||With a plot and tone similar to CHOBITS, DEARS is an anime comedy that combines science fiction and ecchi (playful nudity and sex) elements. After crash-landing in Tokyo, the alien women known as DearS are granted Japanese citizenship and enter into a program to learn the human language and culture. Everyone in the world is fascinated with these interstellar visitors--except Takeya. So of course it is Takeya who discovers Ren, a DearS who has gone missing and is roaming the streets, exhausted and starving. But when he takes Ren home to care for her, she develops an unhealthy attachment to the young man, leading to many embarrassing and humorous situations. In the episodes that comprise DEARS: 3RD CONTACT, VOLUME 3, Miu tries to talk Ren into a major battle, but Miu becomes hesitant as she learns the stakes. Meanwhile, Neneko seeks Ren and Miu to model her costumes, and the show results in a trip to a hot springs resort.
