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

'Level E' is based on a short SF comedy manga by Togashi Yoshihiro, the author of 'Yuu Yuu Hakusho', and 'Hunter X Hunter' manga series. The first episode was a perfect introduction to the series. The story begins with sudden appearance of a self-proclaimed alien in the form of a flamboyant soft-spoken blond young man. Baka prince has a strange sense of humor, and everyone around him get dragged into troublesome situations because of his selfish and often reckless actions.

The story development in this series is characterized by its spontaneity. One event naturally leads to another as the premise and character personalities are subtly exposed. read more

"This planet is full of liars"
"But it gets us a lot of cash"

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

Think of it this way. This anime is good enough for someone to join specifically to add flesh to the reviews for it.

I saw this floating around on the net a while ago. I saw the word 'sci-fi' and ran. Came back once or twice but the other reviews recommended Yu-yu hakusho and Gintama (both animes that didn't impress me all too much).

Then, yesterday, I ran out of stuff to watch so I decided to give it a go.

Turns out, IT'S FANTASTIC. Think hilarity, outrageous humour, an occasional dirty jokes and funky twists and turns that have you cracking up in no time. The read more

Recommendations

Anime: Gintama
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.

Anime: Arakawa Under the Bridge
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.

Anime: Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin
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. 
reportRecommended by Dinamet7
Anime: Tsuritama
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. 
reportRecommended by Alvinna
Anime: Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko
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.

Anime: Sakigake!! Cromartie Koukou
Both series is full with stupidity humor and random comedy joke.
