Bored part-time motorcycle courier Takeru Takemoto has a close encounter of the third kind when he finds two alien girls in the glow of a strange light in the woods. Later, one of his friends encounters a second, similar girl. Based on an original concept by Hiroyuki Yamaga and Shoji Saeki, this science-fiction tale introduces alien entities that are not "living" organisms by our definition, but can mimic human beings. Their function is to help humans experience the beauty of emotion, such as joy or surprise-they often seem to achieve this by jiggling, the true hallmark of a Gainax anime. This is the 20th-anniversary work from the renowned studio, which previously collaborated with the SHAFT production house on Mahoromatic.
