Episode Summaries

Episode 1: Daikyu Elementary Anti-Alien Squad

Kumi and Kasumi try on their borgs for the first time.

A new year starts at Division 9 Elementary School and each class begin handing out duties. Amongst the usual roles like class president however there is one that is rather unique, Alien Fighter. Yuri is in her final year of school and is shocked to find out that she has been elected to join the Alien Party. This is her worst nightmare, she hates aliens. Her worst fears are realised as she attends the first meeting and learns that not only must she catch any aliens that attack the school but also wear an alien on her head! This is known as a borg, a parasite creature who depends on the host. Each member of the Alien Party is given a borg which have wings for defense and the power to attack others by extending long and flexible drills. The other members of the party are smart, confident Kumi and Kasumi who seems to be good at everything she puts her mind to. Both volunteered to join the Alien Party, but why? There's not much time to chat as the trio are sent out with nets and rollerblades to skate after the latest alien running around the school. Yuri struggles to deal with her responsibilities and looks to others for help, but with nowhere to turn she must keep on regardless. As new threats appear at the school, Yuri, Kumi and Kasumi must learn to work together to fight the alien invasion. But is their Alien Party Advisor telling them everything they need to know?

Episode 2: Boredom, Spaceship and Overgrowth

Kumi extends her wings and drills whilst Yuri stands behind her.

It's business as usual for the Alien Party as a strange spaceship crash lands at the school. Yuri gains a little bit of confidence during this task but is soon overwhelmed by a strange new threat. Boys with aliens attached to their heads! But why are they after Yuri's blood? As the pressure mounts, the team are pushed even further to try and work together. They learn a little more about each other in the process and grow closer. But they can not even imagine the next terror awaiting them, an incident that will make each member of the team know what real fear means.

Episode 3: Summer vacation, Borg and Death

The Alien Party team and Yuri's friend, Miyu, stand on a sunlit balcony. Kumi, Kasumi and Miyu punch the air.

After the terrifying events of the previous episode, the summer break is extremely welcome. In an effort to forget their worries the team head off to the beach for a holiday full of different activities. Now that they understand each other a bit better it becomes a perfect opportunity to really show each other how much their new friendship means to them. However the summer can not last forever and Yuri fears what will happen upon returning to school. Despite this she is determined to not let her new friends down. Her efforts are soon shaken up however as a strange and very large alien literally lands on top of the school! But why doesn't it attack? Could it be secretly plotting something? Only Kasumi can answer.

Episode 4: The end of the beginning

Chisa Okada, the school principal, looks forwards sternly whilst her hair sticks out in all directions in the form of drills.

Kasumi is missing and the remaining team members get into their Alien Party outfits and borgs before being sent on a rescue mission to save their friend from a deadly threat. However this will be a battle unlike any other they have ever faced. It will test not only their friendship but also make them question who they can depend upon in the world. Although the teachers seem to know more than they are willing to say, they can not help the girls. They are on their own to face the overwhelming dangers. But what does it really mean to be alone?
