Why are aliens so attracted to Earth? It's a question that many fans of science fiction have pondered at one time or another, and there have been a number of different answers - vacations, natural resources, food and water, building a hyperspace by-pass, enslaving the population, experiments and general curiosity (to name a few). Of all the possible explanations though, boredom and baseball are two that probably wouldn't spring to mind.

Togashi Yoshihiro is a name that fans of Yu Yu Hakusho and Hunter x Hunter will recognise, and as popular as those two franchises are, like every mangaka he has a few skeletons buried in read more

Story – Imagine if aliens resided on Earth in disguise alongside us humans! There would be aggressive aliens, peaceful aliens, and aliens that are on the verge of extinction. Not noticing their presence, they would be right under our noses living with us in harmony. That’s until Prince Baka shows up in baseball star, Tsutsui’s apartment…

Characters – There’s a huge variety of different aliens in this series and it’s certainly interesting to watch them! From flesh-eating aliens to alien assassins, new species are always being introduced to the show. The little backstories created for each alien race were also all different and exciting.

Shounen anime has continued to experience an unabated spike in recent years, and shounen comedy, specifically, has had quite a few entries recently with more coming up every season. Many of these titles have not been all that great, so when Level E was first announced many people, myself including, were skeptical and expectations weren’t all that high. But after finishing the anime I must say it not only exceeded my expectations but it also turned out to be a pleasant surprise; I mean, the kind of pleasant surprise that makes you feel read more

I find it rare to find shows I regarded in poor light in the past are able to rise up to the level of something really special. Not to say that it hasn’t happened ever, but usually the case is that when you watch more things, the shows you once thought were good tend to get old or loose something overtime. It’s a special case to find shows getting significantly better as time goes by. For me at least, Level E was one of those pleasant surprises.

Level E is a comedy sci-fi show made up of many different stories revolving around Prince Baka, an alien read more

Recommendations

Comedy with surreal setting. Putting sci-fi elements into the realistic environment. Can be looked as both a pure comedy show with action sidekicks, or animated action show with certain degree of comedy. Must admit that putting comedy in that kind of setting is also a lot of fun. If you only have experienced school-life love comedy then it's about time you try something else.
Both series are about young men meeting and coming to live with an alien (coincidentally both aliens have long blond hair and kind of similar character designs). Although Arakawa is more comedy focused, the comedic moments of Level E feel quite similar, as do Arakawa's dramatic parts.
Both of these storylines revolve around the subject of Aliens. In one, Level E, the aliens definatly exist and in the other, the existance of Aliens and other such things is in question. Both stories also revolve around characters with wonderful, crackish personalities.
They both center around aliens on earth with a mostly humorous take on it. Level C has a very unique and bright style which sometimes take somewhat dark turns. It also features an overly optimistic alien who annoys his human host.
Both have Same comedy and atmosphere
The animation style and general feel of the series seems similar. Both plots put a paranormal conspiracy story right in the middle of a tight knit community of unusual characters and tell the story using quirky humor with a mysterious overtone.
