Synopsis

Sixth-grade student Yuri Otani is elected by her class to be one of the three members of Elementary School 9's "Alien Party," alongside fellow "Alien Fighters" Kumi Kawamura and Kasumi Tomine. They are expected to preferably capture, not kill, any aliens that invade school grounds. Aiding their endeavors are advisor Ms. Megumi Hisakawa and symbiotic aliens named "Borg" that attach to their host's head to protect them from danger.

The main reason why Yuri hates to be in the Alien Party is due to her fear of aliens. If she doesn't outright faint at the sight of them, then her fear keeps her frozen in place so that she can't get the job done. As such, Kumi, Kasumi, and Yuri's Borg have to pick up her slack. Ms. Hisakawa tells the girls that the better they can fuse with their Borgs, the more effective at their job they will be. But could there be another reason behind the existence of the Alien Party and the relationship between girls and Borgs?

This was one of the more messed up anime/manga I've come across.

Story
It was a trope that feels to close to home with adults forcing the world's problems on the younger generation. While the kids have no say in it what's so ever. And I cant help but question a lot of the methods that are used in this alien human society.

Characters
So they managed to have 2 over achievers in the main group and the main star is someone who has no business being there. You dont send in someone with a crippling fear of aliens to capture them.

May be some spoiler-ish

Mixed Feelings
Alien 9 is an anime with a unique and somewhat whimsical touch, featuring girls with distinct personalities and highly detailed, original alien creatures. The contrast between these girls and the aliens adds a fascinating element to the show.

The artwork by the creator is impressive, as it effectively conveys the speed and intensity of the battles between the girls and the aliens without relying heavily on speed lines.

The story of Alien 9 is undeniably complex, and while the meaning behind the title becomes clear towards the end, it doesn't provide a neatly wrapped-up conclusion. The overall enigmatic nature of the narrative is, in my opinion, one ...

This review will have spoilers, so be warned. If you want a quick opinion, this is a terrible mess of a series, so I wouldn't recommend it.

In Alien 9, three cute elementary school girls team up with cool frog aliens called Borgs to fight other aliens. Borgs can shoot drills out of their bodies, will do anything to protect their partner, and have cool, laid-back personalities. What could go wrong?

For reasons that were never adequately explained, elementary schools across Japan are training young girls to fight aliens, and it quickly becomes clear that there are almost no upsides to ...
