Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko — First Impression

In the first episode of Denpa Onna, a boy moves from the country to the city and begins to live with his aunt and her daughter. However, her daughter claims to be an alien and stays rolled up in a mattress.

I’m not quite sure what to think about this one. It had its good points, like the main character complaining about how he hasn’t had any chances with girls as he blows off the girl on the train. SHAFT also managed to tune down its usual SHAFT-ness which may be a good sign. I liked the female lead while she was in the mattress, but after she came out and turned out to be a childish moeblob warning sirens started blaring. I prefer insanity when it isn’t just an excuse to make girls look cute and fall on top of people, and this is exactly what I fear is going to happen. But the show isn’t that funny and I doubt the plot will be anything serious, so cuteness is the direction I can best see them going in, unfortunately….
