Alice is a normal teenaged girl living in Tokyo. When she’s talked into babysitting one of her neighbour’s kids, Rin (who happens to be in love with her) and he accidentally falls off the balcony, things start getting strange. When Rin awakes in the hospital he begins to manifest mysterious psychic powers. Then there are Alice’s classmates, Jinpachi and Issei, who have been having the same dreams ever since middle school...dreams in which they are two of 7 alien scientists living on the moon, watching over the young Earth (and one of them, Issei, is a woman in the dreams!). It turns out that they’re seeing memories of their past lives. Alice begins to have the same dreams in which she’s another of the scientists, so the three of them decide to try and find the rest of the ‘team’. Meanwhile, Rin is becoming more and more unhinged and vengeful as he stalks a rich kid who runs a local gang, and uses his victim’s connections to strike out at Jinpachi and Issei out of jealousy for Alice’s affections.
I’m not quite sure what to say about this...great art and fantastic music (by Yoko Kanno btw)...but BLOODY CONFUSING! Not something you want to watch only once as you are likely to be more than a little lost. Once you get down to it though, this is a really nice series, but it ends way too abruptly. They really should have drawn it out further than the six episodes. Aside from that it is a nice, intelligent series that most can get into pretty easily...after a while =)
