Sweet Japanese weirdness
3 September 2013 | by (San Jose, Costa Rica) – See all my reviews

Yuka is a normal happy schoolgirl who happens to have psychic powers. When another girl possessed by an interdimensional being arrives at school and tries to impose a military style discipline, Yuka finds herself in the moral obligation to defend humanity against the oppressive desires of the interdimensional being who happens to be the universe itself! (He also comes from Venus).

The film is funny, weird and cute at the same time. Maybe it lacked some character development and coherence specially through the second half but maybe it was just the bad translation which made it a bit senseless from time to time. Still a cute movie which will please fans of school-themed animes and weird Japanese stories.
