The 2011 anime "Ground Control To Psychoelectric Girl" is getting re-released on December 9th as a complete standard edition.
NIS America plans on releasing the standard edition to the Japanese anime series Ground Control To Psychoelectric Girl aka Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko, which is a complete edition in Blu-Ray and DVD. It will go on sale for $60 on December 9th. You can check out the trailer to see if you want to purchase Ground Control To Psychoelectric Girl.
This is a slice-of-life comedy drama, with a tinge of science-fiction, which focuses on the relationship between protagonist Makoto Niwa and his cousin Erio Towa.
Makoto, like many students in Japan, has to relocate because of his parents. With his parents having to relocate overseas because of work, Makoto moves in with his Aunt Meme. He embraces the situation as it can allow him to “live like an adolescent,” which means he has the least noble of intentions.
His plans come to a halt when he meets his unknown cousin Erio, who claims she is an alien from space.
Adjusting to his new life was difficult enough, now Makoto has to deal with an eccentric cousin he never knew existed in the first place.
For six months, under mysterious circumstances, Erio went missing. After she was rescued, Erio had no recollection of the events in that time span. She eventually allows herself to believe the existence of aliens and that she is one, too.
Erio lives like an outcast lounging around at home and wrapped around a futon most of the time. Her mother, Meme, tries to deal with Erio's eccentric behavior, but it makes her look just as silly.
The cousins grow closely together as Makoto tries proving to Erio that aliens do not exist. His predicament mirrors The Devil And Realist and Umineko: When They Cry, where the protagonists try to disprove the existence of anything that goes beyond science and logic. In The Devil And Realist, the hero does not believe in the supernatural let alone angels and demons. In Umineko: When They Cry, the hero tries to disprove the existence of magic.
He experiences things that are not normal, but Makoto isn't normal either. There are two sayings, “The pot calling the kettle black” and “if you live in a glass house, you shouldn't throw stones.” Makoto is not a normal student, as he issues “grades” to aspects of his adolescent life.
Adding to the cast are Makoto's fellow school peers, who have their own eccentricities.
Unlike anything licensed by FUNimation, NIS America does not usually dub works in English before they are released. Ground Control to Psychoelectric Girl remains in Japanese audio, but has English-language subtitles.
Other anime titles under the NIS America license are Toradora!, Persona: Trinity Soul, Cardcaptor Sakura, Occult Academy, Hanasaku Iroha, Brave Ten, Love Live!, YuruYuri, and The Eccentric Family.
