I'll be honest. I have no idea what I just read.

This thing was a bizarre sci fi rom com. That's right. Sci-fi-rom-com.

The title character, Narue, is an alien. Er, half alien. Who can teleport. And get awkwardly stuck in walls so you can see her panties. And stand places so you can see her panties. And run so you can see her panties.

Then you have Kazuto, her boyfriend and only friend she's ever made on Earth. He's pretty normal. Well, as normal as a character who falls in love with a girl beats a

This is a story about a girl named Narue who happens to be a schoolgirl who happens to be a space alien. Kazuto is the boy who ends up falling in love with her and together they end up having some very wild and wonderful experiences including meeting alien assassins, other alien beings, alien spaceships that turn into people, and all the "regular" people that end up getting involved with them.

It's a really cute series.
