    Ogikubo is the name of the specially designated area in space in the Milky Way where Earthlings and aliens can live together. Luluco is a female middle school student who lives with her father, and no matter where she is, Luluco is a common, "super normal" girl. As she is living her normal life, one day the mysterious transfer student ΑΩ Nova abruptly appears before her. That meeting will change Luluco's fate.

    Episode 1

    Trigger is known for their crazy style of animation and bizarre movements, and this is exactly what happens here. Poor Luluco just wants to be normal, but everything around her is anything but normal. Father somehow ends up eating a time capsule pill to become a popsicle, and Luluco reluctantly becomes an officer when a cheater is found and causes a ruckus. Luluco gets arrested, and then she's free, or maybe not. That was very funny, and certainly for a short that makes this show something I'll look forward to every week.

      Hmmm, didn't really find the episode all that amazing, but;

      wow that ED. really nice. The visual composition and TeddyLoid and Bonjour Suzuki teaming up couldn't be more perfect.

        It was amusingly nutty, but I have my doubts they'll be able to sustain that level of absurd silliness. Thus, not sure yet whether this show will be able to continue to interest me.

          Re: Episode 1

          This was quite amusing. The ridiculousness is done right here. Luluco wants to live a normal life in her abnormal city. Her dad accidently eats freeze pills which were present on the table for some inexplicable reason and he freezes up. Lol he even breaks. Luluco goes to his office to have him fixed and she meets the flaming skeleton officer who arrests her twice and frees her twice. Lol that was stupid. And poor Luluco has to become a space patrol officer to earn money to fix her dad and to stop aliens she turns into a gun. That was all stupid. Poor Luluco's normal life has been ruined in a flash.

            That was cute and really, really silly. Imashi strikes again. Can't wait for more.

              About what I'd expect from an Imaishi short. Better than a lot of them, but still nothing to actually care about, so no reason to stick around.

                Episode 2

                Here comes a new student appearing from inside a meteor, and just like with Luluco, Alpha Omega is a space patroller. But he is in total control of his power unlike with Luluco as he showed that criminal not to mess with him. That was pretty funny seeing him in action there turning into a gun, all while there's that black hole app that is designed to steal, Wooser included.

                  that was cute loved how the ED theme was used during Luluco's doki doki moment. Looks like Luluco's "to be continued" will be a regular thing. :D

                    Re: Episode 2

                    That was funny. Luluco got a partner, but unlike her, only his hand turns into a gun. Alpha looked like he'll be a bit normal, but when it came to interrogation, lol.
                    Also, I think the ED is starting to grow on me.

                      True to form, it's all allegory for puberty, of course.

                      I liked to see Imaishi keeping things off-kilter and absurd without trying to force in as many jokes as the first episode, keeping the pacing at a simmer instead of a boil.

                      So far, this is the only short this season that's interested me. Maybe it's because Teekyu's gone (again) and I still needed something wacky, but I enjoy Imaishi a bunch anyway. (And this is a lot less over-the-top than the one-off short he did for Animator Expo, for perspective.)

                        Episode 3

                        The person responsible for that illegal black hole app is none other than the classmate Midori Save the World, whose skin is ironically blue. She held Nova hostage with the app, but Luluco took a shot of faith and after ricocheting off the walls, the ceiling, and the floor so many times, it ends up hitting Midori. So justice has been served, but she wants to prove her worth and that she's truly sorry about what she did, so she volunteers to join the space patrol. Pretty good way to wrap up this "season" as the show calls it.

                          I'm calling it right now: Midori is the best character of the season .

                            Midori is going to make this series even better than it already is. Between her voice, her attitude and her hotness. So glad she's joining the patrol. Much better than her just vanishing from the show. Note this is assuming she isn't reduced to a random love rival and nothing more.

                              Yeah, Midori is a pretty good addition to things.

                              But on the "romance" front, it can't be a love triangle, can it, when one part of the triangle doesn't really care at all? (Clearly Nova is asexual and if told to marry a sea urchin will say "It doesn't really matter to me" ).
