Moving away from Tokyo and to a much less populated area, the young quiet girl Tsubasa must cope with making new friends. That's when an alien spaceship crash lands in her backyard. With aid from a living armour called a ribers, Tsubasa transforms into a bioandroid named Figure 17 and defeats the alien creature that caused the ship to crash here. The pilot, D.D. (as best as it can be pronounced by humans) thanks the girl and explains that several more of these creatures have escaped his transport ship and now reside across Japan. Upon separation from the ribers, Tsubasa stands face to face with a mirror image of herself, confusing both her and D.D. The ribers seems to have adopted her form instead of returning to its natural state. A very touching story unfurls from this chance meeting... Written by Anonymous

In my opinion, it's nice, bright and cute

I got the whole season collection from the library, watched a couple episodes, and it wasn't bad. Soul Mirror is about a little girl Tsubasa who was very shy in school. The episode is about Tsubasa getting a strange female twin who came out of nowhere so the twin is a very rare twin. Hikaru finds out that Tsubasa had no courage and had to teach her how to be more courageous in life so that Tsubasa can be more appeased in life. Winged Hearts is about Tsubasa caring about her new sister even more and then the two familiar females starts making new friends and that cheered Tsubasa up to be as happy as Hikaru was. Tsubasa also made a friend named Sho the one that was talking about dreaming about flying. I haven't watched Valient duet yet but soon i will, so far this is a very cute and enjoyable show. I think little secret is about Tsubasa caring about her friend Sho like more than everyone else and Sho became like her best friend ever and she enjoyed herself and the friendship has cheered up her day. She's kinda acting like she's her boyfriend though. Forever close is sort of like a kind of sad and emotional story. Sho Tsubasa's best friend suddenly dies and left Tsubasa downright miserable and very upset but she and Hikaru learns how to cheer up though but then....... Memories remain is about kinda sad at the end of episode 13 when Hikaru had to go because she was created so she couldn't last very long with Tsubasa so sadly, it was time for Hikaru to pass on to a better life which left Tsubasa filled with sorrow, grief, heartbroken and despair. SO she was likely more sad than when her best friend died. It was a very cute show, nicely drawn characters, art and good music and that kinda entertained me. My favorite character is Hikaru because she was a very active and joyous little kid. I'm so sorry she had to go but Overall: Great Show.
