teenage sci fi that is the opposite teenage mutant ninja turtle
6 August 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

TV Tokyo is coming out with some great stuff. They are often shot differently, has good music score and source from some good materials.

And this is no exception, it has well explained science background (true of not), mix that with some serious teenage angst and you have a winning plot.

It all has to do with this old man next door.. who has memory issues (possible Alhzheimer's). The dad is a sci-fi writer, the son is one of the main characters along with his girl he likes at school. And as the title suggests, there's a transfer student.

It has sci-fi moments but that is not the point here. The point is about trust, kindness and consideration to others, especially strangers.

Each episode is only 25 min or so with very little repetition and that's the right length given the rather slow approach. Thumbs up nevertheless.
