(W) Studio Gainax (A/CA) Hajime Ueda
Based on the hit Anime and from the Creative Team Gainax who are to Anime what CLAMP is to Manga! From the mind of Hideaki Anno (Neon Genesis Evangelion) comes this bizarre tale of adolescence in a nonsensical world. Naota’s life isn’t simple. He lives with his eccentric father and grandfather in a city marked by a gigantic hand-iron shaped factory perched on a hill. So the last thing he needs is for his brother’s ex-girlfriend to make passes at him or for an impish, playful alien to smack him in the head with a bass guitar and then insinuates herself into his family.
