Recommended for: Fans of harmless animals who are more than they seem

This is a great little comedy about a frog-like alien who gets stranded with his team on earth after a botched invasion attempt and "captured" by a young boy and his family. The frog's various attempts to get the upper hand on his captors/friends (you're never really sure which it is) are hilarious and his determination to continue the invasion...well, you don't know whether to laugh at him or cheer for him. It doesn't help the "invasion" that he begins to show signs of being manga-obsessed. However, it isn't until the appearance of "multiple personality" afflicted Private Tamama (another alien of the same species) that the story really takes off. (Note: the book describes him as having multiple personalities but I think he's just mercurial regarding certain aliens.)

There's a fair amount of fan service in this volume, mostly panty shots, but nothing that detracts from the story itself. It's a good laugh and a nice twist on the end of the world as we know it.
