They uncover a startling truth: the dreams are actually memories of past lives - all seven had been a community of alien scientists who were stationed on the moon to observe and study the Earth. But they discover that the community came to a mysterious and tragic end... and the group faces a disturbing idea: could the deeds, events and memories of a previous incarnation impact on a current one? The group now strives to ... Written by Q. Leo Rahman

Fantastic anime
22 November 2002 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

Please save my Earth surprised me with its quality.. Superb, graceful character design, excellent story, sublime music (Hajime Mizoguchi, Yoko Kanno), a lot of emotion.. this OAV is taken from the first issues of the manga, but transcends them with much talent, bringing incredible emotion to the already inspired manga..
