Learn Japanese with Anime: “Ground Control to Psychoelectric Girl” (Proficiency Level)


Webmaster Review

83% Brilliant

The story begins with a bizarre twist, but surprisingly it is well organized. There are many unknown characters, but the story is reassuring. The staging is excellent and the ability of the production company's shaft is shown. The characters are very cute and full of individuality, but there is a problem with the stability of the drawing. I want you to watch it without hurdles. The background music, the production, and the world view are very unique, and the ED is elaborated every time and I have a good impression. Anyway, Erio is so cute, let's watch it to love her.

2. Synopsis

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.
