Synopsis

Naota's life is not simple. He lives with his eccentric father and grandfather in a city distinguished by a gigantic hand-iron shaped factory perched on a hill. His brother's ex-girlfriend makes passes at him. And to top it all off, an impish, playful alien has run him over with her Vespa and smacked him in the head with a bass guitar! Little does he know that this is only the beginning of his involvement in an interplanetary ideological war.

The only other characters I could bother remembering their names were Naota and Haruko, since every other character is extremely uninteresting or just plain annoying like that girl that sexually harasses our 12 years old main character (which he likes, mind you). Every single volume ...
