Alien Nine is a stunning and evocative little series with tons to offer in each of its attempted facets. It commands the reader's attention with a starkly idiosyncratic approach to visuals, appeals to the emotions, makes you care for its characters and gives you plenty to think/cheer about.

One of the first things I noticed when I began reading was the nuances in visuals, namely, the juxtaposition of intentionally crude, cutsey character designs with frighteningly detailed, angular, gross images of alien's and their appendages. The effect this dichotomy creates remains consistent throughout the series, as the violence is never suppressed; Tomizawa pulls no punches in his read more

Curious and imaginative manga, falls a bit short due to inconclusive ending but it's short and intriguing read nonetheless that's easy to recommend to people looking for something more strange and unique in their fiction.

Story:
Alien 9's most remarkable point for me is the world Tomizawa manages to craft over mere 30 well paced chapters. Right off the bat it starts with a class choosing a new member for the alien party, a group of 6th graders tasked with taking care of regular alien threat besieging the school and it only gets weirder from there.

There's nothing unusual about Elementary School 9. It runs a trimester calendar year for grade 1-6 students, and like other schools in Japan, Elementary 9 receives near-weekly visits from animalistic aliens, which need to be captured and contained. But of course, this job falls onto the young shoulders of Elementary 9's “Alien Party.” At the start of every school year, one sixth grader from each homeroom is elected to serve their final year of elementary on the Alien Party. For the skittish Yuri Otani, having to corral alien creatures while donning rollerblades and putting a symbiotic alien on her head totally sucks. Unable to leave read more
