Inexplicably enchanting

on 1/19/2013

Figure 17 has some sci-fi elements in it but it is not really a science fiction story. The alien-fighting and UFO-mystery scenes are actually among the least interesting in the show. Mostly this beautifully animated story is a meditation on childhood, loneliness, friendship, responsibility and many other aspects of growing up. None of this is new -- but it is rare to find it handled with such sensitivity and charm. Read More

Product Overview

Tsubasa is an elementary school girl who just moved to Hokkaido. Without any friends in her new school, she becomes more and more withdrawn. Then late one night, she sees a shooting star and follows it to a downed alien spacecraft. The alien gives her a clone named Hikaru, who is as outgoing as Tsubasa is quiet. As Tsubasa teaches her new companion about the world, she rediscovers it herself. When less personable aliens begin arriving, Tsubasa and Hikaru unite to form the Figure 17, a bio-humanoid combat system.

Editors Note
Note When a young girl named Tsubasa follows a shooting star only to find that it is actually a spacecraft that has fallen to Earth, she meets a friendly alien who gives her a clone of herself named Hikaru. Although physically indistinguishable from Tsubasa, Hikaru's personality is almost the polar opposite of Tsubasa. However, when hostile aliens begin making their way to Earth, Tsubasa finds that she can merge with Hikaru to form Figure 17, a bio-humanoid combat system that may be the Earth's only hope against the extraterrestrial invaders.
