This multi-season series of Japanese Anime, centers around a teenager who is so small for his age, that he grew up being beat up by the girls of his school, so much and so often that he's developed an acute case of gynophobia, not just fearing all girls, but breaking out in hives every time he comes into contact with any.
This includes the girl next door, who, unlike most of the rest, has a crush on him, in spite of being just as willing as the rest to react violently to his faux pa's.
The one exception to his gynophobic reaction, is a girl he meets on another planet, who follows him to earth, and stays with him-- And that's when the adventures really begin! Add to the mix an insanely rich androphobic guy, his literal witch of a little sister, their not-so-covert security/intelligence team, a darling but androphobic secret agent from the other planet, a young sorceress from the other planet, and more, and you can't help but hope the fun doesn't end.
There is nudity, which for many folks might be too taboo to begin to watch the series enough to begin to enjoy it, but, the messages in many of the episodes indicate that the creators are including the nudity as a mode of introducing the taboos of nudism (and beyond) and a portrayal of the need for less nudity (and beyond) in social settings, especially among teens, so, I, for one, believe the nudity to be necessary, not only from the standpoint of ratings, but, as a basis from which to portray the taboos around which many of the episodes revolve.
More anime should be like this!
