|Please Save My Earth
|Boku no Chikyu o Mamotte
|From the manga by HIWATARI Saki, published in Hana to Yume magazine.
6 OVAs, 30m each.
|The story concerns a group of young people who realise that they are in fact reincarnations of human-like aliens who had an observation post on our Moon many years ago, and who died out because of an incurable plague. They all have similar vivid dreams of the aliens, and several of them develop psychic powers.
| Present-day Tokyo, with the Tokyo Tower in the distance, an anxious schoolgirl, a boisterous small boy who is afraid of a cat as though he had never seen one before, her teenage male friends, her ordinary family- these are the ingredients of the opening of PLEASE SAVE MY EARTH (aka Protect My Earth). The boy survives what should have been a fatal fall from a balcony, then some really weird stuff happens.
The character designs are superb, and the voice acting is excellent, and the combination almost makes one forget one is watching animation. The interplay of communication and emotion between the various characters is superbly conveyed. Volume #2 has more interesting goings on, with a biker gang attack, and introducing subsiduary adult characters. Alice and her two school friends make contact via a magazine "BOO" with two more young people who are interested in strange space stuff. The high standard of #1 is maintained.
The series overall has a detailed and realistic look; it looks great but really needs to be seen with subtitles. (A fan-subbed version exists) Episodes #1-#6 and a movie/compilation exist.
