In the midst of a violent invasion of Earth by unknown alien forces, photojournalist Wakatsuki Tetsuya comes across a scantily-clad alien woman, cutting a swath of death through the Terran ranks with her sword. After a chaotic struggle, Tetsuya is knocked unconscious, only to awaken aboard her starship.

This was my first anime ever when i was a child and i really have grown fond of it. It's very sci fi and yet theres comedy and romance if you love old animes for sure you'll like this one.There's some delightful characters in this anime. It also is a very good manga .
The music in the anime is pretty good to.

The OVA has some very obviously similarities with Urusei Yatsura, and you can easily guess that it was influenced by UY in the first place. An extraterrestrial girl comes to earth and takes a useless boy as her groom, against her people wishes, she uses a flames like power on one of the scenes agains the boyfriend and she even has a girl-friend that looks/behaves like Benten. For the anime version they even coloured her hair in green, that looking by the cover of the manga was yellow, and used the same Seyuu of Lum, Fumi Hirano, to do the voice work. Coincidence? I don't read more

Though the manga was very well written and illustrated, this adaptation was very insulting to it. The story was rushed and contained very few connections to the manga. Many of the important characters did not even appear in the anime. Many of the important story points were also absent. Earth barely had a cameo even though it was where half of the story took place. The ending, though less sad, is still far from the manga. Overall, if you have read the manga and loved it, stay away from this OVA.

The Outlanders manga by Johji Manabe spanned almost three dozen comic book issues in America, and was one of those series that any manga reader of the time collected. And, for most people my age, that was their first exposure to Outlanders and Manabe.

This OVA, by comparison, is just a 45-minute one-shot that sort of came and went without a splash; noteworthy only for the hilarously bad vanity-dub by Trish LeDoux.

Is it really fair to compare the two versions? I mean, the manga contains hundreds of pages of artwork and a broad, expansive read more
