    Naota's life is confined to going to school and living with his father and grandfather. The usually boring life in Mabase is rudely interrupted by the arrival of Haruhara Haruko, who bursts on the scene by running Naota over with her Vespa scooter and hitting him on the head with a Rickenbacker 4003 bass guitar. Later, Naota is shocked to find Haruko working in his house as a live-in maid.

    Haruko's search for the alien being Atomsk puts her at odds with Medical Mechanica. At the same time, Naota is being watched by Commander Amarao. The Commander believes Haruko is in love with Atomsk and Medical Mechanica is out to conquer the galaxy. The fortuitous circumstances get Naota involved in a three-way battle between Haruko, Amarao and Medical Mechanica.

    Have the episodes on my computer...for 6 epsidoes, this anime is a KNOCKOUT. The soundtrack is done by a band called The Pillows, and they did a damn good job. Overall one of my favorite animes. :)

    Kind of corny abbreviation though.

    Seeing as how Darkmatter enjoyed it, I think I will seriously start watching it next week.

    It's only 6 episodes, so it's very easily able to just be run through in one sitting without much 'effort' like some other shows take (like say, Marathonning through all Star Trek series from the original to Enterprise. Or even something like Full Metal Alchemist where it's a good size of episodes but not something over the topt like DBZ).

    That's what, just a bit under two and a half hours?

    Ya, it's short but very memorable. Especially the music, and the humor.

    They actually do that? Epic. I'd like them to cycle in Trigun/Cowboy Bebop/More Venture Bros. and maybe Aqua Teen reruns...

    I liked it when I watched it a long time ago.
