In the 21st century, aliens have arrived on Earth and live among humans. In sleepy Enohana, the dirt-poor student Chigasaki Mayuko finds herself living together with NieA, a low-caste ("Under Seven") alien. While Mayuko struggles diligently to make ends meet, NieA seems to be totally unconcerned with the consequences of her actions. As the odd couple throws off the expected sparks, the wrecked alien mothership looms in the background...

Crazy to me that this show is rated under a 7 with 6000 views. This is a simple show with simple humor, art, and characters. It's like eating tasty food with a goofy old friend from grade school. Every episode leaves you feeling relaxed and happy to carry on your own normal life.

Recommended for adults who like slice of life plots displayed through subtle and relaxed art styles.

Mixed Feelings
A title born from the people responsible for the creation of Serial Experiments Lain. NieA_7 was based of a doujinshi of the same name by the esteemed Yoshitoshi ABe. Apparently, the staff of Lain wanted to create a very light-hearted title to follow up the sever tone found in Lain. In short: this doesn’t really work out in the show’s favor. Why? I’m getting there.The story revolves around a hard-working high-schooler Mayuko (Mayu), who lives on her own and struggles to make ends meet between her three low-wage jobs.

It's...a big mess.

This show has so many fluctuating episodes with different atmospheres, it's as if they're not part of the same story. You first think you're watching a light-hearted comedy, then a seinen, sometimes sci-fi, but wait a second, it's a comedy again. It's like this show doesn't have an identity, and it suffers tremendously.
You'd think that since one of the main characters is a discriminated, "unique" sort of alien, the plot would involve something about that identity. In the earlier episodes, Niea is clearly discriminated against, and I would suppose that her being an "under seven" would have some sort of meaning. Well, ...
