|"There's nothing I can do to make a difference. Wars will be fought. People will die," Takeru said. "I'll never matter."|
He didn't know how wrong he was. Takeru has a very special place in this universe. And he doesn't know how special until he meets a beautiful girl who falls from the stars.
Hikari seems to have no memory of who she is (or, for that matter, where her clothes are). So Takeru takes her into his care. And that's when things get nasty.
Hikari is not like other girls. Her name may mean "light," but she has a dark history - and an even darker future. One that will change Takeru and his friends forever, and show them all just how beautiful yet cruel this universe can be!
Contains episodes 1-4!
Editor's NoteThe acclaimed animation studio Gainax (NEON GENESIS EVANGELION) continues its run of groundbreaking anime series with THIS UGLY YET BEAUTIFUL WORLD. The series centers around a deeply pessimistic slacker named Takeru, who has given up on ever finding the perfect girl or any kind of meaning in his life. But Takeru's world soon brightens up on both fronts when he saves the life of a mysterious, amnesiac girl and discovers that he has the ability to transform into a powerful superhero. Alternating intense action sequences with racy sexual comedy, the stunningly animated series kicks off with these first four episodes.

Customer Reviews of This Ugly Yet Beautiful World-V01-Falling Star
i have already viewed this anime in its entirety, and all i can say is that it is quite unique and definetly worth looking into. dont worry, yes it does have alot of fanservice, but it does deliver an interesting story a little later into the series. it is definitely unique. plus the opening theme is so strange that its awesome. just one more thing, if you think that it is just a fanservice fest, you should see "he is my master", which was also done by gainax
