Level E (レベルE) Review

In the present day, hundreds of. extraterrestrial species walk the Earth. Some are pacifistic, others violent. Some are here for research purposes, others are career criminals. However, humans don’t know they are here.
Now, one more alien has arrived on Earth. One of the universe’s foremost geniuses with a personality that’s bound to attract all sorts of trouble.

Level E

Had reasonably high hopes for this series, it being created by the manga artist who did Yu Yu Hakusho. It is produced by the production company Studio Pierrot.  As of writing this review 5 episodes have aired in Japan.
My Initial thoughts from the begining of the series, that it was going to be a sci-fi drama, knowing the original authors previous series. But after episode 3, that thought changed – this is most definatly a comedy even more than a sci-fi.
I will try not to put to many spoilers in here 😉

 

Story

The story follows a alien prince, Baka (note this also translates into idiot in Japanese),  from the planet Dogra who crash lands on earth, and loses his memory. He forces himself into High school student Tsutsui Yukitata’s  apartment, and now Tsutsui’s high school life is never going to be the same again and he becomes the target of Baka-ouji’s amusment, and not surprisingly, as the series progresses, others are dragged into it.

Animation
Good, definatly, but not always consistant. But that’s not always a bad thing. A prime example would be to compare the episodes 3 & 4.

episode 3

ep3

 

Ep4

 

Rating: 8.5/10

Note: will update this post soon and eventually finish the review 😉
