Photon Earth is a young and gentle boy with superhuman strength and "Baka" (meaning "idiot" in Japanese) scribbled on his forehead (apparently by his troublemaking friend Aun Freya). One day, he finds himself engaged to the beautiful fugitive pilot Keyne Acqua after writing "baka" on her forehead. And that's the least of his worries as he must protect both Aun and Keyne from the evil Papacharino, who seeks to steal the secrets of "Aho" (another word for idiot) energy from Keyne's grandfather's ship.

Think Star wars, then imagine Luke Skywalker being a immensely strong but retarded kid who only cares about food, big boobs and keeping promises. Imagine Darth Vader as a pervert in striped underwear. The stormtroopers are cute and optimistic cheerleader blobs of lard. And Princess Leia actually looks good...

Great music, some kind of 80's rock anthems which I like. Dope voice acting.

Jeez, where can I begin? Photon is a lot of things. It's funny, it's cute, it's often times extremely perverted, and it's even pretty creepy here and there. The animes opening scene, for example, involves the beautiful Ms. Acqua running from the evil Papacharino while stripping off all of her cloths in order to ditch a tracking device. Not perverted enough for you? Well things get worse from there. To be honest, if it weren't for the perversion this might actually make for a great family series, but that's a whole other subject all together. The series is mostly about the young Photon Earth and ...

It is a must see Anime.

Photon Earth is the main protagonist, he is extremely strong and fights using a quarterstaff made of black crystal. Has the word "baka" scribbled across his forehead by Aun in ...
