural references, and you have an alien anime recipe set to entertain from start to finish.

Or make you cringe hard at every joke.

Regardless of how you accept its style, Space Dandy will leave an impression that you definitely won’t forget.

 

11. Urusei Yatsura (1981)

Urusei Yatsura Alien Anime

Probably one of the very first alien anime series to not focus on its science fiction elements, Urusei Yatsura became the base template for many different romantic comedy series going forward.

Don’t get me wrong, the romantic themes are still strong for this series.

But its comedic formula is such a masterpiece that you can still get a chuckle or two no matter how old you are.

There’s just something about the timing and tempo of its story that makes it so entertaining, regardless of era.

 

10. Onegai Sensei (2002)

Blonde boy and red-haired girl anime characters

The classic alien romance anime that launched a thousand series with vaguely similar concepts.

Onegai Sensei differs itself from the much more classic Urusei Yatsura with a notably heavier focus on romance.

Just like its spiritual successor later on, most of the science fiction elements are simply kept as world-building foundations, to facilitate the development of the two main characters.

Anyone interested in watching the series will be in for a rollercoaster ride of feels, as well as gripped with perhaps one of the most cheat-level romance tropes frequently used to test relationships.

 

9. To Love Ru series (2008)

To Love Ru series Alien Anime screenshot

Did I have to remind anyone that this series actually features aliens?

I mean I get it, Even Rito’s potential harem members themselves are more or less accustomed to Earth already.

In fact, science fiction is probably straight-up not part of its classifying genre. So if you happen to only have tingles for romantic comedy ecchi, then you already have several volumes worth of entertainment to indulge.

Assuming you haven’t read them all yet, of course.

 

8. Dragon Ball Z (1989)

Son Goku flying with Gohan

Ah, one of the greatest shounen classics.

Today the magic of its novelty may have worn off, yet it still catches the awe of audiences worldwide.

The first Dragon Ball may have already established Son Goku as an alien.

But it was only after Dragon Ball Z that the whole subject became a lot more relevant, with an entire cast of alien characters coming onto the scene.

I mean, it’s not solely beings from other planets now, but from entirely different universes as well.

 

7. Tenchi Muyou! (1995)

Tenchi Muyou! Anime screenshot

What I’m ranking here is technically the first TV series(and probably the most memorable one) despite the development of later seasons.

Oddly, for such a title of being one of the first modern harem series, it has a rather complex story.

The alien sci-fi elements are implanted firmly into the narrative, and not just some world-building tool. Eventually, the same sci-fi plus harem formula will be the basis of yet another memorable series airing exactly a year later.

 

6. Eureka Seven (2005)

Eureka Seven Alien screenshot

The plot twist of Terrans becoming the alien to their own home planet is not too common.

One of the better series to have done this is Eureka Seven.

The series boasts a balanced mix of innocent and adult romance, mecha, and fantasy elements, as well as the philosophical conflict of harmony.

It definitely isn’t perfect of course. A few eyebrow-raising moments here and there.

But it’s a classic worth checking out for if you’re an alien anime aficionado. Oh, and how about its sequel?

Eh, what sequel?

 

5. Macross Plus (1994)

Alien and human in Macross Plus Anime

Building up further into the story that was setup by the original TV series, Macross Plus is still technically set within the same timeline.

As such, we can consider the alien elements as present, or at least as the indirect driving forces of these future events.

As suggested, the movie itself does not actually revolve around the Zentradi anymore. They are simply loosely used as connecting identities for the main cast.

Definitely a step up from the original TV show, but you need to watch it first before you can watch this well-done sequel.

 

4. Keroro Gunsou (2004)

Keroro with friends

Here we have one of the most all-around entertaining series to have shaped the anime and manga realm at the dawn of the 21st century.

Keroro Gunsou is undoubtedly the alien series that has all the stereotypical bells and whistles of an “alien arriving to Earth” series… at the very beginning at least.

But hey, at least Giroro desperately clung to the idea for good long while.

Those who are into aliens in anime that also have a knack for liking mundane-that-gets-wacky type of comedy, would definitely feel at home with this series.

 

3. Parasyte (2014)

Parasyte Alien Anime screenshot

At a glance, it’s probably obvious that Parastye will be a series that is all about aliens. After all, this is essentially “The Thing” in manga and anime format.

The conflicts that arise from individual story arcs in this series even delve with the idea of an unseen, hidden intruder.

But the underlying discussion of life, death, and the difference between interacting with what you know and what you don’t, is also what makes Parasyte so entertaining to watch.

That, and also watching humans get eviscerated in the most gruesome way possible.

 

2. Gantz (2004)

Gantz Alien screenshot

Speaking of evisceration, when you say science fiction manga/anime series, perhaps the one thing that we otaku always have in mind is Gantz.

Saying that this is an alien series is a huge understatement. It is the core essence of its existence.

From the enemies that they fight, characters that interact, major story arcs, as well as the technologies featured in the series. They all scream extra-terrestrial.

The only sad part is that the anime offers a tiny, tiny sliver of what the original manga can show you.

 

1. Gintama (2006)

Gintoki Sataka fighting aliens Gintama

What’s better than the epic battles of Gantz and the philosophical nightmare of Parasyte?

Why, the sheer variety-based comedy of Gintama of course!

Unforgettable comic gags? Check.

Epic shounen fights? Check.

Hilarious character interactions? Check.

Fourth wall breaks? Triple check.

The aliens are not just for show, either. As their identities frequently becomes important plot points for some of the series’ most crucial arcs.

Gintama is hands down the best alien anime to have ever existed, without being even remotely science fiction from an entertainment standpoint.

Makoto Niwa meticulously tallies the amount of positive and negative youthful experiences he engages in as if to grade his own life. When his parents go overseas, he moves to a new town to live with his aunt, welcoming the change and ready for a fresh start. However, as ordinary as he had imagined his adolescence to be, he could never have taken the existence of an enigmatic long-lost cousin into account.

Upon moving into his aunt's house, he discovers the cousin he never knew about: Erio Touwa. Despite being Makoto's age, she couldn't be more different: Erio chooses to wrap herself in a futon all day rather than to go to school. She even claims to be an alien, and with a speech pattern and personality to back it up, any chance of Makoto's dreamt-of normal life is instantly tossed out the window.

As he meets a string of other eccentric girls in town, Makoto must face the possibility of seeing his youth points in the red. However, he might be surprised by how thrilling an abnormal youth can be.

I don’t make it a point to write reviews, but I particularly enjoyed Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko, and, upon seeing its subpar ratings, felt somewhat obligated to defend it, so, here goes:

Art:

Wonderful, wonderful artwork. I’m a stickler for art, having dropped numerous series simply because I couldn’t stand the way they were drawn, and Denpa Onna definitely wins in this category. Shaft has outdone itself – colorful, lively scenery, vibrant, multi-toned characters, and, in general, great color schemes, compositions, and dynamism in each frame. It’s not quite 5 cm/s, but I daresay it’s approaching that level.

Soundtrack:

I usually neglect this category, as I find it to be a relatively minor component to my viewing experience. However, Denpa Onna does provide some melancholic piano keys and nice ambience music that complement the pacing well. Can’t say I’m a fan of the OP or ED, but, then again, I was never into the high-pitched squeals that permeate much of anime JPop.

Characters:

As many reviewers iterated before me, eccentricities abound in this motley crew of a cast. Honestly, it’s refreshing to see a show invent new personalities instead of rehashing the standard anime prototypes. (I especially enjoyed how Erio Touwa [E.T.] sat in Makoto’s bicycle basket as he pedaled her into the sky). Development is admittedly slow, but it’s definitely there. This is something I feel many reviewers don’t emphasize enough. Denpa Onna is a show about the gentle adolescence of our halcyon days, and, to that end, I think it’s nice that events and developments aren’t explosive or convoluted. The subtleties and gradual changes are meant to mirror the normalcy of our teenage years and, thus, offer a stark but welcome contrast to the eccentric personalities – that is, while the characters are themselves bizarre, their growth is relatable and meaningful.

Story:

Denpa Onna opened with an explosive start. Bracketing the rest of the show, I think the first 3 episodes could operate as a short, standalone OVA series. Really, I was hooked after watching a prologue so rife with meaning and mystery. Erio’s personality is fully emphasized here, and here, too, is where the show probes most philosophically at the deeper themes of life. Makoto’s rejection of Erio’s delusions is a deeper rejection of ontological relativism as a legitimate means to happiness – his actions nuance his convictions well, and we really get a sense of Makoto’s take on what it means to be human.

Sadly, I feel many casual viewers gloss over this last point and take Denpa Onna to be yet another mindless harem. Let me emphasize that it is not. Its insight is subtle, but present, and acutely profound.

So, what about the rest of the show, you ask? Well I can say that the first three episodes are somewhat anomalous when compared to the slow pace and slice-of-life themed events of the last 9 episodes. Critics charge that Denpa Onna lacks plot or hooks to keep viewers interested, and I’m not unsympathetic to this criticism. However, as mentioned above, I think the slow pacing works well with what this show takes itself to be: a chronicle of a boy’s adolescence. I find it far more realistic that schoolgirl crushes don’t blow up into soap operas and baseball games don’t become matters of life and death. Don’t get me wrong; it’s not like the series never scratches below the surface – it really does, but, often, it does so almost imperceptibly. Take episode 8 (Tsiolkovsky’s Prayer), for example. It centers around Meme’s daily routine over a week, but the conclusion of the episode is nothing short of powerful, poignant, and profound, letting us really glimpse the depth beneath her skin. People are unique, change slowly, and offer interesting and poignant stories. This, I think Denpa Onna emphasizes very profoundly.

Moreover, among these events of every day life are the rare gemstones that move boys closer to manhood, and Denpa Onna doesn’t forget this. Conversations with characters often revolve around mundane occurrences like deep sea fish or basketball games, but are artfully and subtly infused with lessons on the importance of curiosity or the rate of human progress. It’s important, when watching, to pay attention to these moments – as they offer enlightening insight into the human experience.

So, what’s the final verdict on Denpa Onna?

If you’re looking for something explosive, convoluted, and plot-driven, then I advise you to turn away. If, however, you’re looking for something light-hearted yet penetrating, then I urge you to pick this up. By the end of it, Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko, with its subtle but philosophical messages, really offers you a novel and reflective outlook on that awkward phase between puberty and responsibility. And, after all, that’s how life is: subtle but profound.

This review exists within the internet, authored by a SHAFT fanboi.
It functions only as a test ground for me. It is also a spoiler zone in this page.

Under the current assessment of the series, it is a "9/10".
This was determined by my reaction to audio-visual investigation of the SHAFT seishun anime.
Patience is the closest thing viewers have to salvation.
However, accelerated exposure could amplify the viewing experience of a class-2 audience.

A collective of readers that has forgotten it is a collective of voters... That is you.
Members of the self-unaware, clueless MAL users under aliases are not permitted to vote "Not Helpful" on this review.
Injection of corrective program to opinionated haters with inflated pessimism and distaste!

I would write the entire review in Denpanese, but I used up my esper mana for speaking an alien language.

The word "denpa" (lit. "electromagnetic waves") is used to refer to people with overly-active imaginations who appear to live in their own world. In other words, delusional psychopaths.
The word "seishun" (lit. "blue spring") means "adolescent" or "puberty". However, the term often implies the joys and challenges of overcoming immaturity, and youthful romance, as per usage in "seishun points".

'Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko'(loosely translated to "Psychopathic Girl and Adolescent Boy") begins with the the protagonist Niwa Makoto moving into a new city, known as the "the City Watched Over by Aliens". He's in his aunt Meme's care, whose daughter Erio is a denpa hikikomori wrapped in futon.

The story begins with Makoto getting to know Erio. She's got a serious case of denpa, believing herself to be an alien who came to Earth to investigate the mankind. Being a nice guy that he is, Makoto takes her out to prove she's a human being and can't fly like E.T. After that, the focus is transferred to the remaining cast, Mifune "Ryuushi-san" Ryuuko, Maekawa-san, and Hoshimiya Yashiro.
Many viewers must have felt betrayed when Erio turned from a jargon-spitting enigmatic girl in a futon to an ordinary shy girl, but ironically, Makoto and Erio are surrounded by denpa and therefore has plenty of material for comedy and accumulation of Seishun Points.

Niwa Makoto is your average protagonist in a harem setup. He even describes his own situation as a typical protagonist in school drama in the first episode. However, he does have his own unique Seishun Point system to keep track of the quality of his school life, and does actively pursue opportunities to accumulate points. He is one of the more likable protagonist around in that he has a skeptic, realistic personality, but man up when it really counts. He has a pretty good sense of humor, and we as viewers follow his narration as a guide, seeing things through his perspective almost the entire time.

Touwa Erio started out as a hopeless loner whose own mother had given up on her for becoming denpa after a traumatizing event in her childhood. She does eventually get "fixed" by Makoto, and makes a slow return into the society. Her character provided early selling point for the series, and we see her gradual change after Makoto showed up. This season ended at volume 3 of the novel series, out of 8 volumes in total. Her change in character was limited to finding a part-time job and participating group events, but there is surely more to come if a sequel is ever made.

Touwa Meme is a 40-year old aunt of Makoto, who acts like a child all the time and sputters nonsense all the time. Her role in this series is mainly MILF moe and acting as a puppet-master who influences the other main characters to get the story going. She's quite mysterious, and it's hard to know what she's thinking, but as audiences, we know she's hiding something about Elliott, who may or may not be an alien.

Ryuushi-san is probably the most interesting character in this series. She is a moeblob, but has an unique and consistent quirkiness that worked really well with Makoto. Their chemistry is excellent, and she's just one of those adorably cute hard working character that you can't help but cheer for. She is the de facto Heroine in this season, spending most time with Makoto and the only one to actively try to win him over like a character in a true seishun series. Yashiro's line in ep11 makes me wonder if they would eventually become an item. The way she blushes around Makoto was really cute, and I'll certainly be cheering for her.

Maekawa-san's personality is almost the opposite of Ryuushi-san. She's always composed and has a dark sense of humor, also seems to have analyzed every situtation and knows what's going on. However, she also seems to have a screw loose on her head, with all the strange cosplays shown in every episode. Her role in the show is mainly to tease Makoto and Ryuushi-san, but getting them together conflicts with her apparent feelings for Makoto. There could be some major character development for her if the sequel is ever made. And of course, her costumes are also there for moe to niche viewers.

Hoshimiya Yashiro made a very late appearance this season, but left a huge impact into the story. She claims to be an alien esper, which no one believes, but she has shown evidence of her super powers throughout the final few episodes. Interestingly, she says Makoto and Ryuushi both have "the potential", which was precisely what Erio said to Makoto early in the show when she was still a major denpa. Yashiro also brings a new theme to the show, that one should not limit their potential, and develop the strength to believe. This message is extremely similar to 'Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin', but it is executed far better here, with many great inspirational scenes.

Every major characters have their roles in the show, and the character headcount is very low to ensure every character gets their own spotlight. There were some pacing problems in the middle as one non-linear episode mixed in and extremely slow story development, but there are incredibly inspiring and touching moments of youth in every episode as a treat. There are also plenty of references to other manga and anime, sometimes even real life events to keep us entertained.

Art and animation is this series is generally very good. The character designs are attractive, with great cuts and camera angles (although it's almost completely devoid of the signature SHAFT animation style). There are few scenes where characters seemed deformed for budget saving purposes, possibly using Korean animators, but every single inspiring scene (and fan service scene) that actually matters is drawn to perfection. SHAFT knows how to inspire and how to best use visual support to tell a story, and it shows once again in this series.

Voice acting, with exception of Erio, is spectacular. Ryuushi-san's voice acting is what I would call 「ハマリ役」, epic casting. Her voice is so unique, yet fits the character perfectly. All the seiyuu staff in this series are extremely motivated, and their lines are filled with emotion, especially in the most critical lines.
BGM is also incredibly touching and flows extremely well. It kind of just plays in the background, but becomes really noticeable in critical scenes to improve the viewing experience... it's in total harmony with the story.
OP is a "denpa song" in a whole different way. The term is usually used to describe songs with incomprehensible lyrics. In this case, the lyrics do make sense, but BGM composition and the vocal sound absolutely retarded. This works extremely well for a series about denpa, and it's somehow addicting. Absolutely brilliant.
ED is rather dull, but cute song with fun lyrics and unique whisper vocals.


'Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko' has many classic, almost cliché seishun elements, such as screaming out corny lines in public, running towards the sun (its variation biking towards the moon was used), awkward silences between the opposite sex, working hard on sports... However, it's the execution that makes all the difference, and it really shows in this series. The main message of keeping our minds open and appreciate every moment of our lives, it really reached my heart.

This series has also given me a new level of appreciation for NisiOisiN's works. Although the series does attempt to use witty dialogs to advance the story and succeeded to some degree, it lacks the pacing and sophistication seen in similar NisiOisiN adaptations by SHAFT, 'Bakemonogatari' and 'Katanagatari'. If I had to pick, this is closest to 'Soredemo Machi wa Mawatte Iru' for being a rare authentic 'slice-of-life' anime, and also the extreme quirkiness that's hit-or-miss for its viewers. It was a definite hit for me, and I'll definitely look forward to the sequel.

'Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko' is a story full of dreams and depicts an ordinary guy in a crazy city, trying living his life to the fullest. It's brilliant, and exactly what a true seishun series is all about. If you disagree, I guess I'll just say it out loud in a clear and concise phrase...

"If you say so."

Let's say you have a drinking problem. Instead of admitting that you have a problem, you blame your drinking because your wife nags at you, or because the devil told you to do it, or some other excuse I could not think of because I do not have drinking problem. (No, I'm not in denial here, I seriously don't have a drinking problem)

Reality distortion

Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko deals with characters who distorts reality to their own convenience to escape facing the inconceivable truth. As normal human beings, we usually believe our perception of the worlds within and around us is "true."

The story revolves around Niwa Makoto (who is playing as the youthful man) and his cousin, Touwa Erio (who is playing as the electromagnetic wave woman) living with his aunt Touwa Meme (horny old woman with a 20 year old body. Yes in Japan it is possible without cosmetic surgery) in a small city famous for alien encounters.
Now if you all know me (which I doubt you do) you probably think I picked up this title because it has youthful scent all over it which means a harem is soon to follow.

YES. I wont deny that. Other reasons would be due to Erio hot legs. (No I do not have a leg fetish)

So we follow the journey of Makoto collecting youthful points for god knows what reason (as if you can measure youth) and along the way he meets (as expected) more girls to add to his circle of harem... I mean circle of friends.

Art wise, it's very obvious that you can tell that this is one of SHAFT's handiwork. The dramatic zoom into background objects, character faces, (especially the eyes) I've read a couple of chapters from the light novel and it is clear that the portrayal of the story using the artwork is nicely executed.
The voice cast chosen are befitting for their characters.

Now I can't go into detail about all the characters as I want to avoid spoilers as much as possible. But I would like to stress something on Niwa Makoto.
[REASONS WHY MAKOTO SHOULD HAVE A HAREM]
1) He is a nice guy (Main characteristic a harem male lead)
2) He is a transfer student (Research shows that 4/5 of anime transfer students gets a harem)
3) He doesn't live with his parents (He is independent which means less cockblock)
4) He is not ugly (Have you ever seen an Ugly harem male lead?)
5 His name is Makoto (Reference To the Makoto from SchoolDays. I just hope his balls is still intact when everything is over)

Basically, Makoto here is a personification of everything that is adolescent in anime terms.

His cousin on the other hand (Touwa Erio) plays the fumbling yet lovable character (well I find her lovable because I love girls with blue hair. No I do not have a blue hair fetish) She plays the electromagnetic wave woman in this series (electromagnetic wave woman here means weird, crazy or someone who has an obsessive behavior on an perception) She provides the story for the first arc in the series, Makoto helping her cope from her transition from an 'extraterrestrial being' back to a 'normal' human being.
She is also the main example of a person who is clearly distorting her own reality.
But she may not be in denial? Perhaps it was misinformation?
For example have you ever experience sleep paralysis? People who don't know the term sleep paralysis may think that when this occurred to them, aliens are actually probing them. This is just the way it is when you do not have information on your current circumstance.

Do I find this amusing in any way?
- I find adolescence amusing
-I find eccentric characters amusing
-I find futon wrapped Erio amusing
-I find getting a million youth points for seeing a girl naked wrapped with a bath towel amusing

What I do not find amusing?
- I find incest not amusing
-I find cradle robbers not amusing
-I find cattle mutilation not amusing
-I find no harem in a supposedly capable harem producing anime not amusing

Overall if you're a fan of SHAFT like works (and no I'm not referring to Madoka, damn Madoka fanboys...) then I see no reason why you should not watch this.
I have learn from this anime that sometimes blaming aliens is all what it takes to escape reality. (For those of you who had sleep paralysis, blaming alien is very common)
Examples:
"The crime rate had risen over the past few years"
-I blame Aliens
"Baby dumping has increased from a decade ago"
-I blame Aliens
"Our job opportunity has been falling recently"
-I blame Aliens
Case in point.

Oh by the way, "Aliens" here DO NOT mean Mexicans. Racist pricks.

A really casual one, it was a totally random choice, but I don't regret it though. So what's it about? It may not have an incredible climax and everything... Instead, this anime focuses more upon reflection. It's simple: just take a teenager who wants to enjoy his high school years to the max and add an odd girl to whom he begins devoting his time, in order to get her back to real life.

Makoto's first time in a big city made him create big expectations about how his life would be from now on. He wanted to meet girls, spend time with them and even maybe fall in love, afterall, that's what being an young boy is all about. Meeting Erio was the first step from this new journey. Having met his "energetic" aunt, Meme, and after her, Maekawa and Ryuko, most episodes are dedicated into showing his relationship growing with all of them.

Still, that's not all... Believing he would be able to change Erio's attitude and put an end to her self-isolation from society, Makoto becomes her only true friend... Making her forget all this "alien stuff" and the past she couldn't remember, trying to get her to be more sociable and stop hiding from everyone... This also affects Makoto, as he gets more self-confident.

Art impressed me... Glowing style, slow-mo scenes and fluid animation, despite not having much action, overally amazing! I think OP theme could've been better and the ED song is so sweet and calm... Characters have nothing really special in particular. Most of them are ordinary people with different personalities. Both Ryuko's and Erio's shyness attracted me... Besides that, they're so cute and lovely! Also, voices chosen for both of them match perfectly!

Never give up and believing in yourself, just two of the many lessons we can learn from this anime... Nobody comes to this world for no reason and, since we don't understand the real purpose of life, all we can do is live, make it worthy... Taking the best we can from our youth years and making every moment count, Denpa Onna was really made to change the way some people think about their own lives, to encourage those on enjoying it the best they can... That's so deep...

Lum Invader, known in Japan simply as Lum (Japanese: ラム, Hepburn: Ramu),[1] is a fictional character and the female protagonist of Rumiko Takahashi's manga series Urusei Yatsura.[2][3][4] She is often believed to be the main protagonist of the series due to her iconic status. However, Takahashi has stated that Ataru Moroboshi is the main character.[4]

She is named Lamu in Animax's English-language dub of the series, and in the Italian and French anime dubs as well; however she is still called "Lum" (pronounced with a long "u" per Spanish linguistic customs) in the Spanish anime dub. Her name is thought to come from popular 1970s swimsuit model Agnes Lum, as well as Rumiko Takahashi's nickname of "Rum" or "Lum" (from the interchangeable sound of the Rs and Ls in Japanese).[5]

Lum is considered a magical girlfriend, though significantly different from others such as Belldandy of Oh! My Goddess and Ai of Video Girl Ai. While the latter two are openly considered "ideal" women by the protagonists of their respective series, Ataru often indicates publicly that Lum is the opposite of ideal.[2]

Creation and conception[edit]

Lum was created by Rumiko Takahashi for a short story she was working on before her professional debut. She worked meticulously on designing her hairstyle and body shape. However, the outspoken and uninhibited Lum is the author's polar opposite. This proved to Takahashi that she could draw characters who do not reflect herself at all.[6]

Appearances[edit]

In Urusei Yatsura[edit]

Lum is royalty and the daughter of the Onialien Invader and is capable of flying and generating massive electrical discharges.[2][4][7] She generally wears a tiger-striped bikini and Go-Go Boots which highlight her shapely figure,[2][3][7] and has two tiny horns on her head[3] that, when sprayed with a special solution, can be shaped to resemble barrettes. When these horns are removed (or when specially blessed yellow ribbons are tied around them), her electric and flying abilities disappear and she becomes a regular girl. Her hair color was originally iridescent and ever-changing in the manga; due to difficulties in making such an effect possible at the time the anime was originally produced, Lum's hair was given the shade of green it is best known for. Lum's appearance and clothing (and that of her family) draw heavily on the Japanese god of thunder, Raijin.

She grew up on her homeworld Oniboshi a precocious girl and attended primary school with Benten of the Oni's rivals, the Lucky Gods, Oyuki, the ice princess, and Ran. There the four of them developed a reputation for causing massive amounts of trouble. Ran often got roped into their mischief and then took all the blame, while Lum got off unharmed, which later lead Ran to seek revenge. In junior high school, Lum, Benten, and Oyuki's reputation grew into them becoming a school gang. Lum later got engaged to a handsome Oni named Rei, but rejected him because of his dullness. When she was seventeen, the Oni attempted to invade the planet Earth, an event that would change her life forever.

That day, Lum met Ataru Moroboshi for the first time. He had been randomly selected by computer to face her in a game of tag with the fate of the earth on the line.[3][8] Ataru had been promised marriage by his then-girlfriend Shinobu if he could win, which spurred him to success, but upon catching Lum he declared "Now I can get married!" Lum misinterpreted this as a proposal to herself and accepted it.[2][8] Because engagements are sacred on her planet, she is determined to be married to Ataru for the rest of her life. Since then, she has forced her way into his life as his "loving wife," much to his chagrin because it compromised his ability to flirt. The relationship between Lum and Ataru has been called "a humorously exaggerated parody of a common Japanese husband and wife dynamic."[2]

In other media[edit]

In the manga series Detective Conan, Lum makes a cameo appearance when Conan Edogawa asks Ai Haibara about her knowing about a Black Organization member named "Rum", and Haibara's first reaction is to think of Lum, due to the use of the syllable "ra" for the Japanese spelling of both names.[9] Additionally, the character Rumi Wakasa, who is a "Rum" suspect, shares the same voice actor as Lum in the Detective Conan anime adaptation.

Characterization[edit]

Personality[edit]

Because of her exotic beauty, Lum has become extremely popular with the boys at Tomobiki High School. Despite this, she refutes all of their advances since she is devoted to Ataru.[2][3] Most of the time, she is very laid back, enjoying the quirks and perks of life on Earth. But she is quick to anger and responds with powerful electric discharges to anyone who enrages her, usually Ataru or any person who attacks or insults her "Darling". Once the threat passes, Lum reverts to her usual cheery attitude.[10]

Lum is very intelligent, but very naive about life on earth, with a worldview comparable to that of a kindergartener.[10] She does not understand why the other boys at school feel that the philandering Ataru is not good enough for her, but she cares about their well-being. She has successfully adapted herself to life on Earth thanks to her technology.[3] She still struggles to keep her younger cousin Ten from wreaking havoc thanks to his own naiveté about human behavior. For the most part, however, people who look at her for the first time view her as a highly attractive schoolgirl, despite her obviously different appearance. She has the qualities of the ideal wife and daughter-in-law in Japanese society as she takes good care of her darling and she helps her "mother-in-law" with the housework whenever she is free.

Lum is well-versed in the use of technology, and carries a variety of advanced gadgets from her society with her, with the stranger gadgets hidden in her bikini top.[3][10] But while her intentions in operating them are often noble, such as copying a notebook to help Ataru study for an exam, the results are rarely what Lum intends. This may be in part because she is naive regarding the customs of Earth, so she often misunderstands what people say. The best example of this is her innocent misinterpretation of Ataru's victory yell after he defeated her in tag. She believed it to be an instant marriage, rather than a proposal, or even just the celebratory shout it really was.

She drinks Tabasco sauce as if it were water and the food she cooks is violently spicy.[10] It does not stop her from trying to prepare edible victuals, and she enjoys preparing food for Ataru, who angers her by refusing to consume it for fear of burning his tongue. Eating umeboshi causes her to get drunk and she dislikes garlic. Despite efforts from everybody she knows to convince her otherwise, her love for Ataru remains unchanged because he has consistently proven that he genuinely cares for her well-being in spite of his idiotic facade. These events have convinced Lum that Ataru is indeed the right man for her. However, while Ataru deeply cares for her, most of their friction stems from their clashing personalities: while Lum is naive and fundamentally innocent, she strives to act as the ideal, mature wife and daughter-in-law for Ataru and his family. On the other hand, Ataru is more savvy and well-versed in Earth customs, but he insists to act as a carefree teen, making Lum doubt his commitment.

Relationship with Ataru[edit]

Lum has fallen completely in love with Ataru,[2][3] and refers to him only - in English - as "Darling" (ダーリン). (In the Spanish anime, her name for Ataru is "Tesoro" (literally "Treasure") and in the Spanish manga, she calls him "Querido" ("Beloved") while both in the Italian anime and manga she calls him "Tesoruccio" (literally "Little Treasure", the diminutive being a coquettish sign of affection, thus being more akin to "Beloved Treasure" or "Dear Treasure". However, in BBC's Lum the Invader Girl English dub, she refers to Ataru by his given name as well as calling him "Darling."). Since she considers him to be her husband, she violently electrocutes him whenever he looks at or flirts with another girl (or if he insults her or does something to make her unhappy), but always forgives him in the end (she electrocutes him less frequently as the series progresses).[2] Though Lum knows that Ataru cares deeply for her on the inside, she wishes that he would show it more often than he does.[2] Many of the gadgets she keeps in her UFO and her bikini top are designed to meet this end by making him more faithful to her.[10]

In the beginning of the series, she constantly hugs and kisses Ataru whether he wants it or not, often infuriating Shinobu (who still initially had feelings for Ataru, though she eventually gave up on him) and the rest of the class. But by the end, Lum has calmed down considerably and simply holds onto his arm whenever they are walking somewhere. She is usually together with Ataru and does almost everything with him, be it eating lunch, going to and from school, or going to a festival. She even enrolled herself in Tomobiki High to spend more time with him, which initially caused her Darling to faint from the shock.[10] Because of this, Lum has come to consider and treat his room as her home, though Ataru insists she sleep in the closet. Takahashi's reason for this is that she believes two high school students shouldn't be sleeping together.[4] Lum did try to get Ataru to sleep with her in early manga chapters and anime episodes (and also spread a rumor that she and Ataru were sleeping together and that she was pregnant with his child, which was designed to make Shinobu angry at Ataru), but Ataru flatly refused. In one episode, she does share Ataru's bed, but only after fitting him in a bulky insulated suit to protect him from accidental electric shocks in her sleep.

Lum is considered the embodiment of the struggle facing modern Japanese women: how to be independent and still fulfill the traditional role of loving wife and mother.[2] While she is very independent minded, she continues to be supportive and loving of Ataru no matter what happens throughout the entire series.[2] Lum's relationship with Shinobu was initially very stormy, as Lum considered Shinobu to be Ataru's "mistress" and went to extraordinary lengths to disrupt the relationship between Ataru and Shinobu (including using her UFOs to jam Ataru and Shinobu's telephone calls and claiming that she was pregnant with Ataru's child). Eventually Shinobu realizes that Ataru really does love Lum and gives up on Ataru (eventually finding love with Inaba), and her and Lum's mutual hatred cools down into a somewhat terse friendship, though the two never do become close. Although Lum sees Mendou and Megane and his gang (Lum's Stormtroopers) as good friends and values their company, she does not return the affection they have for her, and makes it clear that she loves only her "Darling."

Speech[edit]

Lum refers to herself in the first person as "uchi" (うち), which is a trait of the western Japanese dialects including the Kansai dialect, and is famous for usually ending her sentences with "~daccha" (~だっちゃ) or simply "~ccha" (~っちゃ), which is a trait of the Sendai dialect. When used by itself, "daccha" means "Yes". This speech type is a rather saccharine, "cute" type of speech. A similar speech pattern appears in Takahashi's debut work Katte na Yatsura (勝手なやつら), where the dappyamen (だっぴゃ星人, dappya seijin) add "dappya" (だっぴゃ) at the end of all of their sentences.

AnimEigo's English dub of the first two episodes of the TV series, Those Obnoxious Aliens, attempted to approximate Lum's "daccha" speech pattern with "icha," which in English means nothing. None of the other American- or British-made dubs of Urusei Yatsura TV episodes or movies have tried a similar English approximation of "daccha."

Reception[edit]

Lum is a well-known and popular character in Japan,[3] and has been described as "the original Otaku dream girl".[11] On 4 April 1982, Lum and other characters from Urusei Yatsura appeared in two public service announcements for the Kansai Electric Power Company regarding being careful with kites and koinobori around electrical lines.[12][13]Hirano Fumi, the voice actress of Lum, did the main voiceovers for the commercials.

Merchandise featuring Lum continues to be popular, and her image appears on a wide variety of printed, commercial, and electronic media.[3][14][15][16] Over four decades after the character's introduction in 1978, pachinko machines featuring Lum are still being made.[17] Lum also appeared wearing a Hanshin Tigers uniform in a series of numbered collector covers of the Daily Sports (a daily sports newspaper published in Japan) from 2003-08-12 to 2003-09-15.[18]Comiket organiser Ichikawa Koichi has described Lum Invader as being both the source of moe and the first tsundere,[19] a character type which alternates between being harsh and being loving. Bome, a sculptor of anime-style figurines, felt that Lum was the first female lead character in a shōnen manga work, and was inspired by Lum to create a line of "oni-musume" (she-devil) figurines.[20] In the 1983 edition of the Anime Grand Prix, Lum was ranked second place behind Misa Hayase from Super Dimension Fortress Macross.[21]Matthew Sweet introduced many people in the United States to Lum through clips in his music video "I've Been Waiting".[22] Sweet also has a tattoo of Lum.[22][23]
