Mao Onigawara is a happy 8-year-old grade-schooler and the granddaughter of Chief of Staff of Ground Defense Force. Equipped with her cloverleaf-shaped badge which enables her to transform (but gives her no special power whatsoever), Mao and her best friends (granddaughters of Chief of Staff of Air and Marine Defense Force, respectively) will defend Japan against the invasion from "cute aliens," who are way too cute to be dealt with by regular armed forces.

Clumsiness, stupidity, nonsense, moe and the nasty graphics - all of the things we starve to see were present, not to mention the overwhelmingly careless final of that very first episode that drowned me into laughter for read more
