Despite being a refugee from an extinct planet, having an alcoholic as a father and an airhead for a mother, Maris' biggest problem is that she's a Thanatosian. Considering that Thanatosians are six times stronger than the average Earthling it shouldn't be such a curse, especially in a galaxy where violence is rife. But the accidental destruction she wreaks on everything she touches —even with the exotic alloy restraints she wears— means she's constantly in debt. Every mission she's assigned to by the Inter-Galactic Space Patrol becomes a cash-drain when all the damages are docked from her wage.

But when she's selected to rescue the rich and sexy Kogane Maru it's like a dream come true. After setting him free from the terror of his ruthless kidnapper his eternal gratitude will surely guarantee marriage —and an end to all her financial headaches.

I have no idea what a choujo is.

The Choujo is an OVA adaptation of a one-shot by Takahashi Rumiko, the mangaka behind Inuyasha/Ranma/the rest. It stars Maris, an alien with super strength who conveniently looks exactly like a normal human. Because of her race’s strength, she finds herself constantly breaking things, throwing her into crippling debt. Shenanigans and intense real-life legal battles ensue.

I wouldn’t call it terrible, but I certainly wouldn’t call it good. It’s mostly generic 80s space OVA with guitar solo ridden soundtrack. There’s some cool bits, but a lot of the time it’s just hard to care read more

The Choujo is a part of the Rumik World series of OVAs, none of which I've seen. It came out in 1986 from Studio Pierrot. Yes, the same studio that worked on Yuu Yuu Hakusho & Osomatsu-san. So, how does this compare to their other works I've seen?


We open with Maris, a survivor from an extinct planet, beating the shit out of some bad guys as part of her duty for the Intergalactic Space Patrol. She goes on vacation and tries to earn some extra money, as her parents break things constantly. That's when she's given a big, important job to rescue a kidnapped read more

This is my 2nd Rumic World ova i,ve seen from the 5 part metaserie's , but i gotta write a review about it because i loooooove Maris the choujo( from the over the top P.O.V) and i have the feeling that female charachters had given more respect back then compared to today , reason:
despite the stereotypical highschoolgirls in anime and sometimes bimbo's ,quite some female counterparts had a tough, strong chara development without airheaded fuckups of today, Yes they did some girly things that looked funny and redicilous at the same time but when it came to it, keeping their spirits up and read more

An experimental anime that didnt quite know what it wanted to be. This was one of the first impressions i got when i watched this. A strange little OVA from the mid 80s that features a rather poor (literally) heroine who is unhappy with her life due to poverty, parents who are even poorer and the fact her homeplanet was blown up, which we do not get any further information about because apparently the author thought it was good idea to have a plothole in his story instead of giving an explanation on what is going on, which really would have not taken too read more
