Average Rating

Makoto Niwa meticulously tallies the amount of positive and negative youthful experiences he engages in as if to grade his own life. When his parents go overseas, he moves to a new town to live with his aunt, welcoming the change and ready for a fresh start. However, as ordinary as he had imagined his adolescence to be, he could never have taken the existence of an enigmatic long-lost cousin into account. Upon moving into his aunt's house, he discovers the cousin he never knew about: Erio Touwa. Despite being Makoto's age, she couldn't be more different: Erio chooses to wrap herself in a futon all day rather than to go to school. She even claims to be an alien, and with a speech pattern and personality to back it up, any chance of Makoto's dreamt-of normal life is instantly tossed out the window. As he meets a string of other eccentric girls in town, Makoto must face the possibility of seeing his youth points in the red. However, he might be surprised by how thrilling an abnormal youth can be.

This is so underrated. I laughed so much and wish it had a second season


Above average comedy but I thought it would of been better than it was.


For once watchmojo was right…


The main story was boring. The ending drops a bombshell and then you realize it is over and you get mad.


The anime itself doesn’t have much substance. Honestly, the only reason to watch this is for Emiri Kato’s performance as Ryuuko.


A shut-in NEET with amnesia attempts to reintegrate into society.


Great soundtrack. I only really laughed at the 1st episode & the rest of the series gets slow. Erio is super cute so there’s that.
